When do I begin adjusting? It’s been 4 months. I joined as an associate and I feel like sometimes my work is sloppy or I’m overwhelmed. I’ve gotten feedback that I’m making progress but that sounds fake. I’ve also gotten feedback that my work is sometimes sloppy. The last report I helped write had a ton of write ups on it. Feels like I’m about to get fired.

Yea I figured. Just can’t help but feel like a complete liability sometimes. Makes my imposter syndrome go into overdrive tbh

It took me a year to get comfortable and I came in as a Senior from audit. Trust me that it takes a while but it will click. Like the others said, more reps! Like any job.

Tbh, the audit learning curve is a cakewalk compared to the curve in FDD

It’s taken me over a year to feel more comfortable. Definitely a larger learning curve for FDD

This gives me hope, as a campus hire who joined in January I feel so stupid at times

Laid off in July 2020 and have a standing offer to join a company I'm not crazy about. Is it better to take the role, continue search on side, but be faced with external companies asking why I'm looking to leave so soon? Or, decline and keep searching?

I've noticed an uptick in jobs since the new year and no issues getting interviews. Financially, UC ran out and stressing a bit on tapping savings but still in a decent position.

I feel like I havent been performing to my best potential at work and I know it’s starting to show and my coworkers can probably recognize it. My boss just gave me some feedback and I am having a hard time not going down the rabbit hole of negative self talk. Any feedback on receiving constructive feedback from team ? How do you not feel insecure about your job ? I feel like I am going to get fired if I keep this up but maybe it’s a good thing I’ve recognized it now before it’s too late ?!

Assuming an economic downturn/recession will happen in the near future (1-2 years), how do “safe” do you view jumping from your company to a smaller consulting company?

I’m in the final rounds with a small consulting firm based in TX, but unsure if jumping would be the wisest choice given the current economic conditions — of course, staying at Accenture does not mean I’m not at risk of being laid off if things take a turn for the worst.

Not sure if this is the right step but I’m a little desperate since I was laid off about a month ago and now finally landed a PM interview. As part of the process, i have to complete a take home assessment, which I have completed. Will it be possible for someone here to review my assessment and give feedbacks before I present it to the hiring manager so that I get all corners covered? It would be a HUGE help. Thank you!

Looking at 1400 hours year-end. I’ve consistently asked for work and recently let a couple partners know that’s it’s clear I won’t be making hours. Aside from the convo that I initiated, nobody has ever said anything to me about it, which is weird since they have access to hours. I’m sure it will be a topic at my review, but how likely that I’ll get fired during/shortly after my review?

We all have down days, many of us straight up depressed days. How do you survive and overcome such days? I’m hoping to get some actionable suggestions other than therapy.

I see many strong ppl fight through this better. Help!
