I am struggling with the fact that since trump lost we have a close to nonfunctional republic. Head of most of defense and deputies are all fired. Head of cyber command. Sec of state is doing a wine tour is Israel. Head of GSA won’t do their job. None of congress will take up anything COVID. And the president fighting hard for his job is doing less of his job than he normal but lots of golf. Republican apparatus is a disgrace. And don’t say but the dems... they aren’t in charge.
What would you do? I was recently reached out to by an exec I worked for at another agency. He’s at a new agency and looking for an EA to assist him, the new president and another exec. However the agency itself is not doing well- no new biz wins, big layoffs recently, terrible reviews on Glassdoor. I like my current agency enough, however, very much don’t like the 2 execs I assist. Would you go rather work for good execs at a bad agency? Or stay at a decent agency but awful execs?
My ECD was really pushing for me to get promoted to CD. Our group president wanted to see more townhall presentations by me and if I do so I can get promoted to CD in October, he promised.
Unfortunately, I will get laid off this month. What title do I give myself best on LinkedIn and my resume? Shall I go for CD? As the company will pay few more months of salary I’m thinking of keeping the company name on LinkedIn as well. Awkward to change title to CD at xxx?
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.

He fired Vindman’s twin brother too. What a petty, small man this President* has turned out to be. Thank you GOP for showing your true colors in electing this dotard into office.
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.
Sessions fired. Looks like Trump understands how much trouble he’s in. To all the Trumpers in this thread trying to spin yesterday’s results... maybe you should tell your president.
Has any one yet heard of the president of Tangible Media shutting all operations and letting all employees go. No severance package, no paid vacation, nothing but a 48 hour notice to pack up and go.
When your president wants to bring in outside media professionals to audit your plans, do you quit? Are you getting fired? Anyone hiring?!
I got fired without notice a day before my meeting with the president of the agency. My boss( talented) always turned down my ideas saying it was not in the scope of my job to think. What do I do?

Just got promoted to SM. I worked my ass off for this and am very proud. At the same time, my daily life is exactly the same - my role won’t change and I can’t celebrate because of COVID. Also, I feel guilty because I know so many people who have been laid off during this time. Any advice on how to enjoy this accomplishment and feel the excitement during this time?

Serious question: should I do anything in response to a SM trying his damnedest to get me fired without cause?
I’ve got a really good job. Wasn’t looking to move but a big 4 consulting firm reached out. I received a very generous/life changing offer. I’m so worried about work/life balance if I take this offer. Also worried about layoffs in a year or two when the market gets back to normal. I’ve got an infant and a 5 year old. I know that I can manage my current workload. I don’t want to pass up a great opportunity but I’ve got to be available for my family too!
