I was laid off from my firm and got picked up by an investment bank to work in their regulatory group. I wanted to be a litgator all my legal career but I can't turn down a good job. Any advice?
Constantly worried I’m going to get fired because I don’t know where I stand at my mid sized law firm (second year associate).
Not sure whether this was shared before. What are the other consulting companies with Covid related layoffs? https://www.bloomberg.com/news/articles/2020-05-29/deloitte-consulting-ceo-warns-of-about-2-500-job-cuts
Was looking into roles at West Monroe/WMP but heard they recently had layoffs. Anyone have perspective they can share?
The LA advertising market just got more intense after all these layoffs at 72. It’s already hard to get a new good gig in LA especially with every New Yorker, Brazilian, and Londoner moving here 😭
Return to PA after hiatus? I left the firm for a cushion job last year. Sadly layoffs imminent due to company performance. I have head start to apply for new jobs. Worth trying to return with no CPA?
Why all the layoffs at Deloitte? Every other post in my LinkedIn is of a twice removed colleague having been laid off. What’s driving these cuts?
I've been an engineer at Facebook for six years and am really contemplating resigning or trying to organize my fellow employees for us to make obviously needed changes specifically around disinformation. What would you do? I don’t care if I get fired.
Accenture folks! How many people get fired before promotion time due to extensive time at the bench?
What are partners hearing about the need to do furlough/layoffs? Heard of Deloitte and Accenture laid off/furloughs already within certain practice areas
Just started as an analyst and I have no idea what I’m doing. Anxious all the time that I’m just a fraud. Only me and an SM on a project and I just worry I’m going to screw everything up and get fired.
An ECD of mine fired me after I talking me out of quitting, then talked shit about me to literally the most prominent headhunter in advertising. This was 20 years ago. Now he wants to be friends on Facebook. WWYD?
Incredibly tone-deaf: the same day layoffs happen at Weber Shandwick and Golin, the head of a sister IPG PR agency posts about winning best place to work 🙄
I need help letting go of the anger and hate I feel towards being laid off. My insurance expires in a few days and I just got sick in a way that will require multiple follow up appointments. CONT..
Those who have been in consulting for 15-20+ years, what are some big changes/layoffs you have witnessed and how you survived the cuts and changes? Thank you
Over the last few months I’ve seen a lot of staff/seniors quit and move to other jobs. Is this normal for this time? I feel like everyone I know is worried about not being laid off but here I see people dropping like flies. What’s going on? Side note if you are in audit and need a job contact me. 😂

We have been looking to adopt a puppy for the past month or so. Have probably applied to at least 10 rescues and have not heard back, not even to reject us. I appreciate rescue groups work and I understand that a lot of people are adopting nowadays and that they are overwhelmed with applications. That being said, we are an amazing dog family:dog owners our whole lives, go to a bunch of training classes, spend a lot of money and time on our dogs and love them dearly.What can I do to hear back?

What is the salary of a Big 4 ITS tax manager (M1) in NYC? Estimate or range is fine. Just base comp.
Anyone here have ADHD or an ADHD partner? How has working from home affected you? My partner was diagnosed a few years ago and we are making slow but steady progress on him articulating how that affects his behaviour, and how things that most people consider easy can be super hard for ADHD folks. He says forced WFH makes it even harder. My workload is a lot lighter than his so I'd like to be able to do my best to support him.
People whose culture comes from Muslim majority countries are usually more family oriented. How has working in this industry affected you in that regard?

Hearing some WPP agencies are now “testing” WFH due to Coronavirus. Any updates on what IPG is going to do? They’ve been silent so far.....
We all have client horror stories. Name a 💩 brand/account you've worked on and never want to see again ☠️
Anyone with a brain knows that Trump had the CDC change how they count COVID stats because it is brutal to his campaign to say he golfed while 180,000 Americans died.
Looking for CapOne ref. Looking for a fish to take a look at my resume and guide me to a good spot at CapOne 12+ years program and project management most recently focused on tech/Dev work. Pmp/csm
Was told by higher ups to present work in a client meeting specifically because I’m a woman and they wanted to hear from a woman’s POV. My boss said he would do the set up and hand it over to me. He steamrolled the whole thing and I never even got to open my mouth. He apologized to me via slack during the meeting, but still proceeded to bogart the conversation. Should I send him a polite but firm email calling him out?
Is it generally viewed as okay/normal to use all your PTO at an analyst consultant level, can it hurt your reviews?
