You are on bench? Can you please tell your YOE and Technology?

Resign yourself and look for good opportunities outside.

Don't resign they'll release you instantly. Give interviews outside and once you got offer then resign.

Yes but situation is bad immediate firing..

They are giving 2 months notice it seems

Yoe and techstack?

They will ask you to leave . Don't resign

I was in bench too since last 3 months. Got a call today to resign. Your tech? Testing? Devops?

During the pandemic every Organisation has opened a new concept called "Anywhere", most of the people are not reading the contract note in offer letter properly on why they are paying high salaries for Anywhere - You please need to think through while taking the offer letters - because the policies for Anywhere (Any Company) vs Regular Employees always be different. it is only for general knowledge purpose.

Yes, you are right. But I was from systems and got laid off yesterday.

The company has this rule where we have to check customers' IDs if they are buying anything age-restricted (alcohol, etc.) I hate it because customers get super mad at me and one of them told me "if you think I'm too young then you're stupid and don't deserve to have a job." It's not my policy guys, it's the company. I tell people I would get fired if I didn't do this and they never believe me

Hi guys,

Got laid off due to COVID. Pretty distressed and worried. I rarely ask for help but would appreciate referrals for Consulting roles at MBB/Tier2 or Strategy/PM at big tech. Promise to pay it forward.

I've worked as a management consultant for 5 years. Have experience in high tech, health care, retail, auto among others. Love leading & working across cross functional teams. MBA.

Happy to send my resume over.

Thank you very much 🙏

I’m about to leave my work to take a break and help my grandma move to a care home since my mother died. I will then look for a new job. How do I avoid future employers believing I got fired? I’m worried they think that I got fired since I left my job without a second job ready.


Anybody else also having the layoffs anxiety already ? Any update/rumours about GL ?
