I just don’t like this current manager and I recently joined Deloitte 4 months ago. Should I consider quitting the firm or do you think there is a chance to quit project (and not get fired )
Thought this was interesting. Across 160 teams of researchers, just about all failed to make good life outcome predictions on things like GPA, evictions, layoffs, and others. Data followed 4.5k families across 15 years, with 13k features (varied over time). Haven't looked at it directly yet, but will be turning the docs and data inside out... In the meantime, authors claim this as showing the limits of ML. Oh, and it's published in PNAS, so you know there's some big publication energy there. https://www.pnas.org/content/117/15/8398
There were another round of layoffs at MullenLowe and 99% of them were female creatives. Why do you guys think this keeps happening?
If you got a bad first performance review (actually bad, so figure a 1 or 2 out of 5, but no PIP and given the chance to improve, and also told it’s fine because first review), and you’re not getting fired over it, would you put a lot of effort into trying to move firms once you’re able to say you have a year of experience, or would you just try to improve your reputation at the firm you’re already at, since leaving after 1 year isn’t generally ideal?
What % of people in the agency business for 10-12 years have experienced 1 or more layoffs? Just got laid off for the 1st time last week and think it’s more common than I realized.
How many ppl are still left to be laid off?? I had a few good ppl disappear last couple of weeks... when does it end??
Honestly being laid off sounds pretty good as a staff working 65 hours a week 🤷♂️ would be making more money doing nothing.
Kavanaugh aside - I’m curious on the whole “this isn’t a job interview so due process isn’t important line”. Do folks really believe that? Abstract it away from him. Like any accusation gets u fired..
I was just laid off from a mid-sized B2B agency trying to go creative and changing their mind. Any advice on the portfolio since the creative is... lacking?
After getting laid off 2 weeks ago, I fired off about 20 resumes to different places. I have not received any feedback at all. Any ideas how to get past the computer and in front of someone?

James Comey: Fired. Sally Yates: Fired. Preet bharara: Fired. All were investigating trump in some capacity...
Got laid off but have a new employer sponsoring my h1 and have started the process. Do the chance of a transfer being RFEd increase if the petition is filed more than 30 days after i am am unemployed?
Given uncertainty in market, can we expect layoffs in Advisory and Assurance? I think Assurance folks are still safe...cause audit is still a requirement ! Regulators may ease it for banks...
I’m currently a consultant looking to join a growth equity fund. Does anyone know of interesting growth equity funds hiring in NYC? Also, can anyone provide insight into WLB at these funds?
People are writing posts calling Stan Richards brave. How fucking dare you call that man “brave” after the way he himself spoke about his racist remarks in the interview to the Texas Monthly. I’m over this LinkedIn nonsense of people trying to be important and sharing their “take” when there’s nothing at all smart about it. How about instead we write about analyzing why it was so wrong? How we change our own systems so we stop perpetuating and defending this behavior?
Exit options/Capital Markets: Are in-house exit options for CM attorney meaningfully better at firms that do more issuer side work? Considering leaving my v10 underwriter side heavy firm to go to a place that does more issuer side, probably somewhere like Wilson Sonsini or Fenwick. Thoughts on whether this would improve exit options?
Can I ask to have my travel reimbursed for a client site in my home office city? There is no direct public transportation available to that site (70 min) and I would likely have to uber (15 min).
I have my 401k (vanguard) in a target fund. I am assuming this isn’t the best option, so wondering if I should move the money into something else (or a few different things)? Trying to keep things simple so maybe like 90% VOO or VTI and 10% bond ETF? Thoughts?

My 8-month old has been in childcare for 10 weeks and came home today with a bruise on his forehead due to another kid throwing a toy at him. This is the second time this has happened. Is that normal?
Anyone here work in consulting, not advisory, in Portland, Oregon? When I accepted my position out of school they sold it to me as consulting, however, after 5 years, a better description would have been advisory. Just curious what "real" consulting firms operate out of Portland.
