Well you could turn down the project and see if lack of utilization gets you a layoff

Why do so many ppl think they will get laid off with severance. It's called being fired for performance and you won't get severance. Laid off happens when a company is performing poorly and needs to get rid of employees...

BA1: just negotiate a signing bonus that pays for the tuition assistance you owe. Not worth being laid off or fired just for that.

Cohtatd on the success, OP. It sounds like the business is taking off. I wouldn't tell anybody that that's how you spent your summer vacation. The firm may want it.

It wasn't the classiest move @p2, but taking up space isn't a possibility at a firm like ours. I hope you realize that, unless you want to continually drink the firm kool-aid. Sure it hurts my brand on work ethic, but I made it very clear that I didn't want to stay in my industry and still worked my ass off on projects. No brand damage there. Don't know what you mean by others reputation either.

Do you have another offer lined up?

Is this just an emotional reaction to a CRT conversation?

Uh this is a weird question

Calm down and take a deep breath. I was also feeling upset after meh CRT conversation, but gather yourself then take next steps.

Why are there so many of these unethical questions on this app

Not actually going to do this. Not all offers are equal. Boss Allen's LOW process blurs the line between performance and demand response.

My bad for the late reply yall. I've been working at night to start my own company and took vacation to work on it full time - this is not an emotional post-CRT decision. Looks like the only option is to quit on Monday.

What is crt?

CRT is career round table, promotion talks by partners... OP. If you give it your second best, I seriously hope you receive that karma later. You are literally taking up space, potentially harming the reputations of those around you, and betraying your brand...

Hey Fb friends - need an advise. My current firm hasn’t stated my GC process yet and with current processing time it appears to be somewhere around 12-15 months time to get PERM approved.

On other hand, I have approved i40 from my ex-employer (Big4) who fired me last fall, I don’t know if they will hire me back.

Now I find out he might’ve been laid off and I can’t help but to think it was my fault. We never really talked after this engagement but I feel like it’s my clumsiness that him fired and it makes me feel guilty and give a me anxiety.

Word of warning, check your employee handbook about unused PTO. Apparently in New York State, even with labor laws protecting unpaid PTO, if it’s written in any employee handbook or material that unused PTO is waived when you quit, that‘s all the employer has to do to get out of paying you.

Hi everyone! I recently accepted a new job with a Big 4 and am also newly engaged. I have a couple of concerns… the main one being that I may not have enough time off for 2022 to cover taking off for the wedding, honeymoon, and then a couple of other weddings where I’m supposed to be a bridesmaid. Do you think there would be any wiggle room with managers allowing time off, or is it generally pretty strict? (Continued in comments)
