Consulting Exit Opportunities

Unless you are laid off or fired, as an Associate can you negotiate a severance package if you're leaving for another job? I'm trying to sweeten my exit

Think about what you’re asking. You’re leaving willingly, yet you want to negotiate more money for leaving? Under no circumstances do you not get laughed out the door.

Today is my last day. I did not try this and I can assure it is not an option. There is no point in the process at EY where this is possible/plausible/sane.

Can anyone share how they have terminated/laid off during a virtual only environment? Specifically several people at once. How does the process/logistics look? Wondering what is the best process/logistics to take for those being let go. Also, for those who stay, what worked best -communication wise? How have you handled equipment and any other security considerations given that the person(s) are not in the office.

slowly realizing that maybe consulting isn’t for me after all, but I literally do not have any other idea what I could possibly do. not really a productive post, but just needed to get this off my chest. It feels like I’m just waiting for the day I get laid off or just go completely insane...

I have seen the level of discourse fall and become mean spirited on the Women in Consulting board recently. We are all stressed and busy. Note: Trolls welcome on other boards. Please only respond if you “T.H.I.N.K.” Before you type. T -Is it true? H - is it helpful? I - is it inspiring? N - is it necessary? K - is it kind? - thank you for considering this ask.
