I got laid off in April, and I’ve been doing ok, but starting to crack. Feel like I’m becoming super irrelevant and like my life isn’t moving forward. A lot of anxiety the last couple days, followed by exhaustion.
I can’t think properly for a brief that wants to join in on the conversation of what’s happening. I feel it’s inappropriate to do so, but my boss expects “creative” ideas from me. If I don’t deliver, I have a feeling I could get fired. How do you deal with this?
Recently got laid off. Looking for some referral in Program Management, Engagement Lead roles... Experiencing weird behavior more than once now. Gone through 4/5 round of interviews, everyone providing positive feedback and then absolute silence for weeks...
S& layoffs: Heard that 60% of new hires (1 year post undergrad) were let go in Dallas and Houston.
Welp! I think I’m getting fired. Had the client ask me point blank if we were going to hit a certain date with everything ready to go. Got on the phone and told the truth. Could not...
slowly realizing that maybe consulting isn’t for me after all, but I literally do not have any other idea what I could possibly do. not really a productive post, but just needed to get this off my chest. It feels like I’m just waiting for the day I get laid off or just go completely insane...
I’ve been laid off twice in the past 12 months. Both places were start ups, but I’m worried my whole career is going to be like this as a creative. It seems like we’re the first to go. Thoughts?
Can anyone share how they have terminated/laid off during a virtual only environment? Specifically several people at once. How does the process/logistics look? Wondering what is the best process/logistics to take for those being let go. Also, for those who stay, what worked best -communication wise? How have you handled equipment and any other security considerations given that the person(s) are not in the office.
Thoughts on moving to London in October? Is anyone back in office/planning too? Also anyone expecting a large amount of job cuts in consulting when furlough ends.....
I’m a Junior accountant, recent MBA grad in Finance, located in NYC, just got laid off due to a merger. Anybody hiring or know any opening positions?
Is there any way your coworkers could know ahead of time if somebody and who is getting fired soon? Or is it impossible for staffs/seniors to know this?
So, thoughts on starting own firm right now. Laid off and doesn't seem to be tons of firms recruiting. I think I can start off for 3k with my partner and try and kill whatever we can get.
Sorry to hear this, CP+B’ers...have some friends there who are safe for now, is this the last of layoffs there (CO and LA)? http://www.adweek.com/agencyspy/cpb-cuts-3-percent-of-staff-in-boulder-and-l-a-as-part-of-larger-restructuring/143982
Too many layoffs. The industry is just hurting too much. Time for client side. But tough to do as a Planner. Thanks for listening
My roommate was fired from a boutique today, for “performance” (read: COVID) after 1.5 YOE. He is convinced that his career will never get back on track/recover (at 23). Is this true?
Got laid off my full time AD job & trying to pick up freelance but I’m very new to this... Any advice for calculating hourly rates?? What’s an average range? (For reference: was making ~$75k in NYC)
Would taking up more work decrease your odds of being laid off in a recession (assuming performance, and all else stay the same)? Assuming your current workload is 100%. This is for industry
Months have gone by since I got laid off. Unemployed. Getting rejected from every job that I apply to. No interviews. I hope that I will have my first interview soon and find a job soon.
If I am looking to pivot to product management side of the industry, are there any programs/certifications/online courses that you would highly recommend? Something that adds value to my resume. Not considering an MBA at this point. Thanks!
What the highest comp you’ve seen people go for deals group at Manager level in HCOL city? Like what would a M5/M6 receive base wise, if that high even exists.
How formal are BCG offices? I am going there to do a case practice interview with PL I have known for years
How much (if at all) does it help if your recommendation is written by an alumni of the MBA program you’re applying to?

Hi I'm looking for 1-2 Data strategy project management consultants -- contractor to perm -- with 2-8 yrs ideally with Big4 experience for a 3-12 month project. Data experience nice to have but tech high level is important. East coast preferred. If you know anyone, please send them my way. Thx
I feel like I never hear about current/recent scotus rulings.... Anything come to mind that has actually impacted you recently?
We recently had several people promoted to manager with less than 3 years consulting / overall work experience - I personally feel this is too little for a Manager role, what are your thoughts?
Just out of curiosity - what sort of events/mishaps, with airlines or hotels, actually trigger you to ask for points as compensation?
Hi everyone, I am interested in Shopify and was wondering if anyone has any experience in terms of the roles and heirarchy. I found a role that is interesting, but I'm unsure if analyst means the same thing as it does in consulting and if it's right for me. Wanted to reach out to someone there as well. Does anyone have any advice on how to proceed? Would love to learn more but also don't want to ask dumb questions. Thanks
Recruiter (in west coast) said on Monday he will provide an update later in the week if Im selected for a role I’ve been interviewing for the past 2 months. The wait is killing me. Called in sick because I was too anxious to do any work and lost all motivation. Should I reach out for an update now or wait til end of the day?
Let's just say that for some reason the supreme Court nomine makes it to a Senate committee meeting. Does anyone not think it's going to be a total circus?
