Absolutely. I’m in a different but this was exactly what I did in your situation when PwC coached me out back in 2009.

And don’t let it get to you. Don’t know if they still do it this way, but my last round of evaluations was a total hatchet job. Never had such a bad taste in my mouth. Just tell me you have too many managers and that I have the least seniority with the firm. No need to document my file with a bunch of half truths and exaggerated performance issues.

Studies show that failing early on in your career tend to set you up for success down the road.

I was let go/fired/whatever after being on a PIP at pwc, and HR encouraged me to file for unemployment. I think the difference is that I wasn't let go because I committed fraud or sexually harassed someone.
Like principal 1 said, don't let it get to you if you end up getting the boot. I ended up switching firms and I'm much happier now.

Also, getting terminated during covid was the best. I wasn't assigned to any clients at the time so I just left without anyone really noticing. I'm sure people wondered where I went, but it's not like I was in the office one day and gone the next.

Doesn't being fired for cause disqualify you for unemployment?

Yea if you couldn’t file for unemployment after being let go on a PIP or performance, when would you ever be able to? Just downsizing?

Starting to see more on this ‘Latinos for Trump’ for fear that Biden/Harris would mean socialism that Venezuelans & Cubans escaped from. I would love to hear from someone what policies laid out by Democratic ticket make them genuinely afraid that the US will become socialist to the level of the aforementioned countries.

Very flat retracement in the ES (S&P) futures overnight. And, all the shorts continue to hold and the market is pinned below the 3040 level. Currently, just prior to Europe start, we are at holding a micro and intermediate shorts with targets near 3000. Really a key level. Can't emphasize how poor this retracement is. . . sign of big time weakness. Literally, this market has to find a major bid here or going down again big in Europe and US sessions. Could be a very ugly day.

Lost my job in the past few months due to mgmt changes and an argument with my parent resulted in them calling out my unemployment (< 1 month unemployed to date) and saying I need to go back to school and study something new. Always knew they never believed in me, but hearing it knowing my actual abilities will always hurt. Perhaps it’s the difference in what environments we grew up in and I need to remind myself of that, but don’t think it won’t ever sting.

The same managers who complain about the status of the audit are the ones sending ambiguous, picky review notes that suck hours into a black hole for something they checked off last year. Makes sense.

How likely is a Big 4 firm to not promote you because you were hired too close to the promotion date? I have an offer from EY to be hired in January at slightly less than what I make now, but I was told I would probably become senior by august since I’m an a2. This seemed like a better deal because even though I make more at pwc, I would become an a3 instead of senior in June. How likely is EY to end up telling me they won’t promote due to being too recent of a hire?
