Has anyone in creative bought a house or apartment? I’m in NYC and trying to pull trigger but fear of job instability and layoffs is crippling me w indecision. Apts ain’t cheap
I work at an agency that asks women, especially women of color, to attend client meetings to "show face." Does this happen at other agencies? How offended should I be?
It's great to finally have a bowl of our own! In terms of HCM software, what is something that all of them tend to be missing, aside from a good user experience?

I should be more sensitive but I think it's fucked up to start a new job and tell your boss after a week that you will be out on maternity leave in 4 months.
Living in SF but remote until September (earliest). Rent is too high + apartment too small to justify staying for 3+ months. Playing with the idea to leave (temp or perm). Are people doing the same?
Sorry I do not want to go to your virtual conference unless my agency will fly me to the city it was supposed to be in, put me up in a hotel and expense all my meals for three days, and you send me home with a tote bag full of somewhat useful household items with unrelated brand logos on them.
Is there tactful way to tell a more senior team that their pitch concept was already done a few years ago and was in fact a very popular campaign in the exact same vertical they’re pitching? Not just kinda similar, but same tagline and everything. I’m not on the project, just happened to see the work and it goes out next week. Say something or keep my mouth shut? Feels like I’m f’d either way.
Somehow I went from being too young for all the good jobs to being too old for all the good jobs, and I’m not sure what happened in between.
Do you sell work now, that was killed at your previous agency? If yes: do you credit your ex-colleagues? Worked with awesome creatives, but not made shit. CCO killed great work because of taste, ECD killed great work because he only presented safe work (did not fight for the work), clients kill.. wel you get the point. I want to keep the great ideas alive, but also want to be fair to my ex-colleagues if it gets made.
After a very good interview with a an agency recruiter I contacted her for updates. She replied she was still waiting to hear from the team but I was in her list. Shall I wait or contact her again?

Any insight on going from Big 4 audit (S1) to boutique PE firm in an analyst role? The role supports operations of the portfolio companies (i.e. system implementations, accounting set up, etc.). Sounds like interesting work but the exit opportunities are a little unclear and not sure if it would be detrimental to veer away from an accounting-specific role.

When it comes to layoffs do you think parents are considered safe because they have mouths to feed or it doesn’t matter?
Anybody ever had a legal recruiter stiff them on a referral fee? My friend got a great job out of the situation so that’s what is important, but I’m curious if it’s a common practice for recruiters?
Saw that Jared and Ivanka broke quarantine to go on a vacation in April. What kind of example does that set?
I expecting to receive an offer letter this afternoon and to walkthrough it with the hiring managers. I will also have a phone call with HR later this week for any additional questions. I gave my expected salary range (pretty wide and aggressive) during the interview process but haven’t talked specifics. I assume negotiations happen with HR instead of the hiring manager? Anyone have any insight? Thank you so much. First time interviewing outside of college
