Recently laid off from KPMG audit after 3 years. I’m on an H1B so odds are tough. If anyone could help me with a referral to a transaction services/restructuring role at another services firm or middle market bank, would be grateful. I know it’s a long shot but thought it’s worth posting.
I was laid off from a resource management role, working with employees approaching or on the bench, working with managers to staff projects, and support functions like report creation, scheduling, etc. Roles like this are few and many large consulting firms have frozen internal hiring. Do you think it would be beneficial to get a SHRM cert? Would that help get a "talent related" HR role? Worth the money? I have a background in recruitment as well.
Just got pulled off my main project and don't have any project scheduled yet.... Feel like I will be fired :(
What do you think will be the impact of this rapid hiring for MBB? MBB is hiring so rapidly. When it cools down, do you think MBB will realize they over hired? Will it become harder for associates (post MBA) to get promoted? Will it become more competitive for Associates to get staffed on projects they want to be on? Will there just be too many consultants at the Firm and a mass layoff? McKinsey & Company Bain & Company Boston Consulting Group

Heard that you are not likely to get laid off for being unstaffed if you got promoted in the last performance cycle, anyone know if that's true?
Survived the layoffs on friday-but still shook up from seeing a bunch of my friends get walked out all around me. When a layoff happens should I be updating my resume/looking to get off the ship?

I’m at 71k now at 1 YOE. Is there any good reason to take a pay cut for a new job? (Assuming I don’t get laid off or fired and have to scramble for cash)
I believe "Qualified Immunity" regulations be extended to Teachers and Coaches, like the cops have. We both police less and demand less from the public as it erodes. Should this be fought for by our unions/legislatures?
Fired without severance...haven’t signed anything yet. Is severance something that can be negotiated with HR? I have a call with them on Monday to discuss.
Does anyone else feel like their burn-out cycle is shorter? It used to take me about 2 years of grind before I hit a burn-out phase where I needed to do some serious recuperating. It feels like I'm at 3 months now, or even less. I've already spoken to my wife about building quarterly mini-vacations into my schedule just to keep my energy up. And by burn-out, I mean you're at the point that every single ball you are juggling can drop and you get fired and almost see that as a blessing.
Hi ladies - I’m 29, my husband & I are planning to start TTC in a few months. I’ve been diagnosed by pcos when I was 17 and I’ve been on birth control ever since due to irregular periods. I’m nervous that it’ll be difficult to conceive without hormones/meds but I have no clue. Wondering if anyone’s had a similar situation or has an insights on getting pregnant with irregular periods or pcos? How long in advance did you quit birth control?

Anyone see a registered dietician without having a very pressing health issue (as in, stomach issues or obese)? I just lack the willpower and focus to really effectively control my eating, I’d love to have someone to hold me accountable and help identify specific triggers I have personally to lose like 15-20 pounds. How did you go about finding one?

How does it make sense that the children are going to school while most adults here have not started going back to work yet? If it’s COVID related still, it’s not consistent.
