Stop shaming people for leaving on time. Working overtime every nite benefits no one if you’re exhausted. It’s not a badge of honor either. Work on your time management skills.

I’ve laid off people I haven’t even hired. Two of my interns were literally born yesterday. Theres already a line item in your current paycheck for our 401K, since you’ll work here in 7 short years.

Just looked at my 401k and already lost upwards of 25K. I know I should keep my money where it is-But really thinking hard about not contributing to my 401k and putting that money into savings account

Got an offer, made a counter, they came back and said they’re keeping their offer where it is. Jobs ok. Could use the benefits. Offer was below market. Thoughts?

I just discovered a sizable 401k I had forgotten about from a job I left in 2015 (Publicis NY). I now live in California and am lost on what to do with these funds so I’m not drastically penalized.

My company has a 15% 401k match program. I’ve understood that to mean that they’ll match my contribution up to 15% of my salary. Found out today that it means they’ll add 15% of what I contributed...

Is it stupid for me offer a pay cut to keep my job and benefits? Would the agency higher ups be even open to that if offered? I know it might sound stupid, but just thinking about my family.

I want to start an organization for people with ADD/ADHD in advertising. So many of us have it and actually draw our creativity from it but no one talks about it and how it benefits and hinders us

To all people getting laid off: always apply for unemployment benefits within 7 days of getting laid off. Even if you won’t need it, it’s good to have an option to stay afloat.

What if advertising agencies started a program that allowed employees to take time to volunteer as a healthcare worker and remain paid and insured? Like the family leave act but for our country?
