Anyone worried about layoffs? I saw a post about Deloitte laying off 5000 employees ... I know EY saying no lay off this year but what about other firms?
If you get fired from Deloitte (or similar), what would they say in a background check? Would they say “would not rehire” or something like that? Anyone have any issues with this?
Why did Deloitte’s federal practice have layoffs? Given that the clients are large government entities. I can understand it happening in commercial but federal makes no sense
Person in my advisory office got laid off. Is my EY office an anomaly, or is this happening anywhere else ? Person was on bench for last month.
I was laid off from a resource management role, working with employees approaching or on the bench, working with managers to staff projects, and support functions like report creation, scheduling, etc. Roles like this are few and many large consulting firms have frozen internal hiring. Do you think it would be beneficial to get a SHRM cert? Would that help get a "talent related" HR role? Worth the money? I have a background in recruitment as well.
If you're laid off, do they ask you to resign? If so, can you refuse and ask them to fire you instead?
I was fired today. What do I do next? I’m a third year associate at a “boutique” firm. Although I knew my performance wasn’t good and I was on thin ice, I was never given any formal warning, so I was caught off guard when they called me and just fired me, effective immediately. I was locked out of the email and computer system before the call was over, and I’m already off the website. I was so caught off guard I hardly remember the conversation (cont)
Been seeing posts where people are getting laid off even when staffed. What’s the rationale for that?
silly question: now we're heading into a recession, anyone has any ideas which functions would get laid off first: planning, analytics, dig or data operations?
Ladies' need some positive vibe. Laid off recently from a big 4 due to practice not having projects and also some amount of politics involved. Worked my ass of for the practice (contd.)
Can anyone help explain the clause in the stimulus bill that protects corporate workers (us) from layoffs? Can’t find it anywhere...
Part of layoffs today 😡
I was due for a promotion but then covid hit, and during the peak of layoffs/furloughs, I was given the run-around that we have agency wide promotion freezes, etc. Over the past month, a handful of people have been promoted. I know everyone's situation is different but I can't help feeling snubbed. How do I know whether they are genuinely trying to promote me and can't, versus them stringing me along for as long as possible? I dont want it to come to having to bring another offer to the table..
That’s going to leave a mark - 25k job cuts globally @ ACN https://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-8660159/Hundreds-Australian-jobs-risk-Accenture-slashes-workforce.html
Me as a new hire : *panicked I was going to be fired at any moment.* Me 4 years into this : Maybe if they fired me, it wouldn’t be that bad of a thing for my life 🤣😂.
How do you know if you’re in the hot seat/might get fired or if it’s just paranoia? I feel constantly on edge...

How many interview slots are usually provided for MBB in Canada? Is it allocated by specific school? McKinsey & Company Bain & Company Boston Consulting Group
Anyone receive an offer & negotiate a start date months down the road to take advantage of a better maternity leave policy, or any other reason? Wondering how many months is reasonable to ask for.
How is non-MBB consulting viewed in the big scale? Looking into exit opps, but people keep acting like I’m giving up gold by trying to leave, yet I feel like almost anything is better than here
