I read this so quick and thought it said "want to know when to participate" at first and was about to comment "OMG SAME" 😂


I read the same thing KMPG 1 lol


Lol that too tho




Probably all offices and service lines. I'm just guessing at Friday. If not Friday, it will be very soon. Guessing they don't want to pay all that dead weight for the July 4th weekend.


^ 😂😂

During the CRT or after busy season mostly

@EY2 what office and service line?

Hey all, ~7 years I've been working with fixed income analytics (duration, spread, etc) and perf attribution for institutional inv mgmt firm with close to $400B aum. I'm being laid off in a couple months. Should I say I'm being laid off in interviews? Or is that a negative? I get severance if I stay the whole time so ideally I can time it. Have finance degree, CFA charter. Most of work has been IG, but also some HY, EM and equity. Want to go into equity research/PM- worried I'm pigeonholed


I’m at an agency that just went through several rounds of layoffs. It often seems like staff have no recourse when the layoffs hit. How could a staff union assist in that situation?

Since Florida is an at-will state, can an individual be fired for a lack of productivity in a physically demanding work environment (if that lack of productivity is due to a heart condition)?


OK gonna maybe open a can of worms here but I have to ask: it seems the sudden inflation we're seeing has taken the ins. ind. by surprise. The cost/expense projections done X yrs. ago for this and poss'y subsequent yrs. have been thrown off. Costs to repair/replace cars have shot up unexpectedly. Same for houses. Med costs have all gone up. Ins. cos. have relatively thin profit margins to begin with. There's talk of cost-cutting measures-- incl. layoffs. How realistic are these concerns?


Have you ever negotiated a severance? Company ended my employment and wants me to sign a mutual non-disparagement, waive suing them, etc. but they didn't offer me any money. They are fully in the wrong, it's a disability related issue. My options are 1. Sign 2. Refuse to sign 3. Try to negotiate. 4. Sue them (contingent on attorney taking the case). I'd prefer to negotiate, but not sure that's realistic.

Hi Everyone, I’m a UI/UX designer recently laid off from an agency in Detroit. I have 10+ years experience with a background in front-end development. If anyone here is looking for candidates, PM me.

Has anyone been offered severance verbally only to have it revoked after you accepted? If so, how did you handle it?


I have a contingent offer after being laid off in spring due to COVID. Since then the job market has obviously been tough, so a few buddies and I started a start up that has done very well, but we haven’t filed for LLC status yet (keeps pushing back). We have ~10 guys working on various areas. I just received an offer back in my usual industry, and have been truthful in my experiences. Will they ding me in a background check since there’s no 1099 to prove formal employment? FYI I have references

Im doing good work at Deloitte, have excellent and supportive network and am leading or part of innovative engagements. I also happen to like the firm. However I am starting to get a lot of offers from industry, average TC of these offers are at 1.5x to 2x of my current pay. Could use the money, but also am afraid of being laid off during recession and or not going for partnership at Deloitte. Should I start planning my exit?


Hey everyone! Curious, does anyone have experience negotiating severance upfront with their compensation package? 👀 I work in media & entertainment, so with all these m&a going on, I'd rather have this conversation while it's still the honeymoon phase. Thanks!

In a time of uncertainty, stress, anxiety, and sadness, I want to reflect on things that make you happy. Tell me something you enjoy about your school. This could be a people, a space, an ideal, something that makes you happy when you think about your school and your job. Here’s mine: All summer a small group of teachers and administrations have been repainting the whole building and adding murals to spruce up the school. When we reopen we want the space to feel exciting and welcoming.
