What's the deal with all these layoffs in big 4? Is this common? (Coming from a non big 4 guy, considering moving to big 4, but not all that excited after seeing the layoffs)

They don't typically fire people who don't deserve it (hiring failure, stupid, lazy, etc). Wouldn't worry too much about it if you aren't one of those.

D1. Seems like this year the D cut deeper than PY. Even some 3s were let go.

Don't think this is actually a thing here in NYC

Anyone hiring those who have been out of work for a year? I took time off to tend to personal matters, but I am now looking to get back into the workforce again. My previous experience includes time at B4 audit up to senior level and then transitioned to manager in industry. Senior/manager roles are preferred.

I don’t mind audit. However, I’d prefer it not to be at a B4, as I am looking for some semblance of a work life balance.

DM me if you have something above, thanks.
