How is the business going for all you consultants? Are your companies getting new projects? Any layoffs ?
I am curious to hear your honest thoughts. I don’t know what other firms have done but my firm has fired people, furloughed people, cut pay, delayed promotions and hire dates, etc. but also has allocated a chunk of change above what has been given in the past to support social justice causes. While I support the cause I wonder how associates feel about this when frankly some of it is at their expense?

I’m a Junior accountant, recent MBA grad in Finance, located in NYC, just got laid off due to a merger. Anybody hiring or know any opening positions?
Have an average book at best. Somehow an okay agency hired and then fired me. I acquired lots of credit card debt in a short amount of time. Now I don’t feel I’ll get a chance again. I really don’t want to work menial job again but that seems it will soon be my only option.
Hi Ladies, I was impacted by the COVID-19 layoffs a few weeks ago and let go from my job at Deloitte. I have 2 years experience as an IT Auditor with the big 4 and I am in search of a new job. I’m currently residing in Atlanta Any recommendations on where to apply would be greatly appreciated.
My partner (along with his team) has been laid off from an equity research role. He is on H1b visa and has until end of February to find a new job otherwise he’ll have to leave the country. I would be very grateful if someone knows of any sell-/buyside investment analyst opportunities and can refer, please. Years of experience: 9yrs. Always been with II-ranked teams and twice voted rising star. Thank you very much for your time and consideration.
Sorry to hear this, CP+B’ers...have some friends there who are safe for now, is this the last of layoffs there (CO and LA)? http://www.adweek.com/agencyspy/cpb-cuts-3-percent-of-staff-in-boulder-and-l-a-as-part-of-larger-restructuring/143982
Is PwC still continuing with layoffs?
hey all, i’m 3 years into my career. some decent work produced, some awards (mostly student). after getting laid off last fall and many many applications and emails sent, I’ve decided to spend time and money on a creative PR stunt to get my dream agencies’ attention. I’ve decided I don’t want to settle any longer, and I’m ready to make the jump to the elite. so people that have made it to their dream agencies: when did it happen for you, what made it happen, and was it everything you hoped for?
First year associate here - really freaked out by FS layoffs and think I might be next. How am I supposed to find another job after 6 months?
I don't understand the concept of receiving a 4 on Year End (and getting laid off). There is no set percentage to give people 4's and 5's right? How does one mess up that badly?
What happens if you’re an associate and you’re fired for “performance” suddenly. You had a performance review the week before and their was no talk of this. How do you perceive this?

How can I get into global services?
Just started as an associate in ibanking, can someone please provide the unspoken rules of ibanking? Wasn’t fortunate enough to join with rest of the new hires over orientation this summer and working remote has not helped with being able to normally reach out to another guy by the cube and ask for advice especially since I’m the new guy. Thanks in advance!!!
Anyone at ORD wants to get a drink?
Question: I’ve seen so many women get in mommy mode and throw their hobbies, careers, everything to the side as soon as a baby arrive. I don’t want to do that and in my mind I feel that I’ll still get to be myself. Does being a mom naturally make you lose your previous identity? It’s hard enough trying to move up within our roles but is this naturally in us?
How hard should you actually work in consulting? Obviously we have utilization requirements so we work long hours but I’m tired of giving 100% of my brain power. Is there any benefit of working harder? IMO there’s an incentive to work slower

Production, lighting experts or just anyone who’s figured it out. Tips & tricks for home office lighting (for my face) for video calls? Depending on time of day, my face is either over exposed super glaring white or dark shadows look like a hostage in a closet. I have two big screens in front on my and I think computer glare makes it worse. Advice welcome!
Does anyone know any good tactics for a lead gen campaign? Client is mad that no leads have come through and Paid Search has been terrible
Reviewing resumes and I see more and more frequent that people last one year or less at a job and move on to the next. Is that the new norm? I’m a millennial but my last job I was with for over 4 years. Can I ask in the interview why they’ve moved around so much? Or find a nicer way of asking that. I’m definitely looking for longevity not a hopper.

I feel like this is a big fat no: I left Deloitte in 2019. In 2019 I traveled to two states for work...is there a way to get Deloitte to reimburse me for the $110 I’m about to pay to TurboTax?

That moment when you walk out of a second round at a job you want, are told you're moving onto the next round, and also receive an email that you're now staffed after weeks on the bench 🙄
