Daaaaamn Deloitte. Fired employee sentenced in attempted murder of ex-boss in Southlake, Texas. http://www.star-telegram.com/news/local/community/northeast-tarrant/article149830554.html
This country needs labor laws that actually protect workers is when time like this comes, average folks like us don't have to worry to sick about layoffs.
Google hired Timnit Gebru to be an outspoken critic of unethical AI. Then she was fired for it. https://www.washingtonpost.com/technology/2020/12/23/google-timnit-gebru-ai-ethics/
When someone gets fired/laid off but they keep their previous title/agency on LinkedIn, does anyone ever tell them to change it?
People who have had confidence knocks: how did you get it back? I was laid off, 6M out of work, had therapy, now freelancing but I’m slow af. It’s like my brain only works in 2nd gear now.
Is it noteworthy to have worked in the creative industry for 23 years -18 in advertising, without ever being fired or laid-off? Are there medals or gold watches for that?
is there anything you can do to a previous supervisor who screwed you over due to discrimination ? Reported her to HR but not enough to get her fired.
What’s the average amount of time between full time roles after you’ve been laid off? Also, is it easier for ADs to find work than for CWs?
After the layoffs we had, most people were offered a 90 day notice period, during which they have to be on-call, but there are those that get put on multiple accounts (continued)
Are the layoffs finished? Or are they still going on? I am trying to figure out if I in the green for now.
Have you ever seen one of the nicest, most talented, hardest working people get fired for no good reason. Really breaks my heart about how heartless this industry can be ☹️
Started freelancing last year after being laid off and have been trying to make short term stints work until I find the right gig. However, I feel that most opportunities I can get end up being less than ideal. Dry clients (pharma), chaotic schedules and supplemental work that would never make my portfolio. Debating taking a full time job I’m not that excited about just to get out of this cycle.... Not sure if freelancing just isn’t for me or it’s the current climate. Any advice?
Has anyone negotiated a clause where you can’t be fired/laid off for a certain amount of time after starting a new job?
What is the EY severance package ?
Just found out my manager (who many people are frustrated with) got a rating of 2. Does this mean she may get fired? If so, when would that happen?
My paraplanner is wanting to get started with his CFP. It's been a while since anyone in my office has needed to go through a program. Looking for advice, what path should I suggest; Kaplan, Bryant University, Boston CFP, something else I don't know about? Looking for your ideas on what might be best to use as an educational source for the CFP these days?!? Thank you.
Hi Tax Bowlers, I'm an experienced associate (2yrs) in a Big 4 Transfer Pricing division. I have reached a point in my career where I am considering taking up a professional certification. Several colleagues recommended taking up either ACCA or CFA, however, I see little connection between these certifications and the work that I am currently doing, and what I plan to do in the future. What would you guys suggest? Would it be detrimental to my career if I did not take up any certifications?
Do you think parental leave policies and the culture around it at your company are fair?
Anyone at EY parthenon willing to chat? Interviewing for a director position and looking for any insights. Especially as a Black woman. EY-Parthenon
How important is it to get your CPA in the long run/ outside of big 4? Would CFE be beneficial? I’m a forensics staff.
Talent Acquisition teams: Are you all swamped and behind in your ATS processing right now? Asking as several colleagues and friends are actively submitting REFERRED applications for well-matched roles--but not hearing anything from HR. Is the need for talent real or is it overblown in the media? Or are a lot of TA people simply drowning at work or out on vacation right now? Tx for sharing if you are able! I'd like to give people some hope!
I am about to get an offer from Infosys for Salesforce role. Total experience 11.6 yrs. Currect fixed CTC is 17.3 lakhs. How much can i expect from Infosys.?
I hate it when my date wears lipstick. Why do women do this and how can I get them to stop looking like 🤡s so I can actually have a make-out sesh?
Thoughts on Valassis? Always ran self-serve via TTD, and the first time I'm seeing them on plans in a new role.
Received offer for product management from prestigious non profit tech company; but the pay is quite low. I’m pivoting from consulting and want to break into PM but is it worth it for the low salary?
Some one want to give me a referral for Deloitte? Looking for Accounting & Reporting Advisory Senior position. Currently an experienced audit senior at BDO. On east coast.
Hi all, My team is hiring like crazy for programmatic roles at all levels, from coordinator (entry level) to senior manager (people manager, senior level). Please reach out to me if you are interested! Clients are very cool (including NFL, Lee Jeans, Verizon, and more!)
Decided that I’m leaving audit today. Trying to understand the full range of opportunities in forensics. Will have my CPA and CFE. So far, I understand that there are client-serving firms like FTI and then the B4 will have forensics arms as well. What are some other forensic accounting roles? Pros and cons? Better than audit? Honestly just looking to learn anything.
I am SO tired of hearing “you’re on mute”. How have people not figured out how to effectively use zoom/teams/etc yet. 🤦♀️😭

I recently attended an Indian (zoom) wedding wherein the bride’s mother used intelligent before beautiful and kind to describe the bride. First time ever did I hear such a thing. Can’t wait for the day when this becomes the business-as-usual. Women are more than their looks.
Recently I have been exploring a career change but a successful first shot at IUI has me panicking about staying or going. Any lessons learned on how to approach this huge decision?
