I watched a 29 yr old fire a 64 year old sales professional last week, this professional was making the number had been an overachiever for the past 6 yrs…and was fired with no severance nothing.
Hi everyone, really sorry to hear about the recent layoffs. I would be happy to refer to KPMG—please DM me if you’re interested.
My company (startup) emailed us today and told us that there will be layoffs coming… they haven’t told us details beyond that, but I’m worried about myself and my team. No question just want to vent, I can’t sleep. Feel so disheartened
Any minority lawyers in here that were blacklisted from big firms for a time gap or after layoff? How did you move forward?
I hear Grant Thornton has been doing more layoffs? We need staff (associates, seniors, managers) in forensics / disputes and investigations in SF if anyone is looking to make a move! Message me
Have you ever negotiated a severance? Company ended my employment and wants me to sign a mutual non-disparagement, waive suing them, etc. but they didn't offer me any money. They are fully in the wrong, it's a disability related issue. My options are 1. Sign 2. Refuse to sign 3. Try to negotiate. 4. Sue them (contingent on attorney taking the case). I'd prefer to negotiate, but not sure that's realistic.
Just got fired.. any opportunities out there in North America. Strategy consultant, manager level ; experience in consumer markets: I heard technology sector is hiring. Open to relocation
If you know your performance is being monitored after being reprimanded earlier in the month and the HR randomly sets up a meeting with you at the end of the month regarding a review of your performance, is that generally a good thing or a bad thing? I feel like I'm about to be fired and I'm really anxious about it. At the same time, I've kind of lost care because I've been battling depression and anxiety for a while and I've recently realized I've lost interest in the legal field altogether.
Advisory The great resignation period is getting over. Due to global macro economic conditions, we’re under recession, inflation is all time high. many companies are starting hiring freeze(some even starring soft layoffs) , be extra careful when planning to join some startups, may not be a great time. How’re hiring in your organisation?
In a tech company, where does corporate marketing usually stand in terms of layoff priority? Is it a fairly safe or risky position in a company that could see layoffs in their future?

Did BCW NY just layoff it’s EA staff?! Seeing a bunch of these names on Connect and very upset that great people were let go!
Hi ladies! Going through some personal major transitions and would love some inspiration. What is a time in your life where you went through a situation that was initially difficult (layoff, breakup, moving, etc) and you ended up using it to make yourself and/or your life even better? Anything and everything counts: found a new job with better pay or wlb, met your life partner, got into the best shape of your life, etc! Please brag!
I’ve been submitting applications because my company has been doing layoffs and pay cuts. I was informed yesterday that they will be doing additional pay cuts starting next week. First my bonus was cut by 60% and now they have mentioned they are going to cancel it altogether. When interviewing for new positions how should I explain why I’m looking for a new job even though I still (at least currently) have a job, just major pay cuts?
Getting laid off at the end of August. Trying to figure out healthcare options for my family. Is cobra going to be better than anything on the NY exchange?
I read to the kids a book that ended with a line like, "If it was a good story, start all over."I told the kids I really only did that once in my life regarding a book about a teacher going to teach in Africa. In reality it was about a missionary. I hid the name of it and what it really was about. In other instances I've also explained the meaning of life is to love sacrificialy without telling them the source. I feel guilty hiding the Truth. How do you speak the Truth without being fired?

Whats a normal dating timeline? My ex & I dated for years so I’m out of practice. I met this new guy & really like him. I’d like to see him exclusively & get to the girlfriend part (he’s expressed he wants to be exclusive but held back bc I couldn’t commit just yet). Now I think I’m ready. We see another maybe 1x per week & text every day, call maybe 1x a week for about 2 months now. Am I moving slowly, quickly, or on pace? Is there a good bowl to ask relationship q’s? Please excuse off topic.
