Went to HR to complain about horrible manager. Will I get fired or let go? I was just speaking up for myself.
I got laid off today. My client is an automotive account and they slashed more than 50% of their budget due to the state of the world.
For those who have been laid off due to this pandemic....
Here is how KPMG handled an announcement today re: a RIF:
We’ll be laying off people. We can’t tell you when. can’t tell you how many people. We can’t give you any details. But we WILL send you an email after this call with FAQs and the severance policy.
...no email was sent. So, now 1,000 employees are going to bed tonight confused and irritated AF.
Hey friends. Anyone work for Assembly Global recently? Was I fooled by great interviews? I had 2 30 min interviews (Friday & today) & got an email from HR that they’re putting an offer letter together. Feels fast, but they are onboarding a new client so staffing up. I’ve been actively interviewing bc my current (super small, independent) agency is facing some financial hurdles. I see a layoff coming. Idk what to do…
Is anyone worried about layoffs?
Tired of this constant grind and constant layoff situation in NYC. Thinking of making the move to LA. Any thoughts? Yay or nay?

Is it normal to be given a severance package and encouraged to file for unemployment when being fired for "performance issues"?
Coworker got fired because they stole my clients! We have a policy stating that the realtor who initiated the contact should be the one closing the deal to give them a fair chance. I feel bad but they should have read the policy...
Why are so many agencies struggling right now and doing layoffs? Is this normal or are more brands going in house or what?
I have a 25K loan from my MBA. I paid off 100k whole, after graduation. 3 years ago, I moved my loan from federal to private ( SOFI) account. I recently lost my job. I have applied for unemployment, as the severance that I received will only cover for 2 months. Together my husband and I used to make less than 250k after tax. Now, with a loss of pay , we are going to make less. Do you think I will be eligible for Loan forgiveness?
What kind of tax groups are hit with the layoff at Deloitte? I don't understand how Deloitte can fire their tax employees at this time of the year when 7/15 is just around the corner...
Tips for just getting started, with the day especially, or even just a bad task later on after a few productive hours? I can have a stack of billables to do, but if it isn’t truly urgent, it’s just like a giant mental wall preventing me from getting things done. Medicine doesn’t help. It’s like I need the fear of god in me to get anything done and the moment I’m not scared of getting fired, I just... can’t. Things are OK at 2 am for some reason though.
Did EY announce anything about layoffs today?
Anyone here familiar with the hiring process of KPMG consulting in Van? Had a partner interview on Nov 21, thought the feedback was positive but haven't heard back yet (no rejection/offer). Is it something normal or the interview just didn't go as well as I thought?
It's an experienced hire for an SC role. I saw the posting is still open atm, and my guess is that the recruiting team is comparing candidates since competition is higher due to recent layoffs.
Thanks in advance!
I have joined Capgemini Engineering. coimbatore . I came to know that many employee was fired from job who was in probation period stating that he is non conformance for the project. First thing is in my experience I never seen a company firing an employee in just 3 months after joining stating NC. he was given a totally new project from his skill set, also he was not given a second chance to access his skills. Is this even legal for company to fire without any notice, is it safe to be here?.

Does anyone else find that their students have a hard time understanding old classics? I tried reading "The Mouse and Motorcycle" and my kids found it boring and difficult.
Need some advice/guidance. I’m currently with a F500 company, on a great team with decent benefits, A+ WLB, but my entire 8 yrs of recruiting has been retail/hourly roles, and recently have been wanting to expand my arsenal & get into tech/engineering. I currently make a comp of about 90k. Amazon recruiter reached out & they accepted my 150k comp expect & I’m now at the “on-site” interview portion. Recruiting is for engineering or IT roles. Is the Amazon WLB really that bad? It’s a big increase.
I got variable pay of 1 lack, two times after April's appraisal (so total 2 lack). I didn't had variable component mentioned in offer letter, but it was showing up in hr portal. Now payroll people are calling me and asking me to return the 1 lack saying it was done by mistake. What should I do?

One of my employees who is a good friend of mine informed me that there's been talk of them striking over some mistreatment. He didn't mention who the mistreatment came from, I assume it was me since I'm the regional manager. How do I stop this in its tracks before it gets too convoluted?
