I have been in the industry for ~ 20 years, career slowed down when I went part time to raise a family and care for aging parents and when I moved to Milwaukee, I took a demotion. I was part of Covid layoffs and have been applying for an Account Director role. When I looked on LinkedIn, the company has a lot of young people at VP level. How do I negotiate for that after the fact? What does VP mean at your company?
My boss got laid off at the beginning of this year and I’ve been doing both my job and his job on the agency’s largest account. (He was the account director) In searching his email for necessary...
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??
Recently got a raise (putting me at 68k). Turned down an offer for 75k to stick it out and company said they can’t match. Management sup was laid off. Account director just quit. Need more $$. ADVICE?
Dear fellow swimmers- Just got laid off as Account Director and am looking for new position in Chicago. Appreciate leads you can share - and am happy to connect confidentially. Am a single mom.
RAed after 22 years of service. They only offered one month severance pay. Is that right or should I be getting more than one month?
Saw this on LI, thought it was applicable to many of the posts I've seen about how PwC/D are trying to deny layoffs and say the separations are performance-based. http://www.forbes.com/sites/lizryan/2016/06/07/my-performance-review-was-outstanding-and-then-i-got-fired/#6227cb81746a
Got laid off a few months ago, now got a job with a 12% raise at the big FB. Dreams do come true you guys, don't give up ❤️
Was “separated” from my agency today along with other employees in a mass layoff via conference call. Any words of encouragement? It’s my first time being let go 😕
Serious question: What's the reasoning behind all the Deloitte layoffs? End of Fiscal Year, Sells are bad, just curious....
any insight into the environment at Grant Thornton? I have heard they are having layoffs and their reviews on Glassdoor have been less than stellar lately (ex. “aggressive” “egocentric” atmosphere).
Just got an email from a partner asking to discuss the results of my CRT in the office tomorrow. I have high utilization but that doesn't seem to mean much. Am I being laid off?
On tough days, ask yourself, what’s the worse that could happen? Bad review, getting fired, embarrassing yourself. There’s always opportunity to right the wrongs and if not then find another job!
Got scheduled for a random MD chat tomorrow. Wish me luck. My heart just sank, but I knew this might happen due to lower chargeability. Ironic since yesterday I dreamt I got laid off.
I see a lot of people condemning others for being critical or harsh towards Leadership at their agency, and I want to know why? We should be holding our Leaders to the highest standards and not feel bad about it, because they do the same to us and we are the ones being laid off or passed over for promotions/raises when we don’t meet their expectations, not them. Because indirectly when we fail, oftentimes it is more of a failure of Leadership than just one individual.
More layoffs at VaynerMedia this week. I've survived 3 rounds in less than a year.... maybe this time I start looking for another job?
Deloitte tax projecting double digit (percentage) decrease to top and bottom line for FY21 - at least our office / region. Based on that, layoffs seem necessary. Fortunate that the folks laid off hit the market first; if the revenue decrease is truly that significant, have to imagine all other firms will be making the same difficult decisions.
Just curious what is (if any) the severance pay in case you get laid off from your firm due to a market slowdown.
Best feeling is landing an offer with a 40% raise before layoff, then getting the HR/Partner invite and telling them they could've saved $25k severance because you were about to quit the next day. 😂
Do you all typically write cover letters for cold applications to online portals? Hiring managers, do you actually read cover letters?
Campus hire. Few months late but enrolling in my 401K and going to do a Roth, as well. I keep seeing that you should “maximize” both. What does that mean? Is there a calculation or common principle?
What’s the max that someone who is making $2600 a month post tax should spend on rent? Context: sibling is starting out in commission role so this number is the minimum they’d be making, they have emergency fund already, car/insurance paid for by work. They don’t know anyone in the area to live with but studios/1B in decent areas start at $1300

How difficult would it be to find a brown person who would wanna adopt kids instead of having our own? Most guys I talk to are understandably not very open to that idea but wanted to see if people on this bowl would be open to it. This can help me determine if it’s possible. Please comment if you would be up for it and your gender and age. Thank you 😊
How can you tell if your agency would practice clawback if you were to quit after maternity leave? Is there certain terminology in the employee handbook that would indicate so? Any advice and help is welcome.
Bad management on my project is making me constantly miserable. Discussions have not worked, and I keep getting blocked when trying to roll off. Hoping there's a light at the end of the tunnel.

Recruiter asked me where I was living and I told her the nearest big city to my house. She then asked if I lived in the city or the suburbs. Besides homes office do they ask this to see if you should get a higher/lower salary depending on your response?
