PwC people. Got an email for minimum utilization required for tier 1 or 2 bonus. What is this?!
I totally low-balled myself when recruiter asked for compensation expectations. What is the best way to get around this and ask for more later on when they extend offer? Gosh that was stupid..

I got laid off very recently. The workload ran dry many months ago and have asked for more work constantly. I’d either get something that’d last a day or two or nothing. When I was in my final meeting, the Partner who hired me (He’s a tax/HR partner) said that besides the really light workload, I made some mistakes on entries. No one had ever given me feedback on anything so I’m not sure how that came up. My manager was very uninvolved during my time there and was just very hands off. Thoughts?
Snap plans to lay off 20% of us, and now they're announcing 80% RTO. Is this a ploy to get people to quit so they don’t have to pay severance?

Question for anyone who was laid off but found a new job:
If you request unemployment between the offer and starting, do you not receive the benefit? Worried about stating I've received an offer and that I'm no longer looking, though my new employer is the one having me wait a few weeks.
Are there any tell tale signs that you might be getting fired? I'm getting really bad vibes from everyone I work with but I don't know if it's all in my head. I had rough conversations last week about how I'm not happy in my current position and discussed how I can move to another piece of business. Now I can feel a shift in tone during conversations with my managers and I'm worried that they are just going to cut me loose 😞
Any tips for negotiating severance?

I've been offered a role at Accenture UK as a Manager (L9), and I was wondering if anyone can tell me what the maternity leave policy is. Specifically what the leave is, and if there is any qualifying period. It’s going to directly impact whether or not I take the role.
Got short video interview, then a job offer @ low end my req. range. Experience: it’s normal to travel for a 2nd interview in person. Result: I see quitting to do this as risky. I asked for more $ than my prior range & explained I prefer we meet in person to see if it’s a fit 1st. Hiring manager wants me and may push for the $ but not the in person meet. Wonder if it could cause me to start there with less trust if they think I abused my position for more $.

Weird. Found out from some confused colleagues that a partner tried to get me kicked off a project that she wanted a role on (she was denied said role). Suspect she wanted me off because she knows I know about her secret tryst with another colleague, which my colleagues don’t know about. Any recommendations on how I navigate these waters and protect myself? I just want to do my job and honestly don’t give af what she does outside office times.

Feeling really dissatisfied with a lot of my relationships. For example, recently been feeling like my friends aren’t very there for me...then my insecurities are likely heightened by reading too much into things like how messages are worded, being left on “read”, etc. Does anyone else feel like this and tips for seeing beyond the flaws in others? Kind/helpful comments only please because I’m feeling very down today.
