Would you get fired if you edit your department partners’ picture and send it to your colleague?
Just got told by managers that my performance hasn't met their expectations. High performer last year. Am I getting fired?
Any tips on negotiating severance package? What’s typical package for a NY lay off? How do we maximize the money we receive? I’ve also read things on the internet that say “don’t sign it on the spot.”
Is Deloitte the only top firm to have layoffs? I heard this from my manager today and find it hard to believe
There is truly nothing like going through the shock of layoffs and then seeing your closest coworkers still here at the end of the day. Hold you peeps close today folks ❤️ 😔
Analysts who left in their 1st year either (voluntarily or laid off) where did you end up and how long did it take you? Consulting isn't for me and I'm obviously only eligible for entry level roles
Survived the layoffs on friday-but still shook up from seeing a bunch of my friends get walked out all around me. When a layoff happens should I be updating my resume/looking to get off the ship?
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)
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.
If you get fired from Deloitte (or similar), what would they say in a background check? Would they say “would not rehire” or something like that? Anyone have any issues with this?
Used to work as an AE at Yelp. Got laid off. What do you think the areas of opportunity are right now in the world of sales? Still a good time to be in tech?
It is very difficult to do my job and think creatively when I’m living each day in constant fear of being laid off. I’m grateful to have a job, but damn, sometimes I feel like I’m coming apart at the seams. Happy Saturday, everyone.
Has anyone else found HR timelines to be a crawl during all of this year? Top 5 bank or smaller bank, it’s totally glacial pace, it doesn’t matter. I try to normally be engaged and quick with stuff client side or internal stuff but it truly blows my mind how slow HR is on things. Like if I was to be this slow client side, I’d be fired. Does anyone have similar experiences over the past year?
I got laid off and 3 weeks later a SC from HR sends me an email about an opening at the firm. Should I apply???
Am I ever going to get past the self doubt mode? I feel like every time I speak or do anything, I just sit and think about whether I should have said or done it. I get worried I am wrong or overstepped. I am constantly worried I will get fired for being incompetent. Gah, I wish I could just trust in myself.
The more pedestrian your intellect, the better fit you are at D Heard of a colleague with an FRM charter being laid off today. Overall excellent person. And you won't believe who they promote year after year.. the character, curiosity and quality of the lifers Don't join this firm if you for a love of learning and to be inspired. Join if you are a middling who wants a good brand to hack ahead in life and rise above your station
I’m at 71k now at 1 YOE. Is there any good reason to take a pay cut for a new job? (Assuming I don’t get laid off or fired and have to scramble for cash)
Confessing that after all my pro- remote attitudes, I actually do feel more disconnected, and somehow, not as well liked/embraced working remotely.
What are some cons of working at MBB? Bad work life balance is probably the biggest but ‘what else’?
Should animals (non-human) be allowed to own guns? Rhesus monkeys, for example. Why or why not? They could protect themselves from being forced into medical experiments.
Interview pitfalls: freelance vs full-time? I'm usually a pretty good interview but a freelance contract is a bit of a different ballgame. Any lessons learned worth sharing?
How does this “burner” email work? at what point do people disclose their real name, for instance, if they are looking for a referral bonus?
One of the best parts of wfh for me is just getting more sleep in the morning. I’m really really really not a morning person. Get to wake up at least a full hour later most days and am far less rushed/have less to do before I start up work. Getting anxiety thinking about return to office and 630am alarms :(
I’ve been at a startup for a month now. I’m pretty certain my co-manager has been purposely withholding information from me when I ask for clarity on a process or general company information. Other than that, I like my role and company so far. What’s the best way to approach a situation like this? Pretty certain it’s because of insecurity and wanting to look better but I really am not a fan of these antics and it makes me question how long I want to stay here.
What kind of hours are you putting in on your current project? What's the industry? (E.g. Tech, in at 7:30AM, leave at 7PM, back online at 10PM)
All right FB let's share the love - what and how does one get perks for this f-up Delta has? I've seen miles/coupons/hotel arrangements so far.
Hello Friends, I have 2 questions please help to clarify. I am joining in CTS on September last week so when i will be considered for appraisal ? And also for variable compensation I will get in this March right? For this we don't need to wait for a year I guess.
Fellow 🐠, how much of a salary cut would you be willing to take to move from your current role to an industry job that feels more personally fulfilling?
About to leave my firm and consulting for an industry, totally remote role. Just surprised at how sad I am feeling at this point. Any of you other mama’s make a similar move?
