How are layoffs being announced these days? Teams? Zoom? Txt? Phone call? Seems kinda awkward if you’re wfh with the spouse and family in the same room.
I feel bad admitting this because of the state of the world, but I had a great summer. After years of working in toxic environments with terrible people, getting laid off and having time to myself again was amazing. I finished personal projects. I got sleep. I read doorstop books that needed more attention than subway reading. And now freelance work is picking up (and I don’t hate it.) I even got Covid but only had mild symptoms. Banner summer for sure.
Is there any way your coworkers could know ahead of time if somebody and who is getting fired soon? Or is it impossible for staffs/seniors to know this?
I’ve just been laid off and looking for a new job. I’m on an H1B visa and I am a business valuation professional. Any referrals would be appreciated
I’m feeling very sad. I just learned that the partner in my previous firm got fired. I considered him my mentor. He took me under his wing. He was my Don Draper and I was his Peggy Olson. I’m really bummed about this, heartbroken and worried. Nobody knows why. The ex-colleague said everything was normal, they sent him emails but bounced back. Nobody saw it coming. 😢
Fishbowl needs to fix the auto categorization algorithm. Now the Fort Lauderdale shooting is under the Layoffs search based on the word "fired".
A friend 🐠 was fired for accidentally sending confidential info to the wrong client and is worried about her chances of landing a new gig. How much should she tell the prospective employer about it?
3 people were fired this week, and I've heard of 5 people leaving my group this week. Stuff is getting crazy...
For anyone who was recently laid off: I just went though the hell that is “everything unemployment” related and made a cheat sheet on all I learned in the past month - hope this helps someone!
to all my fellow EY, KPMG people.. If i am a cbder (consulting by degrees) and was about to promote to Sr. Consultant in October, got laid off... what would be an equivalent position to apply for?
Whole family was laid off work so I’m the only one working right now. Really demoralizing. Crazy times
Is it weird that my CEO has not issued any communication to the company about the impact of the pandemic and what we are doing? Meanwhile, people are being laid off, furloughed and taking pay cuts.
I've been laid off from D. I'm seeking a similar role, "Resource Manager" or "Engagement Staffing Manager". To summarize, the role entails working with business managers to help fill open roles, providing available staff, and forecasts, etc.; and working with practitioners as they near or land on the bench. Do other consulting firms, such as EY, PWC, Accenture, etc. have such positions? If so, what are titles do they have? I'm seeking alternative search terms.
As opposed to forcing layoffs, could a firm just request their employees to go on sabbatical for reduced pay?
I’m being let go. It came as a surprise because my time with the company I’ve gotten positive feedback. A couple of weeks ago my boss told me that I was being put on a 30 day performance review plan. The last 2 weeks I’ve gotten positive feedback about improvement but on Thursday my boss decided to cut the review plan short and give me an end date. Since I’ve been there <1 year I’m getting 2 weeks severance. Is there room for severance negotiation? A friend in HR (not ad) told me I should ask.
I've been freelancing for nearly 2 years but want to go full time now. Do I still need to tell recruiters I was laid off and that's when I started freelancing?
How do people generally invest in stocks long term ? I bought some stocks last month for mid-long term. But once the market stabilizes, do people keep adding more monthly like 401k or wait for....

How do you show travel insurance proof for schengen visa for tourism ? Is it the credit card coverage or the Deloitte health coverage? Do you guys get a new travel insurance ?
EY just assured that there won’t be any workforce reduction. Also no performance bonus this year. How do you feel? (Me: I am proud that we always put people first)
H1B transfer question. You get an offer from a new employer who wants to do the transfer. How soon can you start working for the new employer? Do you have to wait for anything to get approved or can you start working for the new employer as you wait for approvals? Theres a gap of 2-3 weeks in between old job and new job. Sorry about the lack of proper terminology above.
Not a normal confession but I'm so mad FOR our local IT department. GroupM/WPP decided to reorg them under IBM so they all had to be re- interviewed for their same exact job and were then informed ...
Anyone took up to a year off from work and then went back to consulting? How did interviews go re: how the time was spent if it was time off related to family? Fyi not that I had a kid; other reasons
Anyone familiar with strategy & analytics at REITs? Recruiter reached about a manager role for ~150k base + 30% bonus, but wondering about the long term career prospects. Any insights appreciated!
Are any of the firms planning more layoffs? Any specific industries? Is it just lack of demand causing this?
