Is Deloitte the only top firm to have layoffs? I heard this from my manager today and find it hard to believe
All this news of layoffs is so depressing. I’m blaming holding company greed. This forces agencies to be ruthless and squeeze employees until they are in the brink of nervous breakdowns.
Looking at the way people are laid off, utilization is just one part of it. It's so hard to pin point what is (proper consultants let go from projects, etc..)
Firm: Mass layoffs/no raises after a year long busy season. It’s just business. Workers: Leaves right before the next busy season starts. Also Firm:
Holding Co HR people please answer: Why do you blackball people who were fired from an agency in your network from working at other agencies? What if it was a just a bad fit?
Would you get fired if you edit your department partners’ picture and send it to your colleague?
I was due for a promotion but then covid hit, and during the peak of layoffs/furloughs, I was given the run-around that we have agency wide promotion freezes, etc. Over the past month, a handful of people have been promoted. I know everyone's situation is different but I can't help feeling snubbed. How do I know whether they are genuinely trying to promote me and can't, versus them stringing me along for as long as possible? I dont want it to come to having to bring another offer to the table..
Layoff news from Deloitte! Is there a pattern?

Anyone have experience with getting NIE approvals for booking emergency H1B consular notification interview appointments at US embassies in Europe or Norway specifically? I recently got my I-129 consular notification petition approved and it seems like all US embassies in Europe and my home country of Norway are not allowing for normal scheduling of petition based employment visa appointments unless you have an approved NIE. Any tips or experiences would be very much appreciated 🙂
Can anyone recommend me insightful books which can help consulting/career but not with titles like “how to be a successful manager” etc.
Used Skiplagged to book a United flight. Hidden city on a one way saved $300 per person, so was worth it. I know conventional wisdom is to not connect to MileagePlus, but it should be fine if it's just one time, right? Seems like I could just say someone in my party felt sick so we missed second leg.
In case you never got to see the New York Times article about air quality in classrooms, I’m posting it here for you. It makes some very important points about creating the safest possible environment for students and teachers. 1. Open windows if it all possible 2. Place air purifier centrally 3. Don’t place fans in a way where the air is pointed at people Have a great year and keep yourself and your students safe! https://www.nytimes.com/interactive/2021/02/26/science/reopen-schools-safety-ventilation.html ￼￼￼￼￼

Salary negotiation Applied to a job, agreed a salary expectation of £125k to £135k. Discussed range as achievable on two separate occasions. 3 interview rounds later, offer of £106k. Strong pushback from me on the call and a follow up note. Awaiting a revised offer. Any thoughts on that strong a lowball opening offer? I am both irritated and intrigued.
