Was a Junior AD at an experiential agency before layoffs w/ the goal of working at a “traditional” agency. Looking for advice and feedback on how to improve/add to my book with that in mind.
I got laid off today and need a new job asap. Would love to connect with anyone looking for a junior writer.
In the S&O practice and have not been staffed since mid March. Since then been doing 50-60 hrs a week on BD (I’m a Manager for reference). Utilization was around 100% back in March currently 70%. Great reviews in Lead liked by colleagues etc. However the past few weeks have been quite depressed as I’m worried I’ll be laid off. Took a week off to take a mental break but can’t seem to relax at all (lockdown + lack of childcare isn’t helping) should I start updating my resume?
I have friends and networks who have been affected by layoffs from Amazon and other orgs. There is light at the end of the tunnel all. But on the side something happened when I tried to use my amazon alexa.
Me: Alexa what does the future look like?Alexa: The future is not looking good for the economy right now with all the big layoffs, but there is light at the end of the tunnel.
Me: Alexa where can I find the end of that tunnel?
Alexa: I am also looking for it just if you find it.
Consumer spending is way down. Ad agencies are having layoffs. Are we the canary in the coal mine for a larger nationwide trend? Should I be buying gold or just take off my tinfoil hat?
Laid off after Thanksgiving. 54. Not done yet. Plenty to offer. In Detroit but ready and able to move anywhere. AD/CD. Hangin in there. How bout you?
Agency laid off all producers, is now having BA produce. BA texts laid off employees for vendor recs. 🙄 (the eye roll is at the agency, not the BA manager who didn’t sign up for this...)
Seeing all these Deloitte "tellyourstory" posts on LinkedIn and no one is telling their story about the forced pay cuts or unnecessary layoffs.
CCTC including all benefits is 16.57 with 8.3 YOE, primarily focused on Manual Testing.
Is it worth looking for another opportunity?
I am afraid after seeing layoffs news of EPAM, Publicis Sapient & most of the other companies calling employees in the office.
I love my WFH in PwC India & base location of Kolkata. & the best thing is stability in PwC India, they never lay off!!
Anyone here familiar with the hiring process of KPMG consulting in Van? Had a partner interview on Nov 21, thought the feedback was positive but haven't heard back yet (no rejection/offer). Is it something normal or the interview just didn't go as well as I thought?
It's an experienced hire for an SC role. I saw the posting is still open atm, and my guess is that the recruiting team is comparing candidates since competition is higher due to recent layoffs.
Thanks in advance!

New Analyst here - What does it mean to get fired for poor performance? Do they do that without ever responding to your calls for feedback from project leadership or asked by you to step it up? Cont..
I'm an optimistic person, but it is so hard when everyone around me is so negative. What's the worst that happens, you get fired and you go work somewhere else.
ACN peeps- Since all the firms seem to be doing it....have we heard any rumors about layoffs at Accenture? Just wondering when they would be most likely to happen?
Ralph Watson fired from CP+B.
If anybody is being impacted by the KPMG layoffs let me know if you want to talk about new opportunities
Getting to that point where I need to balance between being shitty at my job so I get rolled off, but not shitty enough to get fired
When I joined KGS two months back, i was told i am eligible for relocation allowance of 30k. Do I need to show the bills fpr goods movement to avail that or it can be availed through other means?KPMG
Just curious — is anyone seeing claims or making claims of discrimination brought on the basis the alleged bad actor supports Trump or another republican closely aligned with Trump?

My mini cooper 2012 countryman got some damage on the lower front, any idea on an estimate the cost might be?
Answering emails while 💩💩… billable?
One of my favorite things about working at Publicis NY is that there are free tampons in the bathroom. Such a small detail but makes a big difference when needed.. 🙏🏻
Curious what an attorney’s billable amount looked like in 2012 and then ten years later in 2022. Any takers?
Nutrition Advice? I’m in my 20’s, 5’5”, Female, 170lbs.
I’ve been weight lifting for 8 months and seen tons of progress. I started at 170lbs but have lost a good amount of fat and gained muscle. the number on the scale doesn’t really matter to me but my body composition (fat to muscle %) does. Looking for solid advice on what to eat to stay healthy and burn fat. I don’t know much about cutting/bulking but I’m open. I also don’t have any diet restrictions. Thanks in advance for any advice!
I just got a new job, but it's not what I expected. I was expecting a career opportunity and a chance to learn and grow in my field, but instead I'm stuck doing the same thing as before, just from home.
Has anyone here ever tried starting a crypto casino?
I feel like it would be easier to start an online casino handling $ETH than USD.
What are some good parenting books on communication? And while we’re at it, any good ones for spouses?
https://slickdeals.net/share/iphone_app/fp/646549 is this a good offer? Chase sapphire preferred offering 100k bonus. I am currently using only citi 2% and Amazon chase card.
Been with my copy partner for close to 6 years. Got a new offer that’s really amazing but scared 💩 with all the unknowns, especially now that I will go it alone without a trusted colleague.
I’m moving across the world in a couple of weeks because I’ve been miserable where I am. A part of me wishes I could put most of what I own in a dumpster and set it all on fire, and move on, rather than have to pack. But that would be illegal and I’d likely get in trouble for that. The irony is in the packing, I seem to want to keep more than I feel I should.
How have people in this community found the shift to leadership. In my personal experience I found individual contribution tough but then did much much better as a people / team leader. Is this just me or reflective of the broader group here?
Which company would be better to join between CTS,LnT infotech and Capegemini.
