How much is severance usually?
This may be the most impactful spot Ive ever seen. Setting aside the politics of gun control for just a moment, I’m curious what people think of the approach:
What’s everyone’s take on unlimited PTO? Our agency is moving to this but I actually hate the concept/benefit. No one takes time off as it is and I think it allows for overworking and passive aggressive judgement.
What's the culture and vibe like at Manifest in Chicago? Stable environment with leadership team you can respect. Give me the skinny - the good, bad and the ugly!
As a company we are looking at going digital with our employee personnel and medical files etc. What are some of the ways you have done that? Any advice/recommended process?
For anyone who’s started at a company fully remote (Covid or otherwise)… when ramping into your new role, what did you do to feel more connected to your team/sales dept? I’m finding that I have questions that I don’t know how or whom to ask, I don’t know who anyone is and my manager can be MIA. This is my first fully remote role and it’s thrown me for a bit of a loop

Are the lions that important for business or are they important for stroking somebody’s ego?
Did the Grand Prix winning Dove campaign commission those Covid portraits or did they already exist?
How long, on average, did it take you to study before you could pass the PHR/SPHR exam? Did you think it was worth it?
I asked an AE to search for GIPHs and she said GIPHs weren’t her thing. I explained it’s like doing a regular footage search. But she said she ‘isn’t in that world’. She’s 23 and at her 1st job. 👀
Strategists - about how often do you conduct primary research for the briefs that you write?
GenZs are cringing at how much paper we waste. Is your agency still printing decks for everyone in the room (pre-pan obviously)? I haven't done that since 2016.
Pure curiosity question: what is the starting base of partners in EY Parthenon? How is the total compensation potential? EY-Parthenon
So many ideas to write about, but as an educator I end up writing with “lessons” in my head - Culture, grammar, words, and it ends up more like non-fiction.
What’s the fdd manager salary in nyc at big4?
Laid off or Furloughed? Live in the NY Area? DM me for a part-time role to help pay the bills!
I recently accepted a new role after being laid off. I feel really blessed to have found a job in this climate. My new boss is wonderful! However, the role itself isn’t in the direction I want to go. I’m struggling with feeling guilty for continuing to job search. Any advice on staying somewhere for a good boss vs. switching jobs so soon?
Visa amendments (relocating offices): Once the firm files the amendment for the relocation, can I go outside US?
We live in NJ, and the day care here are opening on the 15th. Since my wife and I are working we are debating to send my 18mth old son. Is it safe or is it too early to start? Thanks
Just accepted an offer that’ll increase my salary by over 60%!! (and allows me to expand my practice area and work with what seems like great people) That is all.
Over a year at one big 4, hoping to get promoted to SC this year. Got an offer from another big 4 for same level but salary might be higher than what I would make after promotion. How do I leverage..
Hey guys, recent grad with a bs in bio. Trying to break into sales as an SDR/BDR in a large SaaS company (salesforce, aws, zoom etc) but finding it rather hard even after networking. Got one interview, it went well, but only 40% of SDRs are hitting quota. Open to any advice/insight and help.
Sponsored MBB consultant planning on going back. What would you choose between a half scholarship at Wharton, no money at Harvard, and no money at Stanford?
Anyone have insights into working for Cisco? Got a decent offer to move over there. It’s management level from deloitte to similar level there. About 20% pay increase, plus WFH and 25% max travel.

Are you worried about the new delta covid variant? It’s picking up speed and is more deadly than what we’ve seen before. I’m all for recovery and going back to normal but I think this variant could derail that
