Wow good job It’s so incredibly privileged to have opportunities like that. I think being nervous right now is very valid even if that’s not yours or my concern atm

The layoffs come in three months when the demand isn’t there - we all live in a false sense of security right now. 2008 September meltdown layoffs and 2001 September terrorist layoffs both hit in January.

Management consulting gives you a set of traits that will be well desired whatever happens. What you can control at this point is your savings for an emergency fund, working hard at work to secure your job, and keeping an eye out on the market for good opportunities

What is the order of layoffs? Low performers (across all levels), highly compensated senior managers not on partner track, average performers (across all levels prioritizing the levels that are over leveraged)?

My headhunter (one I actually trust) told me to hunker down and not move until things shake out. Starting a new place now is a good way to be the first lay-off in that new place. Things are too unstable.

I have asked recruiters who reach out directly and 90% of them either say that the job was given to them before all this and they have not spoken with the company since. Or they have and the company is going forward with virtual interviewing but will hold any offer until after all this is done. I’ve heard freezes given from June to September.

Laid off today

That’s unfortunate, what’s the firm?

The 6.6 million people who got laid off last week would disagree with your assessment of the situation.

It’s disturbing that Publicis fired Tom Goodwin for his Twitter rant. To be clear, they are well within their rights to do so, but I wouldn’t want to work somewhere where you can get fired for questioning the prevailing orthodoxy about important issues of the day, including political topics. Strategists in particular need to feel the freedom think out loud, even if it’s messy. Enforcing a party-line yields party-line thinking.

OH.MY.GOSH. Very, very long story short, it was brought to my attention that one of my employees has a very.."active" OnlyFans account. I'm trying to find a balance between respecting what people's interests are outside of work and how that work might influence our company's image. This is an "R" rated OnlyFans. I really don't know what to do. She's such a sweetheart but if word gets out that I knew and I kept her on the team or didn't reprimand her, I could lose my job. Any suggestions?

My brother is a mechanic with 10+ years experience but was laid off due to COVID. He's having a hard time even finding jobs to apply for and asked me for advice.

He'd have to fully finance his degree and I'm just not sure if it's worth it for him to start over at the bottom, or what industry he'd even fit in...
