So many new hires coming in. I just don't get it, with all the layoffs that happened a few months back and a bench so deep..
Ex big4 told me that the best talent leave, bottom gets fired and the middle performers make partner or stay. He's now CFO at a start up. Not amazing but definitely better off than me
If I ever start a company, I am going to have a no acronyms policy. Any one who over complicates things with acronyms will be fired on the spot.
I was laid off for the first time last wk and I feel completely empty. Does anyone have any advice? I've been talking with recruiters, trying to find connections, but it all feels hollow and hopeless.
Want to look at the bright side of being laid off. Any stories of success from being laid off? How was it a blessing in disguise?
I was fired on Friday for performance issues. I am determined to improve in the future and am taking steps to do so. Any tips for finding a new job? I’m worried I’ll be blackballed now.
Anyone else come from creative? I made the move about a year ago after being laid off (out of necessity, junior strat roles in creative were hard to come by), and have found the transition...
I hear two more employees from pwc got laid off this week too.people I knew closely.suffering due to bad management hiring decisions? And low utilization ?
Receiving any negative/constructive feedback scares the sh*t out of me. I had a toxic previous job experience with a manager who used any small thing as a means to scare me out of employment. Now at my new place of employment, if I do get a constructive comment or something to work on, a lot of anxious thoughts run through my mind until I can somehow calm down and go back to working somewhat productively again - but I always have that fear of being fired over it. 😔
When doing background checks before you get an offer do they look at employment history or just criminal background? My friend has been unemployed for over a year but just received a job offer. He was fired from his last job and has been stating he still works there. How likely are employers to find out that he was lying?
Starting mba in the fall. Should I keep working until July/august in hopes voluntary layoffs with severance start or stop working in June (which was the original plan)?
New & young consultant here. Feeling so inadequate on my project, have received positive feedback so far ... imposter syndrome and fear of being fired. Any advice?
Laid off a few weeks ago from AFS. Is anyone willing to refer me to a position at Deloitte GPS, Guidehouse, or Booz? Experience at AFS mainly consisted of Fed contract pricing, change management work, and digital transformation strategy.
For those of you who have been laid off - has your view of the multi month lockdown changed?
I am so glad that PwC has not fired the accountants for the Oscar fiasco. Good to see firms making an attempt to protect their employees despite so much media scrutiny and witch-hunting
Guys. Need some advice. I’ve failed my pip recently at a big4. Couple questions (1) how does it work from here? (2) how can I extend my stay to find another role? (3) how public is it? Who will know I was fired vs I left?
I am interested in getting my SHRM-CP certification this year and I was wondering which study methods and materials worked best for those of you who passed the exam. Also, what are your roles in HR?!
Have my first interview out of three tomorrow at PwC for Talent ID associate any tips are welcomed ☺️☺️
Can anyone working at Clearview (UK) give insight into culture, WLB & promotion cycles? Haven't heard great things from US junior staff...
What skills do I need to build to position myself to become the GC for a blockchain company, preferably in a role allowing me to provide substantial input on business decisions. I’ve seen some on LinkedIn act as outside advisors to VC firms (in addition to their GC roles) given the significant regulatory risk in the space, which sounds very interesting as well. Shooting for 700k+ TC after factoring in equity upside. Background: 2014 grad, V10 tech trans/Corp exp, AGC fin services, 350k TC
Hi all. The org i work for pays commissions quarterly, 2 months after the end of the Q. I am currently interviewing for a role that i like, but i am also having one of my best quarters and expect to close 500% of target. If I quit right after the Q ends but before the payday, I am worried I will not be paid fairly. I may be capped or something else. What do you think I need to do? I feel that I will need to reject an opportunity i like because of this paycheck.
Career change: I’m a relatively successful attorney (age: 32) at one of the best/most lucrative firms in my city. I have no complaints vis-a-vis work environment. I’m surrounded by smart lawyers (and nice people) who have a passion for practicing law. Problem is, I simply don’t share that passion. Has anyone had success transitioning out of law? If so, what fields? Do you recommend giving it a certain number of years before jumping ship? I’m nearly 7 years in.
New fish looking for career guidance. I'm a corporate recruiter with 3 years of experience. Finishing my degree in HRM 5/2022. I'm thinking of getting my SHRM -CP shortly after graduation. I'm not sure of where to go after that, but I doubt I will stick with recruiting or my current firm. Has anyone here started off in recruiting and branched out to other HR functions? Do you like your new role? Do you wish you stuck with recruiting?
Does anybody work as a conflicts attorney at an amlaw 100 or 200 firm? I am curious to hear pros and cons from those who are in the role.

For those in smaller high growth tech companies, where do you turn for resources on org development, engagement, trends, etc.? I’m moving from a large tech org to a a 150 person company. SHRM does not seem relevant at all. Podcasts, social media followings, etc?

How do you guys interview externally when working non stop and always being on call for clients?
My shop got back to the office and whenever we have a client/vendor call and they are all still remote I feel so embarrassed to be dialing in from a room full of people. Just make us look like morons.
Anyone go from MBB/T2 to MBA school and do something OTHER than return to consulting / go for high finance? Curious what your return on making that decision is and if it’s ever worth going if you’re already in consulting. Seems like most non-Consulting or IB jobs you could just skip the MBA.
What does Product Management in the Professional Services practice of a large SaaS company do? Sounded like identifying client professional services needs and developing a service offering for that need; but in my experience most professional service offerings are reactionary, i.e. responding to RFPs. This sounds like creating a service and trying to aggressively sell it to clients that aren’t asking for the service.
Hi bowl, I'm not okay today. I woke up feeling off, then my project told us that my workstream is ending this coming Friday. I feel like an after thought, I feel so anxious and so tired. I know I should eat today but I just want to lay down in bed and disappear. I'm sorry for this post, I just needed to write this and cry as I do it.
