Analysts who left in their 1st year either (voluntarily or laid off) where did you end up and how long did it take you? Consulting isn't for me and I'm obviously only eligible for entry level roles
If you get laid off is it possible to go to a B2 visa and then back to a H1B? Extremely stressed with current situation and having purchased a house recently seems to be adding additional pressure.
Are you panicking about layoffs yet? Wondering how immune we are as Salesforce consultants
I was laid off in April when there was just email and phones. Cut to five months later and I’m working again. Yay. But suddenly it’s all Zoom, Slack, Teams, Slides, Sheets. Email is dead. And phones are only for Zoom, Slack, Teams, Slides and Sheets. It feels like I woke up from a coma in a shitty version of the future and everyone else is fine with it. How did anyone adjust to this?
The more pedestrian your intellect, the better fit you are at D Heard of a colleague with an FRM charter being laid off today. Overall excellent person. And you won't believe who they promote year after year.. the character, curiosity and quality of the lifers Don't join this firm if you for a love of learning and to be inspired. Join if you are a middling who wants a good brand to hack ahead in life and rise above your station
To our Manager of Production, Head of Accounts noted the extreme stress being put on the production dept due to layoffs and resignations and suggested our team needed more support. Manager simply replied “let them walk.”
That’s going to leave a mark - 25k job cuts globally @ ACN https://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-8660159/Hundreds-Australian-jobs-risk-Accenture-slashes-workforce.html
How long and difficult do you think it will be to find a new job if you are laid off in the next couple of months or so?
Has anyone on H1B here been laid off and found a job within the 60 day graces period? If so, what was your strategy?
If you get fired due to performance issues can you still file for unemployment? If so, will you get enough money for rent and food?
If you're laid off, do they ask you to resign? If so, can you refuse and ask them to fire you instead?
Unfortunately was just laid off. I’m taking this as an opportunity to look forward to new experiences and people to work with. If anyone knows of any Producer gigs, I’m now available. I’m agency side.
Any tips on negotiating severance package? What’s typical package for a NY lay off? How do we maximize the money we receive? I’ve also read things on the internet that say “don’t sign it on the spot.”
I’ve been laid off for 6 months+ looking for senior account management roles in NYC. My background is in digital content strategy, performance marketing, and ecommerce.
If you are separated from your firm and you are kept on payroll for an additional month to facilitate payout of severance when does the 60 day grace period count start? Is it on the last day on payrl?
KPMG is taking the PWC approach to audit layoffs. Low performers will be separated rather than defining a RIF, but we all know it’s a lay-off by another name.
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 ❤️ 😔
Is Deloitte the only top firm to have layoffs? I heard this from my manager today and find it hard to believe
What generally produces better returns - 401k invested in index, or landlords with leverage?
Hey, I have applied to a job at EY for Risk assurance. My academics are pretty good and I'm pursuing ACCA with BCom, with a year of internship experience as well. I have tried to apply but I think a referral would really help. Please dm me for referrals. Would be happy to speak on linkedin as well and send my job ID as well.
Experienced hires applying to consulting roles - are your resumes 1 page long or 2 pages?
How much more expensive is it to live in SF than NYC? On my last round interview at a larger startup based in SF and trying to figure out what level of raise I would need to move.
Friend wants to join consulting for the pay. I don’t believe she has the aptitude or energy for it. We worked together in a much slower industry, and even there she complained of being overworked. I’ve sent her resources to polish up her resume and links for roles but she’s insisting on texting/long phone calls asking silly questions. Today she wants a resume review over zoom! She comes without having done her homework. How do I tell her I’ve given as much as I can? How do I decline referring?
Anyone else completely mail it in after giving their 2 weeks? Major senioritis for me rn. Probably had 2 billable hours today. Maybe
I have an interview with a big tech firm very soon. I’m in an awkward beard growth stage and kinda look like crap but not really, do y’all think it’ll affect anything?
In the interview process for a FAANG. It’s been almost 2 months, and I’ve been through four interviews. Still waiting on final decision. Does that seem like a long time frame?
MBB energy practice in Houston: (1) how busy are you (2) how big is the practice (3) what kind of projects do you typically work on (4) are you hiring?
any good book recommendations on product management? and just any good books you have read recently!
Partners, I'm interested in hearing your answer to these 3 questions and appreciate your feedback. 1) How old were you when you made Partner? 2) How old are you now? 3) What is your gender identity?

Does anyone feel under utilized at work?
Is anyone here taking care of their baby while WFH with no extra help? What’s your experience so far? I have a 2 month old and my leave ends in 7 weeks so I am debating whether or not I should start looking for childcare or if I can multitask and keep her at home atleast until 6months. I also exclusively pump.
Everyone keeps talking about regretting not being a SWE at FAANG and earning 250k+ straight away. If you aren’t at MBB, there is a very good chance you would also have not got into FAANG
What is your avg screen time? I’m using at 7-8 hours each day which seems insane but maybe it’s because I use my phone for all the zoom calls?
