ITW Illinois Tool Woks is another loser. I'm sharing all active trades. this is another re-opening trade. I opened this at the end of November, and the long is down about 45%. The trade is only down about 15% though as the shorts have been rolled a few times already. Since I have 82 more days in the long, I can roll the shorts at least 7 times and even at $1 each the trade is a small winner. If TIW even goes down another 50% it becomes a decent winner.
Have an in-person interview with Guidehouse for their Health Sector Organizational Strategy Management Consultant - Experienced Associate role. What to expect?
Inspired by another thread- has anyone reported something and ended up taking a severance/ signing an NDA? What was your experience?
I fired my largest client today. 🙀 Sometimes it just isn't a good fit. It has to be a fit for not only my client but also for my agency. We're selective about the work we take on because relationships do matter, and strong relationships = better results. Today was liberating. What a breath of fresh air. We are accepting new clients for everything marketing related including graphic design, website design and development, SEO, digital campaigns, product photography, and video production.
Anyone laid off from Deloitte been getting interviews? (Not for tech roles but more finance) im getting traction from head hunters but not much from firm website applications
My firm sent an email yesterday saying their tracking billable hours DAILY. It’s either they don’t think we’re working from home or about to have some layoffs 🤷🏼♀️
How to spin a layoff? All at level or partially at next level snapshots. 70% of snapshots had performance differentiators. Group had a $9M plan but only hit $1.8M this FY. Want to stay in consulting.

When someone gets fired/laid off but they keep their previous title/agency on LinkedIn, does anyone ever tell them to change it?
I am a recent graduate with Masters in Industrial engg. I graduated with a 3.97 GPA but I am unable to land any jobs. Is there anyone who can help me out with a referral or help me understand what to do in order to at least get connected with people from the same industry? I have been applying and connecting with people but no one replies back after I introduce myself. Any help would be much appreciated!!
People who have had confidence knocks: how did you get it back? I was laid off, 6M out of work, had therapy, now freelancing but I’m slow af. It’s like my brain only works in 2nd gear now.

Hey, what’s working at Grey like these days? Going strong? Layoffs? Killing it creatively? Shark Tank?
Is it noteworthy to have worked in the creative industry for 23 years -18 in advertising, without ever being fired or laid-off? Are there medals or gold watches for that?
How do you approach networking convos if you're not looking to exit immediately? What if they are looking to hire and want to interview you? Any tips for navigating?
Interviewing for a great position in industry (tech). They have equity comp & great benefits. Spoke to their HR, then interviewed with 2 people in the tax department and am getting scheduled for a next round of interviews. The only problem is: the office is about 1 hr from my house (I own). They said repeatedly that they want someone who will be in the office 5 days a week. I would actually move but can’t rent out my place now due to some repairs going on that will take 4-5 months. Thoughts?
Bonvoy Titanium. Did not get a complimentary suite upgrade at a Ritz, but I was offered a suite upgrade for a cost. Meaning they had some available. Can they do that? If they have suites available, don’t they have to upgrade me? I know Ritz plays by slightly different rules, so curious
Has anyone purchased a timeshare or do you vacation solely with your hotel points accrued from work?
First Year Manager Salary - San Francisco - ?
Thoughts on part-time check-the-box MBA? I’’ 32, and am on track for promotion to SM. I can’t justify doing a part-time MBA at a top school and taking on all the debt. An MBA has always been a goal of mine, and some state schools provide an affordable price tag but I’m not sure if it’s worth it at all if it’s not a top 20 school.
Point B fish, can you comment on the culture at the director and practice director levels?
This country needs labor laws that actually protect workers is when time like this comes, average folks like us don't have to worry to sick about layoffs.
So I realized I love every apspect of consulting but the travel ( assuming pre- Covid ) what forms should I look into?
I lead a team of women (ranging from 2-8 years into their careers) and want to advocate for their career growth with management. I’ve made the case for promotions and raises (have been pushing for this for months and keep being told “soon”—but I won’t give up), but I also want to try smaller asks and would love suggestions. Are there any books, one-off classes/trainings, virtual events, memberships, etc. that you’d recommend? Thank you!
How are firms handling the economic downturn in terms of billable hour requirements for associates? Are annual billable requirements being updated or mitigated in any way? Curious to see how other firms are handling this issue, and also afraid of not being able to take any time off until 2021 😳
We always talk about diversity as being important, which it is, but if you don’t have diversity of thought what’s the point. We’re selling products to the masses not our very small advertising bubble.
Any 🐠 looking to hire a consultant with S&O + M&A experience? I have a diverse range of experiences across industries and verticals and would be an invaluable resource to any team (my manager’s words, not mine). Interested primarily in tech or retail. Currently interviewing for two FANG positions in ops, but would love to expand my search! Thanks!
4mo pregnant and having one of those hell project days where all I want to do is slam my computer shut and pour myself a Hendricks and Tonic and slowly melt into a puddle in the sunshine. ... Anyone got any good nonalcoholic coping mechanisms for these days?
