I personally don't believe it, but one of my recently lay-off colleague mentioned that in big 4 (especially Deloitte-KPMG) laid off people of color in their recent lay offs...Mostly Asian-south Asian, I just want to clear my head and wanted to ask this.. Thanks for your input! :(
I just got pulled off a brief and replaced by another writer....am I about to fall victim to Corona layoffs?
Which of the holding companies do you think treats their employees best? I’m thinking pay, promotions, effort to avoid layoffs, etc.
A reminder for those laid off: your job doesn't define you, nor should you let it define your worth. You are MUCH more than your employer & you should act as such. It's a part of you, not all of you.
Can somebody refer me at MBB, Accenture, EY and PwC? Victim of Deloitte layoff. Would appreciate any and all the help I can get!

Ideas for bday/xmas presents for mom? She’s going through some personal stuff and still hasnt settled into her new place so I dont want to get her materialistic goods that will take up more space when she’s still unpacking and buying things for the place.

Thoughts?
Started interviewing client side in JULY and they want me to do one last panel interview. But now it’s so close EOY and getting my 401k match pay out that I’m rethinking it given timing, esp since I would be taking a pay cut to work there. What’s the most you think you can push off a start date to a new job offer?

Never believed in the meme of “entry level job: needs years of experience” unit it happened to me. After a month of interviewing, an IQ test, and a modelling test, just got rejected for my dream job in the final round. Absolutely devastated and ashamed. I feel like I’ll never be good enough.
4th year going into my 5th year and am leading discovery and case management on a case with a $5 million budget (yeah!) with a rocket docket. Starting to understand why partners have no time to do substantive work: it’s all answering client questions and managing staff, associates, and reviewing partners. Any tips for the transition? I’ve never been too demanding from my colleagues and usually just pick up any slack myself. Now I need to motivate others and give direction.
been in a relationship for 2.5 years and realizing this isn't going to be the one. It's going to crush him. I've been on the receiving end of a breakup and I can't believe I'm thinking of putting someone I love through something so awful, even if I know it's the right path for us both. I'm in my late 30s and the thought of starting again makes me so sad. keep me in your thoughts, family.
