I’m at an agency that just went through several rounds of layoffs. It often seems like staff have no recourse when the layoffs hit. How could a staff union assist in that situation?
Had a meeting today with leadership team where I got to know about layoffs at our company. They eliminated some excess roles and targeted "low performers" he assured me and my team is unaffected and there is no reason to be worried. But looking back, I went through this during peak covid time and still regret the decision that I didn't look for opportunities at that time.
Now, not sure to start looking as I hear layoff's at many firms and an expected recession around the corner. Any thoughts??
Hi! I’m a senior graphic designer newly laid off looking for a new in-house creative position. Let me know, thanks
I just got laid off and I’m shell shocked. Please share some encouraging stories or just some advice because I feel like I’m drowning right now. Or if you have any advice.
Pretty sure I’m getting laid off tomorrow morning. Our company was acquired and now I’ve got a meeting at 8am with head of HR & our VP to “discuss next steps” for my position. I wish they’d just put it in an email and save me the next 24 hrs of stressing but here we are.. any advice on questions, etc I should prepare before tomorrows meeting? Talk about worst time of year to lose your job 😭 I’m also expecting so it’s adding to my stress. Ugh.
Good luck to all those affected by the downturn and layoffs! If a referral to EY US could be helpful feel free to DM
Are company layoffs good or bad for business for the people who's jobs are staying? My company of about 200 people just let 15 people go. Is this a good sign or bad sign? I'm 27F with about 5 years experience at this company. Does this lead to more room for growth at this stage of my career or is this a red flag?
Hubs is starting to interview for senior legal roles. Hasn’t had a haircut during covid, and it’s curly and fantastic. Looks awesome. Does he need to cut it to appear “professional?” (He was laid off in April, so we’re getting anxious)
Would you rather:
Be laid off unexpectedly with an immediate termination date but you have a severance package.
Have three weeks notice the end of your contract is up and won’t be renewed but have no benefits because you’re a contractor?
Currently going through the latter and curious how others who have lost (or will lose) their job would feel.
Is it normal to get fired for missing things in corporate/m&a due diligence doc review?

When hired as an athletic coach, does your position state “temporary?” Even if coached at the same school for several years.. It doesn’t make sense to me that coaches are year-to-year. Doesn’t help athletes. Since the CSEA got it approved that classified employees need to go through the same steps as certificated employees, regarding layoffs. LACOE wants to have coaches not be considered classified or certificated, just temporary. With no Union, no voice, no respect, no appreciation, no rights.
Shadow fired from v25 firm job today (2nd year associate/Class of 2019) - given 3 months to find a new job.
Somewhat blindsided, but firm seems supportive in helping me catch on somewhere. Had my struggles, but feel like I can still cut in big law if I'm given another opportunity. Any advice/words of encouragement would be welcomed.

Anyone else have trouble with feeling nauseous/dizzy at the worst moments? I was diagnosed with a form of syncope (apparently common in young women) when I was 13. Years later it’s gotten worse and I can’t even sit through socials/dinners at restaurants without needing to go outside for fresh air.

Desi fam - what are your views on Indian matchmaking? Is it perpetuating outdated stereotypes regarding the role of men/women and their expectations or is matchmaking the right approach for a majority of desis - be they in India or overseas?
I took the EQ test (Emotional intelligence) and scored over 110 on each section except for the 'Self Regard' section (scored 80). I am the first in my family to finish college and work as an engineer. I didn't come from a privileged family and hustled all my life to get to where I am. I believe I have done pretty well for a 25 year old. Yet I don't think I am valuable, most times I talk so fast because I feel like I am wasting people's time. I am having a hard time dealing with all this.
Don't threaten me with a good time

Does anyone know acceptance rates at big 4 type firms versus boutiques? Most assume big 4 are harder to get into and more prestigious than boutiques or lower level firms. I’m at a mid tier firm so I’m fairly neutral in this. I’ve worked with highly intelligent, and highly incompetent, consultants from either type of firm. Would love to hear your thoughts on this and any data you have. Sometimes I wonder why big 4 is so highly revered when work products I review are less than stellar.
