We received an email from IPG today very vaguely saying there will be furloughs, pay reductions, and possibly staff cuts. Anyone at any IPG agencies seen or heard of any of this yet?
I know there’s a lot of variability in this question but... on average what big four holding company pays the best in ranking order? I’ve heard the following: 1. Publicis 2. OmniCom 3. WPP 4. IPG
What are the various tuition reimbursement policies at holding co agencies? Is it the same within parent company I.e. do all IPG agencies have the same benefits?
“Work from home if you want.” Translates to “work from home if you want to be judged.” Come on IPG, call it. Keep your people safe. They’re getting scared.
What are the pros/cons of moving from WPP to IPG? I can’t give specifics about which agencies but I’m curious in a general sense about benefits, compensation, career growth, culture, etc.
Incredibly tone-deaf: the same day layoffs happen at Weber Shandwick and Golin, the head of a sister IPG PR agency posts about winning best place to work 🙄

Just had my first business trip since COVID. I just want to say FU to everyone who is inconsiderate enough to recline and try to break my kneecaps for 2.5 hours.
I’ve a new, significantly better job offer on my hands. I’m struggling to be excited about it, and become comfortable with the idea of moving jobs. I feel like my current company has done a lot for me, and I’m overwhelmed with guilt at the idea of leaving them and all the great people behind. Is this normal? I’m young and obviously should not be so stuck in my comfort zone. This is my first job so I’m also a little nervous about being in an environment I don’t absolutely love.
Interviewing at McKinsey from a big 4 consulting firm - currently an engagement manager interviewing for an engagement manager role on the partner track - comp at big 4 is currently $165k base, what’s a reasonable amount to ask for at mck? I got an Ivy League exec mba in 2020 as well, which hasn’t yet been reflected in my big 4 comp (we mostly didn’t do raises because of covid last year). Trying to understand how much higher mck might be willing to go?
Anybody know Deerfield Management - healthcare hedge fund? Recruiter reached out to me..
I read an article about companies planning to increase remote work even after it’s safe to go back to work. The first question was “How does your company measure productivity?”. Why don’t big 4 consider other was to capture productivity? Utilization is such a huge factor in big4 but capturing productivity within that is a lot harder to measure. Thoughts on big4 moving to a productivity model over hours model?
More experienced PwCers: I'm an associate who got a top rating and a large raise during CRTs. How scared do I need to be about getting laid off?

I’m an immigrant with H1B. Been wanting to get out of my firm so badly but every time I apply outside, I start getting dragged into work at my current firm.I was going through some pretty rigorous interviews (I failed them) and have been in a slump since. Meanwhile my current firm keeps dumping work on me and I can’t find the time to apply outside. Anyone been through something similar? I’m losing hope.The politics is also so toxic, they started screwing me over since my last performance review.
Not comp related but a question on references: I’ve only had 2 direct managers, current one is nice but I can’t let him know I’m interviewing. Previous one was a bully and I made clear that I cut contact with him when I left (he later had to contact me for non-essential work related stuff but I declined to talk). I have other references I could use, but want to prep for situation when employers ask “why can’t we talk to your previous manager.” Thanks!
Life of non-immigrants depend on the Visa they hold and it’s so sad these companies don’t have a team where we can speak to someone immediately in case of a visa emergency situation . In EY you need to submit a form and wait for days together to get a reply from a human. Mean time you would have gone through 5 anxiety attacks.
Would love to hear your thoughts. I moved to a F100 company a few months ago as an FP&A analyst after a few years of big4, as I was concerned I was gonna get stuck in audit/financial accounting positions. My plan was to get some analyst experience and jump again next year, as I'm conscious of the slow progression in industry and wanted a career with commercial/strategic focus. Now I'm not sure, if I should stick with the plan or boomerang back into an advisory role due to the market demands.
When should I expect to hear back from schools for interviews? I submitted apps September 1st and I feel like I’ve been seeing posts on here of people already interviewing. I’m kind of freaking out 🙃
Post your unpopular opinion. I’ll start: Layoffs are good for firms. It keeps the top-performers, aligns reality with company’s expectations, and as a result, brings better work.
Anybody needs United Business Class Upgrades DM me. Preferably would like to give it away to someone who doesn't travel business very often. Paying it forward :)

Was told that Amazon legal comp is “lock step” based on YOE, suggesting that there is no room for negotiation. Is this true? #Legal #amazon #pay #tc #totalcomp #comp Amazon
Poll for the group - How common are PIPs at the various Big 4? Is it like the whole bottom 10% of everyone’s group or a once-in-a-while-this-person-is-dumb kind of thing? Have heard of quite a few within my group and wondering if it’s normal or something isn’t quite right.
Any thoughts on Bartle Bogle Hegarty? How’s the culture, environment, work life balance?
I like strategizing approaches. Figuring out how to make life easier for other consultants. Identify gaps and solution ways to improve design and implementation. I feel like I’m putting out fires but I want to help prevent them in the first place. ￼What role would that be?
