When does the 60 day grace period start - after lay off announcement or after last severance paycheck? Thanks
Can you get fired while you are pregnant in NJ? My work has been slightly affected due to what I am going through but my manager sent me a long email today pointing the things that had to be fixed. We have weekly one on one calls to discuss work. Maybe they are collecting evidence before firing me.
Just me or is it really difficult to create circles and lasting friend groups after 30 here? Moved here in 2019 which at the point was getting my bearings, in 2020 was layoffs and lockdowns and this year was also layoffs and regaining. Eat dinner solo a lot and it sucks. But also just getting people (man/woman no difference) to say yes to casually going and getting food and various places is like pulling teeth.
How do you roll with the punches? When I make even a small mistake that anyone could make my mind immediately goes to "well that's that, I'm getting fired"
Was miserable and depressed last year. Got laid off. Unemployed for a few months. Took some crappy freelance. Moved cities. New job. Excited. Worked super hard. Sold 2 killer ideas in my first month!🎉
Not to be a debbie, but can anyone from the last recession tell me more about layoffs? When would you expect that to happen if things continue as is? And does what account you work on matter?
Any USDC layoffs so far?
Recently laid off at a small gov contracting firm (non cyclical to this economy). My wife and I are expecting and thankfully live below our means. She has a great job too, thankfully…How should I maximize my severance and what should I ask for beyond cash? They offered 2 months of cash and my stock paid out. I was employed for 2 years. They at one point extended the potential of partnership and I’d like more, and they have the money. Should I ask for lump sum or spread it out?
I am trying to get fired from my Management Consulting job so I can get paid severance! Any ideas best ways to get fired and enjoy some time off?
Tough day. Layoffs at JL, Ogilvy, huge and R/GA
Partners: How do some partners get fired? I know that on the surface it is due to their performance, but i am curious if you have any data points or observations on any underlying drivers. I work for a global firm, and though most partners I know are lifers, i personally have worked with a couple partners who were counseled out. They were seemingly good, competent consultants good at structuring problems. They cared about junior consultants. Didnt see any issues with clients..
Genuine question: why do people bill over 2100 in this market? I can see how wanting to be a “good associate” could get you to agree to go slightly above your hours requirement, but don’t understand how people end up billing 2500+ hours… do you really think you’d get fired if you said no to more work? Is someone legitimately forcing you to work that much? Don’t see how extra bonuses are worth it either.
Deloitte PPMD 🐟, how did the PPMD promotion rules change over last two years? Is it still doable to become partner / principal? It seems that “everyone” is promoted to MD lately.
Long shot, but has anyone used ManiMe? I used to get dip manicures twice a month but have stopped due to covid. I have tired to do my nails myself and it’s hilariously awful. I saw these as another option but am wondering if they actually last the full two weeks?
Hi Folks, I've got a job offer from a small IT company. But before releasing the offer letter, they want me to accept a terms and conditions form which has this 10th point as shown in picture. It states failing to join them will result in paying 2 months of salary that's around 130000 rs. Is it for real? If I get a better offer somewhere else ane don't join them, will I really have to pay this to them? Please help friends. What should I do?

I think it’s sad that so many biglaw attorneys feel somehow trapped, for whatever the reason. The culture is so toxic, the work is backbreaking and the life style is crushing.
Backpack recommendations? Starting at MBB soon.
How difficult would it be to exit into MBB from Big 4 financial services consulting? Obviously it’s dependent on the candidate, but is this a switch one can accomplish without going back for an MBA?

Anyone start a new job remotely and have tips to feel more integrated into the team/agency? I left my previous agency of 7 years and am now 3 months into a new gig but feel really disconnected, especially now that work is picking up. Team/agency culture used to be what got me through busy periods but having trouble finding that now. Lots of video calls and 1 on 1s to check in but still siloed in my home office. We all work remote from different states so going into our NY office seems pointless.
