I was laid off from a resource management role, working with employees approaching or on the bench, working with managers to staff projects, and support functions like report creation, scheduling, etc. Roles like this are few and many large consulting firms have frozen internal hiring. Do you think it would be beneficial to get a SHRM cert? Would that help get a "talent related" HR role? Worth the money? I have a background in recruitment as well.
Anyone made the switch from Tax/Audit to analyst/Consulting? What's your favorite thing about the switch? I just received an offer from Accenture as an Analyst for something unrelated to my last position. Really fired up. 🎉
Sorry if this isn’t the right bowl! I was fired from my last job due to performance issues. I filed for unemployment and was approved, however my former employer filed an appeal. I’m not even sure what they’re protesting but it’s making me really nervous. What should I do now?
I'm not one to advocate people being fired, but how the fuck are these refs still employed??
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/
Just got fired (freelancer) for being sick.
Avoiding the question about layoffs. Good job Miles.
How common is PIP in consulting? When someone is fired in consulting, is it normally preceded by a PIP, or is that the abnormal case? (Talking firms 1000+ people)
Was laid off in April and just got an offer for 25% more than i was making but for a role that I am not too excited about. Times are tough and i do need to get income. How bad is it to accept but continue with the rounds of interviews I started for roles I am more excited about?
Can we talk about the failure that is vision 2020? I dunno about yalls office , but here in the south. We've had employees laid off , list multiple clients , and are now trying to pass stuff to India

For those of you that got coached-out/fired from PA, what was the conversation like leading up to it?
I hope every day that the assholes that fired me for bullshit reasons (other than my salary was too high and they were awful managers and worse people) would perish in flames.
Anyone else starting to feel nervous about the extra $600/week unemployment going away? Also, is it just me or does it seem stupidly misguided that the Senate/WH prefer to send another stimulus check instead of extending unemployment benefits? Stimulus checks go to a much smaller subset of the population and aren't necessarily going to help those impacted by COVID layoffs. Not to mention the argument that it disincentivizes people going back to work is dumb when there are no jobs to return to.
Got an offer in industry and also got fired by the firm within an hour yesterday 😂 finally living my life for once!
Marriott platinum members, what kind of benefits or upgrade do you get when you arrive at a hotel?
I have 50k in my 401k account and I am planning to move back to India by next year, I plan to be vested in the 401k for long term, hopefully till maturity. In that case, when I withdraw my 401k amount after 30 years will I be liable to pay taxes in India or USA?and will it make sense to convert the 401k to roth IRA?
Not sure if anyone can relate or has any advice, but lately I’ve been feeling a little lost as far as where to live. After 7 years in NYC, I let my apartment go and came to CO for the summer to climb and hike outside. I like the outdoor activity, but don’t think I could live here indefinitely. Now that work’s remote, I don’t really know where to go next.
Why are firms so hesitant to fire low performers? It’s horribleeee for the teams that these people are on because everyone else has to pick up the slack
Here we go! ✈️ TSA, crying children, tourists, decks, calls, WebEx, perpetual email chains. Vroom Vroom.
Ladies—I am terrified of flying—particularly the parts where we are not over land and the parts where turbulence is really bad. I literally just sit on the plane, staring at the map on the tv screen, with anxiety. I’m supposed to be flying across the world on a 14-hour non-stop flight in 2 weeks. I grew up moving/traveling and therefore flying a ton but always hated it and was scared. I haven’t been on a plane since September of 2019 (due to covid and moving to the same city as family). Advice?
Feeling frustrated with my career progression after being a senior planner for +2.5 years. Trying to change careers but that's not going well and I can't seem to land a manager position in media. :/

How do you share your offer letter for counter offers to new company when they ask for it? Do you share the full offer letter? Or do you hide company name & other content? Or you just send them the salary breakup?

Fed Fish, trying to settle an argument. From what you've observed, what is the most in-demand non-IT certification in the Fed space? Thanks.
Big project, 2 SMs, the other SM is such so insecure that it’s hilarious. Tried to get me rolled off by bad mouthing me. Some real petty house of cards stuff everyday with this person. PPMDs, advice?
Help discuss pros and cons. I have a case that's based on a previously litigated matter now brought against another D. I can bring it in State Court where other D was or I can bring it in Fed Court through Diversity. I trust State Court judges in this court and the filing fee is alot less. It might be removed anyway so should I just file in Fed Court?
First week in Big 4 and everyone is asking me to join their reinvest project… how do I say no? Or should I be taking in as much as possible? Just worried about burn out.
If we mandate masks for US citizens who are fully vaccinated why don’t we check Covid status of illegals and prevent them from entering? Heck, they shouldn’t be allowed to enter anyway!!
