There is truly nothing like going through the shock of layoffs and then seeing your closest coworkers still here at the end of the day. Hold you peeps close today folks ❤️ 😔
Is LinkedIn helpful? I only see it as a means to showcase one's experience/education background. Am I missing out on its benefits? Not a lot of big agencies post jobs there (atleast in my city) and the recruiters that do reach out have vague, often marketing-related, job offers.
How do you conduct your research? As a strategist, do you ever go in the field yourself? Is it just reading the research the client has done already?
It is very difficult to do my job and think creatively when I’m living each day in constant fear of being laid off. I’m grateful to have a job, but damn, sometimes I feel like I’m coming apart at the seams. Happy Saturday, everyone.
Got laid off. Now what?
Comrades, if there were an advertiser’s union that could protect you from abusive work hours and other exploitative labor practices, would you join?
Question. If I wrote the script for a campaign film and it’s print ads but left my agency when it was being shot/produced (meaning I sold it but wasn’t present for all of the production), can I claim I worked on it and include the final product in my portfolio? The final script for the campaign I’m referring to is exactly what I wrote.
Trump wants to ban Tik Tok. If he added Facebook and Instagram Stories + all the social media rules to his ban, I'd vote for him. Imagine a world without the 9x16 format. Imagine a world without anyone telling you to "add more branding before 6 seconds". Imagine a world without any brief saying "there's a great opportunity to use Tik Tok". That's the kind of thing the humanity needs.
How do you stay positive while job hunting? so easy to fall into the trap of feeling like your work sucks and so do you
Art directors: where do you go for inspiration? Places in nyc, magazines, social media accounts, books, tv shows.. literally anything. Would love some fresh sources!
Informed today that, unless we win some new business in the next 90 days, I’ll be laid off. Thoughts on when I should start to make alternative plans? (Con’t)
Who’s in this? And what happened to Venables?
Microsoft Teams. Why?
I've found that the people I work with want to own everything yet do nothing, use the word collaborate and then bad mouth everyone. I can't tell if it's the agency, office or industry? Thoughts?
How does one go about negotiating a late start date in a new role? Starting some interview processes now and hoping to be able to delay a start date until early Oct. I see this happen frequently enough (offer is accepted with a start date 2 mos out) but I was wondering if there are any tactics to this or if it’s generally purely situational? Interviewing can take a while so that buys me some time...
I’m looking at the possibility of using Book Taco in my classroom. Has anyone used it? If so, what are your thoughts on it?
Currently making around 95 and next year is promotion year. Interviewing with Amazon next week, what base salary range should I ask for?
Interested in hearing more about the strategy work at Deloitte, re- culture, work, and compensation from a POC POV. Heard a couple folks say Deloitte is the way to go, but would like more info. Thanks
Has anyone taken one of those online executive courses, like the Harvard Extension School offers? Looking to use my $5k of tuition reimbursement and already have an MBA. Worth it? Best programs?
On an E2 with current company and have an offer from another firm and now thinking they logistics. Should I hold off quitting until the new E2 is successful just in case it’s denied? Will applying for a second visa flag a problem?
How do you all think remote working is influencing gender dynamics in your teams? I wonder if/how relying on virtual comms with no in-person interactions will help or hurt things.
Have a final interview with 5 people today, but slept horribly with only two hours a sleep. Any quick tips to get wake and focused?

What is the internal partner promotion to external hire ratio at your firm? (And similar ratio at public firms for PPMD or partner equivalent )
Interviewing for a senior project manager role in Salesforce CSG. Can anyone tell me about the role, culture, WLB, etc at Salesforce? Is WLB and culture really as good as they claim?
Deloitte folks What funds do you invest in your 401k? When I look I don’t even see the basics of VOO, VTI or VSTAX. I’m in the retirement fund and want to get out of it but don’t know what to pick
Does anyone have a way to help me learn and better understand gender issues? ( a good youtube video to watch- a PD link, anything. ).
I’ve been through 5+ weeks of interviews with a company that will IPO next year and they did a bait and switch on me with the offer: it was advertised as “Head of” and then during the offer-walk-through-meeting today they said “oh btw we changed the title to ‘Senior Manager’ for this role”. They offered me a salary I made 4 years ago as a manager. They offered stock options with an exercise price TBD 1 year from now…which is when they’re hitting IPO. Is that normal for stock options?
Is there anyone here from McKinsey or BCG in Montreal willing to chat? Im thinking about applying soon, but I feel like speaking with someone who works there will help me assess if I would love working there (culture, types of projects, etc), and that my interest isnt solely based on prestige/reputation!
best way to gauge what WLB/hours are during the interview process? in the past i’ve asked about team culture but their answers never end up revealing much about this. i feel like it’s frowned upon to come right out and ask about hours, but not sure how else to bring this up
