People who have had confidence knocks: how did you get it back? I was laid off, 6M out of work, had therapy, now freelancing but I’m slow af. It’s like my brain only works in 2nd gear now.
Any tips for negotiating your severance for a non-partner role? Many good years at the firm—it’s just not working out of late and both me and my firm are looking to part ways.
Inspired by another thread- has anyone reported something and ended up taking a severance/ signing an NDA? What was your experience?
Clients spent 20 minutes during the middle of a meeting to shit on BCG for getting them laid off from their previous jobs. How's it feel to be the Bobs?
How's Edelman NY? Getting hit up for Health which I've never done. It'll entail moving from advertising to PR/earned creative as they call it, and the Health category. Didn't sound like hard sell pharma, quite a bit of branded video content. I searched on FB, sounded mostly negative culturally (employee fired during Pride month, political, creatives better watch their backs, climate denier) with a few who love it. Figured I'll ask if anything's changed, if it's even worth ... considering.
People always say how hard it is to get fired if u work hard at a big 4 but people get put on pips left and right which lead to getting fired. So I guess not getting fired is just a myth
90% sure I’m about to be fired for sexual harassment (more detail in comments). Should I resign before I’m fired?

Anyone made the switch from Tax/Audit to analyst/Consulting? What's your favorite thing about the switch? I just received an offer from Accenture as an Analyst for something unrelated to my last position. Really fired up. 🎉
What is the EY severance package ?
Well fuck. I got laid off. Just when you think you’re in the clear, 2020 brings the pain. Guess it’s true that the big title comes with a big target.
Has anyone negotiated a clause where you can’t be fired/laid off for a certain amount of time after starting a new job?
Question for the more seasoned consultants, these layoffs and overall downturn in our industry, is it an annual cycle? Or is this abnormally bad
I don't understand the concept of receiving a 4 on Year End (and getting laid off). There is no set percentage to give people 4's and 5's right? How does one mess up that badly?
Anyone know when holiday layoffs are being scheduled for this year? First week of December or end of January?

Exploring the cyber security career field but I have a question: if this is your job and the company you work for gets hacked, do you get fired?
This country needs labor laws that actually protect workers is when time like this comes, average folks like us don't have to worry to sick about layoffs.

Is it okay to wear polos with logos of prior companies you worked for to work at the Big 4? Does it matter if you're on a client vs at the office?
If I have my water heater replaced by a handyman who knows what he’s doing but isn’t licensed, and something down the line happens forcing me to use my home insurance, am I potentially covered? I fear the answer is no but it’s kinda nuts how much plumbers are charging me when I already have the water heater and just want it installed. I don’t need the old one removed either. I was quoted $750
Hi everyone! I will be going through my first whiteboard/case-style interview for the first time (I was converted from an intern to full time at my current company). This marketing associate position would require some level of excel knowledge specifically on Pivot Tables & VLookUps for email campaign analysis. What’s your experience with interviews like these, and any tips for a first-timer? Thank you in advance!
I’m mid-level in my HR career at my current company and an upcoming Master’s graduate. Studying for my SHRM-CP too. How did you make the transition to that next level? What skills do you need, or is it really just based on YOE (I am the youngest compared to my teammates, many who have 10+ YOE)? I feel like career pathing is not very clear at my company. Each time I ask for guidance on this from my manager, I get told they’ll look into it.... would love some external mentorship and thoughts 🙏🏼

One thing I truly will never understand is how Zoom became so successful despite the success of so many other meeting platforms.
Had an interview last week that went well. The next day, HR sent an additional application to fill out (basically same info as the online app). Is that a good sign or usual process for 2 apps? Still waiting to hear back.
Does anyone know if TCS offers joining bonus to laterals? If yes, how much for 3-4 yoe? And does joining bonus means we need to give a commitment or something?
