LA, what's good? I know basically every agency out here had layoffs last year, so is anyone looking to hire a mid-level AD?
If you are separated from your firm and you are kept on payroll for an additional month to facilitate payout of severance when does the 60 day grace period count start? Is it on the last day on payrl?
I was laid off in April when there was just email and phones. Cut to five months later and I’m working again. Yay. But suddenly it’s all Zoom, Slack, Teams, Slides, Sheets. Email is dead. And phones are only for Zoom, Slack, Teams, Slides and Sheets. It feels like I woke up from a coma in a shitty version of the future and everyone else is fine with it. How did anyone adjust to this?
Was lucky to get a job shortly after being laid off. Work’s not hard but feeling burned out cause of bad process, meaningless jobs on top of the pointlessness of everything happening. How you coping?
Anyone else having crazy layoffs this week? 😞
I wanted to be supportive CHAZ/CHOP here in Seattle but I can’t be anymore. This is no longer a BLM movement protest (which I fully support & protest with) but instead is true anarchy. 1 dead & 1 injured (critical condition) this weekend and tonight over 24 shots fired already tonight in the area. When I first went down to this area last week I felt safe, today I went down there & was scared out of my mind. Seattle get your sh*t together.
Does anyone else feel like their burn-out cycle is shorter? It used to take me about 2 years of grind before I hit a burn-out phase where I needed to do some serious recuperating. It feels like I'm at 3 months now, or even less. I've already spoken to my wife about building quarterly mini-vacations into my schedule just to keep my energy up. And by burn-out, I mean you're at the point that every single ball you are juggling can drop and you get fired and almost see that as a blessing.
For those in senior positions- how are you not constantly worried about the success of your work? There’s so many things that can affect P&L that are out of your control, how do you stay calm and not feel like you’re going to get fired as soon as growth slows?
Somewhat of a recent hire - how hard is it to transfer into a different practice in consulting? Will I get fired for asking?
If you're laid off, do they ask you to resign? If so, can you refuse and ask them to fire you instead?
It is very difficult to do my job and think creatively when I’m living each day in constant fear of being laid off. I’m grateful to have a job, but damn, sometimes I feel like I’m coming apart at the seams. Happy Saturday, everyone.
If the big4 has an up or out model, do a lot of senior managers get laid off? Not everyone can be a partner/principle. How long can someone be a partner/principle for?
Analysts who left in their 1st year either (voluntarily or laid off) where did you end up and how long did it take you? Consulting isn't for me and I'm obviously only eligible for entry level roles
After watching succession it lowkey felt like it was written about the Ford family. Around the time I was watching the show I met bill ford at some event I help organize at the train station being rebuilt. Thought I was on the come up. Couple months later I was laid-off/fired ahah. Wasn’t even a mid manager was just an entry level employee lololol.
I’ve been terminated by my firm. Is there a reason not to sign the separation agreement and accept severance?
Recreational drug enthusiasts, how has lockdown affected that part of your lifestyle? Doing more, less, the same as before? Dealers still active or is stuff harder to get? Layoffs=Walter White 2.0s?
After 5 years of good ratings I was terminated from a regional CPA firm, but my last day is next month. Am I obligated to tell a prospective employer I was fired while I am technically still employed?
So I typically don’t answer the EEO questions at the end of applications that ask for race and gender. Lately I’ve noticed companies following up via email for this information after I submit the application. Am I the only one who does this? Does it even matter? Any thoughts on the follow up emails asking for the information after the application has already been submitted?
Someone is conducting a job interview during breakfast in the Marriott lounge. Everyone can hear the questions/answers. It's for a sales job. This is weird.
WFH from wherever until January 2021 was announced for us yesterday! 😀🙃🙂🙃🙂 Introvert heaven. 💫
Does EY-P offer good exit opportunities? Is CDD at EY-P worth the grind (no kids, yet)? How is it overall?
Okay I’m going to say it if hasn’t been said before: I want the option to go back to the office now. I get some of you have kids or prefer wfh but I can’t stand it. I hate being cramped up and some people also live with toxic family members. We should make it optional for those who want/need to come back
Friend interviewing for Account Manager role at EY, any tips for the final in-person interviews? Thanks
I’ve been out of consulting for 2 years. I went to company A (was a series E startup but has since went public). I left company A for company B about 3 month ago. I had a job I liked and it was relatively easy at company A but I felt like it wasn’t pushing me at all so I left. I started at company B (a series C startup) a couple of months ago and haven’t had a great time. I’m struggling and don’t really enjoy my team. My old boss at Company A just left and the company posted a job opening (cont)
Should I work a bit during holiday break to get my areas in good shape or just say f this and take time off because audit is going to get done no matter what. I inherited messy area from a person who recently left the firm and leadership was saying we (as in I) need to put in extra effort to close down review notes that the previous girl left (there’s about 89 open as of now lol)
Ladies, any interest in starting a plus size bowl? Discuss any and all topics related to live your best big beautiful life. Clothing, travel, work, fitness, whatever? It there's interest I'll start one (invite our consulting friends also). Do we invite dudes?
Is a tie necessary for a virtual interview with big 4 or will a shirt and jacket suffice?
Need some advice - been at the D for a year and have been on the same implementation project for over a year. Have a technical background and am thinking of starting to look for exits to industry but also am curious what strategy projects are and if I would be interested in the work. Is it worth networking onto a strategy project at the D or should I just continue to look for industry exists and then go b school and then try for MBB/T2 ?
Had global services, didn’t even qualify for gold the next year, united gave me premier 1K. Anyone been able to status match to delta platinum in this situation without an activity statement showing..
There was a website someone mentioned on here, similar to Scott Flight Deals. Was a great website letting you pick dates and duration and it would recommend trips. Can't find it in my bookmarks. Help?
