Absolutely. Expect hiring freezes across all levels. I imagine EOY bonuses will also be impacted.

BCW has spot bonuses (max $3K) and merit increases, but only SVP+ gets in the official "bonus pool" for much larger amounts. And BCW has only existed for a little over a year so you may be referencing a Burson program?

Yes, if not layoffs.

@CD3 preparing can still be saving your paycheck even more lately for a lay-off, still updating your resume, and mostly not being shocked and mentally worn down if there’s layoffs or freezes. If you arent aware anything is going to happen you tend to do rash things. Just knowing what you’re getting into is preparedness, to me 😊

I have an interview next week and I live on the west coast (where it’s the worst). We’re not WFH yet and I’ve heard nothing from this company about freezing. A company would let you know that they’re freezing hiring before they make a decision right? Def don’t want to put in my 2 weeks if there’s not another opportunity.

Just submitted a referral, but got this message. Does this mean I'm not getting the bonus? The email I got said the opposite, with a thank you message for the referral.

Regarding Canadian express entry - I m stuck in a situation where my IELTS score expired few weeks back and there are no open test centers in US to retake the exam. At the same time the ITA score are the lowest in last 18 months and I would have certainly received an invite were my score hadn’t expired. Any recommendations?
