Still No Layoffs. This All Hands was scheduled a while ago. Invite just went out. Just talking about how we finished the year. Timing of year end reviews, promotions, what else we are doing and will be doing to combat racism, etc. Sorry to disappoint but nothing sinister in the All Hands.

They have official meetings scheduled? Uh oh. Commenting here to follow.

One can imagine that's what our all hands is for

You know we have All-Hands webcasts a lot right? Fiscal year just ended, we are in a pandemic, offices are still trying to reopen, economy is still trying to start, we’ve had lots of talks about racism and discrimination, etc. Why is everyone’s first reaction always “layoffs are coming!!!”

As someone from Deloitte, FYE all hands webcast is bad news bears for this. I am going to be pleasantly surprised if there aren’t any. Genuinely don’t mean this as a scare tactic, but you should 100% be prepared

Whoa

I was laid off in April when there was just email and phones. Cut to five months later and I’m working again. Yay. But suddenly it’s all Zoom, Slack, Teams, Slides, Sheets. Email is dead. And phones are only for Zoom, Slack, Teams, Slides and Sheets. It feels like I woke up from a coma in a shitty version of the future and everyone else is fine with it. How did anyone adjust to this?

I feel like I’m not learning anything at my internship. It’s easy work and good pay though. Should I try to take on another project or multiple to try to gain more experience?

Is this worth it when I go to school full-time as well while trying to balance a part time job? (The internship at D is expected to be part time but they might make me work more).

Hi all, I wondering what I should do i was planning on taking an advance Accounting course in January 2021. Part of my company benefits is tuition reimbursement. I got an email back from my manager that was clearly drafted by the Director. The email basically stated that they were concerned that I was over working myself and the course would not be reimbursed at this time maybe in April that would be after they reevaluate the situation. My question here is should I be concerned I’m a target.
