The worst part of working overtime right after the longest tax season of your life is your spouse getting pissed at you for working. I’m a tax manager who has been the acting tax Director since my firm fired our last Director the week before Christmas. Work has been hell for the last 7 months and now on top of everything else, I’m in charge of payroll (we fired our payroll department in January but still kept like 25 clients for fun) and returns are due Friday. I’m depressed and exhausted.

The worst creative I’ve ever worked with was just hired by W+K. Never made any decent work. Didn’t care about the work. We got awesome briefs creatives dream of and they wouldn’t lift a finger, putting extra work on the rest of the team. They mostly went unnoticed in the agency except by the people on their immediate teams who hated working with them. When we found out they were leaving, everyone assumed they got fired. So how does this person wind up at W+K?

Looking for advice: have an offer to start at PwC S& as a senior associate. However, I now have a 5 wk old daughter and am concerned about travel during and after the pandemic. Longer work hours, missing milestones, and news about recent layoffs at the firm also bother me. Have a stable and a bit boring job right now in Industry. So, is the move worth it? And for any parents, is it worth missing those early years and milestones for the possibility of increased pay?

Say you got laid off as a junior strategist and, to make ends meet, you took a job in project management. How would you get more strategy experience? What do you do if you’re in between skill levels?

I’ve been laid off for around 4 months now. Multiple interviews. Multiple rejections. Tons of applications/ resumes submitted. Crickets. Anyway to find out if you’re being blacklisted?

Thanks in advance.
