Gonna join PwC M&A tax. What would be the market like if there’s another financial crisis (hopefully not). Are we the people who will be laid off first? Or we will be pulled to do tax compliance? Thanks.
I'm dealing with life after a layoff and I don't think I'm alone here. 🐠 who have been laid off - can you share your experiences? How long was the job hunt? How did everything work out? Any advice?
TFW you are just killing it in your job client loves you, partner loves you, team is great, location is great ....but your long term SO says "we need to talk when you get home"...

I’m 29, at my first serious job, and am getting fired (not laid off). Feel like an idiot, and don’t know anyone else my age who has been fired. If you’ve been fired, can you tell me about it? I’m LA based in PR & Comms.

Anyone know how to find our employment contracts on myKcurve? I want to see how much they will pay me when I'm fired
Honestly how hard is it to get fired in public accounting. I feel like i struggle sometimes and I can’t complete my tasks in a timely manner. Definitely can see my annoyances on my manager face.
Got laid off a months ago and while I’m freelancing at the moment and making great $, I’m still upset about it. I really don’t think I deserved to be let go and my team would 100 percent agree. Cont
Hi , Need your advice. Im about to complete 1 yr in tcs. I was forcefully allocated to a support project ,now i have cleared digital exam, but when i asked my HR, she is asking me to stay till 1 year in the project for getting release, since my digital cadre depends on bands i have decided to stay till i get band. My concern is that what would be the best course of action if i lose my digital cadre due to a bad band or i will not be able to get release from this project ? Can a 1 yoe switch ?
B4 strategy or general 🐠, would love your advice. Currently, 2 YOE at a well known non B4 firm doing PI/Transformation work. I didn’t get promoted this year because I didn’t have enough experience in my particular group because I was staffed on a different project for awhile. I’m interested in Strategy analyst roles (1 YOE). Will me not being promoted hurt my chances? I’ll probably get promoted at the beginning of 2022. Should I wait until then to apply? Thanks.

Did any KPMG folks get laid off this week?
Gotta love those moments when you spend hours on a last minute client request with an impossible deadline only to get feedback that completely devalues all the work you did
Informed today that, unless we win some new business in the next 90 days, I’ll be laid off. Thoughts on when I should start to make alternative plans? (Con’t)
Working on a project that involves headcount reduction. Wish there was something I could do for these people. Hope they land on their feet 😞

NYC, rising 4th year, V5, M&A. In July, I got the call from the partnership that I should begin to “explore other options.” I always knew when I left, whether on my terms or not, I would exit to finance. It’s been a rough transition. Been pretty discouraged and hit a low point of shame & apathy in August. Just wanted to say that I finally landed my first formal PE and IB interviews this week and am beginning to feel hopeful again! I think it’s all gonna work out.
I'm interviewing with McKinsey for a partner role. Any pointers on the type of questions I can anticipate? Thanks in advance!

Which firms have the best maternity/paternity packages? Do any cover some of the cost of surrogacy? I have a medical condition that would make actually carrying a child dangerous, so wondering if some firms offer help in that area (I’ve heard of some covering IVF costs).
Had my 2nd round interview for an impact investing firm on Friday. They didn’t specify when I’ll hear back about the final round and I forgot to ask 🤦🏽♂️ Is end of week a reasonable expectation?

Had my final round interview with Deloitte on Monday. ( I’m not “running” I need this job). Based on my phone screen with my recruiter I was told she would be keeping up with me with feedback after each interview but I have not heard from her since the initial phone screen (3 weeks ago). I felt like my interviews went very well. When did you finally hear back from the recruiter?

Second year Consultant who came from a benefits broker. I feel like I am very much still learning the ropes of consulting. Was asked to help on a deck for proposal work for something I have no background/knowledge in. Told by the partner that I wouldn’t be creating content just story boarding and managing and organizing in the deck. The manager, familiar with the proposed solution, however seems to be annoyed with me that I didn’t create content. Not sure what to make of this?
Will Big 4 let you stay as SM if you don’t want to make partner but are still hitting SM targets? Once you take the promotion BS and partner-promotion-chasing out of the equation SM is quite fun!
