My boss called me in today to tell me layoffs are coming and I will be on the chopping block. How do I show my worth as a last ditch effort?
I know this industry is unstable, so just wondering about emergency funds. How long could you last if you got laid off for awhile ?
There's a month long gap in your resume because you got laid off. What's the best way to spin that?
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.
This is why creatives are (and should be) getting fired in droves. Trying to be clever to other creatives doesn’t sell products. https://www.adweek.com/brand-marketing/burger-kings-moldy-whopper-is-disgusting-according-to-social-media-analysis/
Does anyone else feel like some of the recent layoffs are premature? Especially with the President’s reopening guidelines today. I feel that agencies could of held on to employees longer.
The trades might want to look into the fact that almost all of the people laid off from VaynerMedia have been minorities
Which of the holding companies do you think treats their employees best? I’m thinking pay, promotions, effort to avoid layoffs, etc.
For the first time in 2 years I’m feeling hopeful again. Dare I say happy. I was laid off, big agency network, with a truck load of international awards, over 40, interviewed non stop, got ghosted ...
Next time your company has layoffs... https://www.nzherald.co.nz/business/news/article.cfm?c_id=3&objectid=12267350
Posting your or your team’s One Club short listing in the time of COVID layoffs. Inspiring or insensitive?
Half my team got laid off and while I’m grateful to have my job still, I feel like I’m drowning in the additional work. All of their responsibilities have been assigned to me, the most junior person on the team. When I brought up that this was a bit much for one person/didn’t think this was sustainable (hinting at the fact that some of the other existing team members should pick some of the laid off peoples’ work), team lead went off on what I’m sure he thought was an inspiring speech about...
My heart isn’t in what I‘m doing right now..how do I break it to my team that I’m going to start exploring other options without getting fired on the spot or have them freak out or get upset with me?
I think I’m potentially about to be fired this week in retaliation from my boss...what should I do?
I’ve been laid off a couple of times in my career (8 years in the biz), but this most recent time was a total shock to me. I was at a good agency, and I had been doing some of the best work (con’t)...
Just got the axe, it’s weirdly nice to be laid off via Zoom and not walk the plank to HR and have everyone see me publicly crying. Time to crack a beer for sure.
Does anyone know for sure if EY is having new managers training in Orlando again this year? Or is that getting cut like everything else at this firm? :-/
Whenever I send out an email to recruiters with the slightest amount of nuance or personality, only to be met with a no response, I feel like the biggest ass hole in the world. It's like that quiet embarrassment you feel when tripping over yourself in a crowded place and noticing no one cared or noticed.
Does anyone know what interviews with Amazon for tax is like? I heard it’s very intense but I just wanted to confirm with someone with first hand experience.
Tesla cybertruck, who placed an order and why? I’m down 8 rounds of scotch, and I just did. Damn Apple Pay!
How long does it usually take to hear back from recruiters after cold applying to online postings? Feeling discouraged after a couple of weeks.
Why do people enter MMDDYYYY in file names? Doesnt YYYYMMDD make WAY more sense for sortability?
Received 4 farewell emails this week, all great talents and left for better opportunities. Happy for them but sad for me that I'm losing my contacts in the firm
Hello, I have an offer from Capgemini Invent in Chicago. What should I expect in terms of salary/year? Would that be enough to live comfortably? I live in Europe with w a wife but no kids, never lived in the US. Also, I heard US consultants travel every week, is is also the case in Chicago? We don't travel that much in Europe..thanks for helping out!
Ladies, I have been facing a weird situation at work. My manager promises things to client with a day’s turnaround and even my senior manager agrees to that. It is in reality lot of manual work and it takes time. I tried to explain in a nicer way saying it can be done but the product might have quality issues. I got responses from my manager like- oh you are inefficient or incompetent. There is basically no winning, burnt is on me again if there are quality issues. I am tired and exhausted. :(
Wondering where the disconnect between clients and timing around deliverables comes from. More and more in hearing that agencies aren't working fast enough, even when working at breakneck speed.
How rare is it to get above on all three impact indicators? Is this like getting a 1 in the old system?
