Anyone else have a lingering fear that they could be fired at any moment? I’ve received great performance reviews and my partner says I’m doing very well, but I don’t vibe with my colleagues as well as it seems others do.
My firm sent an email yesterday saying their tracking billable hours DAILY. It’s either they don’t think we’re working from home or about to have some layoffs 🤷🏼♀️
If company offers unlimited PTO, what else beside salary can you negotiate on an offer? Benefit package is standard (health insurance) and they do not offer 401k matching yet.
Question #1 with a few spin offs: are you accepting new patients? Can the sessions be virtual (assuming we are in different states)? What insurance you take and can I pay with HSA?
I think im probably going to get fired in the next 6 months. Should I just start searching now.
Does anyone here have any guidance or experience in moving from big pharma to VC-backed biotech/ med-tech/ next gen healthcare companies on the west coast? TIA Former consultant with 3+ YOE at 2 big pharma after my consulting stint. Now I am looking for something more exciting, with more ownership, more nimble and of course the equity upside. (Ps If you don’t have anything valuable to add, it is better to hold off on your opinion) Comp does not matter, due to my partner’s high income.

Do all big 4 and larger mid size firms have PIP? How long do they usually last, and does anyone get fired for purely performance reasons without being put on a formal PIP?
Has anyone come back from being put on a PiP? My colleague just got one and is freaking out - her manager is overallocated like crazy, the other two media planners were laid off, and she’s the only one left standing. Her boss says she’s making too many mistakes - but they’re so short staffed. Any hope, or should she start looking now?
Does staying at a job too long make you less marketable? A CFO who worked at a company for over a decade and was fired because of cut backs was hired for temp work. An accounting manager of 6 years was hired for tech support. How does this happen?

First person in my family to have a corporate job so I don’t have anyone to ask these questions. I’m wondering how much I should put into my Roth 401K? I currently have it set for 18% of my monthly paycheck. Is this enough? I’m 23 years old, first year on the job. Any advice is appreciated! Thank you
Going up for promotion next year. Will it impact me to be on maternity leave for the last 2 months of the performance period or will the rest of the year speak for itself? To wait, or not to wait?!?
Currently work at AWS in Business Intelligence and am looking to transfer into Product Management. Looking at MBB eventually. In my experience, most people from MBB have FAANG as their exit op. Why?
To everyone interviewing, to hopefully calm some nerves: The process is really long. Not hearing back from the recruiter for a few days, or even weeks, is completely normal. There can be multiple weeks between rounds and then multiple weeks before you get feedback. Don’t think too much into it. There is no indication of positive or negative by no response. On average it takes 3+ months, and usually 2+ application attempts, to get hired. Good luck! 🍀
Are others seeing nepotism in candidates during recruiting that is counteracting diversity and inclusion efforts? How are you keeping the motivation to continue fighting for equality? Feeling very discouraged right now.

Hi Fishes, What will be my in-hand Salary
Is 215-225k possible for an L5 role at Amazon Seattle? They are offering a lateral move from FB but only want to jump if +20% in comp raise is possible. Additionally, anyone familiar with successful negotiations at Amazon? Recruiter likes to play hardball but the hiring manager let me know she’s pushing extremely hard to get me hired.
hey Deloitte fish, can anyone provide some recent insight into your commercial cloud practice? More so on the strategy side rather than hands-on implementation. Insight into: Culture and the cloud practice leadership? Expected comp for a SC with 5-6 YOE?
It’s so disappointing that people still don’t pay equal attention or importance to mental and emotional health.
