Has anyone come back from being put on a PiP? My colleague just got one and is freaking out - her manager is overallocated like crazy, the other two media planners were laid off, and she’s the only one left standing. Her boss says she’s making too many mistakes - but they’re so short staffed. Any hope, or should she start looking now?

Hi ladies. I was laid off about two months ago and can barely find a lead to a job. Anyone else having issues/going through something similar? Anyone have any leads? Advice? I need help 🥺
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 🤷🏼♀️
I’m 29, at my first serious job, and am getting fired (not laid off). Feel like an idiot, and don’t know anyone else my age who has been fired. If you’ve been fired, can you tell me about it? I’m LA based in PR & Comms.
Anyone (high performer throughout their career) laid off for non-performance related reasons, have you seen a severe dent on your morale and mental health after the layoff? How are you coping with it?
Laid off bc of lack of work, told I have a few weeks to find a new job BUT have been getting assigned new projects since then. Wtf do I do?
Can you be fired if on medical marijuana if used for medical reasons with prescription if company policy does not specify whether it's not allowed in recreational use only or simply just not allowed?
Does anyone here work for Silicon Valley Bank? They recently acquired Boston Private. I’m a candidate for a job at Boston Private. Wondering if SVB is planning layoffs in the near term at BP? Also, does anyone know the anticipated benefits to be rolled out from SVB as the parent company? Specifically interested in health insurance providers. Thanks in advance for any information!

Somewhat of a recent hire - how hard is it to transfer into a different practice in consulting? Will I get fired for asking?
Fired from big law and still unemployed 8 months out. I’m a mid level transactional associate. Is my legal career over?
Former KPMG fish, when you got severance, was it lump sum or paid out like your normal paycheck?
I recently got laid off and decided to go freelance. First agency that reaches out to me for freelance work... the one that had just let me go 🤷🏼♀️
If a firm (for e.g. PwC with MF Global) loses a pending law suit, are layoffs inevitable?
What is your backup plan incase you and your partner (if you have one) get laid off? Specifically curious about how you would handle housing and income.
Why does PwC's severance package suck so much? I've never been through something like this previously, no I guess I have nothing to compare it to, but everyone who has keeps telling it's insulting. SA
How can we best ensure that we do not collectively adopt a WFH culture across the board?
Wanted to work from home today but my manager told me otherwise. No good reason other than needing me at her side as she reviews work. I guess phones, Instant message, and webex aren't enough!
I feel like my classroom is really small. It’s an interior room, so there are no windows, which doesn’t help. I’m looking for suggestions that make my room feel larger and brighter. Thanks!
Hoping to exit consulting but don’t really want to move (live in lcol) - what are some typical consulting exits or great companies that are planning on being fully remote going forward?
Have any of your firms or law departments planned firm or department-wide fundraisers, pro bono projects, or volunteer events that specifically offer legal assistance to combat racial inequality? We can donate money or time individually, but a small group of us at my firm are brainstorming ideas that would make a bigger impact with some sort of large scale effort. Such a daunting concept. Any ideas, lessons learned or cautions would be much appreciated!
Anyone got an idea about Oracle loop rounds interview ? Also what's your opinion about Oracle in terms of WLB, perks and career growth and opportunities ?
I had requested for extended Sick Leave with Doctor's certificate but there is no response from the project or from the SLL - should I go ahead and charge APA? (as I am out of PL/SL dues) It is not only this instance. For any kind of 'unavailability' email the leadership chooses deliberately to ignore.
My client had to stay on site until 5:30p yday and complained about having to stay late. I proceeded to laugh and cry at the same time
PwC SDC Bangalore HRs are verbally promising permanent work From Home/Anywhere. Do you think it's going to be like that or they will call to office in coming months ? It's just a trick to attract candidates.
What type of exits are possible out of Finance Transformation consulting? I’m a recent grad and am really doubting my decision to start out in consulting. Not at MBB or Big4 but from a top 20 school
Moved to Atlanta about a year ago and haven’t been able to build my social circle yet. With Covid it hasn’t helped as well. Indian born desi, I am F and happily married! Would love to meet some like minded individuals. Looking forward to making some friends :)
Hi folks, Is wfh ending soon in capegemini? And do they provide any wfh allowance and office setup allowance?
Thoughts on direct lending as an exit?
Need counsel: Left advertising to go client side last year. Working at a huge company isn’t for me long-term but the money is great, I have more balance and actually raised my kids this year. I have the opportunity to be a c-suite leader at a very small agency on the rise. Super confused. Money will be less, long-term opportunity will be more. Also thinking about having another kid soonish.
Expecting in few months and have the option to opt out of performance eval this yr.Have really low/negligible utilization, I did everything I could but could not get staffed. How will this affect me?
