This is truely the nature of the BIG Firm, to live and die by the BIG layoff. You didn't mention by numbers how many staff are employed there? IF over 1000 people, 10 is only 1%, so yes it seems like alot but if a BIG project goes down and nowhere to reassign them, that is where the BIG hurt comes first. I had seen it happen this way where a the BIGGEST firm went from 1200 to less than 600 back in the early 1980s. Heads down and thumbs up for most working there just to stay alive. More of this will be forthcoming in the rocky 2004's ecomomy.

CPA is a good firm and BIG firm with a BIG decision to make about maintaining Good Business.
