My brother has been out of work for a few weeks after a layoff, waiting for a likely job to finally get all the paperwork done... Now I'm nervous they're going to pull the plug on this job because all of NYC is tanking. He's been living off savings waiting for this job to come through. Told him to start making backup plans, but he's young and not as scrappy as I am. I'd be delivering Amazon/Uber eats from the day I was laid off till the day I started my new job.

I'm not a citizen so can't be as scrappy either. I have to head home and hope this all blows over and I can land a job back here.

If you get fired from Deloitte (or similar), what would they say in a background check? Would they say “would not rehire” or something like that? Anyone have any issues with this?

Why shouldn’t same standards apply if you threaten to resign - irrespective of your race or gender or the type of research you do. Pretty sure I’d get fired if I used “threaten to resign” as my mode to get something

Big Four consultants, what is your firm’s policy for this year on promotions, raises, bonuses, layoffs? At PwC there’s a freeze on raises, minimal promotions and smaller bonuses. Pay-cut for partners. No layoffs, at least in the near future.
