Is pwc consulting the only area with layoffs? I asked my accountant buddies and none of them knew what I was talking about.

Pwc4 - The work is less exciting. Clients tend to be less than intelligent and inefficient at best. You have to deal with stupidity and ambiguity on a regular basis. Certifications and security clearances have more importance. The current dialogue from my partner is "you get paid leas but have more job security". Which is bullshit. You get paid less and the work life balance is typically better.

Accounting firms tend to downsize investment in their consulting/advisory divisions during periods of low economic growth. Investing in their accounting activity is a much safer bet

Yeah. Advisory was a little bloated. They hired a lot last year without having work ready for people. A lot of people spent months on the beach waiting for work that never materialized.

P4 Public Sector is very stable and pretty much no travel. You get on a project and it lasts for 6 months or a year...a lot more job security, but a lot more red tape in getting work. Dealing with the slow government here. I enjoy it. Still fast paced in that you work your ass off, but the Govt is not "quick" to make decisions...id recommend if you want more stability in consulting...

Thank you p3/p6. And this is all based in DC right ?

Yup

I am targeting for about CAD 90-110k annually and I am located in Toronto, Canada. Do you feel things will pace up this month and my expectations are reasonable?

Hey team! So I was laid off from my SDR position about a week ago. A couple months back, I had an offer for a BDR position that I ended up turning down but I really liked and connected with the manager. Is it worth it to reach out? I applied to other positions in the same company. What about reaching out to previous co workers at a different company? Not sure how to navigate this… please help. Also I’m sorry if this is the wrong bowl to post in.
