Any consulting firms hiring at the analyst level right now? Profile is a business technology analyst, semi target school, < 1 year of experience. Experience primarily with technology transformations, excited about the work and want to stay in the tech consulting space. Unfortunately impacted by COVID related layoffs.....
Hey everybody. Got laid off at D. BTA within strategy and analytics. Mostly LS/HC experience. Anybody can help out with a referral anywhere? Thank you!
I think leveraging an offer to get more money is the worst. Now your bosses know you want to leave, you are the fist option during layoffs and you look like an ass the other company.
Dallas tax layoffs - 9 in BTS (4 SM, 2 mgr, 3 staff). Int and SALT no layoffs yet but expecting EOW.
Finally had the courage to negotiate something and it was my severance package 😂😳😭. Wish me luck, I'll get an answer by EOD today!
It’s getting bad out there. These are expected industries, but feels like it will spillover everywhere.. https://www.forbes.com/sites/lisettevoytko/2020/03/30/coronavirus-layoffs-rent-the-runway-zipcar-latest-to-let-workers-go-amid-pandemic/amp/
Why do some people get laid off and others not? Is it always utilization? Do people typically know they're at risk before it gets to that point?
What % of people in the agency business for 10-12 years have experienced 1 or more layoffs? Just got laid off for the 1st time last week and think it’s more common than I realized.
Anyone have the graphic that someone posted a week or so ago showing what each firm was doing with hiring, layoffs, and comp during this crisis?
I’m finding that a weird side effect of losing my job in this climate is ad agencies taking advantage of my weakened position. They get in touch, proactively or in response to my reaching out, and they want to hire me as they are in good shape. When I reveal I was laid off, the offer changes to freelance or maybe nothing. My work, awards, the fact that they know me and approached me in the first place should be enough. I don’t want to lie about my situation. Any ideas how to avoid this?
How are you parents of infants (under 1yo) managing both working from home and taking care of the baby with no child care/help? Feel like both spouse and I are falling behind in our jobs, and worried about either or both of us being laid off!
So, how are different firms responding to this crisis? Layoffs? Mandatory leaves of absence, salary cuts, promotion delays? Anything else? Particularly interested in Europe.
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.
How long til big4 start layoffs? No recurring rev & slow pipeline. They will hold people as long as possible primarily bc its “product” & expensive to hire & retrain but math will take over
Question regarding CRT: if my review is the week of May11, when will I find out if I'm laid off on not?
What's the strategy behind giving people less than a week's notice that they will potentially be laid off? How does that help?
A buddy of mine is doing free headshots for folks who’ve been laid off in advertising. (Link in comments.)
Agency has seen a lot of turnover due to layoffs and departures. How much notice would you expect a group creative director to give with that context?
Woke up at 2am hearing multiple "shots" fired. Saw suspicious guy bike away. Held off calling the cops. Heard "shots" again. Almost dialed 911, then I saw fireworks. Early July 4th or elaborate cover?
Anyone jump ship to industry corp dev as a manager/director level? My kids are getting older and I don't know how much longer I can keep up the m- tr grind. $200k is my magic number.
Mother NY (or any location tbh)... what’s their culture and senior leadership like? I feel like they’re unsung heroes of the ad world but that may just me being naive.
I just completed the final presentation for my project and client said I did a great job. Should I ask him if he would be willing to put that in an email to my SM? Not sure what the etiquette is.
As an analyst* I have to do the printing. I'm gonna tape the top of each paper of the reportout to the bottom of the page before it so the client has to unroll it like a scroll. *glorified secretary
Any advice would be helpful. Recently started at a tech consultancy and am building up the HR function. Thanks!
Would you exit (+30% more salary - less work - good company but potentially more narrow role) when you have a substantial shot to Senior Manager this year (I.e. 6-7 months until decision takes place)?
I got ghosted (with no in person date). I want to let him know that it's not okay/disrespectful. How should I deliver that message without coming off aggressive?

Losing hair somewhat fast and want to have a good hairline for my wedding next may. Anyone here use rogaine or any other product?
If they legalize pot, I’m going to love seeing how experienced people are at future “happy hours” on the item.
Rather new to the addiction. Curious about what people like about non metal/leather bands. Irrespective of the piece itself, these other band types seem to cheapen a watch’s appearance to me. Looking for other perspectives.
