Anyone hear of any hold co layoffs yet? I’ve heard independent, but no hold co agencies.
Almost 5 years at a top 10 firm with a job offer at B4 for a 20% pay jump, is it worth taking the risk with further layoffs still being talked about? B4 will look better on my resume and the money will be nice, but I’m not sure if it’s worth the stress of a B4 lifestyle and potentially getting fired in a few months anyways.

Hey Fish, A job just called and asked me to bid a job without payment until it’s awarded (were the single bidder). I was laid off in March and haven’t produced since then, so I don’t mind doing the first bit pro bono, but my wife (also a freelancer) doesn’t think I should work for free. Opinions?

First year here as a general staff accountant. Midsize. Been asking scheduling for work but only managed to get 10 hours of billable work last week doing a couple 1040s... I also ask around yet everyone says they’re fine. It’s still considered busy season here since I’m at midsize and it feels wrong not hitting atleast 40 billable hours. It would suck if I got laid off cause of it. 🥴
Just me or is it really difficult to create circles and lasting friend groups after 30 here? Moved here in 2019 which at the point was getting my bearings, in 2020 was layoffs and lockdowns and this year was also layoffs and regaining. Eat dinner solo a lot and it sucks. But also just getting people (man/woman no difference) to say yes to casually going and getting food and various places is like pulling teeth.

My firm sent an email yesterday saying their tracking billable hours DAILY. It’s either they don’t think we’re working from home or about to have some layoffs 🤷🏼♀️
Nothing can make me care anymore. I do the bare minimum and just wait for people to notice so I can get fired… I know I can do a better job but I can’t find the motivation at all, like what I’m doing just doesn’t matter. Existential crisis?

Currently make 75k in a low cost of living area as a government employee. Big 4 tax background with 5 years experience. Currently working in regulation. I have an opportunity to move back into tax but the catch is it’s in San Francisco. Offer is 130k with a target 10% bonus and 5% pension contribution. Based on my pay and what my spouse could make in SF the pay differential would be a slight decrease based on COL. I’m not seeing a bright future in my government career due to continual budget...
