Has anyone survived a large round of layoffs at their company? Very curious about how you navigated that brave new world.
Comey just got fired 👀

How is the work culture in Cognizant right now . Is it a good choice to join Cognizant. What's the scope of oracle apps dba in Cognizant.
I’ve joined the league of Covid layoffs. I was in an Art Director role with an experiential agency. I’d love to move into a more strategy focused role next — any advice on how best to pivot?
Whole family was laid off work so I’m the only one working right now. Really demoralizing. Crazy times
do u think u can get fired from work for being too quiet as a new hire? sometimes my teammates are surprised that I still exist...
My brother is a mechanic with 10+ years experience but was laid off due to COVID. He's having a hard time even finding jobs to apply for and asked me for advice. I don't even know what someone can do without a degree. He has valuable hard skills but I just don't think there's a demand in NYC right now. Should I advise him to go to school? He'd have to fully finance his degree and I'm just not sure if it's worth it for him to start over at the bottom, or what industry he'd even fit in...
CRT discussion over. Pretty much met my expectations of shitty raise and bonus. Glad I didn't get fired so at least I can look for jobs while still getting paid.
Where would you look into going after being laid off? Does anyone know any good startups hiring in the Northeast?

Shadow fired from v25 firm job today (2nd year associate/Class of 2019) - given 3 months to find a new job. Somewhat blindsided, but firm seems supportive in helping me catch on somewhere. Had my struggles, but feel like I can still cut in big law if I'm given another opportunity. Any advice/words of encouragement would be welcomed.

Looking for advice/opinions on severance. What kind of severance should be expected at a senior (SVP) level with 10+ years at an agency?
Worst interview stories? Had one so appalling today that I can only laugh. The vibe died the moment we locked eyes. Relief is knowing that we never have to see each other again on this sweet earth.
The guy I have been dating for 6 months told me recently he loves me and caught me on Grindr today (he made a fake profile and bated me). All this time I was checking grindr to see if I like someone else, but never slept with anyone. It’s been only a year that I realized I want to date men and I think am in my exploration phase, not out yet. Today he broke up with me and I couldn’t handle it, we both cried and I told him I love him too. I don’t know how to figure this all out, and it hurts
Question for folks that have worked at a time before IMs and phones - how were meetings back then without the parallel conversations on top of the main conversation? What I mean is the typical situation with the clients texting each other on their phones or IMing while the consultant speaks or we communicating within our team on chat to course-correct while we "read" the room?
I am dying to work at Microsoft as a CSAM in the Dallas market and keep getting passed up even with quality internal referrals. I am more than qualified to take on this role with 6 yrs at another major tech company. I have now been trying for a year. Any and all comments are appreciated!
I land in Brussels for a day trip on Thursday. Company in Frankfurt wants to do a video interview that day. Any recommendations on places I could take the call? I've considered booking Regus space but I don't know what the situation is right now in Belgium and what other options might be available.
I received an amount yesterday from my last organization TCS which is almost half of the actual amount I calculated, I am eligible for gratuity also as I server 5.5 yrs, so any guesses when I am gonna get the rest of the amount, I am not even sure that this amount is leave encashment including some last days salary or not.
Is it too late to start over? I’ve been 3.5 years in PA and a CPA. I’m considering to pivot away from tax to software engineering. I feel miserable in tax and want to quit everyday.
How is Gartner to work for in an executive managing partner role? What is the typical compensation in that position?
I've seen various threads where people (some big 4?) have referred to their companies' pensions. Can someone explain this to me? Why would anyone in this day and age offer pensions (versus 401k etc)?
I asked this in another bowl, but this might be a better place. What are your thoughts on buying a luxury watch at online dealers like Jomashop or Watchmaxx?

Hi. I’m new to Fishbowl, and to this particular bowl as well. If you are out to your students, how did they take your coming out? How did it go over with parents? This question is especially directed to those in “red states”.
Would you choose Bain or BCG if you had both offers and planned on staying in consulting for a while?
New to Fishbowl?
