I just heard a couple of days ago that an employee was fired by HR for booking a first class ticket that was *approved* by their direct management. The employee was required to make a trip for a work function that involved C-levels and others from their department in a team building type of event. The employee spent their own money to make this, and to boot is a single mom.
Finally got over my fear of being fired and just started declining meetings that are a waste of my time. No backlash. Everything was fine. To think how many hours of my life I’ve wasted….
Hi everyone, really sorry to hear about the recent layoffs. I would be happy to refer to KPMG—please DM me if you’re interested.
Why did Deloitte’s federal practice have layoffs? Given that the clients are large government entities. I can understand it happening in commercial but federal makes no sense
Accenture CEO said on earnings call that accelerated performance cycle will help manage low performers at greater pace if need to pull levers.
More layoffs are incoming soon.
About last layoffs, we didn't do any layoffs it's cost adjustments mostly in operation centers and restructure due new growth model. 🤷♂️
So, a spot I made (concept to completion) got shelved due to COVID forcing the client’s marketing plan to change. During that time, my partner and I were laid off. Recently, the spot aired, but the agency credits a different team for the work – me, my parter, and my CDs aren’t listed. Do I ask the agency to correct it? Just throw it in my book with explanation? Just take the L and chalk it up to that being how the industry is?
An agency I used to work at had another round of layoffs today bringing the total number of people who have lost their job to nearly 40. They then went on to post across social media today about the One Show awards they won. The lack of humanity in this industry is disgusting.
The severance package at Meta for laid off employees almost makes it nice to be laid off depending on what your personal situation is….. personally wouldn’t mind getting 4+ months of full pay to reset and think about what’s next 😬
I was affected by layoffs about a month ago and urgently looking for a good immigration lawyer. The lawyer should be experienced in handling this 60 day grace period situation and developing alternate strategies - such as change of status to B1/B2 or applying to jobs from India. There is a lot of noise and wrong information going in the market so looking for good recommendations.
I have very little time left for my grace period to end and need a consultation soon. Thanks
Layoffs on layoffs these days. How do you think the job market will fare (NYC especially) the rest of 2018 and beyond?
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. 🖕🏻
With a recession looming, how concerned should I be with corporate layoffs. Accepted a job with a big4 and don’t start till mid summer.
Pretty sure I’m getting laid off tomorrow morning. Our company was acquired and now I’ve got a meeting at 8am with head of HR & our VP to “discuss next steps” for my position. I wish they’d just put it in an email and save me the next 24 hrs of stressing but here we are.. any advice on questions, etc I should prepare before tomorrows meeting? Talk about worst time of year to lose your job 😭 I’m also expecting so it’s adding to my stress. Ugh.
Laid off! 🤕
Are the layoffs finished? Or are they still going on? I am trying to figure out if I in the green for now.

We are having our dog in our wedding (just the ceremony). She is very good with people and excitement generally. However, There have been times on walks when a stranger or child has tried to pet her by sticking their hands in her face or petting her on the head (which apparently most dogs don't like) and she got nervous. I'm a little worried that sone of the guests may do this and stress her out. Any advice on how to word invites to include something to the affect of: our dog will be there,

What are some key ways you balance stress and not taking it out on others/family? It's something I'm always working on but none of us are perfect. That said, I've made vast improvements. During the winter it's always harder as I feel many of my outlets are limited [like golf etc]
