Firms traditionally don't exclusively hire based on project needs. Also, some service lines lag behind others. So all of these posts about these firm wide layoffs, look at how your service line/market offering is doing. It's really that simple in my opinion. Also D2 - who was your snide remark directed to?

Has that post started trending yet?

@Deloitte we don't have these pion problems.

D4 no one in particular, just causing trouble :P
