There’s a difference between being laid off and being fired. The first is driven by business or strategic decisions, eg we are exiting this service or we are significantly under plan and don’t anticipate it to pick up. The second is that specific individual being fired due to performance and non-compliance with policies or HR issues.

Ageism is also a factor as we all know. Replacing high comp with few low comp employees (early talent etc.). Was the colleague given any reason?

like

Layoffs are almost never about performance Most HR organizations try to be as vague as possible as any provided reason can be debated and could be the subject of a lawsuit

Also many consulting companies(like other companies) are downsizing in anticipation of a recession / downturn which in itself may cause a downturn

Hi Everyone, Received an offer letter with Wipro & Capgemini at mid senior level Wipro -16 LPA vs CG -12 LPA Does Wipro has too many support project? Which one would you recommend?

Currently part of knowledge team working on M&A related projects within MBB (coming from Big Four consulting). Feel like the job description didn't actually match the role, doing mostly research-related tasks and have 0 client interation. Just received an offer for Accenture strat (M&A) group, with sizeable TC increase. Is the change worth it: client interaction + travel + involved fully in project?or is the "downgrade" to accenture too large to outway the benefits. Headhunters love MBB.

Tech company lay offs….are they soon to be inevitable?! There is lots of companies really taking a hit in the tech space. Is this something that people are nervous about? Many seem to still be having a hiring push but with the button falling (IMO this is still just start we have a long way to go to bottom out) will that halt and layoffs ensue? And if so, which depts do you think will get hit the hardest? Anyone have insight to what the plan is at UpStart for example?
