OP if you are a senior director do you know when this will end? I either need to sign my lease or jump ship.


No wonder everyone is working this weekend.

Op when did the 8 person layoff happen?

Started 2-3 weeks ago, it's been staggered

Is his commercial or PS

It's commercial. Risk is under FS.

I don’t belong in my job. I didn’t mind it when I joined in January and was interacting but as we’ve been work from home longer, the less motivation I have. I don’t enjoy the work but I’ve gotten unlucky with my teams too, and can’t remember the last time my manager praised me without a critique. Maybe I’m just bad at my job. At this point I just am doing the bare minimum to not get fired. What do I do? Should I look for a job that I actually would enjoy doing or stick it out?

Just got laid off. Came out of nowhere. Now back to the hunt. Any CW roles in NY?

Everyday I wake up with motivation that when I start to try and work immediately goes away. I cannot focus on any work and tell myself everyday that tomorrow/next week I will try. Anxious to be fired, but rated successfully at work (when I do i am fast and efficient). Started a new job this year and was remotivated but have since gone back to old ways. I can’t make myself do work - whatever that work may be. Has anyone experienced this?

I have a pending I-485 and my case was recently “ready to be scheduled for an interview” about 2 weeks ago. I haven’t traveled to my home country for 3 years and was looking forward to going this December … I have a valid H1b that expires in 2023 and would need to get it stamped. There are appts available in my home country. However I don’t have AP (did not apply due to valid H1b). Is there any risk to my GC application if I travel abroad and get a H1b stamp to re-enter the US?


Current senior graduating in December 21. Go to a complete non-target but have multiple experiences at well known companies/banks on my resume.

Our school instituted a district wide 50% floor/grading policy. If you give a student an assignment and they do nothing, not even write their name, or turn in a blank sheet of paper, they get a 50%. If they score less than 50% on a quiz or test, we have to mark it up to a 50%. This is the new norm and is causing kids to not do work, or just the bare minimum. It has taken the joy out of teaching and has taken away the accountability of students. Anyone else facing this? What do you do?


So PWC has posted it's 1st COVID case in NY..any other firms following suit?
