I believe June 3rd +- a day every year.... Do you really think leadership has "layoff season"? Their goal is to hire/staff optimally so there won't always be one.

No more big layoffs. Managed attrition has been higher than usual so there is no need for big wave

Based on last NA announcements looks like numbers are getting better, still lot of work to do, but no big layoff planned for now...

There's no true layoff season but people do tend to get counseled out more this time of year than at other times (other than nov/dec) as we are 3 months out from year end. I haven't heard of any counseling out yet in mass.... but my practice is fully staffed....

How's Edelman NY? Getting hit up for Health which I've never done. It'll entail moving from advertising to PR/earned creative as they call it, and the Health category. Didn't sound like hard sell pharma, quite a bit of branded video content. I searched on FB, sounded mostly negative culturally (employee fired during Pride month, political, creatives better watch their backs, climate denier) with a few who love it. Figured I'll ask if anything's changed, if it's even worth ... considering.

Given all the recent buzz about expected large raises around the big 4, I’d like to level set on the average salary for a 4th/5th year female senior manager in federal tax ( credits & methods group) in the Midwest - Chicago/Minneapolis/Detroit market. Anyone willing to share a range if they work in a similar area of tax / similar level? I recognize all groups vary greatly in salary expectations, so looking for input specific to my area. Current expectations set at 140-160k. Reasonable?
