Cross posting from the Creatives bowl: Got laid off while facing long Covid and feeling out of options. Any advice on how to get a decent severance package?
I was laid off for the first time last wk and I feel completely empty. Does anyone have any advice? I've been talking with recruiters, trying to find connections, but it all feels hollow and hopeless.
Round of layoffs happening at 360i today. Don’t worry guys, take it as a blessing in disguise - you all deserve better than that place. ❤️
HSA - I have an HSA from former employer, laid off last year. I habitually maxed out my HSA ($3,600 this year) in March and realized I am not eligible (new/current employer doesn't offer HDHP). What do I need to do?
What's the next best tweenie clothing retailer to short stock? Wet Seal, Forever 21, etc. gets me fired up to bet on bankruptcies
Maybe I’m off base here but seems like EY kept a bunch of low performers through year end to justify keeping everyone’s pay stagnant for FY21 that will be around after these supposed layoffs, cause now they are canning a bunch of people and it’s not like things are any better now than they were in June...anyone disagree?
I am so glad that PwC has not fired the accountants for the Oscar fiasco. Good to see firms making an attempt to protect their employees despite so much media scrutiny and witch-hunting
So many new hires coming in. I just don't get it, with all the layoffs that happened a few months back and a bench so deep..
Anyone from Deloitte get laid off this week?
How many of you are still unemployed from last year lay offs? Interested to learn more about folks who were laid off and what they are doing.
Does anyone else have constant imposters syndrome? 5 years with the firm, been consistently rated 1 except in first years at new levels. Got an office transfer I requested and a team transfer I was “head hunted” for. Everyone says I’m doing great but I still wake up every morning fearing today’s the day the you’re fired hammer is going to slam down and catch up with me.
Recently laid off, and overwhelmed by all the things I have to do. How do you prioritise and how do you cope? I feel like I could be working on job-hunting all day and night but is that healthy?
If anybody is impacted by the KPMG layoffs today let me know if you want to discuss new opportunities
Just got the axe, it’s weirdly nice to be laid off via Zoom and not walk the plank to HR and have everyone see me publicly crying. Time to crack a beer for sure.
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.
Laid off a few weeks ago from AFS. Is anyone willing to refer me to a position at Deloitte GPS, Guidehouse, or Booz? Experience at AFS mainly consisted of Fed contract pricing, change management work, and digital transformation strategy.
I was fired on Friday for performance issues. I am determined to improve in the future and am taking steps to do so. Any tips for finding a new job? I’m worried I’ll be blackballed now.
For those of you who have been laid off - has your view of the multi month lockdown changed?
Worked in a project in asia last year for an asian client. Should my income be considered as foreign on my tax return? Any tax benefits associated to this?
Amazon Proserve vs. Google Gtech vs. Google Contractor How do these stack up against each other in terms of experience and opportunity? I'm looking for a new job now and haven't prepared enough to be able to pass the tier 1 type FAANG positions, but I thought it would be good to at least get FAANG on my resume.
Hi Fishes, How long it takes to get promoted to 7B from 7A. It can depend upon the performance, but usually what's the average time? And how much hike can you expect at promotion?
So I work in internal services as a manager making 195k and just realizing how stuck I am. Been interviewing for strategy jobs in industry and they all pay less in total comp… feeling stuck, suggestions?
Part of a monthly poker game of lawyers. Want to see if y’all have any suggestions for a virtual game using Zoom and a free poker app (no betting of real money online tho we can still bet IRL).
I had a first round phone interview with a hiring manager last Friday (one week ago). I felt it went well. Is it okay to email the recruiter to see if there is an update? Or is it better to just wait?
Hi All, I was approached by a recruiter to interview for a manager role at Strategy& based out of Toronto. He mentioned the base pay range for a new M will be CAD 145-155k. Can someone please share: 1: What the interview process will be like? 2: Is the base pay in line? 3: If I go through, is there a signing bonus?PwC Strategy&
I am doing UXR interviews, and although I read that a background in design isn’t necessary for UXR, I have been asked a few times now whether I have experience in design and can use design apps. I have applied research experience and a solid understanding of product development, which I think should land me a UXR role one day, but I’d to hear any thoughts though if you think design knowledge is necessary for UXR?
"How many points?" I'm new to all this. Beyond all the humor is this actually commonly done ? What's the process and way to go. Real examples please:)

Husband with great opp in DC. Calling any and all ideas to make this work for my career... solid agencies, palatable in house opps or secret magical tunnels to NYC. Help
If you’re planning to leave one big 4 for another and also switch from one service line to another, is it worth asking your current company to make the internal transfer happen instead? It’s something I just recently started looking into and I didn’t mention a word of it on my annual review just recently. It would 100% come out of left field and I almost feel like they would at a minimum want me to do another busy season in audit before making it happen. Almost feel like a clean break is easier.
What does Product Management in the Professional Services practice of a large SaaS company do? Sounded like identifying client professional services needs and developing a service offering for that need; but in my experience most professional service offerings are reactionary, i.e. responding to RFPs. This sounds like creating a service and trying to aggressively sell it to clients that aren’t asking for the service.
