Any wagers # of layoffs at end of FY?
What other firms are experiencing FS layoffs? Sounds like majority PwC based on previous posts.
How are people "networking" now that we are wfh? I mean, you are barely even aware if people still work in the same company. Previously, you at least saw them every now and then at the office but now... They could have fired half the company and I wouldn't know
Is it okay to look for a new job when pregnant? These layoffs don’t look so great at Deloitte.
What are the details around the Deloitte layoffs? Any particular methodology to letting people go?
My wife was informed a few weeks ago that she would be laid off as of end of year. She signed the paperwork and will be receiving a decent severance due to her tenure there. Now the company is saying they may have some other work for her to do for a few months and they could extend her contract if interested. If she says no, is she still eligible for her severance since she already signed her paperwork?
Are your consulting firms having a shortage of projects/studies? (Y/N) Has utilization rate dropped drastically? (Y/N) % of consultants on beach/bench? (%) Should we anticipate widespread CTL/layoffs? (Y/N) Which firm are you from? (xxx)
So Uber layoffs have started. Uber subsidiary Careem to let go 31% of it’s staff. Sad state of affairs... https://blog.careem.com/en/securing-careem-through-these-uncertain-times/
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.
Thoughts on Riveron? My SO is interviewing there but heard they did a substantial furlough/layoff earlier this year. Seems like things might be better since they just announced a new acquisition in the past week?
Such low utilization at the firm I'm just over one calendar year now since start date. Is the bench at Deloitte for IM pretty big or am I the only one? About to get fired..
Got laid off a week ago and have been slow to get back on the hunt. I feel so demoralized and depressed. This is the worst season to be unemployed. I can’t seem to get a fire in myself again
Lay-offs! Which firms are doing them? Accenture Strategy had big layoffs in 2016 but were doing well as of 2018. How about your respective firms?
In my first year as an audit associate I got rated bottom bucket in every category. I think this traumatized me. I have since jumped firms and constantly get great reviews. Even got a mid year promotion one year. But I can’t help but think I’m on the verge of being fired.
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. I provided the background check company proof that I was eligible for unemployment since I did not get fired; it was due to performance, too technical for me. 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 ?

As a tax manager how do you stop feeling like a factory worker on the line churning out tax returns? I’m outgoing and do not like being in the weeds…stayed in public accounting thinking making manager would get me to more of a sales/client relationship position but nothing changed since I was the main client contact as a senior and now have no one to delegate to.
Any idea what aspects of a case interview results in a reject? I recently interviewed with a Big 4 Life-sciences strategy team and I am kinda not happy with my performance. 😒 I just want to assess my chances. My mind is occupied thinking of what I could have done better😑
I am in public accounting and I got pulled into the Audit department to help out. I didn't have much of an option because there was no project available and I needed to get billable hours (I am under Acct and Fince Consulting). The problem now is I've completed my work and I am still not billing as I had hoped. I was informed there's plenty of work, but not seeing it. Am I missing something here? I haven't been informed I am not doing my job properly.
