Which group are you in OP? I'm on west coast in digital and local projects here are dry.

East coast MC! Nada here as well.

Don't want to say too much about my group but OP I agree. Did not get this email yet so maybe they are just trying to get data. I think all firms are going to have at least some layoffs. The business model is hard to predict.

I haven't been paying much attention to what's going and the only "regional model" I've heard of has been on FB. Is this for all groups or just consulting? Will consulting still be a group? I'm also in digital on the west coast, and staffed on a long term east coast project. I feel that project needs will still dictate who goes where, and it'll still be business as usual. But please someone correct me if I'm wrong.

I'm interesting in hearing more. I think it could be great to shift to more of a regional focus. Makes sense

Pros: ?

Cons:
- culture deck is something else: if they think they can do better than you, they will just let you go

- they think they’re the Yankees: if you’re batting.385, but they think there is someone out there who can bat .400, you’re going to get fired

- they will openly discuss at a meeting why you suck

- Reed Hastings' leadership style was once described as being "unencumbered by emotion". A VP once told him he's not a good listener and tends to be unempathetic.

I left Audit at a midsize firm to join KPMG erp implementation consulting about 6 months ago.

Spoke to a lot of others who have left and seems like being pigeonholed or staffed on projects not related to the actual core work of the practice is the common reason. I've been on the fence about whether I should stay and hope to be staffed on better projects in the future or leave soon...
