That time when all your kids are sick, you are in between homes and you get laid off. Should have gone down another road when that black cat crossed my path last month.
For those who have been laid off - have any of you thought or actively tried to pivot into a new career/field?
Are Deloitte layoffs over after tomorrow? S&O just let go 10-15% of the work force. More to come?
Would you rather get promoted or laid off at your current firm (and collect a sweet severance package)? Why/why not?
Fired from big law and still unemployed 8 months out. I’m a mid level transactional associate. Is my legal career over?
Has Anyone been laid off but got another job by telling prospective employer another story because your ex employers policy will not to reveal reason for separation?
Laid off bc of lack of work, told I have a few weeks to find a new job BUT have been getting assigned new projects since then. Wtf do I do?
Deloitte had an impact on me and several colleagues that they laid off #impactday #impactwhatmatters
So I love my fiance with all my heart. He's the most patient, caring, loving man. Our wedding is planned for some time end of next year. But he just got recently laid off and doubts started to creep in again. He has always worked, but always in a dead end kind of job. And this job was his first "professional" job and now that's out the window. While I trust in his potential, he's not dumb or anything. He's a bit slow (not very aggressive, quiet). I just keep climbing up the ladder so the gap is
I heard WK laid off 50 people this week ? Surely this can't be true . They're indepdent and can think long term
I got fired recently for vague performance issue reasons (which were never detailed to me) and it has completely gutted my confidence. Has this happened to anyone and have they come back from it?
Has anyone at the executive level negotiated termination provision or a guaranteed severance? (Ie 4-6 months plus placement) Independent or holding co?
Everyone is talking about good hikes, bonuses etc. Does anyone feel that there will layoffs this year for not meeting performance. Last year, it did happen and leadership tried to cover it saying, it happens every year based on performance but everyone knows the truth that they put more people in PIP and then forced exit than the other years. What's your take this year.
Anyone else already get a pay cut (while still working the same amount of hours) or laid off?
Has anyone jumped from Big 4 Advisory to Tier 1 Consulting firms (e.g. MBB). Was the jump at the same, higher or lower level?
I've gotten golden handcuffed. I'm making $800k/yr at a big company but I feel completely apathetic. The people are nice and I'm not really unhappy. Just bored out of my mind. I got an offer from a much smaller company where I'd be making some really interesting developments but it would cut my salary in half. What would you do?
What's the process of experienced hiring after giving technical interview, registered on ibegin too? I have interview (15+ years Exp) on 30-sep and on ibegin, this status says "Evaluation in Progress". What are next steps and how much time it usually takes? Also my all documents are uploaded, but they are in "Pending Verification", usually when do they verify them?
I'm fairly certain I'll be having a face to face interview soon with an agency across the country. Maybe 2. I need help with "excuses" of why I can't go in to work while I'm interviewing cross country
Is it weird that minutes after getting an offer from a Big 4, the office managing partner is inviting you out for coffee and top golf? I hadn’t even read the offer letter yet 🤣 Are audit seniors needed this badly?
What is a typical entry level financial analyst Interview like at a big company? What does the case study entail? Is it equation based? What excel skills should I brush up on?
