Are HH layoffs this week?
Attention Woke White People: Don’t be this woke white person. Laid off in April. Asked my ACD for final comps of my work for my portfolio. She told me it hadn’t gone public but to check back.

Which BDO offices had layoffs?
I was laid off from a resource management role, working with employees approaching or on the bench, working with managers to staff projects, and support functions like report creation, scheduling, etc. Roles like this are few and many large consulting firms have frozen internal hiring.

Some people just have it all. The partner that I work with is on fast track. Became partner in late 30s (no mba). Has multiple kids and is also a talented artist.

I have one kid and I don’t seem to find any time outside of work and spending time with my kid
