I think it depends. I’ve heard of people getting 3 months, and other people getting 1 month.

2 weeks per year here

6months at my level (Sr Manager), irrespective of tenure

McLean, Richmond or Plano only. Maybe bit in NY.

When was the last time big four had layoffs

I was part of the tech layoffs over the past couple of weeks. I have an opportunity to go back in house or back to a law firm. Both are great opportunities and comparable comp. Pro of law firm - stability (less likely to be laid off). Pro of in house - no billable hours. Should I ride out the recession at a law firm until things settle down or take the risk and go back to in house?

Ultimately I think we will be ok, but I know he's hurting / stressed / and could use a supportive partner.

How do you not take a layoff due to RIF (involuntary reduction) personally? I was told it is not personal. All full time positions except 1 were let go. Contractors on the team still exist and so does the team. I can’t help but wonder whether performance was a factor and it makes me really sad even after a few months! Any examples of how laying off full time employees over contractors helps with cost cutting? Thanks!

I just heard a couple of days ago that an employee was fired by HR for booking a first class ticket that was *approved* by their direct management. The employee was required to make a trip for a work function that involved C-levels and others from their department in a team building type of event. The employee spent their own money to make this, and to boot is a single mom.

Is it me or does this seem insanely unfair and out of left field? How does management not get in trouble??
