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?
Obviously leaving for client side pays well, but sticking with agencies, how does one make a BUNCH of money in this industry? (Short of "get an MBA and become a CEO")
Hey Grey 🐠- What's your parental leave policy?
Adweek reporting on the impact of COVID-19 on the industry and the massive downturn and layoffs, yet still paywalls its news. Frustrating to say the least as we try to stay informed.
Are you or have you been the sole HR person at the company? What are the pros & cons? I haven’t been, but a recruiter reached out with an opportunity to be one. They currently use the parent company’s HR but are buying themselves out to be a stand alone firm. TIA!
Agency announced 16-weeks of paid paternity and I qualify. Only problem, I head up a very lean discipline at the agency and have a strong feeling that taking advantage could cause resentment....
How long was your last job search? My lease is up in 2 months and I’m looking to time it with starting a new job in L.A. Should I start the job search now or wait a month?
What training or guidance are you giving managers at your firms about managing hybrid teams? There is a lot out there on remote teams, but a lot of us are going back three days a week which means people at home and people in the room. Any tips to pass on?
I’m planning on working remote in a few different cities this summer and fall. A week or two or three here and there. The goal is to stay inspired, meet new creatives and ad nerds, experience art, learn more, drink on rooftops and keep feeding my creative mind. Who has suggestions of cities I should hit?
Now that networking events are virtual and limited opportunity for face to face meetings - how are new leads being generated besides website traffic. How do you "network" at virtual meetings and presentations?
Hi Everyone! I’m torn between which HR certification to pursue (SHRM-SCP or SPHR). Which one would you recommend and why?

Let’s start a conversation around parental leave - how is it at your agency. Does your agency do enough to support new parents? What changes can we make in our industry to better support working parents? Share your stories about being a working parent.
So, I’m currently interviewing for new job, and market is not bad, but I’m anxious and I am interviewing for every opportunity that comes my way (director/vp level, tech). Today, September 30 I received an invite for an initial interview for another opportunity. So I applied to this opportunity through networking on August 10 (!). It looks like a red flag for me and I’m thinking thankyounext, but again it’s covid time... Thoughts?
Advice on taking and passing the SPHR exam?

Performance Reviews are coming up and I’m pretty sure mine is going to be average. But working from home while parenting toddlers the last six months while people are sick and dying, I think I’ve been a fucking superhero.
Trying again: has anyone switched from a marketing/ brand consultancy (like prophet) to agency side? Wondering differences etc—
Just got promoted. At the same time, got an industry offer from my target sector, director of the internal strategy team. Both TC and base of the offer is 10% lower than my current numbers, and the gap will become 50k-60k reduction in base alone after my promotion. Am i crazy to still consider this offer?
Question on form I-693 (medical exam): should I include it right now along with my I-485 application or wait till I'm called for interview?
That NYC snowstorm is a blessing at now deserted client site. Faster internet, no lines at elevators & lunchrooms, 10x cleaner bathrooms, and no obnoxious political chats around us. Let it snow.
How do I change my mindset to be more positive? Feels like I start my days in a decent mood and within an hour or two of working I’m in the worst mood. Every client email seems to annoy me and when I look at my pic on Teams I visually looks crabby all the time and act it to. 🤦🏻♂️ I’m only 28, far too young to be like this.
I’m trying to decide if I should go with my husbands or my health insurance plan. After doing a matrix, I know the main thing really is the contracted rates which is really hard to find out. How do
Can I hear from some moms who used a snoo? Baby is almost 8 weeks and I only get about 3 hours on our first stretch then she has such a hard time staying asleep the rest of the night. I’ve tried comforting her with a pacifier (that she spits out almost immediately), dream feeding, locking it on 2, kicking it up to 3, swaddling in the snoo sac, warming the snoo with a heating pad. Nothing is working and I feel like death.
Companies need to not dilute diversity with this whole diversity of thought jibberish - there are real issues re: bias, race, gender and respect in the workplace. Education around how to build better
Big 4 staffs and seniors, do you get the exposure to prep a return in its entirety? (Fed and states?). How much of a return to you get to see and prepare on your own?
Hi 🐠! I was in state and federal strategy consulting, exited to philanthropy about two years ago. I’m bored and thinking of going back to public/third sector consulting. Anyone have any experience returning to consulting? Lessons learned you might share? Open to referrals too.
Flight canceled due to "security screening disruptions" in IAH... Anyone heard of this before?
How does Deloitte’s 401k & pension compare to a 4% 401k match that vests immediately? Comparing offers and trying to determine how much worse off I’ll be at Deloitte
Just finished 3 hour first round interview for my dream job (highly competitive). I tried my best but I’m spiraling and I’m now questioning if I could even successfully perform in this role. Major imposter syndrome as I try to cushion the blow if I don’t get asked back for 2nd rounds, any words of encouragement or tips that have worked to calm your nerves?
Wait, you mean I could work from home?!
Is it typical for pwc to request an additional interview with a partner after having already met with multiple people in an in-office interview?
Are you allowed to share an offer letter from one company with another? I’m negotiating for a higher salary by leveraging another offer.
So this might be a better place to post this and ask this question: Uncle D has announced explicitly that most people won’t get a pay raise & bonus this year except for those promoted and high performers. Amid this crisis, are companies including other big 3, MBB, FAANG, boutique consulting firms still giving high raises and issue stocks? Can you share the impact from your firm?
AE salary at a big Chicago agency? (Leo, DDB, FCB, etc). Have a few offers and want to be prepared going into talks.
