Is the hiring slowdown over? I contacted a few firms to inquire about lateral opportunities in late June/early July and was asked to check back in the fall due to hiring freezes. I wonder if I should reach back out or if it's too soon. The news about Skadden's staff layoffs this morning makes me think it's too soon.
I was laid off and promised my work for my portfolio. I've reached out multiple times but it hasn't come. Any suggestions for handling this?
Laid off 2 months ago - 111% utilization, glorifying appreciation from clients, great mid year reviews, recruiting & learning development internal initiatives. How do I stop feeling worthless?

BBH executive layoffs?
I don't understand the concept of receiving a 4 on Year End (and getting laid off). There is no set percentage to give people 4's and 5's right? How does one mess up that badly?
Anyone hear anything about RSM layoffs? Have heard tumors there was a mass layoff in a CA office.
I quit before the company laid off a few people on my department. Missed out on the severance package. I wish I had waited a few days to resign. Pretty sure I would’ve been one of them. I wouldn’t have cared either way.

BCG people- how many people actually max out the full end year bonus? What's the more common expected end year % for associates? Thanks! I'm trying to weigh some options :)
Everyday I think about quitting & how much I hate my job. When do I say enough is enough and quit? I have a family to support & a ton of student loans so it not like I can be unemployed. Just recently switched careers so it's unlikely I'd be able to find something better soon. I feel so trapped. Sometimes I have thoughts that if I'm seriously hurt I can take time off suddenly & have a real break but I know that's not good. (More in comments.)

I understand we have an honor system with return to office. I have a quite a few coworkers who haven’t taken the vaccine (lots of antivaxxers here) who have made it clear they intend to lie in order to return to office/client site. Is this normal at other firms or is this BAH only?

Started a new job on January 25, 2021. Reviews and promotion packets are due at the end of the month. You can only submit a review and promotion packet if you’ve been with the company since December 31, 2020. I’ve gotten very positive informal feedback from my manager and other colleagues. Should I push to have a review/promotion packet now even tho it’s only been 3 months?
