Just heard the news about Omnicom’s impending layoffs. How likely do you think this kind of news will come from WPP as well? I heard that finances were solid but you never know!
OMC, PUB, WPP, HAVAS SVP&EVPs: those of you who got March bonuses : would you be willing to return them to fund salary for employees laid off bc if virus?
Got fired from agency. Had to relocate out of pocket. WPP accidentally pays me 15 days later. Loving the glitch. Out of integrity I reported it. Their response was everything but thankful. (Cont.)
What can you realistically negotiate as a severance package from a WPP shop (before signing)? Last I worked for them it was two months...any intel?
Considering recent WPP issues and Ogilvy layoffs, would you say Vayner is a safer bet to work for? They seem to be one of the few agencies that are flourishing when the rest are taking a beating

I'll be joining the consulting world very soon and am thinking about getting a new personal credit card. My meal expenses are per diem so I'm thinking about the AmEx Gold card as it has 4x points on dining. I was wondering if anyone had any suggestions on personal cards for consultants and how to go about my corporate card as well! TIA

Did PWC announce layoffs today? Or were they more targeted / based on performance and utilization? My partner just met with HR 😢

Can anyone recommend good books or articles on startup org charts and hiring? Think we’ve hit early signs of product/market fit, but not sure who to hire next, in what order, and how the org should evolve over next few years.

What’s the best way to explain per diem?
That moment when the call admin mutes your line when your kid starts crying in the background...
For people who start a new job in the remote environment, where’d you start and how was it? Easier than before, about the same, or more difficult?
Was referred by an MD at a firm for his practice; recruiter reached out for availability - then proposed a time…I totally forgot to confirm the proposed time (which has now passed) then I misspelled her name in my panicked apology note. What a start to the day…it’s a great role too
Hey 🐠! As a 26M with an Engineering (not Computer) degree outside the US at good but not great school, and 2YOE in IT consulting + 2.5YOE in Management consulting, would a Masters in CS/MBA at a T15 school make my profile much more atrractive to FAANG PM or SW Engineer roles in the US? Besides also having the skills, of course. Trying to plan the next steps in my career Thanks a lot!
