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?

CEO is hosting a town hall on Zoom to say there will be no layoffs and no salary cuts and someone has just used the chat to ask for a stipend to buy a chair. This is why we can’t have nice things

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.

Was told that a couple of senior managing director was fired this month in strategy, all well respected guys. Is this more of a new CEO thing or we are actually firing people level by level .....

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

So I’ve had two interviews at a start up, one over video chat and the other was two hours long in-person with the CEO and the co-founder, but during the process I was laid off from my job (continued)

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.

I have a modeling test on Wednesday with a solar farm developer. On the phone interview that proceeded this, the CFO mentioned that these pro forma solar farm models are more nuanced than most. He mentioned bonus depreciation and tax credits among other things. Are there any good resources that I can use to learn about solar farm/renewable energy modeling? Also any general tips or things I should be aware of. If anyone could share a model too that would be awesome! Thanks for the help.

Own a townhouse currently, but venturing into investment property for the first time. Are condos a good idea in Jersey city, Hoboken area? Targeting the ones without the horrendous HOA obviously. Also hearing from the realtor that the play has to be that you say it’s your 2nd home to use on weekends or something like that so you don’t end up with higher down or high interest rates that are associated with a typical investment prop from lender standpoint. Curious to know how this works.
