For anyone who took a reduced salary for a reduced work week in this crisis: Is your agency honoring this arrangement? Do the people above you make sure you take the day? Or are they working you twice as hard but paying you less? Did they reduce your team as well and put you in a position where you had to pick up the slack and not honor their commitment to you?
Was on a Delta flight and “Runways” played before almost every piece of entertainment. It doesn’t get old. Incredible every time.
Thoughts on taking interviews gained passively for the sake of staying on top of your game and making connections even if you don't plan on moving
Just want to say i appreciate seeing my (male) boss leave at 6 pm sharp to go pick up his kid. Sets a great example for men and women.
After Googles report on the gender pay gap do you think Ad agencies should do their own to see what discrepancies there are? https://www.google.com/amp/s/www.nytimes.com/2019/03/04/technology/google-gender-pay-gap.amp.html
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?
Thoughts on Saatchi & Saatchi? Looking for people who have interviewed with them and work/have worked there.
Any tips on developing a love for books/reading. ADHD makes it very hard to. Audiobooks don’t help as I zone out. I average one book a year if I force myself. Help...

Hey Grey 🐠- What's your parental leave policy?
￼I am currently unemployed but I am very curious about everyone’s company signature having she/her or he/him or they displayed. Are companies forcing people to write the pronouns you need to choose? I honestly never understood why somebody that wasn’t in the LGBTQ community would ￼specify￼￼, and I know people are doing it to show support but if I started working again I don’t think I would want to put that in my signature. It seems political. What are your thoughts? ￼
Should I leave my agency, where I have good work life balance but shit pay, for blackstone, which will ruin my work life balance but pays double my current salary?
"You're going to sit around a lot, eat like crap and put on weight." Must have missed that lesson in portfolio school.
So we’re all making the zoom/cell phone/ stock anthem spot about how our brands have a big message to stay home now right? Facebook, uber, Oreo, Walmart back to back on Hulu. Who’s next?
It most certainly does!

My manager (VP of marketing) is actively interviewing elsewhere - she has interview slots on her work calendar (can be seen by everyone). Other events are marked private, but all the interviews are not. It’s so weird 😂
I have zero social life and covid is making it worse. Even if most of my free time wasn’t sucked up by the firm, I’m still not sure I’d have much of one. I struggle with making friends and I’m not very extroverted. But I’m over thirty now, still single, and really starting to feel lonely.
Started with EY as an intern, currently a Senior 2 moving to Senior 3 in Oct. Part of Indirect Tax in the New York Metro Area. Reviews and utilization are consistently above peer group average. CPA, no Masters. Currently salary is 77k. I feel like I’m underpaid compared to peers/others when I see threads on Fishbowl. Does this seem low to anyone else? I need a 17% raise to break 90k at Snr 3, which I’d be bummed to not get after EY preached about high raises. New job searching level bummed 😔.
What do most folks use Pitchbook subscriptions for. Debating whether worth the cost or they just scrape public data esp when my current role targets $6-50M ARR SaaS companies. Has anyone found their research requests to be good?
How would I go about getting an adderall script? I was diagnosed with ADHD in the 2nd grade however my parents took me off the pills due to weight loss and change in mood. Recently since WFH I’ve been feeling a surge in distraction and inability to focus at tasks at hand. Through friends of friends, I’ve had Adderall a few times and I’ve felt the focus I need to get through my work. I would be interested in obtaining a script; anyone here in NYC know of doctors that could diagnose/prescribe me?
Just got an invitation for a female network at my company. Am I the only one who does not fully agree with professional networks at work only based on gender? And if you like these kind of networks can you maybe explain why? I am trying to get a more nuanced view on this
My client's last line in every email is 'we need this as soon as possible.' I really want to tell him to f-off because they still owe us stuff to be able to finish their return.

Layoffs — has anyone’s company / firm “assured” them there would be no layoffs during this crazy time? And if so, how much truth do you think there is behind that?
