My agency had layoffs & told an AS that they “support” him changing his own title to Account Director for job searching purposes. He’s been an AS for 3yrs here+5yrs prev job. Should I say something??

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.

Regarding layoffs, would anyone accept a pay cut to keep their current position? I wonder if that’s a viable solution when you have to cut costs, but also want to keep reasonably talented people.
