My neighbors don’t understand that we are social distancing and I have heard visit come to their apartment twice today 😤
We Are Social
I’m looking for a screening tool that will assess a candidate’s proficiency with MS-Teams. Would anyone know if there is such a thing that exists?
Workday HELP! I need an amazing consultant or contact who can help us fix our workday woes. I’m not in charge of workday but I’m determined to fix it. We have massive issues with the complexity and ever changing security/permissions/workflows implemented by our system analysts. Every couple of months it changes and we all have to relearn simple tasks again. The analysts try to blame the users but I know it’s more than that.
If you are feeling sick or something during the day and WFH, do you feel comfortable napping it off and then getting back to work and working late if needed? I have friends that say this is totally normal and okay but I feel weird about it and can never actually rest to feel better if I do lay down
Where o where is my motivation 🎶

What makes a winning treatment?
Anyone interested in podcasts about advertising? I’m thinking about starting one as a challenge to myself and a way to help (myself and) others learn. The premise that a couple of creative guests and I would sit down and try to crack a brief in an hour (or at least an edited hour). Any initial reactions to the concept? Sound like something you’ve heard of already? Good? Boring? Tell me all of your opinions.
Buncha ad nerds crawling over each other for trinkets😂…great/sad moment in awards show history. https://www-adweek-com.cdn.ampproject.org/c/s/www.adweek.com/agencies/1991-clio-awards-inside-the-most-shocking-night-in-advertising-history/amp/
Recently learned that some agencies have a ‘rate card.’ Is it literally a menu? “Print ads, $1000 bucks.” What is it. What’s on it. How much.
What happens when “creative is driven by data” 😖
[Finishing a Zoom meeting] Account person who’s taking vacation early: See you next year. Me:
Should I notify people that they’re my reference ? I already gave the agency their email but should I let them (the references) know ?
I was just offered to get a promoted offer (from AS to VP,AD) at a different company, but I have been wanting to transition off to non-advertising gigs especially pharma. Does it make sense to sign the new offer first and keep searching, or get out when I can out of advertising? I took the interview a while ago thinking I still wanted to be in advertising but had gradual shift in heart..
I’m planning to buy the study materials for the SHRM-CP certificate through Amazon. What are the best ones to obtain?
Is ageism worse in the U.S. than in Europe/ the UK? Specifically curious to hear how London compares to NY.
Are tucks MBB numbers really that good? I saw a student on Reddit say about 35 mbb internships were granted in their year out of about 150 applicants (70-90 interviews per firm). Not sure what to make of this. Additionally, is it true that the battle is to get interviews and once you get one, then it’s just a matter of you performing (I.e., you’re no longer competing against classmates)?
Are there any CA family law firms looking to contract out work (legal research, drafting briefs, disclosures, forms, discovery, etc.)? I have over 6 years of experience and am well-versed in family code and case law. (My attorney is on family leave so we don't have the workload I'm used to right now, and my husband might be switching jobs with a pay cut, so it wouldn't hurt to earn some extra money.)
Companies need to not dilute diversity with this whole diversity of thought jibberish - there are real issues re: bias, race, gender and respect in the workplace. Education around how to build better
Boy do I love working on my boss’ idea that I know the client isn’t going to go for. What a great use of my time this lovely evening!
Has anyone ever completely bombed a bcg round 2 interview and still gone through to next round?
One of my friends of ~3 mths is into me. I’m into him too. But, he has a child with special needs and what our friends tell me is a vindictive ex spouse. I’m never married no kids and my life is smoooooth. I’m wondering if this is too much baggage for me from the get go?
Looking to take advantage of my company being virtual while I can, and I want to do July/Aug working outside of my home city; ideally anywhere with mountains (eg Montana). I wouldn’t mind doing it alone, but there are limited options that are quite expensive. Any recommendations for finding a potential travel partner to go in on housing? None of my friends are virtual anymore.
Where do ppl park in Waikiki? We rented a car for a week and the hotel only has valet parking… idk if we’re down to pay $50+ each night. Any recommendations or advice?
Question for HC 🐠 of color. If you were offered a role at a company where there was little to no diversity within the group you were interviewing for (not even at the level you were interviewing for, or at senior leadership level) would this be a red flag for you in terms of culture, & potential opportunities? I want to keep an open mind but this company has been around for 20 years. The people I interviewed with were great but im concerned that there’s a larger problem at play. Thoughts?
Examples of billing narratives for strategy discussion with your partner about tasks related to an acquisition closing? Thank you!
Anyone here work at Applied Value Group? They reached out and I wanted to learn about the work, culture, pay, and international opportunities (something I am Interested in)

Just joined a small consulting firm, like the work and the people so far. They hired me at a lower level and salary for lack of BD experience, with the expectation that I perform and earn a promotion in 3-6 months. I have another better offer with a larger product based company that’s setting up its consulting business as one of the early hires. Is there a nice way I can leverage offer 2 with company 1? I’ll feel terrible about leaving tbh. This would also be my 1st job in the country.
On my 3rd job in 2 years (consultant for a year, then left for a new company that was impacted by COVID). My new role is not very interesting and can be very pigeon holed at times. The pay and benefits are top notch, which are keeping me here. Is it too soon to jump again for something I’m more interested in or is it better to wait?
New Partner. My other partners want to change benefits and perks around to attract more young talent - I need to brainstorm ideas. What great thing does a company offer that makes you want to work there (besides compensation obviously)?
MBB - What % of your company is super competent, great at managing others, and good natured? Do you ever feel like the people you work with are incompetent or bad at their job?
A hostile takeover at Occidental with a price war and coronavirus is like the plot of a movie.
