How bad is it if you get laid off/fired for low performance? Is this career suicide? What happens if you try to get another job?
No longer at PwC, working in industry as of January.. Hired in as AVP, surpassed all expectations.. as a result they laid off my boss and gave me ALOT more responsibility.. spoke to HR and they said..
I just got back from mat leave at Deloitte and am on a part time project ending this month...how long will I be on the bench before I get laid off? 3 months? 6 months? I’m worried and stressed.
Layoffs at VSA Partners today in Chicago and NYC. 25 people. Don't worry, though, because almost all of the director level and execs didn't get cut! Phew! Only largely senior level designers! (Yes, being sarcastic.)
Does PWC plan to have any layoffs? Is it true there no layoffs during the housing recession 2008-2010?
Just got laid off. Still trying to process it all...but I wanted to know if anyone else has experienced this in any stage of their career and some next steps and coping strategies/advice
A stranger puts a gun to your head and says "I will kill you unless you get yourself fired from your current firm in the next 24 hours." How do you save yourself FB?
Has anyone here filed for unemployment in California? I got laid off 2 weeks ago and at the time was seeing projections online that the fed govt pmts would only cover about 25 million ppl (not sure how accurate that is). My claim is still pending with CA but the total amount projected per week is only $400; doesn’t include an extra $600 fed govt pmt. Does anyone know if the $600 gets added somewhere else in the process? I hope I didn’t just miss out because I was lay-off 25,000,001
If you're on a PiP, is it better to quit just before the end stage, when you get fired, or better to get fired and collect unemployment, but also have a company-based termination on your record
If you’re not promoted within the general timeline (ie 2-3 years to senior, etc...) is it safe to assume that you will either be coached out or fired?
Would taking up more work decrease your odds of being laid off in a recession (assuming performance, and all else stay the same)? Assuming your current workload is 100%. This is for industry
Got laid off s couple years ago. Was told we’d lost an account so the money to pay me with wasn’t there any more. Three others were also laid off the same day. Agency was also full of mean, petty...
I am proud to say that my firm did the right thing today. Instead of Associate salary cuts or layoffs, they suspended equity partner share payments and suspended hiring and spending. A plus.
How do you talk to your boss when your job has evolved to something very different from what you were hired to do and you’re not happy without getting fired or phased out?
I ask via email a Managing Director to include me in a discussion, or to approve a spend and don't get any response. Is it a polite way for them to say no? In my country this is just disrespectful.

I’m a recent college hire and my Manager on my project has delegated a lot of work to me that I feel like an experienced senior associate or even an M should be doing. She walks me through everything I need to do but has said she wants me to be the person our project team go to even if that means I go back to her for support. Is this her way of teaching me or am I being take advantaged?
Does anyone know of anywhere hiring either junior or mid level copywriters in NYC? Open to remote as well, since we’re all WFH anyway. Asking for a friend. I’m my friend.
