I just got laid off, and I’m not even mad about the job, but they literally didn’t even tell my CD before they let me go, then asked me not to tell anyone before they announced it to the network. I’m sorry, but on what planet am I not hanging up from that call and immediately calling my CD? Which is exactly what I did. They locked me out of my computer so I couldn’t even pass off files, plus it locked me out MID-call where I was being let go. Very professional. Also, my CCO didn’t even know. 🖕🏻

Massive layoffs happened on Friday, and my CD was let go. He hired me, and we had a great work relationship. Today I just feel lost and weird. He won't be replaced because there's "no budget"...

What exactly does VP mean? Contractual obligation, reports to President? Can’t get fired? What are pros and cons if any of a position like VP Creative Director, etc.

My CD is about to get fired because my partner and I are leaving. The reason? “He can’t keep a team for any length of time.” We’ve been there 2 years, what do they want, a lifelong commitment ?

I’ve seen a dozen CDs try to engineer a turnaround at an agency, all of them failed and got fired. Has anyone been through a successful turnaround with a new CD? Were there any observable changes?

Can anyone recommend an app or software for tracking billable hours to make it easier to put together and submit timesheets? I work for a small firm and all of our billing/invoicing is done manually. Every couple of weeks I go through my notes to type up my timesheets and I’m wondering if there’s an app that can record my time as I work and then put that all together categorized by client to submit for invoicing. I don’t need to note how much a particular client pays per hour.

Deloitte H1B consultants (others too) who’ve been laid off recently and received a salary continuation - Have you been able to view your employment verification letters? Need to know what are the dates mentioned there - last date of service or last date of salary continuation or both? Asking for visa purposes. Feel free to direct message to discuss. Thanks

Anyone who got laid off change their status from H1B to B2? I read that if we find a new job before the B2 visa is approved, we have to make a trip back to the country and get a visa to re-enter the US, which means we cannot enter before 2021 per the new EO. Any idea if the USCIS is approving B2 visas more quickly because of Covid?
