Do you think independent agencies will be in better shape to handle COVID-related client budget reductions and/or losses? Or does it not matter and layoffs are equal across the board?
How do you tow the fine line between sticking up for yourself and not talking back to a partner? For context, our firm has seemingly started making a paper trail for layoffs and I disagree with some of the emails that I have received. I want to respond in a way that covers my own ass. However, I don’t want to piss anyone off, especially if I have read the situation incorrectly.
If you don’t get promoted to associate and get fired, what should you do? I'm a second year analyst on a team that is very overweight Associates. Seems like a real possibility.

You’re given a choice 30% HIGHER PAY at a cut throat agency. We are talking layoffs and politics 24/7. Big clients. tier 3 agency, low-marke rate with an AMAZING TEAM. No drama but no big clients.

One teacher is actively trying to get another teacher fired. She’s gone to the principal, higher up, w/all sorts of unfounded complaints. Is there anything that can be done? Legally? HR? Union?

We’re hiring a freelance brand manager. This is perfect for someone with 2-4 years experience, reporting to a Brand Supe. I’d love to give preference reviewing resumes & applications to someone laid off recently due to C19. It’s remote for now, but should be someone who would like someday to be in the Bay Area, and does not require visa sponsorship. Please share with your network! Joanna.Serna@argonautinc.com
Firm layoffs remind me of when Joe Pesci got smoked in Goodfellas. Walks into a room thinking he's getting promoted and then..."There are three parties on the line, including you."
My fiancé is on a h1b, I’m a USC. She just lost her job and I’m thinking of pushing the legal work for the marriage ahead so she can get a GC. Does anyone know what the process is for it and if there’s a situation where we can realistically avoid her traveling back to India right now?

Getting the best room in the Parsipanny Sheraton cause you check in late and there are no more regular rooms. I can host the morning stand up in here.
Some of our team members have requested more WFH flexibility- a few days each week. Not sure how to handle this, any perspective?
Any advice for achieving work/life balance in advertising? Or has anyone left the industry to pursue better work/life balance, and successfully found it? If so, what was your path? I’ve been at couple of agencies during my career, but inevitably end up grinding myself into the ground no matter where I end up. The WFH during quarantine has pushed things to a new level where it feels like I need to change something to sustain my mental health & relationships.
