I think I may be getting laid off today: got a strange meeting invite for a call with my VP & HR. Any advice?
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 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.
I was sexually harassed (assaulted, specifically) at a work event more than a decade ago. The VP who did this was fired (I did not report; someone else reported). This VP is still in the same...
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?
Is it okay to wear an N95 mask now?? I know at the beginning all N95s we’re supposed to go to medical personnel, but I recently was given a new one from a friend and want to know if it’s acceptable to wear it, or if I should stick to my cloth mask. Note: don’t comment saying “you don’t need a mask”. I WILL wear my mask outside to keep others and myself safe; I’m just wondering if it’s socially acceptable to start wearing N95s if you have one.
Salary question - am I underpaid? I think I know the answer but I want validation from my peers to make an informed decision. I am an IT project manager with 5 yoe, PMP/CSM certified, government consulting, making 72k in DC. How much should I be making?
Recruiter gives salary range of 130-145k in initial convo. I say under 155k would be hard, he says “$10k higher, that’s doable.” Healthcare at company sucks - so Now want to ask for 160k. Is that ok?
Who else thinks Americans should learn about advertising from India ? All I see are ads about medications. No product or ad has any emotional connect 🤯

Boston peeps - I'm looking to buy a house and I'm amazed at how the home prices on average have increased by 30% since 2016 (greater Boston area). Salaries haven't increased by that much in that time.
