These are uncertain times and we are about to endure the worst economic downturn we have ever seen. I have some questions I thought I would ask to the community.
- How likely it is that top consultancies such as MBB, Strategy&, Roland Berger, EY-Parthenon, OC&C etc will decide to lay off consulting employes? These are different companies so feel free to differentiate amongst them
- If they decide to do it, when would they? After how many months of this downturn? If they don't what other steps can they take to stay afloat despite much lower revenues?
- Is there any seniority level more likely to be laid off? E.g. new joiners vs. senior analysts etc.
- How likely is for offers of September starters etc to be rescinded?
Thanks very much and best of luck to all candidates in these difficult times.
