No layoffs in my firm, yet. But rumor has it, pre-COVID low billers are on the chopping block. I.e. an excuse to cut dead weight.

Got laid off on Monday. Felt okay at first, but now feel inadequate and useless since Julie Sweet mentioned the 25K that Accenture laid off were low performers. I know I wasn’t a poor performer, I got dinged for not doing enough projects in my practice, but still go top reviews for my projects. Just want to vent.
