For those who have been laid off - have any of you thought or actively tried to pivot into a new career/field?
Deloitte had an impact on me and several colleagues that they laid off #impactday #impactwhatmatters
Deloitte layoffs still happening. What the heck?
What constitutes a “notice period” when terminated? Wondering if eligible for severance. Not fired for any of the “causes”. Working in at-will state.
I hate that I can’t just enjoy a quiet period instead of feeling like it means I’m about to get laid off
I always thought it was strange that agencies rarely let candidates know the client until they are towards the end of the process. My position has way more job security than others simply because I work for a CPG client. Those in the same role on other accounts (e.g. airlines, hotels, fitness) have been furloughed or even laid off just because of the nature of the industry their client is in. Do we think agencies will have to be more transparent and let candidates ultimately chose the client?
Craziest stories about people getting fired?
How to negotiate being brought on at a higher level? Was laid off and recently received an offer from a comparable consulting firm, but they want to bring me in at a level lower than what I was at before. How should I go about negotiating to be brought on at the same level I was at (two years of experience at level, would have gone up next performance year)?
Since graduating college 4.5 years ago I’ve worked at three marketing agencies averaging a year and two months at each. I took four months off earlier this year after a layoff to study data science. I’m now back in digital marketing on month six of my current job. How long should I stay at my current company? I’ve been told two years minimum which is unfortunate because if I leave in six months I’ll make a lot more money on the market.
How often does Deloitte layoff people? I've read some older reports on quota on Deloitte layoffs, do these happen often? Is it for folks on bench for x amount of time?
With all these layoffs and redundancies in Consulting, should I ditch my shares in montblanc and moleskine?
who ultimately in your organization has the say on whether or not you get fired? iow, who do u have to suck up to the most or have most support from in order to stay safe and not get booted from firm
Is it wrong that I like when people leave or get fired? Not like I get joy from misfortune but I love the drama and scoop
Laid off bc of lack of work, told I have a few weeks to find a new job BUT have been getting assigned new projects since then. Wtf do I do?

What worked particularly well in your firm’s Asian diversity teams? And what seemed like a good idea but has only marginal impact in the end?
What are jobs and companies that require similar skills like consulting, digital marketing, etc. but have excellent WLB and are more slower paced...? I can’t imagine working my life away for client demands in a fast paced environment for the long term. Also the longer I progress in my role, the more I have to focus on sales and I hate sales so much 😢
