What would be in our collective bargaining agreement? Sane working hours, for sure. Harder to lay off or better severance. What else?
Desi fam... got laid off and last day is July 31. Looking for jobs now but any idea on the latest I have to do the H1 transfer by ? ( before it goes to the grace period). Thanks!
Just got benched, been completely billable till now, how long until I should be worried about potential layoffs? (Even though management is “committed” to not letting people go during covid)
PSA: reminder to schedule a day or two off in the upcoming weeks for a 4 day weekend (heck maybe even an entire week). It can do wonders for alleviating stress. Today I’ve gotten my oil changed, taken my dog to the vet, cleaned up my unibrow & have a facial scheduled. The rest of my day will be applying to jobs. I’ve only checked my email once and it feels so ridiculously good not to be tied to a laptop Monday morning. Take that time off ladies!
When laid off, how quickly do firms shutdown your email and dismiss you? A day, a week, more? Think I’m pretty safe, but thinking about saving all my good forms/samples/etc to a flash drive... cont.
Question about PTO - my contract says 25 days but is this inclusive of any office shutdown over Christmas/New years (if there is one?). In Sydney office if that provides some context. Thanks!
Had anyone just done nothing or done the bare minimum at their job instead of quitting? Essentially waiting to be fired or laid off.
Does anybody else get so nauseous and anxious in the mornings that you just can’t get out of bed? I just think I’m going to get fired every single day.
How do you usually ask for PTO? I have the days accrued but I have PTSD from a past job about asking for time off. I’m wanting to take 5 days in June for a family trip and know I need to put in the request to the partners I work for sooner rather than later. I had to take a day this last week and they were great about it (immediate “Yeses”) but somehow, asking for a week feels like a hurdle. (Also, I’m only 7 months in, haven’t met the partners IRL, and we only really communicate via email)

Hi everyone, so one of my kindergarteners lost his mother unexpectedly a few days ago. We are currently on April vacation. How can I support my student? He is only five.
Layoffs at The Martin Agency today. This part of this business sucks (I wasn’t one of them but several of my close friends were).
If you’re not traveling and your entire team is taking PTO, would you be expected to burn your own PTO? New project and nobody is responding to emails so I thought I’d ask the world
Is it typical in workforce implementations for the directos to all go out of office for weeks? Or is this just because it’s summer and vacation season…
My boss is giving me a hard time in spite of doing well.keeps favoring other people which is obvious to the team and warns me about people being laid off. Do I resign? I have an offer.
What is the maximum bench period in EY. Do they layoff, if we are on bench. Currently I am not getting much calls.
What's the longest vacation you've taken and where did you go? Thinking about capitalizing on my unlimited PTO and want some ideas.
Started in BL as a midlevel two weeks back and had a pre planned vacation which I’ve let anyone who I’m working with know about (in addition to letting the firm know before I started). Still feel like I am setting myself back - I have also let everyone know I am available in case needed and offered to help in any way I can but I haven’t offered to work through the vacation. Anything else I can do or am I good?
I keep a few tote bags and plastic grocery bags in a drawer at me desk in case I ever abruptly quit on the spot or get fired. Anyone else?

Canadian moving to the US - sell or rent my properties? Exploring the idea of moving to Cali for an associate job while owing 2 properties in Canada (a rental and main residence).

I have been going to therapy for a while now and it made me realize for the first time that I didn’t know how to choose emotionally available friends. My therapist has helped me understand that my upbringing - emotionally unavailable parents made me to easily tolerate friends that aren’t available and rationalize it in a way that let me build up resentment overtime. In hindsight, I have met incredibly caring ppl that I have pushed away bc it almost felt too different than what I’m used to.
