i just had an excellent review with my supervisors. we are aligned i am ready to be promoted. i will be moving from project manager to senior project manager. the catch; my company has laid off 75% of its staff, and cut our salaries by 25%. timing is unclear, since we work in the live entertainment space. what is fair to ask for? i have 7 years work force experience, am the only one in my position, touch every creative deliverable the agency makes, and updated and streamlined 10+ processes.
I'm not one to advocate people being fired, but how the fuck are these refs still employed??
How's Edelman NY? Getting hit up for Health which I've never done. It'll entail moving from advertising to PR/earned creative as they call it, and the Health category. Didn't sound like hard sell pharma, quite a bit of branded video content. I searched on FB, sounded mostly negative culturally (employee fired during Pride month, political, creatives better watch their backs, climate denier) with a few who love it. Figured I'll ask if anything's changed, if it's even worth ... considering.
I’m in my mid-40s with a 7 year old and baby. Is it too late for me to back into public accounting? I was laid off last year and found a great job in a large bank. I miss the flexibility, challenge and rigor of PA. I would love your opinions. Has the ship sailed for me in PA? If I go back I would be an experienced senior; maybe, a year or so from manager.
How common is PIP in consulting? When someone is fired in consulting, is it normally preceded by a PIP, or is that the abnormal case? (Talking firms 1000+ people)
Avoiding the question about layoffs. Good job Miles.
Is this the week I get laid off?
Few years back, I heard from the inside Ogilvy Chicago and VSA formed an anti-poaching agreement to not hire each other's talent. I said nothing, taking no chance getting my source fired. Illegal?
What is the EY severance package ?
Was laid off in April and just got an offer for 25% more than i was making but for a role that I am not too excited about. Times are tough and i do need to get income. How bad is it to accept but continue with the rounds of interviews I started for roles I am more excited about?
When someone gets fired/laid off but they keep their previous title/agency on LinkedIn, does anyone ever tell them to change it?
What’s the average amount of time between full time roles after you’ve been laid off? Also, is it easier for ADs to find work than for CWs?
Anyone know of any senior strategy openings? Just got laid off and would greatly appreciate any leads.
Well fuck. I got laid off. Just when you think you’re in the clear, 2020 brings the pain. Guess it’s true that the big title comes with a big target.
Did PWC announce layoffs today? Or were they more targeted / based on performance and utilization? My partner just met with HR 😢
Laid off from AMLaw200 firm due to coronavirus. Had great grades first year of law school. Top of class. Able to secure summer associate position at this firm, led to first year associate position. But I did poorly after the first year of law school and graduated below 3.0 gpa. Do I have a shot at another big law firm? Seems that so many place an emphasis on grades rather than relevant experience. *sigh*
Bring on the mandates. Can’t wait until PA firms follow industry on this. https://www.washingtonpost.com/business/2021/07/31/disney-walmart-vaccine-mandate-delta/
Best books about product management for a good exit to industry? I already have an MBA and PMP but looking for a refreshed perspective since it’s been years since my formal education. Currently reading “Product Managements Sacred Seven” but it’s geared toward the startup world. I am in healthcare and not looking for a startup role. TIA!!!
Male 🐠: just started dating an MBB consultant. He’s not great about texting during the week but our dates go really well. Is the texting thing just a consultant thing or is he not that interested?
Aside all the usual bumfuckery of this Trump ‘interview’, I’m wondering what the hell happened to Maria Bartiromo? I remember her as a non-political, competent financial journalist and reader of the markets on Fox Business. Now she is a propagandist of the Trump campaign. I wonder if she’s disappointed in herself?
Anyone have insight on what the logistics of leaving Deloitte are? Give two weeks, do I need to tell project leadership? Can I sell my PTO or should I use it? Anything else I need to do? Thanks in advance.
Does anyone know the average comp for a CRM Consultant in Accenture out of NYC? Or other tier 1 cities?
Long post that’s going to spill into the comments so please bear with me 😅 Anyone having a problem with being overlooked on their team? I worked on implementing a new system, recruiting app teams to test it out, & creating a thorough guide to help people learn it. Back to back meetings with clients & different teams; I was dedicated to this project for months. My coworker added a 2-pg FAQ section & essentially got credit for doing everything even after I shared my contributions to my supervisor.
Incredibly random question. Does anyone know the specific insurance plan BCG employees get? I believe it’s Aetna. I am looking at getting a surgery in the next few months when I start this fall but trying to plan for if/how much would be covered. Boston Consulting Group
I recently accepted an offer at Wayfair start date 3/15. As soon as I accepted a dream job has now come up that is fully remote and is more inline with what I want to do (tech). What do I do? Should I push out my start date at Wayfair or do I just start with them on 3/15 and see if I get an offer at the tech company?
I feel trapped. We work hard, break glass ceilings, put in all the blood, sweat and tears needed to "make it". Usually twice as fast, with a babe on a hip - cooking, running a call. I'm over 50, solo and a parent & over the rat race. I've been putting out feelers and feeling the over 50 burn. I don't need to lead the world - a small piece would be nice, ok money. Fun people, easy roll, smart work, build smart people - cool teams. I get "you'll be bored here - we can't afford you". What2do?
Can anyone speak to the WLB and general culture in Direct Lending / Private Credit? ( Golub , ARES etc)
Hey fishes I have a partner level interview round with one of the big4s in IA and compliance domain. Can someone please guide me on what all types of questions can I expect?
Is 250k TC for a Director level position in industry the average for someone exiting a 200k TC manager position in consulting? Total 10 YOE with last 3 in consulting. Is the compensation and jump in title worth putting my small family through the trouble of relocating between coasts? Not sure I will see many more Director level exit opportunities if I let this pass and keep looking closer to home.
It’s my birthday tomorrow so I have been calling my friends to come to the party this weekend (I limited to >10 ppl due to Covid). I was planning to have a lunch drinks/pizza party since I wanted to keep it casual and outdoors, but I have been awestruck because most of them asked about whether they need to chip in for the party food/drinks or if there are hot guys before they said no. I guess I was naive to think they will all say they will come just because it’s my birthday.. kinda sad :(
Any Slalom Philly fish here? I was contacted by a recruiter and am interested in learning more about the office/culture
Which tech firms apart from Amazon are open to take people without prior product background as product managers? I’ve seen Amazon is pretty open via the Product manager non tech route. Anyone know of other firms that give new PMs a chance? (I’m asking for post MBA 2 year MBB consulting experience) McKinsey & Company Boston Consulting Group Bain & Company
Anyone else freaking out about Delta? My baby is 6 months and starts daycare on Monday. I feel like I’m sending my kid into harms way (I can’t afford a nanny).
