My coworkers and I were laid off from Grant Thornton mostly due to utilization issues, although it's sad that utilizations were out of our control, should've left earlier like the rest of our peers.

No severance, in advisory, multi levels: a, sa, manager. I think it's because of lack of projects honestly, not something employees can control.

Hmm... everyone in this last round did get time. I do recall in the previous ones it was just a payout. Those seemed more abrupt.

Can you provide more information on group, level, location, or anything else? Sorry to hear that.

Tax, Southeast, associates- manager level, 5 that I know of is pretty broad and should be fine.

Some of us have been with the firm for over 5 years, it's just kind of sad that GT is not doing more for its veterans, especially during this time.

I was laid off from Deloitte in July 2020 and went to a much smaller firm. People are nice and there are pros but the training is basically non-existent. After this past busy season, I worked more at this smaller firm than I did at Deloitte. If not happy with raise/promotion at my current job I will look elsewhere. Am I crazy for wanting to go back to big 4?

I’m burnt out from trying to drive creative solutions for my team and clients. All everyone seems to wants is simple block & tackle tactics that don’t have deeper strategic meat to them. The briefs I read are constantly off strategy and there’s honestly seems to be a lack of common sense (e.g., don’t kick off a tactic the client doesn’t know about).

It sucks even more because pharma is already highly regulated and restrictive with how creative you can be. I just feel so spent and uninspired.
