Coached out is my favorite. It is so ridiculous. Let's just use real talk... you are being let go for X reason(s).

I thought “coached out” was the terminology used to refer to a senior manager who wasn’t going to become a partner. They aren’t necessarily gonna fire you but help you slowly transition to something else. As for these current reductions, that’s just getting laid off/fired. Not the same thing.

We use "coached out" for basically all terminations. It's like we are scared to call it being laid off, fired, etc.

Shift in employment paradigm

For me the difference is the timeline. The layoffs at Crowe vs. allowing the individual time to find something else.

It's called coached out because the person wasn't actually fired. The firm made someone's coach/RL/RP tell em "hey here's a few weeks unassigned. You should probably go find a job or our next meeting will include HR"

Haven't seen it in person but now that you described it in detail, I would call that coached out haha. Talk about keeping dead weight Yeah probably none of that in this economy

If she says no, is she still eligible for her severance since she already signed her paperwork?

Genuine question: why do people bill over 2100 in this market? I can see how wanting to be a “good associate” could get you to agree to go slightly above your hours requirement, but don’t understand how people end up billing 2500+ hours… do you really think you’d get fired if you said no to more work? Is someone legitimately forcing you to work that much? Don’t see how extra bonuses are worth it either.

Currently onboarding to a new role, at a global bank, and they are asking for a termination letter from a previous consulting employer from 2 years ago.

However I do not have any letter stating why I was let go. I have been requesting a letter for over 2 weeks from the employer but they’re not answering. Do I have to provide this ?
