Seems to be a lot of advertising folks on here. Are any layoffs happening there? Good friend in media planning. Is that safe right now?
In the midst of all these layoffs, I'd just like to point out that I've worked for FCB Health for 15 years (now at Area 23 for last 6 years) and in my time here, there has not been a single layoff.
Question for the more seasoned consultants, these layoffs and overall downturn in our industry, is it an annual cycle? Or is this abnormally bad
How can I earn a bazillion babillion dollars so I can FIRE and not have to worry about working? Older friend got laid off. Contd...
First year associate here - really freaked out by FS layoffs and think I might be next. How am I supposed to find another job after 6 months?
Had a dream where I was in an alternate reality. Everyone hated me, I had been fired from Deloitte for incompetence, and I was somehow part-owner of an Arena Football team. What the hell does that mean
What is the EY severance package ?
Layoffs yesterday 😭 We had a brutal round of layoffs before break too and we all thought we were safe for a while. I still have my job but the survivor’s guilt is real.
Comey just got fired 👀
90% sure I’m about to be fired for sexual harassment (more detail in comments). Should I resign before I’m fired?
Layoffs are coming
Getting Laid 👍 > Getting Off 👍 > Getting Laid Off 👎
Clients spent 20 minutes during the middle of a meeting to shit on BCG for getting them laid off from their previous jobs. How's it feel to be the Bobs?
Has anyone been fired in their first year in PA? What did you do afterwards to be successful?
Hey, what’s working at Grey like these days? Going strong? Layoffs? Killing it creatively? Shark Tank?
I don't understand the concept of receiving a 4 on Year End (and getting laid off). There is no set percentage to give people 4's and 5's right? How does one mess up that badly?
IPG folks: have any of you switched to a different agency within the network? Were you able to "bring" your benefits with you to the new agency? Things like 401(k) matching, vacation days, etc?
From talking to students at multiple M7 schools, it seems like all of the BB/MBB/FAANG companies recruit at most if not all of the schools . So if you're planning on recruiting for one of these, is there really a major difference in career opportunities between each school? Asking because it seems like some schools are specifically known for finance vs consulting vs tech, but if the companies are all recruiting at all these schools, the differences don't seem as pronounced to me.
How is PTO valued? (Salary / 365) x PTO days? Or, (Salary / 2080) x PTO hours. My question is whether or not to factor in weekends. Deloitte
Told recruiter that my min salary expectation is $185k. As I’ve gotten to know more about the job, I’m less keen about it and need more $$ assurance. How do I handle this without pissing them off. Thx
Let's talk about Christmas bonuses: Should you be penalized for leaving your firm in your bonus if you've generated significant amounts for the firm? Is that common practice? Disgruntled associate. 😂
People have been poo pooing going to Hawaii due to lack of reservations for activities and poor service due to understaffing. I have a Maui trip planned in Sept and I'm thinking about putting it off. Is it that bad? I'm staying at the Ritz.
Have a side project that is doing well, looking to raise some money. How much should I give for seed funding?
How do you all calm yourself down and mentally prepare for the week? Bad case of Sunday scaries knowing my colleague is going on vacation this week and I’m gonna have to balance a lot of work
If I was going to make a transition to another firm (possibly Tier 2 or Big 4), when would be an appropriate time to do so? I have about 9 months of experience with IBM thus far. Wait 2 years? Less?
Average salary for a manager at KPMG in NYC ?
How do I retire at 45? Give me all your tips.
Sick for the first time in 2 years because I spent time with extended family and their kids. What is it about kids constantly being sick?? I spend 2 days around toddlers and my immune system takes a vacation.
New EM and just learned a great lesson about how even if my team’s and my work is 100% right, but leadership doesn’t feel in touch with it or clued in on development, it won’t get too far.
I’m all about that work from home life. However it is insulting and unprofessional when a colleague who is in the office blows off a scheduled meeting with you when you are virtual as they bumped into another colleague in the office. Anyone else noticing issues like this now that we are in this hybrid mode. How do you address it?
How safe is Houston downtown for a female staying alone with a young kid for a few months? Being very close to the office and daycare, and availability of public transport (doesn't drive) are reason for preffering downtown. However, have been reading about the recent crime surge there. If someone is generally back home by 8 PM or earlier, and will probably take Uber locally, is it still risky. Also welcome any good apartment suggestions. Thanks
