How do you roll with the punches? When I make even a small mistake that anyone could make my mind immediately goes to "well that's that, I'm getting fired"
Are the EY layoff news true?
Recently laid off at a small gov contracting firm (non cyclical to this economy). My wife and I are expecting and thankfully live below our means. She has a great job too, thankfully…How should I maximize my severance and what should I ask for beyond cash? They offered 2 months of cash and my stock paid out. I was employed for 2 years. They at one point extended the potential of partnership and I’d like more, and they have the money. Should I ask for lump sum or spread it out?

Can you get fired while you are pregnant in NJ? My work has been slightly affected due to what I am going through but my manager sent me a long email today pointing the things that had to be fixed. We have weekly one on one calls to discuss work. Maybe they are collecting evidence before firing me.
Not to be a debbie, but can anyone from the last recession tell me more about layoffs? When would you expect that to happen if things continue as is? And does what account you work on matter?

For people moving from PwC to EY, what’s the reason for your move? Does EY give you a significant raise which is more than the recent raise announced by PwC?
I was caught off guard at my compensation meeting by getting a raise to $100k but also getting a promotion. The raise was decent and it was the minimum I was expecting, but since I got promoted as well I thought the amount should have been higher. We offered a potential candidate $100k for my previous title. For future reference, how can I bring that up without sounding ungrateful and unappreciative? Thoughts?
My in-laws currently live nearby and they have been so wonderful with date nights, weekday babysitting, etc now that we have a 10 month old. We will probably have baby number 2 right after husband graduates, which is also when we want to move cities. Would love to hear stories about people who make it work/thrive without family nearby (budgets for hired help, etc). We would probably move 3-4 hours away from them, where we have most of our network (but not immediate family).
