Anyone have any tips on how to manage a noisy roommate? I'm losing my mind with this wfh and she does seem to respect personal space. She just got fired and now has been drunk since the last 3 days.
Any minority lawyers in here that were blacklisted from big firms for a time gap or after layoff? How did you move forward?
What if we get laid off? How F’d are we? I started my career in 2012 after the recession. The anxiety keeps me up at night. Apologies to anyone who has lost their job, but is there any hope?
Pretty devastated right now. Got laid off sometime back and after few interviews just got rejected after final rounds with the firm I really wanted to get in. Can anyone help me get a referral?
Tips on not taking rejection personally? Was broken up with in September, a few days after I was also laid off. I’ve been going through the interview process and every time something doesn’t work out, I get those same uncomfortable feelings I had in September of not being good enough🥺 any and all tips welcome!
I was laid off in March and have a had a hard time finding the next job that’s a good match. My last job was a total nightmare and so I’m being very intentional with my next position. Does this major time in between jobs concern companies when hiring or is it understandable during these uncertain times?
If things don’t get better in the next few months , are we the first ones in the line of fire ? I feel that layoffs are imminent.
Ever get to that point working late on a weekend when you can’t care anymore and you’re almost hoping to get fired so you can just go stock shelves at Costco and be poor but sane? Asking for a friend. A very tired friend.
I would never do this bc I’d 100% be fired but I think the most hilarious prank would be to add PowerPoint effects to an important presentation - like you click the next slide and the next slide zooms in with a star shape and a lil whooooosh sound effect
Just found out my dad (single parent of 4) will get his job back at Live Nation starting May 1 after being laid off in Sept.. so many happy tears cried this afternoon 😭😭 I am the oldest and have been taking care of some stuff since he was let go. So much fkn relief heading into this weekend 😭😭

Recently started this job out of college, having never really worked in a corporate setting before. Consistently feel like I’m not delivering, anxious about being fired. Not sure if I’m actually under
I made many mistakes at work ( most of them involving sending e-mails unintentionally offensive to client and interna9l)... i want to ask the partners why have i not been fired at this point...?
Received offers at TikTok and Twitter. Given current situation, thoughts on asking for a severance package as part of the offer?
EY H1B related question- does anybody know if EY does "bridge transfers"? Context: Got laid off from previous job and before I ran out of the 60 day grace period, transferred H1 to a small IT consulting firm but approval is pending. Wondering if EY will apply for a transfer even though the previous one is pending, I know it's completely legal and acceptable to do so (based on advice from multiple immigration lawyers). Has anyone been through the same situation? Continued in comments..
Can I exclude my current job (3 months in) from my resume? I left consulting, prior to layoff, and joined an industry but quickly realized that was a mistake. I want to start looking again, but worry if this would label me as job hopping. Current job- 3 months. Previously at a small consulting gig for about a year and at one of the big4 for about 6 years.
Do people usually resign knowing they will be let go or wait to be let go to collect severance?
Ah now it did.

It's snowing in Miami right now
What time do you expect your staff to be in the office in the morning? These 2 keep coming in 910 and 930 when we agreed on 9 (which is generous).
Can we consider ourselves safe if you haven't been fired before July? Since the base comp kicks in then? (I haven't had my CRT yet.. RP in some training..)
Managing a sizeable (abt 20 ppl) implementation where the Director in charge CANNOT keep to the point in meetings. He is long winded, boring, never makes the necessary point and always runs the meeting over. Personally his own meetings always run over and he messes up team calls. He is otherwise “nice” and hinting him has not worked. We never get anything done as a team if he is around. Pls advise!!!! (I am second in command)
FS peeps, what are some exit opportunities you've seen colleagues leave for or are interviewing for yourselves?
Left Deloitte in October and want to go back. How long after is not considered too soon?
Cleavage at work/on client site: yay or nay?
