We have had some troubles too OP. We had "involuntary" turnover in our FS group and throughout Advisory as a whole. Our townhall they avoided the layoff question and hiring freeze question with some PC BS. I hope the good people are kept on at all the firms. Good luck to our comrades.

OP does not represent us. We know we are next and that we are all in it together. Have people never heard of the "where there's smoke there is fire" concept? People aren't just making up that they were let go.

I have not heard of any layoffs here and I know we are above plan and PY by a significant amount (in MC). My service line within S&O is actually understaffed. Come on over! I know everyone is always hating on the Phil Mickelson of consulting, but we sound fairly stable compared to the other big4

We're definitely feeling for y'all. I completely understand people venting their frustration and anxiety on fishbowl.

Yeah P and D are both definitely going through a shit ton of layoffs. Friends from both companies have been through it, even some that started this cycle.

Wow. I wasn't convinced it was true. Posts were always one firm and always presented in a less than tactful manner. Smelled like a troll to me. Where's the fire extinguisher?😳

Layoffs are happening at EY as well. We're expecting a bunch more in June. For us it's mostly the underperformers being cut and since we have a large bench right now in FSO
