Fired from big law and still unemployed 8 months out. I’m a mid level transactional associate. Is my legal career over?
Saturday marked 14 years since I was fired and started my own agency. Getting fired did not break me then and this pandemic is not going to break me now. Stick with it, everyone.
Don't want to do any work. Don't want to quit. Don't want to get fired. How do I square this circle? 🤔🤔🤔
I have to give my notice today. How can I do graciously and respectfully? I’ve no hard feelings against the place, it’s just time for me to move on but I know I’ll leave them in a bind and I feel guilt over that. (I’ve also never left a job before, I’ve only been laid off. 😳)
Once laid off by a specific employer, do people ever go back to work for that same employer? For example, all the people laid off from Deloitte, will they ever work for Deloitte again in the future? Assuming there were performance issues.
😡 They fired my counselee and didn't tell me. Been working on his year-end prep for no reason 😡
Do you ever wish you get fired?
To anyone laid off that has found a job, how long was your search? I have been recently laid off and feel very demotivated by the job market 😔
Early stages of considering a lateral move. Which firms did not handle the pandemic well? Probably want to avoid places that had big pay cuts or layoffs.
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?
Why does PwC's severance package suck so much? I've never been through something like this previously, no I guess I have nothing to compare it to, but everyone who has keeps telling it's insulting. SA
Can you be fired if on medical marijuana if used for medical reasons with prescription if company policy does not specify whether it's not allowed in recreational use only or simply just not allowed?
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.
Is it wrong that I like when people leave or get fired? Not like I get joy from misfortune but I love the drama and scoop
Does anyone here work for Silicon Valley Bank? They recently acquired Boston Private. I’m a candidate for a job at Boston Private. Wondering if SVB is planning layoffs in the near term at BP? Also, does anyone know the anticipated benefits to be rolled out from SVB as the parent company? Specifically interested in health insurance providers. Thanks in advance for any information! Silicon Valley Bank
I recently got laid off and decided to go freelance. First agency that reaches out to me for freelance work... the one that had just let me go 🤷🏼♀️
I feel like I’m in the twilight zone seeing all this turnover/layoffs and practitioners firm jumping
Should I mention specific client names on my CV?
Can’t believe I’m saying this...but I need to get back to office and work with people. Working at home is making me realize how much I miss the routine of the week when I had to drive or fly to work. Basically, I’m ready to travel for work. Not the same amount as Pre-Covid, but 50% 50% balance would be nice if the industry moves to this type of consulting model. Thoughts?

How do you cope when you’re overwhelmed? I’ve been working until 11pm the past two weeks minus 1 day (bc it was my birthday) and I see no end in sight. We are short a few people (quit, parental leave, etc) and only have a few associates left in my group so I am getting everything from 6 partners when I am truly only responsible for 2. I know taking time for working out/etc is helpful but I don’t have the time because I need at least 7-8 hours of sleep or I can’t function. Sigh.

I'm a non tech professional, who is working in a role that is almost of an account manager. I'm inclined towards being a PM. Please could you suggest market required skills and proficiencies
Would love some advice—I’ve spent the last 2 yrs in sr level role doing policy work I enjoy. early on I discovered I was srsly underpaid & had to fight to fix it. Then leadership changed & things were good, until recently they dangled a promotion only to tell me it wouldn’t come with a raise for at least 6 mons. Then a diff agency asked me to apply for a role that pays a lot more but the work sounds so boring. Do I follow the money or do I keep doing work I like while feeling undervalued?
My girlfriend is pregnant and is looking for recommendations for good cotton wear during later stages of pregnancy. Any ideas?

I am looking to drop my series 7 and join an RIA. I’ve finally accepted that the BD environment is a terrible fit for me. I would like to join an RIA team because I’m just over 5 years in and I would like to have some mentors to continue learning from, but if I can’t find the right fit then my plan is to launch my own. Where to start looking for an established RIA? I have not completed my CFP yet.
