How do you survive in a company after layoffs? Feel thankful to have a job, but the people left are miserable and overworked and sad.

Anyone who joined PwC AC Bangalore recently and is/was on bench for 2-3 months?
I'm worried about getting "FIRED". Does PwC fire in such cases?
Connected with Deployer, Coach and RL many times they say I should wait and need not worry whenever requirement will come they will inform me. I have been on bench for 2+ months now.
Round of layoffs happening at 360i today. Don’t worry guys, take it as a blessing in disguise - you all deserve better than that place. ❤️
Looking for some insight. I recently got laid off from a growing start up. I loved the culture, the product, & they actually promote their people. I’ve been an BDR for a year at my previous company & then only a month at this one. My goal is to become an AE but now I’m wondering if that’s what I want. Ive been in tech in the Bay Area for 2+ years with previous experience in data management. Thinking of rebranding & getting into partner marketing or anything to get me to 6 figures. Thoughts?
Was laid off at Deloitte Digital and looking to take this opportunity to transition into a strat/product role. I have 2 YOE and did a lot of work with Salesforce strategy / implementation.
Are any companies hiring associate-level positions? Would love to network and have a coffee chat!
What is the EY severance package ?
If you’re worried about getting fired or laid off, or between jobs and worried, or looking for work, just know this: you will be okay. Try to relax and enjoy this beautiful summer weekend. (Continued)
6 months pregnant and just laid off. And 40% of my severance was just taken in taxes .. I just spoke with paid family leave and I no longer qualify even though I had been paying into the program (thanks NY).. I already applied for unemployment but doctors are telling me I’ve got 10-14 weeks left in this pregnancy.. so stressed having twins and being unemployed, no maternity leave, no paychecks coming in, and I’ve been applying but not a single interview.. just ugh. 😭
What firms are hiring? I most recently was an Associate who got laid off due to pandemic a few months back. Really eager to get back into things but unfortunately have run into bad luck (firms laying off, hiring freezes) during my job search.
Lost Cdn clients, work slowed. ECD set up a meeting next wk to discuss working on clients from a US office. Aside from arranging for an emotional support clown, any advice on preparing for layoff?

What are you doing for financial security long term?
A lot of post about working in tech seem to focus on two things: making six figures and (unlimited) PTO policies. These things are great but with the recent wave layoffs and uncertainties about what retirement is going to look like moving forward what is something that you’re doing with that tech paycheck now that may not have an immediate benefit but is focused on planning for the future?

Why have unions become so powerless in recent years? A decade ago, the collective bargaining units would get wage increases that matched or exceeded inflationary growth. Now we are lucky to see any positive integer offered.
Realistically, if they are merely securing my job for $100/month they are not providing value! I can protect my own job, AND pay for a decent retirement with that money saved.
How do you guys keep your house clean with toddlers and have time to work full time, work out, cook, play with toddlers, take them to activities, etc? I've never been a super tidy person but I really do enjoy a clean home and try but I have the hardest time keeping up. I did at one time have a housekeeper which helped but we can't afford it at the moment. Just doesn't feel like there's enough hours in the day to get it all done.

Headhunter has reached out to me with 2 opportunities, one with a megafund and another for a small fund I've never heard of and wouldn't be interested in joining. The headhunter is pushing me to consider the small fund. Can be clear with the headhunter that don't want to proceed with the small fund, or does that risk the headhunter not connecting me with the megafund?

My company laptop is valued at $5
If you're talking about job abandonment and don't respond to HR, about a month. You'll burn any accrued PTO during that time and will likely be sued for the value of your company provided laptop if you don't return it.
Good luck avoiding the police when they respond to the missing person report
Ive heard that its only after 1 yr that they'll start asking why you haven't been able to find a project. As long as your counselor isn't too involved, sure, you can be on the bench over a full year with few issues
Speaking from experience...had a consultant go AWOL last year that was on the team I was managing.
What if you’re on the bench 🤔
