So sorry OP. You will find something amazing! That is brutal though, and I wonder has PWC thought about the taste that leaves for remaining employees. From what I know, ACN was giving 4 weeks on the beach about a month or so ago, and emailing you at the end of week two telling you that you had 2 weeks to find a role. So they were giving a heads up. I think the bench time is now up to 8 weeks for certain Operating groups (FS, Resources, etc.). We are also hiring if your still interested in consulting. I have also heard that since we are public and have shareholders to answer to, that's the only way for the firm to handle layoffs w/o too much backlash. Idk how true that is though.

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.

Hi moms - I had posted earlier about nanny not active with toddler ( toddler bottles up and melts down a lot in the evening), let baby cry etc. I had the gut feeling that she is not the right fit for us and many moms here agreed.

I plan to provide her severance for 2 weeks but I am not sure how to tell her - short and sweet
