I’m a Financial Services Strategy Manager in NYC who just got laid off. Any connections to strategic planning roles in the NYC area would be very much appreciated. This was a surprise to me as my career counselor said I was in track. Only have two months of severance so would like to find something by end of year.

There are many strategy roles within banks who recruit for this kind of background. Also try large Insurance firms.

Sorry op. Get an attorney and negotiate more severance to protect yourself. You don’t have to sue, they can just negotiate in your behalf and get more $$.

SC1, have you ever seen this approach actually work with a large consulting firm like Accenture?

To my Deloitte colleagues: I just returned from maternity leave, and while I’m very grateful I was able to stay home with baby for 6 months I’m really anxious about returning and my utilization (50% now). Our RM is really slow and says we have a lot of new projects but hasn’t assigned me to one. I am doing trainings but not billing, and I don’t believe I’ll be staffed next week or the next either. Have reached out to a partner for extra work but haven’t heard back. Afraid I’ll get fired.

Really trying to figure out my plan but feel so negative towards everything job-related. any suggestions where to begin? I need to find something I semi-enjoy since It’s unlikely I’ll marry a rich husband or win the lottery before my savings runs out.

Looking for advice. Submitted Reasonable Accommodations to HR three months ago, and instead of accepting/negotiating, my company fired me. Aren’t they required to engage in an interactive process with me?

I got laid off because of covid and need to discuss the severance package with my ceo tomorrow. Company offers 6 months, I want more as it probably will take much longer to find a new job.
Any tips for a conversation like this? I’m normally a strong person related to my work but feel very uncomfortable and uncertain right now. He is a good talker and I’m afraid he will walk all over me.

There is lots of companies really taking a hit in the tech space. Is this something that people are nervous about? Many seem to still be having a hiring push but with the button falling (IMO this is still just start we have a long way to go to bottom out) will that halt and layoffs ensue? And if so, which depts do you think will get hit the hardest?

Anyone have insight to what the plan is at UpStart for example?

I'm frustrated. Everywhere I've worked I've gotten great reviews and even leadership awards. At my last company my boss was promoted to CAO. She hired a director but made her VP of HR at hire due to someone leaving. VP ran 6 HR directors out of the co (we all left without jobs lined up). After I left my team quit & the CAO was fired. Now they promoted this VP to a Sr VP. I gave so much, got nothing, yet she fell into SVP. I have a new Director level job. How do I break into the VP level?
