I was laid off in January and haven’t had a job since. I’m broke and depressed. I live in NYC and the senior account management roles are few and far between. Do I quit at this point?

Just heard of the story of a senior who was fired because she was interviewing at a new firm, and this new firm called her current firm for references. Obviously they (cont’d)...

Just got laid off, what would one year as a Senior Consultant in Strategy, an MBA at a top 15 school, and 6 years prior work experience get me? Any potential to get a strategy/BD position at FAANG?

Senior agency leaders, honest question: If we didn’t have to hand over so much revenue to our holding companies, would there be fewer layoffs?

Anyone else on a “high priority” project with great visibility but feel zero gratification because my senior is a slide maniac? We spend so much time putting things in slides that are too detailed for the client to do anything with.... I feel like the practice in my firm just makes people spend hours on decks because it’s “a thing” and they did it so I have to. I’m ready to quit and wish I’d get laid off. That sounds terrible but I have skills that are more useful elsewhere. Send the hate.

1 year 4 months experience at a top 10, no CPA. I was hoping to stay until senior but just got laid off. What kind of roles should I go for and what % pay bump is fair especially in this economy?

Can a Senior Manager who otherwise has a good reputation, get fired for bullying? If not, will this person still make it to partner? There seems to be a lack of transparency in firms around this

I was making $130k as a senior copywriter at a smaller shop in NYC but was laid off. Did this salary give me an unrealistic expectation of what I’m going to make next, either in NYC or other markets?

Due to Covid & a new VP, everything is changing at my company & senior reps are being micromanaged like new hires. Seniors are quitting and being fired like nothing I’ve ever seen. Anyone else?

I am 30 and just got promoted to Senior manager. I think I am doing well but I feel I am driven more by pessimism, imposter syndrome, and fear of getting fired as opposed to a positive mindset and the desire to thrive in my career. I feel like I am suffering from some sort of a mental issue but wanted to throw it out here and get some advice to deal with this from the fishbowl fam as opposed to going to therapy. Thanks in advance for your responses!
