Why would anyone under the age of 25 want to work for a holding company advertising agency? Inbred corruption. History of not hiring people of color. Or hiring them and making them ‘write White’. The history of abusing defrauding and demeaning women. Currently in the middle of a huge ageism epidemic. Human resources that reports right back to managers. Under paying staff while overcharging clients. These agencies will die from lack of clients but even quicker from lack of new talent.

So what’s the story with all of these very senior diversity and inclusion officers at many of the big advertising agencies? Have they accomplished the hiring of more diverse staff? Or are they just for show? Ours has been here for a few years and there hasn’t been one more African American strategic planner, creative, or account executive hired in that time. Has this position made a difference for people?

Not sure if it is Covid related or burnout from accelerating work in tax, but does anybody have a personal success story on how to re-energize as a staff? Or once you have checked out mentally is there no turning back? I have just stopped caring as much as I did even as recently as a month ago, with a growing pile of work sitting with me, and I want to figure out how to get back in the mindset that helped me succeed before. Currently a TC2 expecting to transition into Senior TC role.

Interested in applying to other Big 4, but as a staff (1-2 YOE) I feel like I don't know a lot and worry about getting offers, but I feel like I'll grow more outside my current role. (Cont'd)

Me and my SO make $320k, we have a child with special needs and we live in expensive Boston suburb, because of the public school system. We’ve been renting 2BDR 1500 sq feet for the past 6 years, our current rent is $3100, and our lease expires in the end of June. Landlord wants to know if we plan to renew for the same price. We can potentially look into buying kinda fixer-upper, ask for lower price or move out into bigger house. Thoughts?

A ban on big business’ efforts to merge with or acquire distressed small businesses will help protect markets from corporate control, but alone it won’t be enough. Other necessary steps include bolstering the small business-oriented Paycheck Protection Program and freezing utility payments. And, of course, small businesses will still have the option of combining to survive this crisis—the merger moratorium would apply only to those giant businesses receiving money through a federal institution.
