Coronavirus Work-life

Why have layoffs occurred at firms such as RSM and not Big Four? Serious question.

All of these answers are missing that the middle market of industry is way more impacted than F500 right now. Large cap companies may be facing declining profits but by and large mid and small companies will face a much quicker and more severe liquidity crunch.

Big Four was really bloated with non sense. They were able to cut that first, followed by eliminating bonuses and perks. Next will be the layoffs.

Nonsense still exists at Big4s - I dont think they will ever shed that.

Any advice on how to handle getting fired without notice? Literally found out the day of...a couple days after I said I was going to need to start billing for OT. I was working almost every day until 3am and weekends since the pandemic hit and my lunch hour was never respected. Was there for a year as permalance. This is in NY.

Need some insight: if you’re about to leave for a competing firm, should you give 2 weeks notice (and risk being fired/escorted off the premise) or simply quit without giving notice?

That moment when one idiot replies all to group of literally 1,000s of employees and then 50 people reply to be removed or tell them they replied all. Tempted to reply all "you're all fired".

Hill Holliday in Boston laid off a bunch of people and so far, by my count, it's 13 women 3 men. 4 working moms. 1 woman 6 months pregnant. And most of the creative layoffs were women??

Company had a restructuring and a co-worker was let go. She had more experience, did more work, and made less money than others in her department who weren’t let go. Her boss (male) made some comments about wanting to be married to her, her appearance etc. all was rebuffed. She was told when let go it was about efficiency but he made the final call on who from the team got cut. I think she should at least consult an employment attorney but she’s worried about losing the severance. How do I help?

If you got a bad first performance review (actually bad, so figure a 1 or 2 out of 5, but no PIP and given the chance to improve, and also told it’s fine because first review), and you’re not getting fired over it, would you put a lot of effort into trying to move firms once you’re able to say you have a year of experience, or would you just try to improve your reputation at the firm you’re already at, since leaving after 1 year isn’t generally ideal?

Hi ladies of fishbowl. I got laid off today and I am trying to find sense in it - I was my agency’s most effective client partner and highest performer, and still I got cut. Any recommendations on what to do?

Laid off at PwC. It was more of a relief than anything. Anyone have any knowledge on openings at smaller (but not necessarily boutique) firms? Human Capital / Change Management related field.

Pharma companies have started laying off employees. Should we be concerned that they will also be spreading less on consulting projects and therefore deeper benches and layoffs on the consulting side?

Hi ladies, What was your personal experience if you had a baby at a more junior level? Think- post-MBA level. Did it delay your promotion to the next level (manager or so)? Did you not want to get promoted bc it was hard to adjust to having a newborn and think about moving up? Also- anyone start a new job where they expected a promo within a year or so and gave birth before the promo? Would love to hear your stories, get any tips/advice. Thanks in advance!

Looking for advice on how to get off a client engagement. I’m on a big audit client that’s year round - notorious for burning good employees out. The managers on the job are difficult to work with and won’t spend the time to actually coach people. I’ve been working crazy hours trying to get everything done they ask of me while still making sure to coach and assist other staff/seniors but it’s been too much for me to handle. I’ve gotten good reviews thus far but want to ask to come off the job.
