First Publicis now WPP. Thoughts on Cannes? Less relevant, more important than ever or status quo?
What’s an average timeframe of getting a job? From initial email/contact to interview to offer.
Do you think differently about the way you look, or are you more aware how your face actually looks, since you’re seeing yourself on zoom so much? And are you like me, so self-conscious that you only look at yourself the whole zoom call?
Hi! Are any of you SDRs at HashiCorp, Inc. (Austin location)? Do you like working there? How's the starting pay? Opportunities to grow?
Has anyone transitioned from direct sales to indirect (channel, solutions consulting, etc.)? I’m an Enterprise AM currently (6+ years of total closing experience in SaaS) but looking to make a change sometime in the next 18-24 months. Certainly expecting to sacrifice financial upside but growing tired of the grind.

How do Talent leaders run effective recruitment meetings? Do you focus on key metrics and priority roles? Are you doing anything else to hold others accountable? Would love to hear more!
Anyone done freelance in an account management role? Are they hard to come by? I know they’re not as common. I’ve been at my agency a long time and burnt out (I know, get in line). I’d like to try a more flexible, less emotionally invested in my job kind of life. Account person for hire, can get sh*t done and good at it. First take a break, then do short stints, filling in for people on mat leave that kind thing. Don’t have anyone but me to worry about.
Has anyone taken a sabbatical? What was your company's policy? What was your experience like making the request?
As I get older, I'm beginning to realize how little personal time I have since so much of my time and attention is consumed by work. Working from home has dramatically improved my life, but I have begun to feel rooted to a single corner of my home with little variety. I want to have experiences in the world that 10 days of vacation simply can't provide.
Any advice on taking legal action against a landlord for unsafe conditions? i.e. something wasn't installed correctly and it fell on me 😬
Looking to resign tomorrow. My direct manager has been out sick but the head of my team is in. He hired me initially before we hired my current direct manager. Does it matter who I resign to? I don’t want to disrespect anyone but also I am trying to resign before they lay me off and tomorrow the head of our team placed an early morning mtg. Smells like a lay off…

This "Day without women" event tomorrow is rubbing me the wrong way. It would be interesting to hear if any fish bowlers are skipping work....
If you are fired at the end of a PIP (ie 30 day performance plan) what is the most common practice for severance? I know companies are not entitled to give you anything and especially if it’s a firing not a layoff.
Austin ladies - I’m looking for recommendations on specific apartment complexes. I’m relocating in the new year and am crowdsourcing recommendations given I won’t be able to check it out in person. I would like to be within a 20 min commute of the capitol, budget at ~$2K for a 1BR. I like walkability (proximity to parks, running trails a plus) and near other 30-something professionals (especially singles!), but nothing too loud and crazy. Safety is important. So, basically a unicorn, ha.
Anyone check out Macy’s newest private label brand? Just got a bunch of nice clothes from there with good quality for a low price.

MS Dynamics and Salesforce head to head. What’s the one thing that differentiates one from the other?
Anyone ever purchase a home as a primary residence but eventually rent it out down the line? Did you have to notify loan servicer and go through a new formal process? Not sure if this would conflict with tax return information

Thoughts on leaving a B4 for Mid market firm like BDO? Will my stress level/hours go down or is it just the same thing somewhere else?
The entire engineering department is on the verge of quitting because our manager just got approved for a $100,000+ 3D scanner and a $250,000 metal 3D printer, but has been using all of our resources for personal projects. Meanwhile, all of us are getting paid 35% below market avg and we’re severely understaffed 🥳

How to maintain Independence Day trading?
How have other moms whose partner is working decided when the time was right to bring a babysitter back? We live in NJ and a babysitter has always been allowed but we put her on paid leave. My partner is using leave for now but we don’t want to use all of it in case one of us gets sick. With no clear state or federal guidelines on what the next step should be, we’re thinking about bringing her back shortly after Labor Day. Anyone else?
Is it necessary to have an MBA/or similar education to be a good GC, how is a GC supposed to contribute more or as much to the business as the people whose sole focus is growth, BD, marketing, business finance, product, etc.? Do businesses really want their legal team not focused on legal work in order to duplicate existing services/come up with new product, service and marketing ideas?
