Are these kind of layoffs typically just in specific groups in specific markets? Or are these typical ways of clearing out underperformers? Idk I’m just an intern with too many questions

Deets please

Not low performers, this week's layoffs are business related.

What are these business reasons?

P5: what group?

Utilities

We are hiring a lot of PwC people right now, I assume the good ones left and they need to fire the hangers on.

EY1: refer me too? I just survived because I was in the ‘safe zone'

Which advisory group are the layoffs occurring?? I haven’t heard anything

First year here as a general staff accountant. Midsize. Been asking scheduling for work but only managed to get 10 hours of billable work last week doing a couple 1040s...

For the past 2 years I’ve been scrambling for digital projects at Accenture and even took management and data projects (neither I was qualified to do, but the teams needed help) to avoid too much time on the bench and getting fired- I’ve been working for almost 4 yrs but I only just got a 20% raise to $85k. When I see people here talk about making way way more for less experience, I wonder if I’m being underpaid. And how would I start a negotiation for a raise or look for other opportunities??

At what salary point did you feel “content” if ever? At $90k, and I’ve always figured once I got to $200k I’d be “good” and chill out, thoughts on that?

How soon is too soon to leave? I started my first real gig in advertising as a junior at a small agency about six months ago.

I’m being interviewed for a mid-level position at a bigger, better agency, but don’t want to cut bait unless it’s the right move. What should I do??

Honest question. How is A&M’s transaction/capital markets advisory business model competitive from a client perspective? For example, if I was a CFO considering an IPO, the main reason for going to a non-Big 4 for the IPO readiness work would be to save on fees. If word got out that the rates I was quoted were to fund the team’s 6 figure bonuses, you better believe I’d put more pricing pressure on the firm to slash their rates. Asking because I’m genuinely considering applying to A&M.
