Im a huge booster for Chiat LA, always have been, always will be. (I feel like how theyre valued is a metaphor for how creativity is valued in the industry.) Does anybody have any news, or goss, for how they’re weathering the virus times—layoffs or lack thereof? I feel like they were getting a pretty good head of steam going and then this crap.
Anyone here ex-EY have had issues in getting their severance? It’s taking more than a month or more after the separate date to get the final severance amount. Is there is reason for this much delay? Or is it normal?
Got laid off earlier this year, now in industry. Should I mention the layoff if the alum interviewer asks why I changed jobs?
Hello there, i’m wondering if anyone on this group has experience opening your own agency? I was laid off in April and had been freelancing ever since. I have been luck enough getting a few projects without really seeking people out while slowly interviewing. In the back of my mind I have always wanted my own agency. How do you get more clients and dealing with the sales/pitching process on your own? also as WOC i don’t feel like have the right network to tap into for higher earning projects
Why did you leave your last job? Did you follow your passion, hated the work, got fired, wanted more money, etc?
I'm a first year atty. I make $45K at a small firm of 5. In the last three weeks, my assistant has been fired (caught with pot on break), another paralegal quit, and now another assistant has resigned. I have a caseload of 80, with no help. Boss says they are looking, they made an offer, but if that person accepts, it will be weeks before they are ready. I'm falling apart and crying at my desk and can't sleep. Told owner. "Hang in there." Do I walk now? Or hang in there?
Agency I’m at just laid off a ton of FTEs. Is being a freelancer becoming stable because we don’t count as headcount, and they need us during the ensuing chaos?
If you are fired from your job, can you still put in on your resume? Otherwise I’d imagine people would have some long ass gaps...
A friend of mine from a top tier consulting firm was counseled out. Do you consider it ethical that his career counselor is intentially spreading the information to his colleagues and to other consultants from other companies in the project? What can he do about it? Specially that he considers the potential layoff is purely based on the current situation (chargeability was low) and not on his performance (they said that his contribution to BD during his bench time was low)?
For those of you who got laid off during Covid, how long did it take you to find a new job? Had several leads fall through and feeling pretty down
Hi H1B fishes! For anyone laid off recently and looking for/found a new job, can you please help me understand: 1) Does the 60 day grace period count towards your remaining time on H1B? 2) What's the latest day by which a new company can file a transfer without it being a concern? Should filing be before day 60 or the receipt notice be dated before day 60? 3) Anyone successfully transition to a visitor visa in the interim? TIA!
Major client found sig. errors in report. Manager blamed me for faulty work. Partner offered 1mo PIP or 2 mo severance. Have written proof work was manager’s, partner didn’t care. What would u do?
Ethical or not: Company has given a heads up that I will be laid off in exactly 3 months. If I am employed on that day I will get 4 weeks severance + roughly half of my yearly bonus (cont.)
If I am laid off - does my company have to pay me something extra by law for the time I have worked with them? (Not UK national so not sure how it works here)
Question for anyone who was laid off but found a new job: If you request unemployment between the offer and starting, do you not receive the benefit? Worried about stating I've received an offer and that I'm no longer looking, though my new employer is the one having me wait a few weeks.
Nothing like getting a completely new ask due tonight at 10:30pm after working since 8am...to make you love this job .....
Those of you that have interviewed at Guidehouse via referral... how was the process? How many interviews did you need to do? Thanks!

I have a colleague who always shows up on our morning meetings with wet hair from where it’s clear she just got out of the shower before the call. Our manager took her aside and apparently told her that it didn’t look professional on client video meetings. I wouldn’t have even known or thought about it but someone else in our team was talking about it. It seems like a nonevent but I am curious what everyone else is thinking about experiences and expectations for dress on client video calls?
