Does anyone have input as to how most designers or graphic designers are doing during this pandemic? Since January 2020, I became laid off from my job working full-time and remotely for a Southwest Florida urologist that I worked for about 10 years. no it seemed I was going to get my job back around July of last year, he decided to create a partnership with an oncologist who had his own marketing team. Because of the partnership, it looks like I can only work freelance for them now.
Alvarez & Marsal How does comp work at Alvarez & Marsal? I know bonus is based on utilization / collections, but how does that really work when you're executing against a SOW with a certain amount of hours budgeted. If I'm only budgeted at 70%, how do you increase your utilization to increase your bonus.
Hello! Due to recent leadership changes, signs are pointing to a layoff for my team & me around Christmas/the new year. If you know of any companies looking for folks with HR, Talent strategy, program management, or I/O psychology backgrounds, please comment or DM me. Remote roles for professionals with 8+ years of experience are ideal. Many thanks in advance 🙂
Everyone seems to be worried about a recession, but most attorneys I speak with are actually busy. Anyone seeing otherwise?
I get there are stealth layoffs happening, but those are at the small minority of firms that were actually able to hire the last 2 years.
Cooley should have just fired that SEC lawyer. The trajectory of their downfall pretty much follows Elon calling them out on Twitter. I guess Perkins is next. https://twitter.com/elonmusk/status/1527774704018280448?lang=en
Hello everyone, I am laid off by my company.
I am looking for a job in QA-Manual with 3.6 years hands on experience in manual testing and database testing. Currently i am serving notice period and LWD is 30 November.
Thanks in advance.
Just got benched, been completely billable till now, how long until I should be worried about potential layoffs? (Even though management is “committed” to not letting people go during covid)
Ok so I've read or heard about layoffs recently from all big four except KPMG (obviously with the worst being at Deloitte and PwC and then some at EY in specific teams or sectors). Continued below:
I’m finding that a weird side effect of losing my job in this climate is ad agencies taking advantage of my weakened position. They get in touch, proactively or in response to my reaching out, and they want to hire me as they are in good shape. When I reveal I was laid off, the offer changes to freelance or maybe nothing. My work, awards, the fact that they know me and approached me in the first place should be enough. I don’t want to lie about my situation. Any ideas how to avoid this?
How do you tow the fine line between sticking up for yourself and not talking back to a partner? For context, our firm has seemingly started making a paper trail for layoffs and I disagree with some of the emails that I have received. I want to respond in a way that covers my own ass. However, I don’t want to piss anyone off, especially if I have read the situation incorrectly.
I was affected by layoffs about a month ago and urgently looking for a good immigration lawyer. The lawyer should be experienced in handling this 60 day grace period situation and developing alternate strategies - such as change of status to B1/B2 or applying to jobs from India. There is a lot of noise and wrong information going in the market so looking for good recommendations.
I have very little time left for my grace period to end and need a consultation soon. Thanks
Biglaw transactional associate - only at 81% utilization on the year. Feeling like a failure. Just need some extra motivation.
Just saw my engagement partner at the golf course. Sigh I’m probably getting fired now.
Looking for some insight. I recently got laid off from a growing start up. I loved the culture, the product, & they actually promote their people. I’ve been an BDR for a year at my previous company & then only a month at this one. My goal is to become an AE but now I’m wondering if that’s what I want. Ive been in tech in the Bay Area for 2+ years with previous experience in data management. Thinking of rebranding & getting into partner marketing or anything to get me to 6 figures. Thoughts?
Recently laid off, and struggling to land interviews. Anyone have tips or tricks on how to get an independent consultant role?
Hi fishes.. i have joined ey gds in august.

1 year out of school w/ 6 months of experience doing contract work as an ERP consultant , currently working with a strategy firm (6 months ) ... liked the technical stuff way more . But both are startups and feeling discouraged because I can’t seem to land an interview anywhere in the industry for any type of entry level consulting roles . Got an offer from big firm but blew it because clearance process took too long . Should I give up and switch industries ? No idea what to do ...
Thoughts on the federal government’s direct hiring authority? I think it’s counterproductive and potentially unethical. There is often little vision or actual critical need behind using this authority other than quick and easy hiring, and in my opinion, unnecessarily increasing the size of the federal workforce.
Any military spouses here? My partner is stationed in Okinawa Japan and I would like to find a job that would let me work remotely or relocate there maybe as a contractor. What company would provide the most location mobility?

I interviewed with a federal agency last Tuesday. Interview was with the director of the office and was told it was a “non competitive” process which I understand means the director can hire without additional ranking, etc. I think the interview went well and I sent a follow up thank you same day. I haven’t heard anything since. Any idea on how long the process takes and whether I’d hear one way or another? TIA

Fed Fish, trying to settle an argument. From what you've observed, what is the most in-demand non-IT certification in the Fed space? Thanks.
No. You will need to be fully cleared or will start the process all over again.
What do you do in GPS that has your utilization so low?
False. I did it. 14 months into my investigation I moved to another company. The other company just opens their own investigation with a sponsor and when you leave the first company the two cases are merged into one and keep going. It’s not that deep.
But don't have my interim yet, is there anyway to get another company to take over my clearance process?
YES! I did it. 14 months into my investigation I had another company take over.
Where did they announce the would start doing lay offs???
I'm a Staff II
Fed stuff should be picking up as EY tries to get a slice of the stimulus administration bonanza. If your util is low now, there should be opportunities to get that pumped up. Are you on the bench now?
No I'm staffed but my project ends on the end of May, there is a possibility it gets extended but 🤷, I'm just taking precautions just in case.
OP you can move to another project. You'll be fine.
Just, talk to your counselor about everything (except you applying to other places)
