To the people getting emails for a time to talk from random partners (meaning getting laid off) could you just keep rescheduling to buy you a little more time?

I am sorry, if you are referring to yourself. I recommend that you "get your affairs in order," ie back up your contact list and email it to yourself, then just bite the bullet. There is life after a layoff (I speak from experience), and you will land on your feet.

Are you on the bench? Taking PTO?

What practice are you OP?

Don't answer numbers you don't recognize. When I got laid off from another company, they snatched my laptop, so I would be careful to avoid leaving it where hr could snag it surreptitiously. I think they can probably brick your computer pretty quickly now, and I don't think you could avoid the meeting for more than 24 hours.

Haha I didn't get an email but know that there are some on here who have and just wondered if this would would work.

We are still laying off people?!

What group?

No😀 no one I'm aware of is getting laid off at PwC. This is really just a thought I had

OP, I got laid off from pwc a few weeks ago.. I thought i should've rescheduled the meeting, perhaps said I was sick or had a family emergency and bought myself an extra few days/week. Hindsight is 20/20!! Would definitely suggest making a list of items to complete if you're worried about being laid off.

^ haha I know. I realized as soon as I posted it would probably be misunderstood. It's truly just hypothetical. Sorry for the confusion!

Sorry P5 my reply was to P4

Pwc4 - they said I wasn't a good fit for the group. Can't say what group as it'll probably give me away, sorry

Anyone worried about layoffs?

New here from 🇨🇦, and have an odd question about the health system here. I went to a Dr. for a fully covered standard appointment and swore I uploaded my insurance to their portal. I was laid off from my tech company a week later and lost benefits two weeks post that. THEN I get the full bill from the Dr. and they never billed my insurance or called for it if it was missing. Is this normal? The US system is crazy when it comes to billing! Never comes on time or correctly🫠

Hey all, Happy Monday. Curious for feedback on how you've seen severance offers approached.

My prior companies have always been what I thought of as average: min of 2 weeks plus extra week for every year for ICs, min of 4 weeks plus extra week for every year for managers, etc. for Directors & beyond.

Current co refuses to offer more than 1-2 weeks, max. I had to go to bat recently for a 3 year + manager level only to get 3 weeks and my leadership team is NOT happy with me.

Thoughts?

Hi all,

I recently started working remotely for an IT consulting firm based in LA and NYC (400 EE). I joined at 65K with 3.5years experience and 5k bonus. I currently live in MN.

When I first joined, we had a head of HR with a comp of 170K and HR manager 100K. We are all remote. Now the company fired the head of HR and asked my manger and I to revise our comp and submit to accounting.

What is the right salary to ask for? since I have a lot of things to take care of now.

Laid off by my group and was given time to find a new gig. I found a new one and will be departing the firm in two weeks.

My guess is they’re disappointed with me and feel like I’ve embarrassed them. How do I salvage this relationship? I’ve beaten myself up enough for my performance issues that led to this.
