I just had really intense feedback from my PML. I guess using "not getting fired" as my only goal for 2020 is seen as unprofessional and unmotivating. Any suggestions for goals to put in?

Do you care about your job and see career growth at the current firm? If yes, go to someone higher up who you work with and ask for feedback. Ask HOW they do things so you can use that process to see if your work improves. If you don’t care, honestly, best thing to do is to find something you care about. Accounting isn’t fun for everyone, and while I don’t think everyone needs to have passion at for their jobs, you still have to like it more often than not.

I'm all about that. Just rephrase it so I can copy and paste it in. Maybe I used administrative wrong. I think the goals site is pointless. Its fluff

What is the EY severance like for someone who has worked here for 7-9 years?

Have you ever negotiated a severance? Company ended my employment and wants me to sign a mutual non-disparagement, waive suing them, etc. but they didn't offer me any money. They are fully in the wrong, it's a disability related issue. My options are 1. Sign 2. Refuse to sign 3. Try to negotiate. 4. Sue them (contingent on attorney taking the case). I'd prefer to negotiate, but not sure that's realistic.

Just got fired.. any opportunities out there in North America. Strategy consultant, manager level ; experience in consumer markets: I heard technology sector is hiring. Open to relocation

OK gonna maybe open a can of worms here but I have to ask: it seems the sudden inflation we're seeing has taken the ins. ind. by surprise. The cost/expense projections done X yrs. ago for this and poss'y subsequent yrs. have been thrown off. Costs to repair/replace cars have shot up unexpectedly. Same for houses. Med costs have all gone up. Ins. cos. have relatively thin profit margins to begin with. There's talk of cost-cutting measures-- incl. layoffs. How realistic are these concerns?

Concern on going to another FAANG is getting de-leveled/starting over. L5 is nebulous middle management, and it’s easy to get lost in the shuffle.
