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
I have been on my SO’s case about drinking. He is unemployed and has been laid off. He has been having drinks 3x a week. One or two glasses a session. I drink 2-3x a month. I say it is too much. He’s Irish and I’ve lived in Ireland. People binge drink the entire weekend until they fall over. Someone who comes home from work drinks one dram of whiskey every night. This is normal. Americans define this as alcoholism.Do you think this is a cultural difference or actual excessive drinking?
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.
TFW you wake up, see no work emails, and immediately convince yourself you're about to get fired.
Is it weird to reach out and check up on ex coworkers who were recently laid off? Had a director I worked with closely laid off and want to reach out to them. Also think I’ll be laid off soon FWIW
Has anyone either been laid off or just switched from Big4 during covid to corporate? Was it difficult? did you still receive a raise? If so, how much?
I got laid off today and need a new job asap. Would love to connect with anyone looking for a junior writer.
I’ve been terminated by my firm. Is there a reason not to sign the separation agreement and accept severance?
Got laid off .... just started in consulting... was trying to learn as fast as I can... but got let go cause there isn’t any projects in the pipeline. Help??!!??
Anyone else rethinking their career options? Simu worked at Deloitte until he was laid off. 🤔
I got fired from Facebook in 2013 and then got a better job at Google (five years now). I want to go back to Facebook, but I'm not sure if they'd consider me again, or if it's even less likely.
Are there going to be layoffs .....
What happens when you get laid off? Do you get to stay until the end of the day? Do you say goodbye to people or try to leave without anyone noticing?
Friend received bonus from google which is 50% of her salary. Seriously consider switching job now
What happened to BCG’s expense policy today?

This past busy season was my second. I anticipate promotion to senior. Do I stick it out one more year or jump ship now? How much difference does it make for industry offers?
Peeps who have the Sloan interview - how are you approaching the extra essay question 2 that’s asking for a data slide in a professional context given all the NDAs we are under?
At this rate, one of these days Ill just shoot myself in the head on one of these lovely Zoom calls, or throw myself off a bridge with a sign around my neck that says “Deloitte made me do it”
I have a case study for a direct lending role coming up. Does anyone have any insight on what direct lending cases are like?
Has anyone been offered a status buy-up for 2021. ~$1700 short of United 1k this year and think my travel will increase a good bit starting next year. Think it could make sense, especially given the 2021 thresholds
Anyone know if companies are doing virtual holiday parties and if so, what are they doing? I’m tasked with planning mine, but if I have to sit on another awkward zoom happy hour I might just explode. Open to suggestions or ideas. My team is spread out internationally, so even sending a stupid “swag” gift is next to impossible.
How many years does one have to spend at a B4 in order for it to really stand out on the resume?
Had a dream last night that every partner at the Big 4 had their name added to their firm’s name. It was miserable providing a list of hundreds of names every time someone asked where I worked...
Looking at exit opportunities and job description says Big 4 experience in addition to helping prepare FS and helping prepare tax forms. I mean in Big 4 you're either in audit or tax.
