Anyone else feel like as you move up, you have to work even harder to justify your value to your company as you grow “out of the weeds”? Especially with the fear of layoffs looming over everyone’s heads.
Maybe I’m off base here but seems like EY kept a bunch of low performers through year end to justify keeping everyone’s pay stagnant for FY21 that will be around after these supposed layoffs, cause now they are canning a bunch of people and it’s not like things are any better now than they were in June...anyone disagree?
This is just weird. (Layoffs a week or so ago)
You know the market is heating back up when multiple Recruiters from D start sending you e-mails simultaneously...Uncle D must be hurting now after all those layoffs lol
Got let go today. Re-structuring. There less than 3 months. They are offering me 1 week severance. Thoughts?
Just got the axe, it’s weirdly nice to be laid off via Zoom and not walk the plank to HR and have everyone see me publicly crying. Time to crack a beer for sure.
I am so glad that PwC has not fired the accountants for the Oscar fiasco. Good to see firms making an attempt to protect their employees despite so much media scrutiny and witch-hunting
This will mean massive layoffs right?
How long and difficult do you think it will be to find a new job if you are laid off in the next couple of months or so?
Layoffs - I heard a lot of layoffs at Huron and Studer of Directors and above. Time to jump ship ?
Hi, so I was told on Friday that today (Tuesday) would be my last day at my job, and I know it was unwarranted and unfair, but it was a really toxic work environment, and I was already miserable, so it wasn’t a place I wanted to stay. I had only been there a few months, does being terminated affect me getting my next job/anyone have stories of success after getting fired? Feeling really down.
So, just what did Nick Emery do to get fired? ‘Prank gone wrong on zoom’ is all I’m hearing
If anybody is impacted by the KPMG layoffs today let me know if you want to discuss new opportunities
Round of layoffs happening at 360i today. Don’t worry guys, take it as a blessing in disguise - you all deserve better than that place. ❤️
Want to look at the bright side of being laid off. Any stories of success from being laid off? How was it a blessing in disguise?
Recently laid off, and overwhelmed by all the things I have to do. How do you prioritise and how do you cope? I feel like I could be working on job-hunting all day and night but is that healthy?
Took my first job in a 'health' advertising agency for the help with my visa, hate it and want to go back to regular clients at a better shop. 1yr exp here, 1 year of internships. How do I do it?
Rollover old firm 401k/wealth builder into current employer 401k or new rollover IRA? Pros and cons? Thank you for thoughts!
Is it fine to share offer letter with HR for compensation revise/counter offer ? I feel it's confidential document and should not be shared ?
How many agencies that have spent the last year talking about Black Lives Matter/equality/diversity and then don’t do a very simple thing like closing in recognition of MLK Day?
Salary range for IR Sr. associate at $10B+ fund?
My team has grown and is having its first social division, which seems to be falling along gender lines. Any tips for keeping us all as one team?
Are Zoom's privacy issues a threat to their growth or market performance? I think they could easily get this out of headlines, most people are too busy worrying about 'rona to push on this
Where do you work, and what educational benefits does your employer provide? Currently working full time and taking some classes toward my master’s. I’ve been at my firm for a little over 2 years as it was my first gig out of undergrad. It provides an annual stipend for education, but I’m bored, unchallenged, unfulfilled, and underpaid. I want to explore what other companies offer to make an educated decision as to whether I should go elsewhere. TIA!
I’m quitting after returning from maternity leave. I’ll go back for at least 1 month first (March). It’s the right thing for my family but I feel bad because I got hired pregnant, worked (see below)
Sr. DIgital Strategist Opportunity - for NYC agency. P&G brands - fun categories. Salary to $115k. 4+ years of experience. Please send your resume to email@example.com. Thanks so much and looking forward to connecting. The person you’ll report to is great!
How many of you are the only woman at your firm/practice group? I’m at a large firm, but part of a smaller practice group (<10 associates). We have female partners, but I’m the only female associate in our group. I’ve become friends with one of the other associates. Someone recently joked that I’m his “work wife.” This really bothered me. I don’t think of our relationship as romantic at all. This is mostly just a rant, but can we please retire this term?
Looking for honest opinions: why does everyone seem to hate Deloitte? I’m an experienced hire who joined Deloitte this year. Things have felt pretty normal so far, but I want to be sure my eyes are open. I’ve been told to buckle up once covid/WFH is over the culture will revert back to the way it was. I don’t scare easily and information is power. Thanks in advance!
Currently having two offers. 1. HCL with 13lpa 2. Tiger analytics with 14Lpa Which one would be better in WLB growth and culture. Location : chennai 4.5 YOE
Does anyone know if the international development-related govt agencies (USAID, World Bank, UN, DFC) are allowing remote hires right now after covid? Considering applying to jobs there but I want to stay in Chicago where I’m currently based.

Hey guys, so I was debating with my gf earlier and she claimed that folks in finance, consulting or IT should be able to afford a 700K condo in about 3 years after graduating from college (assuming absolutely no parental help and having to pay for everything). Is this true? 😂 Deloitte McKinsey & Company Bain & Company
