How do you all show a promotion/job shift within one company on your resume? Pics much appreciated ❤️
Have you ever taken another job for a significant pay increase or just a moderate and regretted it?
Restarted Mad Men from S1E1 yesterday. Watched it several years ago. It is really a brilliant piece about the complexity of life, in an advertising setting. Where are the modern-day Don Drapers?
Is it worth it moving to SF. I know NY and LA are the obvious choices and hotly debated. SF is expensive af but I feel like more opps are avail and you get the best of both worlds. Thoughts?
Anyone else notice how rents keep rising, as does the price of eggs, but salaries haven't changed in 15 years?
I've never seen "brand safety" used so much as a cover for "I have a strong political bias- and I'm going to act on that by pulling levers I can control, regardless of true business impact/rational."
Call it brand safety all you want. It's personal bias seeping into your work decisions. It makes "you" feel better/empowered. Brand safety is a cover.
Honest: even if GaryV was given a few million revenue business to start with, built a $150million+ agency off that. we slam him, but we work with multi-million dollar brands without doing as much...
When the IT call center gives you two numbers to call back and neither of them actually work. 😆
I started my job recently and I already took a sick day. I really just needed a mental health day but I’m afraid this makes me look bad. Thoughts? How soon have you taken a sick day at a new job?
Laid off with most of my team. Really frustrated with corporate leadership in general, watching them protect overhead over employees.
If I had access to capital and RFPs, I’d build a collective of teams to respond to briefs, pay everyone a flat fee for participation, have everyone pitch in competition, and winners oversee execution. Just get rid of all the overhead, bonafide meritocracy. Anyone work at V&S or other crowdsourced agency experiments? Why did they fail?
Any cool independent agencies in LA?
Hi there! Does anyone have Intel on how's Chiat LA nowadays? Sweat shop? How's leadership? Good clients? Any info is appreciated! Hope you have a great day. :)
I was laid off in June and just got a job offer that I am excited about. However, my partner and I are also in discussions about moving. The job would be remote for at least another 5+ months so it wouldn’t be an issue now, but eventually people will be back in the office in some hybrid plan.
Is it better to float the possibility of working remote long term with HR now? Or do I accept and say nothing til we’ve officially decided to move. I don’t want to lose the opportunity. What would u do?
Vaccines are here, the sun is back out, what vibe are you getting from your shop about WFH?
Mine is confusing because our chief leadership gave a big hoohah about bringing everyone back and being excited to see everyone, but literally right after on my 1:1 with my boss she said she doesn’t care if I move somewhere else or go to a different time zone, just be able to come around for parties / clients being in town.
FYI I’m analytics - very remote friendly. Creative, account, new biz, etc. ICU
Anyone from a Portland agency up for grabbing a coffee, my treat? Visiting at the end of the month and looking to make the move out there :)
Barclays or ey gds which company is better to work with from software development role perspective?
Will be commuting to Google NYC in June from Long Island, NY. Curious what other NYC Googlers are doing for their commute if you’re willing to share.
Even if you’re not commuting from Long Island, do NYC Googlers have monthly parking tips in the city?
Curious to hear people’s thoughts on this. As an Asian American female (28 years old), I make significantly more than my Asian American bf (29 years old), and this is a constant topic in my family and aunts and uncles with really hurtful jabs about how he’s poor and the guy should make more than the girl and how it’s so embarrassing. Has anyone else experienced this in terms of these traditional values and toxicity? For reference, I own property and make 200K while he’s around 90K.
I’ve been told many times over to focus on what I can control,but as we head into the 2nd month of quarantine I cant shake off the feeling that at least 20% of our BigSomething jobs will go poof (...)

Am I wasting my time talking to a guy I matched with who's NYC while I'm all the way in California? We only talk couple times a day too... Not wasting time per say but more so my hope and emotions 😅
My raise % has historically been good. Company entered into a big lucrative deal in 2021 which brought on more work and with it, promises of more lucrative prospects for everyone.
Come performance review time, I’m getting a rave review but was informed that the increase isn’t as big as prior years because HR is limiting the raises and not giving the department as much discretion as it did in the past with nos.
Tried to ask for more but not getting to the sweet spot.
Time to find a new job?
I want to go into mortgage underwriting, but I'm having difficulty landing a position, let alone an interview. I have roughly 5 years of mortgage experience. 4 in sales and a little over a year in operations. Anyone have any advice? Thanks!
Hi everyone, I am currently looking to get into project management in Vancouver or Toronto. Any opportunity would be amazing, thank you in advanced!
Any Deloitte Feds here had luck relocating as part of the fed geo expansion efforts? If so, how? Any tips?
Is it still worth using relationship status targeting on Facebook? Going to be running a bridal ring ad for ring upgrades so want to only target married or engaged; but I’m not sure if people still really update their relationship status anymore.
What are some good ways to reach out to influencers? Does this vary based on the social media platform they are on? An example of what can be said when reaching out would be good!
