Should I take a 15% pay cut and leave Accenture for industry? Or wait it out to find a better paying opportunity? Worried about chargeability and layoffs, hate the process of getting staffed. Wondering if it's worth it though for such a big drop.
Planning a trip to Glacier this summer and would like to visit Banff while that way. I see Canada has random testing for even fully vaccinated travelers. Has anyone crossed the border from US to Canada during COVID? Would I likely run into issues? For context I am a US citizen and fully vaccinated.
Hi, I’m a recent Economics graduate of UCLA and currently work at PwC as a risk consultant (~6 months). I’m being asked to relocate to the east coast from SF but I don’t have the means to due to health concerns in the family (covid). I would love to connect with any sourcing/recruiting professionals at Google that might have any entry level non-technical roles come across their desk. I excel in project management, data visualization, risk management, marketing, and communications. Thank you!
I thought the great resignation would pause layoffs, but just saw two BBDO posts on LinkedIn… Any other agencies going through layoffs this early in the year?
So what’s going on inside The Richards Group? Everyone just waiting for a big layoff? Did all those clients actually stop work ASAP or is that just what they tell the news, but in reality it’ll be a gradual transition?

Has anyone crossed the border (via car) into Italy recently? I know I need a covid test, I’m just wondering how this is actually… enforced. Are there border controls? Or is it more like random testing? Would be driving in from Austria for reference.
Looking for favorite activities to keep 2 very active toddlers busy while they’re home next week. It’s year end for me so I’m super busy and schools closed for a Covid outbreak. They are 1 and 3. Any and all ideas welcome
I personally feel that I am more of a slower worker than my other peers at WIPFLI. I take my time when I work through my assignments. Recently I have had a conversation from a Partner and separate conversation with a Sr. Manager who is my performance coach. They both say it takes what it takes to complete a job. But both are asking questions about my over budget. What do I do? I’m scared that I will get fired, honestly. I just try to do my best. I’m thinking of having a chat with them.
My wife was informed a few weeks ago that she would be laid off as of end of year. She signed the paperwork and will be receiving a decent severance due to her tenure there. Now the company is saying they may have some other work for her to do for a few months and they could extend her contract if interested. If she says no, is she still eligible for her severance since she already signed her paperwork?

Anyone ever transition from creative to account? Thinking that if I get laid off I might go after those roles too. How’d you get them to give you a shot?
I was never a perfume person, but recently decided I want to be. We don’t go anywhere notable with COVID around, so I just wear it around the house in my lounge outfits (aka uniform of the past two years). Still perks me up though! I’m curious 🐠, what are your go-to scents?? I’m obsessed with Prada Candy Night.
Any wagers # of layoffs at end of FY?
What is your COVID safety practice? I strip off all my clothes as soon as I come home, take showers immediately so “outside germs” don’t touch the apartment interior, and wash my clothes immediately. My therapist mentioned this is a bit overboard - I’m curious to understand what others do and what practices are more “common” vs not

I’ve worked at my center for 3 years now and we always do something for birthdays. Last year we didn’t really do much bc we were still figuring out covid. This year I expected at least something for my birthday…. But alas, nothing. I’m pretty sure my boss and coworkers forgot. I’m so over where I am, they really don’t care about the teachers here.
Amazon Web Services Currently looking into a role as Senior Customer Solutions Manager with AWS. Does anyone have any information about the role? What to expect from the firm, compensation, etc.?
Kind of aggravated with the example male leadership is setting right now with regard to parenting at CV. At least 5 men in leadership have had new babies in the last month and it seems like some have taken no time off or only the bare minimum. We have 12 weeks and should be encouraged to use it! If leadership isn’t taking advantage of their own policy, what does that say to the rest of the staff? In my perspective, this is likely further contributing to the gender disparity in CV leadership
