If you are feeling sick or something during the day and WFH, do you feel comfortable napping it off and then getting back to work and working late if needed? I have friends that say this is totally normal and okay but I feel weird about it and can never actually rest to feel better if I do lay down
Would you ask for a higher pay at a startup, due to the company not having a pension scheme for its employees?
Ladies & Gentlemen, with one month left in Q2, some will fall short of our numbers. Others will hit them. I can’t speak for all of us here, however, I can speak for myself. That being said, I will NOT be one that comes up short of my number. Now, this leads me to you all, to present a question. If you have to prospect, if you’re looking for new business, is it worth $1500 to put 95% of your prospecting process on autopilot? If so, let’s chat.
curios for ppl in a green card process,: what's your agency policy on starting the process? Do you have to work for the agency for a certain amt of years or at a sepcific levels ( managers? ADs? )
I am looking to gain certification or other credentialing in diversity and inclusion, not only because it would look good on my resume both for future job-search purposes and also to become better educated in this area, which is growing in importance. I looked at SHRM's "Inclusive Workplace Culture Specialty Credential" and got a bit of "sticker shock" at the cost - $1,655.00 for members. Does anyone have other suggestions on training/credentialing in this area?
Any thoughts on the best certifications to get in order to help move forward? I have considered the CCP from World at Work, but it’s fairly pricey to get by the time you wrap up everything. I was looking at both SHRM-CP and SPHR. Everyone that I have spoken to has the SHRM, but that’s also only looking at individuals in a small geographic footprint and within 3-4 different companies. I was hoping to get some thoughts on this from others? Thanks
I produce “digital” for money and content for passion. Can I get paid to do both? Any agencies with actual “integrated” production departments? I’m sick of sites and banners.
To those who have several years of experience ion TA: Do you think staying in the campus recruiting space limits you? Should one try to get exposure to other HR areas for the long run?
So the same day CP+B closes the Miami office, the Boulder office has their holiday party? Tacky business.
Looking for book recos for creative people moving into managing people as CDs and not knowing WTF they're doing.
Lol at AdAge’s Small Agency awards.
Any agencies not returning to the office? I have loved this year of WFH and never want to go back.
Curious how other people’s brains work. When you get an activation brief, what’s your process for coming up with a solid idea? Look for cultural moments that you can adapt? Look through award show books? Scroll YouTube videos until 3am? I know that every brief and every idea is different, but I’m more interested in the process and what you’re creative routine is to get the wheels turning. Thanks.

How hard is it to get into MBB from tier 3 firm with an undergrad from a state school? Coming from 2-3 years gov consulting

So there is likely no impact to deloitte or similar consulting firms based on the new 3 year to 1 year extension rule? Just saw the email from Deloitte immigration on this. Any thoughts?
Would you suggest paying down student loans (approx $29k) while 0% interest or put that money into savings. I’ve been on a 10% salary reduction since April and bought a house last fall. I’ve been able to pay my bills and maintain about 2-3 months of expenses in savings. My disposable income has reduced due to the salary reduction, but I’ve cut out unnecessary spending. I’m trying to decide whether to take advantage of 0% interest and get my loans as low as I can or put that money into savings.
I think this will give our children the attention needed but will they be crippled when applying to college - rules seem to change when we make a change
Now we know the side effects of experimental Covid drugs. But wait, I see no change in rage levels. Do you?
From PwC bowl. I don’t think this is a widespread thing but want to unpack the idea of it. PwC is certainly looking at staff utilization for black employees to make sure they are getting put on jobs but that doesn’t mean better jobs. There are no saved opps for minorities, like wtf. And early promotion is definitely not a thing but could naturally happen when given more opportunity. It is insane to me that someone already privileged would even think of doing this to maintain their privilege.
Just got feedback from my MBB interview. So close, asked to come back in 6 months to try again 🤕
