My wife was informed a few weeks ago that she would be laid off as of end of year. She signed the paperwork and will be receiving a decent severance due to her tenure there.

If she says no, is she still eligible for her severance since she already signed her paperwork?

Partners: How do some partners get fired? I know that on the surface it is due to their performance, but i am curious if you have any data points or observations on any underlying drivers. I work for a global firm, and though most partners I know are lifers, i personally have worked with a couple partners who were counseled out. They were seemingly good, competent consultants good at structuring problems. They cared about junior consultants. Didnt see any issues with clients..

Need advice - working less than a month. I recently moved to industry as VP role from audit. I realized that workload and responsibilities were way more than I expected and the company fired so many people ( vps and svps) and wants me to replace 3 VPs work for the year-end. I worked all wknds just to figure out if I can compete the work or not, and concluded that it’s beyond my capacity. I was not told this during interview, and the culture is very toxic as well.
