I got laid off because of covid and need to discuss the severance package with my ceo tomorrow. Company offers 6 months, I want more as it probably will take much longer to find a new job. Any tips for a conversation like this? I’m normally a strong person related to my work but feel very uncomfortable and uncertain right now. He is a good talker and I’m afraid he will walk all over me.

Why are the only big-name layoffs Creatives? No agency president, CEO or CFO who left their agency unprepared is being fired?

McDonald’s fired their CEO for having a relationship with an employee. How many agencies would have their leadership decimated if this was a rule in advertising?

Is it weird that my CEO has not issued any communication to the company about the impact of the pandemic and what we are doing? Meanwhile, people are being laid off, furloughed and taking pay cuts.

Fired for a bullshit reason by a sociopathic boss so he could make a political play and hire a lady to look good to the CEO. He was promoted quickly after. Any tips for moving on. Still feel wronged

My company folded and the CEO fired everyone and only guaranteed 2 days pay... He was on vacation when this was sent out to the entire staff.

P1 - can partners be fired? I was one of the #metoo posts, a partner cornered me trying to get into my hotel room (both hands on both sides of me), luckily I was able to get out of the situation. This partner is still at the firm, haven't said anything. No physical evidence (no texts, emails, etc. so HR/legal wouldn't do anything). What do we do, P1, when this happens?

Long story short: I work for a small healthcare consulting firm. Since COVID, I was going to the office once a week, every Wednesday. Today, I have put on my 2 weeks because I accepted an offer from a big 4. During my last 2 weeks, I had planned to see my family for the first week, and go to the office on my final week. Also today, my boss asks me to come in the office everyday next week. Should I say I don’t feel comfortable and just don’t go?What’s the worst it happen? Get fired lol
