I just got laid off, and I’m not even mad about the job, but they literally didn’t even tell my CD before they let me go, then asked me not to tell anyone before they announced it to the network. I’m sorry, but on what planet am I not hanging up from that call and immediately calling my CD? Which is exactly what I did. They locked me out of my computer so I couldn’t even pass off files, plus it locked me out MID-call where I was being let go. Very professional. Also, my CCO didn’t even know. 🖕🏻

How could your CCO and CD not know? Seems impossible. Anyway I know the sting of being let go. Just go get shitfaced, then go hang out at a beach and then...a few days later you will be washed clean with optimism and hope for your new chapter. You will be okay. ✌🏼

I am curious to hear your honest thoughts. I don’t know what other firms have done but my firm has fired people, furloughed people, cut pay, delayed promotions and hire dates, etc. but also has allocated a chunk of change above what has been given in the past to support social justice causes. While I support the cause I wonder how associates feel about this when frankly some of it is at their expense?

Internally transferred into FDD as an audit senior 3. My coach and partner have indicated that I’m still eligible for promotion to manager based on years of experience. I’m trying to gauge the actual likelihood of this happening. Obviously firms bring in audit managers at the manager level with no FDD experience but would love to know if it’s possible/likely to be promoted to manager with less than a year of experience. I’d advise anyone in audit to transfer sooner rather than later!
