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)
Don’t know why, but I am not feeling afraid of getting laid off. And also I don’t feel like pushing to get another job in case that happens. I am fed up with this visa nonsense, the corporate slavery they have in name of H1B. And also this whole world in turmoil due to covid has left me thinking what better i could do to add value to the society. Adding to the agony of American dream is the civil unrest in US, trump again for 4 years, more guns, absurdity of USCIS etc.
Ethical Poll: Would you sign a petition to take a 50% pay cut for 4 months to ensure no COVID related layoffs happen at your firm? Answer in the comments below.
Currently in a full time role at an RPO but have a potential offer in house on a 6-9 month contract with strong possibility of conversion at Hubspot. Pay is $15k higher than I make now. Would it be a bad decision to take the contract / contract to hire? I don’t doubt my ability to get converted, but the entire market is seeing huge layoffs so it makes me a little nervous. Thoughts?
Is it risky to apply to a key competitor? Assuming there isn’t a no compete clause or anything like that, I’m just concerned I could get fired if my current team found out. Is it a fire able offense?
I ain’t going in. The managing partner of the firm can call me and order me in or else I’m fired. Yeah lol okayyyyy buddy you’ve got severe understaffing across all corporate groups and I’m one of the last midlevels you have with stellar reviews. Try again honey.

Does anyone else feel constantly anxious that they're about to be fired? I'm a mid level associate. I've been at my firm 6 months, my work has been good, but hours are lacking due to covid. Just can't shake this fear and it's making it hard to focus on work, so it's a vicious cycle

I recently got my H1B approved. The effective start date is Oct 1. What happens to my visa status if I get laid off before Oct 1? My status before H1B approval was Stem OPT.
I was fired from my job about two months ago (imo it came down to the lack of work) and have had a hard time opening up to my friends and family about it. Anyone experience a similar situation or have any advice?

Recently laid off despite consistent excellent feedback during first year post-MBA. Startup background & looking to get back to that world—would very much appreciate referrals or suggestions via DM.
