Laid off by Deloitte. 7 years of experience in strategy and operations consulting. Need help with companies that sponsor
Laid off recently with just under 5 years experience in copy — already feeling a little disheartened by the experience. Seems that even when a lay off isn’t performance-based, it still feels like 💩
OK gonna maybe open a can of worms here but I have to ask: it seems the sudden inflation we're seeing has taken the ins. ind. by surprise. The cost/expense projections done X yrs. ago for this and poss'y subsequent yrs. have been thrown off. Costs to repair/replace cars have shot up unexpectedly. Same for houses. Med costs have all gone up. Ins. cos. have relatively thin profit margins to begin with. There's talk of cost-cutting measures-- incl. layoffs. How realistic are these concerns?
Any layoffs in tax tech ?
Need advice: My firm just fired my whole team (said it’s becoming a conflict of interest buyside vs sellside). After the meeting, I was offered to stay at the firm and move to sellside, or I was also offered to follow my MD (who built out this sector) as he starts his own business (non compete waived, clients to be transferred). Interested to hear people’s thoughts on this.
During the panny, my agency moved a handful of us to a different office with no choice. Basically said we’d be fired if we didn’t comply. When we asked if we would ever have to move to the new city, we were given no answers for months. Now, they’re saying back to office in September and I have a feeling they’ll be expecting us to move. Should I ask for money to move? I personally can’t afford to and told them from the start I can’t move. Also, I really don’t want to leave my S/O. Help!
With so many layoffs and the strange uncertainty of this industry right now—is anyone scared to death?
Cooley sounds like a good firm? Standing up to Elon Musk when he wanted a associate fired
In January I left my job in what I thought was a toxic workplace after almost 8 years with the company. 3 months into my new job I was furloughed which eventually turned into a layoff. Now I’m back and my old job bc they miss me dearly and finding a new job during COVID hasn’t given me any worthwhile options. I guess sometimes it takes a pandemic to give you some perspective 🤷🏽♀️
Why are so many agencies struggling right now and doing layoffs? Is this normal or are more brands going in house or what?
I got laid off in April, and I’ve been doing ok, but starting to crack. Feel like I’m becoming super irrelevant and like my life isn’t moving forward. A lot of anxiety the last couple days, followed by exhaustion.
Well fuck. I got laid off. Just when you think you’re in the clear, 2020 brings the pain. Guess it’s true that the big title comes with a big target.
Anyone else automatically assume you’re getting fired after you get locked out of your email account? I swear this only happens to me on Friday mornings when I’ve recently changed my login credentials 🤯😤
Anyone know what IPGs severance policy is?
Just got fired for the first time Yikes Was only there 4 months What should I know? 2.5 years other experience Was at a small small shop and was told I’d be a better fit at a bigger shop.... 😔
I’ll almost just want my agency to have the layoffs/furlough already so I know if I’m safe or not. Scopes are getting cut left and right and I’m tired of being anxious.
How will the Covid crisis affect Indian IT industry? In the short term, I think there will be job cuts but after that, outsourcing will increase since companies don't need people at office to do work

Anyone from EY Digital willing to connect? Interested in your digital strategy practice. TIA
Living in DC making 73k and still feel strapped. Don't understand how ppl make it with less around here. All you boasting about your 100k net worth at 22y.o are full of bs or trust fund babies

Starting at LEK next month. Anyone have any insights on the benefits offered (outside of health care insurance)? Was also curious if they offered a gym membership

It’s 1230am, good music, a glass of G&T - best time of the day to really focus and build decks that clients will never see 😌

I'm sitting here by myself at a restaurant and I have a bottle of wine open. All the servers are judging but I'm a single consultant on alt travel. Sigh 🍷🍷🍷
