Recently got laid off from PwC and started working in industry and I wish I could say I'm better off. It's still challenging and interesting work, but I miss consulting culture :(

K1: Thanks for the offer! I'm an immigrant so every time I switch jobs it comes with a whole visa switching issue and I'm just in the middle of that at my new company now. But maybe I'll post again once my situation is more stable!
ACN: I tried at Accenture with a friend's referral but I learned you don't hire people on visa. Is this true?

@OP Ok! What visa are you on? My recruiter & I are pretty close, so I can ask him in the meantime :)

Hmm haven't heard anything about VISAs...sorry, not sure why that would be the case. Just post something if you're ready to leave! What group are you in?

K1: I'm on the H1B. I don't think K was hiring when I was looking so I didn't even apply. Let me know what your recruiter says! Thank you!

Sorry you feel that way.. I went through the same recently and I actually like my non consulting job much more than consulting.

Being laid off while on H-1b is tough...glad you got something quick though. Hope you can get back to consulting and get that GC. Good luck!

OP He said they recently updated the policy, and that MC advisory no longer accepts H1B. Are your friends in a different area?

OP Ah!! Ok I asked him your question and he said that they're currently not but may accept them again early next year .. looks like they may have a quota

Aw! Sorry OP. Want a referral to KPMG?

Where'd u go? Acn is hiring!

When were you laid off? 😬😬😬😬😬😬😬😬

What industry are you working in? I'm on h1b too, so want to understand how easy it was for you to get another job?

You are right. I was previously on h-1b and Accenture declined me as well.

I'm currently in an inventory and pricing management software firm. But at PwC I was in Operations/Supply Chain.
D1: not gonna lie, it wasn't easy, but I also had just about 1 year of work exp. But there are plenty of people hiring out there. Definitely easier if you have any sort of technical background (I didn't)

P2: Yeah it's just a personal preference thing. I think my own working style just matched up better with consulting.

K1: Oh, that's odd, I know H1B folks who work there! Maybe it's just a temporary thing since the b4 climate isn't that great right now in general. Thanks for trying though, I appreciate it!

Nope, MC! Though they all got hired either earlier this year or last year.

So unfair! Sorry OP :(

All layoffs are brutal, but it seems like Deloitte and PWC take it to a whole different level. People going in expecting a promo, but instead are being laid off. That is terrible.
