Somewhat of a recent hire - how hard is it to transfer into a different practice in consulting? Will I get fired for asking?
Are layoffs happening at your firm?
I’m 29, at my first serious job, and am getting fired (not laid off). Feel like an idiot, and don’t know anyone else my age who has been fired. If you’ve been fired, can you tell me about it? I’m LA based in PR & Comms.
I know everyone is talking about Deutsch’s CCO getting fired, but did Venables Bell’s CCO get fired too? It didn’t sound like it from the article, so I’m curious what’s going on since I was actually interested in working there but am unsure now. Why are all these CCOs so stupid? 🤦🏾♀️
If a former manager never fought for you or bothered to reach out when you got laid off and then creeps your LinkedIn every so often is it worth keeping them as a contact, or remove them?
Why isn’t there a public accountants union? At least even at the staff level. These layoffs were handled like a group of unchecked overlords are expected to.
Fired from big law and still unemployed 8 months out. I’m a mid level transactional associate. Is my legal career over?
If anyone deserves to have layoffs, it’s those folks in TSA - Bunch of lazy people standing around and whiling their time chatting.
Why does PwC need layoffs again if the business is doing well? Also, curious to know what are the other “business reasons” when your util and snapshots are great?
Finally got my YE! Was hoping to at least get a 3 after hearing about all the layoffs and the 4's going around. Got a 2 and I am EXTREMELY relieved! 🙌🏻🎉 Now I can really start my weekend! 😎🍾
If you are not married or without your own family, would you move back with your parents if you have been laid off? Or would you dip into savings / unemployment to keep the lights on?
OC just sent back handwritten, barely legible changes on a stipulation in blue pen which he clearly just scanned into his computer and fired off in an email. Then he has the gall to say his wording is "more clear." Is it too much to ask for typed changes in an email?
Does staying at a job too long make you less marketable? A CFO who worked at a company for over a decade and was fired because of cut backs was hired for temp work. An accounting manager of 6 years was hired for tech support. How does this happen?
Former KPMG fish, when you got severance, was it lump sum or paid out like your normal paycheck?
My mom just got laid off today...just got promoted on Friday too...why does this happen😣 all I want to do is fly home and hug my mom
These are the threads we should frame and hang in all agency lobbies instead! "Just got laid off. Just found out I’m pregnant. Someone say it’s going to be okay, because that seem..." See full post https://joinfishbowl.com/post_2r395j
So I know layoffs suck. I’ve been laid off twice in 2 years (and I’m actually pretty good at my job.) But I just want to say, that each time my next gig has netted me a 20%+ salary increase. So jokes on them! I start my new job next week, so we shall see! Good luck to all of you who are starting over! You will succeed and know your worth!
How can I improve attention to detail? C here and made three careless mistakes on excel sheets (important data) in a row today. Feeling like I’m gonna get fired
Sitting on a flight next to a young lady and an elderly woman. I’m in the middle. The elderly woman keeps asking me to do things for her like adjust her air and pick up her phone she dropped and open her water (she didn’t understand the plastic seal). I get the whole respect your elders thing but the lady is also coughing and sneezing and every time I do something for her I sanitize because I don’t want to being germs home to my fam. What would you do? I feel obligated to help but don’t want to.
Urgent ? (Time sensitive): Agency I’ve been FL @ for 7 mo. on a wk rate (contract = Temp W2 / flat wkly rate UP TO 40 hrs/per Wk) + no mention of OT ouside of that. Usually for any rare OT asks they claim their policy is to give u a “pto” day in exchange for wknd work. Tho I let this slide the one day i was asked to do this in past ... I’m pretty sure this is illegal based of FSLA no? Any hrs outside “40” are entitled to time+1/2 by law (cont’d below)
Currently considering offers from 2 big 4 firms for entry level audit opportunities. I’m a bit concerned about the burn out that everybody’s talking about in PA￼. Any advice on how to avoid it or at least minimize the effects?
I don’t want to workout anymore. I just want to eat delicious food and watch tv and grow fat. I put so much pressure on myself all the time to go to the gym. I’m not losing weight either. I wish I could be okay with this. Do any of you feel this way? How do you deal with it?
CLEAR at IAD and DCA. Is it worth signing up? Lots of international and domestic travel coming up. Thoughts fish? Thanks!!
I’ve been asked to do an accounting assessment for a role in FAAS at EY as a Senior. Anyone have any idea what sort of questions I should expect?
I was working with a racist bigot client before covid hit and tonight I'm especially glad I don't have to fly in to see his stupid face in the morning. I'm glad none of us have to go into an office after nights like tonight.
This statement made by a colleague infuriates me: “HR has the responsibility but not the authority to change disinterested leadership" Just makes me think what's the point then? Do you agree?
On the bench for the first time in a while. So happy I'm not waking up at 4:40 a.m. Good luck to the rest of you flying out tomorrow! I'm going to sit naked in my bed and build a few decks.
I've looked in the APRs and found nothing so to fishbowl I go. You work 4 days 9 hours each and take one day PTO. Do you bill 4 hours PTO to get to 40 for the week? Or 8 hours PTO since full day?
Interviewed for Deloitte Tech Strategy SC and got a verbal offer for Consultant instead. I negotiated the offer to 120K salary and 10K signing bonus. I’m a boomerang with 4 years ERP consulting but this past year I’ve been doing DEI Consulting. Spoke with former colleagues who rejoined Deloitte and got much higher offers for SC. How do I go back to the recruiter to negotiate further? I suggested that I’d probably sign but needed time to think. Now I’d like to go back and request 140k salary.
Anyone in therapy have their therapist yell at them and tell them they refuse to coddle them anymore and are sick of them? 😐🤐
