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?

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.
