Seeing all these Deloitte "tellyourstory" posts on LinkedIn and no one is telling their story about the forced pay cuts or unnecessary layoffs.
Does anyone knows if an associate's well-being would be taking seriously? As we are all working remotely, I'm not getting sufficient support but when this was presented to my PEL - its basically my manager's word against mine... am going to get laid off soon
How is EY tax team for test engineer. Is there too much work pressure and is it safe to join considering the layoffs in IT
Any creatives in San Fran? How do you survive the cost of living? Hell, NY for that matter too? What kind of world is this when you’re pulling 100K and up and you’re a layoff away from being homeless?
GroupM said we were under hiring freeze, no raises/promotions, stopped 401k matching, senior pay cuts, went through a round of layoffs last week, and yet:
Will a unionized advertising industry discourage toxic cultures? I always thought unions made it harder for the “bad apples” to get fired due to union protection.
Been hired & then fired from 2 different sales jobs the past 2 months after getting furloughed from my job in April due to Covid. Is now a good time to get into SAAS sales? Trying to find some stability in sales - doubting if this is still the career path I want to go down. Anyone have any advice or been in a similars situation? Feeling kind’ve lost
Ethical Poll: Would you sign a petition to take a 50% pay cut for 4 months to ensure no COVID related layoffs happen at your firm? Answer in the comments below.
Has anyone actually been fired for not returning to the office? Do Havas and DDB people think that will happen?
So I was laid off, it came as a pretty big shock but the worst part was the way they did it. I have been laid off a couple of times before and have always had time to say my goodbyes and in the other 2 cases found new jobs before my last day. This felt more like a firing, a hr rep showed up to my one on one with my boss and said your being laid off effective immediately. I know this is how they handled it in the past as well but it really sucks. Anyone else have this experience?
Edelman lays off 5% of staff domestically. 50% of data and analytics team laid off in NY. Clearly decision makers understand the industry and what’s valuable (intuition > data)
4 out of the Big 5 banks have announced cost cutting measures / layoffs recently. Will this have any implication on their consulting budgets as well?
TLDR: junior associates just don’t get it. When I was a junior associate I couldn’t imagine telling a senior associate on the day an assignment was due that I had other more urgent deadlines and I couldn’t get to their assignment. Are you kidding me? When we’re you going to communicate this? Am I supposed to just pick up the slack here and do your work for you? Our client deadline hasn’t changed. Was it just going to magically get done? WTF
Anyone ever been unexpectedly laid off? As in completely blindsided, was not ready at all for it? How did you bounce back?
OK gonna maybe open a can of worms here but I have to ask: it seems the sudden inflation we're seeing has taken the ins. ind. by surprise. The cost/expense projections done X yrs. ago for this and poss'y subsequent yrs. have been thrown off. Costs to repair/replace cars have shot up unexpectedly. Same for houses. Med costs have all gone up. Ins. cos. have relatively thin profit margins to begin with. There's talk of cost-cutting measures-- incl. layoffs. How realistic are these concerns?
How will be client interview in Publicis Sapient? I heard it will be very difficult and we will be fired if we don't clear client interviews after 3 attempts. Is it true? Tech Stack: Java, Spring Boot, Microservices YOE:4.5

About to run my first call after getting back from vacation this week and feeling so rusty with my words! Eek wish me luck!
Is there a difference between 250k salary and 400k salary? Both salaries are watching spiderman on opening night. Both salaries have food on the table and a roof over their heads. One has a 65in tv vs the other has 75in. One drives a BMW the other a Tesla. I make around 250k and to increase my salary I will have to work a lot more. Is it really worth having more money, at some point it is just a number and quality of life doesn't improve. In fact it could be worse with the extra hours.
Was your wife supportive of your travel schedule once you had kids? My wife doesn’t want me to work in consulting once we start having kids in a few years.
Who is feeling the show "All American" right now? It's about football, not politics btw. Season 2 is great!
Applied to a Microsoft role and recruiter asked this below 👇. What’s a good response, I left because I was poached and Money was good. Hate it here now though.
