Didn't you read the other topic, almost no one gets fired from big 4. If you do, just go across the street to another firm, you will probably get a raise

This also tends to be a slow time of year, so I wouldn't start freaking out just yet. A lot of my coworkers are also unassigned, nothing personal.

I'm sorry, but what is the issue here? Summer is coming up, so just lay out by the pool and enjoy your summer break.

Talk to your scheduler even if you don't know them super well. I was going to be unassigned for a month last year and would've been bored out of my mind, so I told her that if anything came up, I would be glad to help. I ended up being pulled onto an advisory gig in NYC for three weeks and do something totally unrelated to audit. It was awesome and refreshing!

Hmmm. Ask for more work. That would be suggestion.

@EY2 who should I ask tho? Meeting with my counselor next week and planning to talk to the scheduler

I am just scared I will be put on some random projects doing tie out and transactional testing :(

Oh I'm staff 1

#OP, your team leaders first and also talk to your counselor. We need to reach out instead of them.

I'm thinking about leaving the advertising world for qual research. I love being a strategist but I loath the client BS and the internal agency egos. I found a research company that does interesting bespoke qual that will still allow me to be creative and strategic. Plus an actual life outside of work. But it would mean a 20-40% pay cut. Has anyone ever been in this position or have some advice?

So I love my fiance with all my heart. He's the most patient, caring, loving man. Our wedding is planned for some time end of next year. But he just got recently laid off and doubts started to creep in again. He has always worked, but always in a dead end kind of job. And this job was his first "professional" job and now that's out the window. While I trust in his potential, he's not dumb or anything. He's a bit slow (not very aggressive, quiet). I just keep climbing up the ladder so the gap is
