My boss and mentor was recently laid off with the cuts made last week, and I have a gut feeling I’m next. I’ve tried my best to stay positive with my current agency, but it’s time to move on. I need a change of pace. Understand just about every shop is on a hiring freeze, but anyone need a strategist?

Question for big law litigation associates. How long into practice before you had autonomy over cases (e.g., going to court on your own, filing briefs without oversight, etc.)? Most people I know at smaller firms seem to be busier and get way more experience than big law associates because nobody has much time for oversight. One buddy at a small firm said it’s hilarious how he will be running a case on his own against like 5 people at a big law firm and still win.

Serious question: how difficult is it to get straight up fired from big 4? Outside the layoffs last year, I have personally never seen anyone let go for any reason. There's always some PIP or transferring projects or some long review process that never goes anywhere. Anyone have any insight or stories? Just looking for some perspective.

Have to join Infosys as H1 transfer is already done and I already resigned from TCS by the time PwC offer was finalized. Once PwC H1 transfer is done then should I leave Infosys within 2-3 months after joining or should I continue with Infosys and decline PwC offer?
