Consulting

My manager canceled our weekly team meeting and set up a one on one call with me in 30 mins. So nervous that I might get laid off :(

Hi there, it happened. But I answered very positively. They said it definitely isn’t my performance and If things get better they would love to have me back. It’s just unfortunate because my utilization when lower this year which again wasn’t my fault. What should my next steps be?

Don’t lash out. Be understanding saying you know there is a lot going on and they are having to make tough decisions. You really like this company and you can see yourself really providing value. Say should market conditions change please consider me again as I would love to work for this company

Best of luck! Hopefully it’s not that but something else (wanting to check in on a more personal level). Keep us posted!

Are you currently billable? You’re fine. Is HR or anyone else on it? If not, you’re fine.

I was working with RPA development and I have previous experience with Workday development. I’m willing to stay with any of these technologies or make a switch. Thank you so much for all the wholesome comments.

It’s going to suck but by taking the high road you can position yourself a lot better in the long run. I’m sorry if you do get laid off. Hang in there. Things will get better

I think plenty of places are still hiring. What's your area of expertise, years of exp, highest degree, etc? Maybe folks can add recommendations for firms hiring in your area with that info

I don't work in that area so I don't know of any openings first-hand, but I'm happy to help with a system referral if you see something posted for BAH. Good luck!

This is the kind of thing I’d do, completely forgetting individual anxieties and instead focusing on optimizing for limited time. There’s obviously some context your manager has, which you don’t yet have. (Edit: I see that it’s a startup. Still, don’t worry too much — even if the news isn’t great, there will be a path forward.)

dm me if your are interested in referral. We have a technology consulting practice and the firm has some RPA work. What you are going through sucks but I’d have to say you handled this situation very gracefully. :) March on!

Good luck! Remember even if you do get laid off it means that your firm wasn’t in good shape in the first place. It hasn’t even been a month and they’re already trying for workforce reduction?

Not true KPMG1, firms are being proactive rather than reactive. Financial projections and common sense tell us about the actual outcomes to come.
