I don't even think I'm "low" but am worried

I am as well. Been on the bench and project pipeline is slim. Wonder if they’ll trim SMs first or what, since they directly drive revenue the most.

Hi everyone, I need some big sister advice if anyone can help. I feel really lost in my career. I was doing decently in my career until 2020 when I got laid off. I was consulting independently for a bit after layoff and then ended up getting a job in the non-profit space 1.5 years ago. The thing is after I got laid off I’ve lost all my excitement. I don’t feel motivated to do anything. I’m not low performing at my job in any way but I also don’t care for it. I’ve been stuck on the same salary of

Have you ever negotiated a severance? Company ended my employment and wants me to sign a mutual non-disparagement, waive suing them, etc. but they didn't offer me any money. They are fully in the wrong, it's a disability related issue. My options are 1. Sign 2. Refuse to sign 3. Try to negotiate. 4. Sue them (contingent on attorney taking the case). I'd prefer to negotiate, but not sure that's realistic.

recently promoted to senior analyst into a new group (internal transfer). Been in the role for 2 months, and everytime I make a mistake I always get anxious that I'm going to be fired. Most of my (few to begin with) mistakes are minor, and its a pretty different role from what i was doing before tbh... anyone have any advice for this anxiety? in general how bad do u have to be to get fired, and how many chances do you get lol. is it possible one mistake sends u home if its big enough?

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?
