I got laid off 6 months ago. Next week I finally start a new in-house job in the media industry. Looking back, I’m pretty sure I walked the plank off a sinking ship. But I’ll miss you crazy fishes 😘
If you’re at risk of getting laid off, who usually sets up the call? How does the process go?
Everyday I wake up with motivation that when I start to try and work immediately goes away. I cannot focus on any work and tell myself everyday that tomorrow/next week I will try. Anxious to be fired, but rated successfully at work (when I do i am fast and efficient). Started a new job this year and was remotivated but have since gone back to old ways. I can’t make myself do work - whatever that work may be. Has anyone experienced this?
Just laid off. I have so many feelings right now and feel so lost. To those who have gone/are going through this, where did you begin to pick up the pieces? (Cont)
Recently laid off, and overwhelmed by all the things I have to do. How do you prioritise and how do you cope? I feel like I could be working on job-hunting all day and night but is that healthy?

Receiving any negative/constructive feedback scares the sh*t out of me. I had a toxic previous job experience with a manager who used any small thing as a means to scare me out of employment. Now at my new place of employment, if I do get a constructive comment or something to work on, a lot of anxious thoughts run through my mind until I can somehow calm down and go back to working somewhat productively again - but I always have that fear of being fired over it. 😔
I left the firm recently and am slated to start a new job. But I’m terrified of being laid off (last one in, first one out). Any tips on how I can mentally and realistically prepare in case?

I am interviewing for an in house job. Large startup in Europe (had Series C and raised 150M) and is starting a US presence. They want to pay base and bonus but bonus is all RSUs/options. It’s significant (about 75% of all in comp). Are these entirely worthless if the company never goes public?
How do you handle not getting a promotion or bonus based on subjective reasoning? Would you stay with the firm? Context: Outperform my peers and exceed my goals, yet still denied.

How much of a salary increase (%) is standard or expected when switching consulting firms for a similar level / role? Currently at 150K and was offered 170K (13% increase) — obviously the total package needs to be considered but the base salary is arguably the most important factor. Appreciate your thoughts & any advice!
