Seeing how often others are laid off here is cathartic (Sorry 😞). The first time I got laid off I took it very hard and felt like I was fired for being the single worst person in the building.
Has anyone been fired for sexual harrasment? How did you move forward? Happened to me last year, and am still dealing with how to move on and explain myself in this climate.
silly question: now we're heading into a recession, anyone has any ideas which functions would get laid off first: planning, analytics, dig or data operations?
How do you progress in your career if you know you are not smart and sometimes even feel like dumb?
I feel like this so many times but still want to earn more than I do currently and compete with others.
Afraid that I'll get laid off for being too ambitious.
Being on H1b that's a life changing event.
A friend of mine was laid off. What are things to negotiate for in a severance package? Besides COBRA?
Deloitte 🐠, any pointers for navigating the layoff process?
Who else is on the call? Anyone laid off while on a project? Any compensation? Notice period?
My anxiety levels are through the roof
I’m a technical professional who was laid off in July. I have over 8 years of Technical experience and actively job searching!
Please DM me if you’re interested in sending a referral for any IT positions!
Joining the ranks of those being laid off due to Covid, I’m now looking to go freelance. Having worked as an Agency Producer my entire career, but jobs now being scarce I’m looking to broaden my horizon and also seek work in Production Companies.
For those of you who are doing both, or did the switch, what did you find most different or challenging going from Agency to Production Company side? Was there anything that threw you off or that you hadn’t anticipated? Any regrets? Pitfalls to avoid?
Got laid off due to everything and being a new hire (started in Jan). With barely any audit experience how should I go about job searching? Don’t think PA firms are hiring, should I just go industry?
I got divorced and laid off all in the span of six months. It’s been the worst year of my life but I’m still here and I’m going to make it through this somehow. Really hoping 2020 brings better days.
Will org transformation / human capital see a greater increase in work post virus given the layoffs, etc? Or will companies not want to spend for consulting firms?
Accenture squad...with our fiscal year coming to an end and ratings about to begin, should we expect to see layoffs similar to Deloitte and PwC this year?
Currently onboarding to a new role, at a global bank, and they are asking for a termination letter from a previous consulting employer from 2 years ago. I provided the background check company proof that I was eligible for unemployment since I did not get fired; it was due to performance, too technical for me. However I do not have any letter stating why I was let go. I have been requesting a letter for over 2 weeks from the employer but they’re not answering. Do I have to provide this ?
For anyone who’s seen it before, what do recession layoffs look like? How can you tell when they’re close?
Accepted a dream offer at a top tier agency after 4+ months of rejections after being laid off. I’m so excited about it, but so afraid to mention it truly publicly yet in case I somehow jinx it.
Does anyone else find it rude if being interviewed and the interviewer asks if they know the reason behind why you were laid off? 🙄
Is anyone on here who was laid off be Deloitte a few months ago? What was your severance? Have they helped you find a new job?
How bad do you have to mess up to get fired due to issues with your expenses? I think I have messed up my expenses a little and now I am having nightmares
For moms that are nursing, does your firm provide any sort of accommodation or room at your office?
Anyone know of a good health tech recruiter?
Matched with a guy that’s a Manager / PL at another firm. I’m at the preMBA level. Anyone else into dating someone of a different tenure / age?
Got my Peloton and I love it! Great workout....I'm drenched in sweat by the end. Definitely feel like the spin classes are studio quality. If you are on the fence, just get it, you won't regret it!
Any experience with stuttering? My son started stuttering occasionally sometime before turning 4. Doc said he'd probably grow out of it. Now he's almost 5 and in the last month or so, it has gotten drastically worse (occurring most of the time he speaks) and is causing him a lot of frustration. (We have an appointment with pediatrician next week, just interested in experiences.)
The weather is 80 degrees and mostly sunny here.

Venting: Reviewing MSA templates and markups to my company’s template by non U.S. companies = NIGHTMARE. 😫
I got the 2018 scaries 😰
What has gone wrong in Chicago in the last two years? There wasalways at least one major piece of work the whole world noticed, usually from Leo Burnett or Ogilvy. But the tone and energy of work from San Francisco and New York agencies is just light years ahead of Chicago now. It all just feels so mediocre and dated. Where is the groundbreaking idea? Do you need financial backers for the most forward thinking teams to open a place? You can’t blame clients, clients a￼red the same everywhere.
The following things keep showing up in my yard at least 1x/year. Any ideas why?

My MIL, who comes over during the week to watch my 7 month old, called this morning to say that they were informed they may have been exposed. My FIL was running a fever during the night. Obviously, she is not here today but now I’m freaking out that we were all exposed since she’s been here this week. 😔 My daughter is high risk and I’m just worried.
