A certain agency has a no layoff policy but it is very typical of them to fabricate PIPs to mask layoffs. Like seriously a dozen people from the same department really deserves a PIP?

I'd get a lawyer if this is a pattern, because termination for cause (failure to improve per the PIP) will leave you unentitled to UI.

I mentioned 'if it's a pattern' because if this is the way the company does things and you have other people to back up the claim, there's grounds for class action. If it's just you, that's tough to prove.

Interesting.... like how short?

Are the goals achievable in that time frame. If not, maybe tell them you want a lawyer to look at it before next steps.

If you can prove it - scorched earth.

Help me out, everyone seems to be having much milder symptoms with Omicron.

Job transition question: I recently accepted an offer for a new role with Merrill Lynch, the following day I was fired from my previous employer. I haven’t filled out the updated work history background check info yet. The reason for termination was due to performance expectations not being met. Should I reach out to my new employer and let them know that I’ve been terminated? Should I just put the termination update on the background check form and leave it at that? Wondering what I should do.

I’ve been tracking the recent tech layoffs. It’s hard too see so many talented people be affected. Has anyone seen data around the type of roles being most affected? It looks like Marketing Ops roles have been largely spared from the layoffs. What is everyone else seeing and experiencing out there? Marketing Ops has always felt relatively safe because most teams run lean anyway, but we’re living in strange times.

Anyone here familiar with the hiring process of KPMG consulting in Van? Had a partner interview on Nov 21, thought the feedback was positive but haven't heard back yet (no rejection/offer). Is it something normal or the interview just didn't go as well as I thought?

It's an experienced hire for an SC role. I saw the posting is still open atm, and my guess is that the recruiting team is comparing candidates since competition is higher due to recent layoffs.

Thanks in advance!

Do you give a recruiter from an agency a third chance? One flat out ghosted me last time and before that she canceled on me due to a conflict at the last minute. I know recruiters are busy and have a lot on their plate, but as job seekers who are also working, it’s a lot to stop our day for an interview. I haven’t had too much luck with recruiters referring me to jobs. I’d rather do that myself. What would be a polite way to decline a third chance?
