What is made redundant?

like

If it’s a large firm yes, if not, do some soul searching but don’t beat yourself up. It’s a tough economy.

Are there not special rules around this? Surely if they hired someone for same role then the role was not redundant. Does it sound like they just didn't want to bother with PIP process and giving OP extra few months? Are there legal recourses for such actions?

To the above: redundant is an English term meaning being laid off in American terminology, said firm is a London strategy boutique.

Whew, I almost went the whole Friday without learning anything or being productive... nice save!!!

Does anybody have a view on the growth path / trajectory for a Strategy and Ops Lead at Google? I didn't get a very clear sense in my interviews, esp. because it feels like there is 1 manager for the team and so there is not a lot of scope for organic upward movement. Is it only through lateral moves within the org? You get enough tenure for the next role then find an opp to switch?

Hi everyone. I just received an offer to jump to another consulting firm. As part of the hiring process this new company does a background check (employment and education) which they’ve stated should take about two weeks or less. I’m not worried about the background check since everything I’ve said is true. That said, when should I give notice to my current company? Ideally I’d like to leave as much time in between the end and start for rest and relaxation. What do you all think?
