I have been on my SO’s case about drinking. He is unemployed and has been laid off. He has been having drinks 3x a week. One or two glasses a session. I drink 2-3x a month. I say it is too much. He’s Irish and I’ve lived in Ireland. People binge drink the entire weekend until they fall over. Someone who comes home from work drinks one dram of whiskey every night. This is normal. Americans define this as alcoholism.Do you think this is a cultural difference or actual excessive drinking?
After watching succession it lowkey felt like it was written about the Ford family. Around the time I was watching the show I met bill ford at some event I help organize at the train station being rebuilt. Thought I was on the come up. Couple months later I was laid-off/fired ahah. Wasn’t even a mid manager was just an entry level employee lololol.
Informed today that, unless we win some new business in the next 90 days, I’ll be laid off. Thoughts on when I should start to make alternative plans? (Con’t)
Gonna start new project after 5 months on the bench. It's a miracle they haven't fired me 🙌
Would you get fired if you edit your department partners’ picture and send it to your colleague?
There is truly nothing like going through the shock of layoffs and then seeing your closest coworkers still here at the end of the day. Hold you peeps close today folks ❤️ 😔
Happy layoff hunger games
If the big4 has an up or out model, do a lot of senior managers get laid off? Not everyone can be a partner/principle. How long can someone be a partner/principle for?
Firm: Mass layoffs/no raises after a year long busy season. It’s just business. Workers: Leaves right before the next busy season starts. Also Firm:
I’m at 71k now at 1 YOE. Is there any good reason to take a pay cut for a new job? (Assuming I don’t get laid off or fired and have to scramble for cash)
Anyone looking for a freelance graphic designer or illustrator? Just got laid off, and could use something to hold me over.
Nothing today on the S& layoffs?
Am I ever going to get past the self doubt mode? I feel like every time I speak or do anything, I just sit and think about whether I should have said or done it. I get worried I am wrong or overstepped. I am constantly worried I will get fired for being incompetent. Gah, I wish I could just trust in myself.
My partner and I are thinking about moving to NYC! Are there any CW jobs there right now or is it totally oversaturated from layoffs?
Used to work as an AE at Yelp. Got laid off. What do you think the areas of opportunity are right now in the world of sales? Still a good time to be in tech?
If you're laid off, do they ask you to resign? If so, can you refuse and ask them to fire you instead?
From reading this app. I realize we have it really well at EY. Deloitte doing major layoffs, KMPG has to come in at the crack of dawn, PwC well the hours..
Heard that you are not likely to get laid off for being unstaffed if you got promoted in the last performance cycle, anyone know if that's true?
Can somebody refer me at MBB, Accenture, EY and PwC? Victim of Deloitte layoff. Would appreciate any and all the help I can get!
I got the J&J vaccine (only one I could get back in April) and unlike the MRNA vaccines, it looks like there is very little data on how it performs against the Delta variant. Any other J&Jers out there feeling a little nervous?
Has anyone filed for an H1B extension with consular processing recently? How are the approvals these day? Are we seeing many RFEs?
About to leave my firm and consulting for an industry, totally remote role. Just surprised at how sad I am feeling at this point. Any of you other mama’s make a similar move?

See a lot of comp posts from consultants - have any of you considered enterprise technology sales? Certainly a different job that requires different knowledge/skills but I see parallels/ think a consultant could do well in sales if they’re okay with a lot of rejection. The pay seems similar (my OTE is about 400k; 8 YoE, individual contributor) but I imagine the hours are better and it can be fun if you like solving customer problems, to challenge customers, and building relationships
Serious question: Anyone know any good therapists in the ATL area for depression and anxiety issues?
Scammed my client today: their small soup costs $1.95, but the large soup which is only 50% bigger costs $4.50. Bought TWO smalls which = more than one large for LESS money
Currently a senior analyst (1.5 YOE) at AFS, anyone at Deloitte have an idea at what level I'd be hired at? Pay range? Looking at an agile role (have certs)
Anyone who is on an H1B in consulting (strategy/ operations) tried visa transfer recently to Tech strategy roles? Wanted to understand if people have had a smooth sail or is there any reason to worry about timelines? Just can’t go on at McKinsey tbh. Thanks
Had global services, didn’t even qualify for gold the next year, united gave me premier 1K. Anyone been able to status match to delta platinum in this situation without an activity statement showing..
Asalamualaikum everyone, hope everyone had a great thanksgiving holiday and some Black Friday shopping with family and friends? This is my first time in this bowl and I’m liking what I see so far.
Could anyone share examples with me of how your agency’s briefing docs (creative briefs, channel briefs etc..) includes prompts for diversity and inclusion or cultural considerations?
Those of you who got a convertible/standing desk, is it worth it? Considering getting one but I honestly don’t know how often I’d stand
After you get your physical green card, do you have to get like a stamp on your passport as well?
Let’s say one of us gets laid off. Does it benefit our search in relation to opportunities through LinkedIn contacts if we don’t update our employment status? Does it hurt? Does it matter?
