Thoughts on OHG agencies for creative? Specifically Harrison & Star and Biolumina. Curious if they've been generally healthy places to work through the pandemic.

What is your policy on a rehire and how you handle accrual rates for PTO, do you start over? Do you have a window like if they return within 6 months it stays with original hire date? Do you handle this differently when it is a layoff? I tried to find best practices in this but not finding anything.

Hi there! I need some guidance. HR and global leadership rolled out some amazing new initiatives like not starting until 10 am on Mondays, no meeting Fridays and required 2 additional summer days a month. The problem is, my boss refuses to comply with the initiatives. He constantly scheduled meetings before 8 am on Mondays and after 7 pm on Fridays. He also doesn’t let me take time off. Should I go to HR? I’m really not one to complain but I’m tired and extremely burnt out. Thanks for your help!

I recently started at a larger software company as an AE. As I’m getting more into the process, I’m finding things odd. Like, cold calls and emails are metrics I’m judged on more than closed won business. I know that’s part of the job but it seems strange I’m judged on it so heavily. And, I seem to be the first real outside AE hire as everyone else seems to have been promoted up from SDR roles, including all of my direct management. I’m questioning if I made the right move. Stick it out or look?

So I know layoffs suck. I’ve been laid off twice in two years (and I’m pretty good at my job!) But I want to say that each time, my next gig has netted me a 20%+ salary increase. So jokes on them! I start my new gig on next week, so fingers crossed I like it. Good luck to everyone starting over! You will succeed and know your worth!

I started a new job last Sept and the workload has been a constant challenge. My dad just spent 3 weeks in hospital. My boss knows and never asks about him.

(And please don’t just say look for a job).

I find that single male friends of friends are generally very eager when we first met or were introduced (through events, common friends’ parties).

I genuinely want to keep them in my life as friends. Why is this the case?
