It’s been about a month since the Twitter fired 80% of its staff and the app is working just fine, and updates are flowing in the App Store.
I have not been on a project for over 3 months. Since I joined, I have been put in training. The training got extended by a month and now it's close to 4 months since I joined and without a project.
What should I do? People say that I'm lucky to get paid without doing any work, but it is stressing me out. I need the experience. The uncertainty is freaking me out, with rumours of layoffs and the certification program and all.
How do I get into a project? How long do I have to wait more?
Just got out of a meeting with a client. Talk about uncomfortable- they'd fired their director that morning and he ran in screaming at the team. They ended up calling security to kick him out!
Hello all, It is quiet here.. how's everyone doing?

How is job security at LTI? I heard employee is fired after 90 days on bench directly.

Please provide outlook for at least next 2-3 years.
My director low-balled me on my offer and wouldn't negotiate. He got fired for doing the same thing to women on our team, now we're getting raises. Police escorted him out and I lol'd real hard
My department has moved to another location .
My job has found another role for me but it is not a lateral move and I will no longer be in management position and my new manger is my peer I’m still keeping my title and pay for now however I am going to meet with my manager and advise I would like to take the severance package .
I wonder if that is an option since they found me a new position …thoughts anyone ?
Recently started in-house from private practice, a few months in. New company has had 2 rounds of layoffs since I resumed. I’m getting nervous. Should I be looking to jump ship? I feel my role is valuable to the company but the layoffs have been indiscriminate. Great performers, ok performers, new employees, older employees! I have a family to support and can’t afford to be out of a job in the coming months. Any advice or similar past experiences?
Hi all - my partner was laid off in April and still having a difficult time finding work in the DC area. Thanks to your advice earlier in the year, he’s back in school to finish his bachelors in IS Management + taking the NET+ cert exam soon. Will it be hard for him to find a job until he gets his degree or will the cert help with an entry level job to tie him over? For reference he’s had 1 full-time role with a tech company in acct mgt. and (2) IT support internships. Thanks in advance!
Are there any R4R professionals in this particular group? I have a tech sourcing and recruiting background. Would really appreciate any support following the recent layoffs at Meta. 🙏🏾
I just got laid off and I just don’t know what to say “if” I ever get an interview. Any tips would be appreciated. I know when you get laid off, no one wants to hire you.
2nd week on the job. Still not staffed, any advice on who/how (partner, manager etc.) to get myself off the bench? These 'layoff' posts are scaring me!

I moved internally and my previous mgr gave negative feedback. Said deliverables needed to be redone, didn't finish tasks, was argumentative, etc. That was not the case. My current mgr and colleagues gave positive feedback. Current mgr said escalation to previous mgr and HR was an option. Is it worthwhile to escalate though? How much weight does the previous mgr's feedback have? Worried this would impact any layoff decisions either way.

I work in tax and with TCJA and CARES (extra work) and not enough resources (not hiring, people were still quitting, and layoffs). Also with blurred lines of work/home since covid, I’m at my computer from wake up to bed time, usually midnight. I have always had stress, but that has recently escalated to full blown anxiety. Do you guys think things will level out or will the firms try to keep taking advantage of everyone’s increased utilization?

How does SF compare in salary to the consulting firms for functional roles? Higher lower?
What is your electricity kWh rate with Con Ed or other esco providers? I’ve just discovered that my electricity supplier is an esco and not Con Ed, but this isn’t something I opted in to… so I’m curious to see if the rate is higher or lower than others and if I need to make a change. For gas rates too?
It’s difficult to find accurate rates and comparisons, but I’ve seen a lot of warnings about Escos and NY’s “power to choose,” so I’m scared that I may be overpaying.

I am a CFE, but my primary role is accounting advisory. Are there ways that I can still continue to expand my practical knowledge about the forensic accounting profession (getting involved with the ACFE and other orgs, volunteering, etc.) without switching over to a forensic accounting role entirely?
Would love to hear your negotiation wins and fails, and lessons learned. One of my learnings is simply to ask. If you don't ask the answer is definitely no. My example was asking for additional equity. I got back a no, but was offered a signing bonus.

Do you think they will cut pay for these tech companies? Before, they’d raise salaries to keep employees and encourage new hires, but now I’m sure they know about how hard it is to get a new job. Im talking banoit positions like SWE, PM, organizational positions, etc
Idk, just a thought.
