Coronavirus Work-life

Was laid off last week from Deloitte after two years. While I’m sad about the situation, I’m taking it as a sign from the universe to start anew. Interested in pivoting to public sector consulting. Would anyone from Guidehouse be able to refer me? Curious about the day to day life of someone working at Guidehouse as well. Thank you in advance.

Look, don’t take this the wrong way, but if the universe is sending any messages, I doubt it would be “go forth, young one, and find your true calling at Guidehouse”

OP, check Glassdoor/Indeed for more insights on public sector. I am just going to leave this here...

Once you enter this public sector space you may find it hard to get commercial people to take you seriously at all. GH or any other PS firm might be a mistake if you want to stay competitive. It’s government quality work but without stable government benefits.

That’s very true!! I am trying to get back to commercial before it’s too late

I'm a first year atty. I make $45K at a small firm of 5. In the last three weeks, my assistant has been fired (caught with pot on break), another paralegal quit, and now another assistant has resigned. I have a caseload of 80, with no help. Boss says they are looking, they made an offer, but if that person accepts, it will be weeks before they are ready. I'm falling apart and crying at my desk and can't sleep. Told owner. "Hang in there." Do I walk now? Or hang in there?

Has anyone here filed for unemployment in California? I got laid off 2 weeks ago and at the time was seeing projections online that the fed govt pmts would only cover about 25 million ppl (not sure how accurate that is). My claim is still pending with CA but the total amount projected per week is only $400; doesn’t include an extra $600 fed govt pmt. Does anyone know if the $600 gets added somewhere else in the process? I hope I didn’t just miss out because I was lay-off 25,000,001
