After 5 years of good ratings I was terminated from a regional CPA firm, but my last day is next month. Am I obligated to tell a prospective employer I was fired while I am technically still employed?
If you get fired from Deloitte (or similar), what would they say in a background check? Would they say “would not rehire” or something like that? Anyone have any issues with this?
Folks, any advice on applying for jobs at a previous client? As a firm we have great relationships with the senior client leadership and I am afraid that the GEP and my RL will eventually find out when I submit my job application. On the other hand, if I tell my RL prior to applying, I will probably end up towards the top of “people to be laid off” list.
Got laid-off in November and started at a boutique firm two month ago and I'm just so bored. Work is boring and there isn't much structure for anything. Missing D today.
If the big4 has an up or out model, do a lot of senior managers get laid off? Not everyone can be a partner/principle. How long can someone be a partner/principle for?
Do I have less chance of being laid off as a senior or am I just as expendable as a first or second year

Does staying at a job too long make you less marketable? A CFO who worked at a company for over a decade and was fired because of cut backs was hired for temp work. An accounting manager of 6 years was hired for tech support. How does this happen?

Hi Everyone! I’ve been thinking about potentially switching from HR to another field of work. I was curious to know if anyone on here started their career in Hr and ended up in a different field? Also, what field did you end up in and why did you make the change? Thanks guys!

Anyone in here from AlixPartners How would you compare the work/comp/staff to Big4? Also is VP the equivalent to manager elsewhere?
Does anyone else feel like their burn-out cycle is shorter? It used to take me about 2 years of grind before I hit a burn-out phase where I needed to do some serious recuperating. It feels like I'm at 3 months now, or even less. I've already spoken to my wife about building quarterly mini-vacations into my schedule just to keep my energy up. And by burn-out, I mean you're at the point that every single ball you are juggling can drop and you get fired and almost see that as a blessing.
Been hell of a year so far. Sort of bittersweet. Lost my job a few months back. Laid off the first time. But my net worth is all time high. And not only that, this has been the fastest increase. 401k up 40% this year. Personal brokerage up 40%. And just refinanced at 2.5. Not sure whether to be sad or happy. Guess will go with happy for now.

Are federal practitioners limited to government in terms of exit ops? Or do non consulting companies not care as much about commercial vs federal experience
Monday and not even noon and I am so exhausted I just want to lie down. Toddler woke me up at two am and I basically couldn’t fall back asleep after that because I was so stressed about the week. MDP came back from a week of vacation and had a bunch of things he didn’t like and chewed me out about this morning. I just feel super over it all. Hard to imagine continuing in this business. Those who have left for corporate work do you find it less stressful, more sustainable?
I'm currently a second year analyst heading for promotion at a T2 firm. I'm also interviewing with MBB in the coming weeks. My goal is to apply for MBA programs in a year or two from now. What would be the best work experience for my applications? Would it make more sense to stick with my firm and start taking on more responsibility as a consultant / associate? Or would it make more sense to start from square 1 at a better brand (MBB)
