Sorry to hear that. What firm was it?

like

Anything that is actually personal, non-work related that you want to keep. Resumes, personal, photos, tax docs, paystubs, etc. If it's a tool, code, template, or deliverable example (even if it's sanitizes) those are company property (at least for most consulting company) that you cannot take without approval.

Take anything personal on your laptop, and email your manager outlining what personal files you are taking. They will be auditing your download activity and you want to be up front. Do not take ANYTHING that isn’t your personal stuff. Not even a paper or deck you drafted. I also would take any training certificates, your training transcript, etc. That may be helpful later and certainly ok to take.

Is anyone here constantly worried about getting laid off? I didn’t get moved to my next level (SA1 > SA2 > SA3 before manager) last review cycle (I was 6 months in the firm).

I’ve had good reviews from the former, and mixed reviews from the latter. Wondering if this is anxiety or intuition.
