Should Severance packages be included in total comp discussions? What amount of time, if any, is acceptable for a Director level role? What amount of time, if any is acceptable for a VP level role?


Is it common to negotiate the severance package when receiving and offer letter? I.e 3 months of severance for more senior roles? (VP and up)


I have been in the industry for ~ 20 years, career slowed down when I went part time to raise a family and care for aging parents and when I moved to Milwaukee, I took a demotion. I was part of Covid layoffs and have been applying for an Account Director role. When I looked on LinkedIn, the company has a lot of young people at VP level. How do I negotiate for that after the fact? What does VP mean at your company?


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 think I may be getting laid off today: got a strange meeting invite for a call with my VP & HR. Any advice?


Left PWC last year, I am a manager in top regional company , my VP and Director got fired 2 weeks ago due to re-org. Should I start looking? Would I get cut too?


I took over a vp position (as a director) when they were fired from my agency. Now, moving teams and they have hired another vp to replace me. I’ve asked for promotion and received silence in return

What exactly does VP mean? Contractual obligation, reports to President? Can’t get fired?
What are pros and cons if any of a position like VP Creative Director, etc.


Negotiating an offer and want a severance package included in the terms from the new employer. What’s a good number for a VP Strategy?


Share your craziest story about a coworker fired... I'll start. A VP invited a hooker back to his hotel room and she stole his laptop. He told the MD about it and got fired.

How frequently do people actually get fired? In two years I've seen two associates and one VP get the boot from my BB coverage group. Typical?


Just learnt that one VP in my client (ibank) suddenly disappeared (laid off). Which is very scary as her work is good, what is the most scary laid off story you have heard?

Any other agencies going through layoffs this early in the year?


During the panny, my agency moved a handful of us to a different office with no choice. Basically said we’d be fired if we didn’t comply. When we asked if we would ever have to move to the new city, we were given no answers for months. Now, they’re saying back to office in September and I have a feeling they’ll be expecting us to move. Should I ask for money to move? I personally can’t afford to and told them from the start I can’t move. Also, I really don’t want to leave my S/O. Help!


Are consulting layoffs / hiring sprees a good way to gauge the "pulse" of the economy? Is a downturn near with all these layoffs we've been hearing about?


Hey fishes! Looking for referrals to CDD groups after being laid off yesterday. Almost 2 yoe with a tier 2 rating and performance reviews as a mix of partially next level and next level trending upwards


Anyone have a sense of why Deloitte got hit so hard by layoffs? I’ve heard four potential reasons:
1. Client mix / type of work
2. Leverage
3. Over hired in anticipation of growth
4. Partners didn’t want to take a haircut

Just curious! From an external perspective, seems like they cut way more than the other firms.
