Marketing Mgr / 33 / SF / 10yrs exp / 107K ... I’ve been promised a title + salary three times in 2.5 years and each time, layoffs happen instead of promotions. Over it. How high do I aim at the next?
Double dipping on severance and paycheck from new job. Can former companies even find out that you have a new job if you keep quiet?
Got an offer in industry and also got fired by the firm within an hour yesterday 😂 finally living my life for once!
Afraid of being fired after a “performance talk”..I was looking for a new position before this, but now I feel like I have to take the first offer I can get...can anyone relate/offer advice?
To all of those who were laid off (including me), take the silver linings. You will no longer work almost as hard as IB while getting paid 1/3 as much. Hate to get religious here, but when God shuts a door, he opens a window. Take this opportunity to try something you’re actually interested in. It’s a long life, one job does not make or break! I for one am feeling better by the hour. Why work for a firm that doesn’t care about you or your time? Fresh start, new day. Let’s roll baby.
Do you think it is quite possible to get fired by asking too many questions as an experienced senior 1? If so, i might get fired after this busy season.

Does anyone have any books/media to recommend on being an Asian in the USA / UK (and particularly being East or Southeast Asian)?

I mean people in major cities are still buying houses with a view. I see a lot of properties go pending quick. Aren’t there enough people getting laid off ?
Intern hire set to start Oct (Healthcare/MC)... All the layoff posts have me a bit concerned, and has me considering other options. Am I overreacting?
I think leveraging an offer to get more money is the worst. Now your bosses know you want to leave, you are the fist option during layoffs and you look like an ass the other company.
You thought the last rounds of layoffs were bad? With continued political instability / uncertainty under Drumpf, companies will stop or slow spending on consulting and a bunch of us will get fired...

Hey ladies. I need your opinion on something. I’m planning my wedding and deciding what to do for the father daughter moments. My dad passed away when I was four, so I would like my uncle to (cont.)
