Aargh! This month I’m filling in for a CD who dictates all headlines have Title Case, no periods, and no Oxford comma. Teams under me and supervising ECD have always followed her lead. WWYD?

Duh, don't use headlines. Make the visual prominent and/or make the headlines sub heads, with whatever grammar you like.

Just follow the standards that are in the brand’s style guides. You may disagree with some instances but no one can argue with you staying true to the brand, especially when it’s all been signed off on by superiors and clients.

Another laid off case here. Anyone moving out of US considered keeping the 401K as is instead of withdrawing? Any pros / cons to keep in mind ? Pro I see is no penalty and the fact that it'll continue to grow till I turn 65. Con is that it's a decent size amount in my case and I might need some if that cash if I don't get a job soon 🙄

I wish that instead of layoffs or furloughs they’d offer working, homeschooling parents half time/half pay temporarily or some other modified schedule. I am going insane trying to juggle everything!

Anyone have generator recommendations? Are there any that aren’t obscenely loud? Moved to a northern state with lots of snow and have a baby arriving during winter. Thinking I’d like to get a backup generator to give me peace of mind.

How in the world are people staying fit in consulting when every Marriott I stay at has a cookie and a beer waiting for me at check-in?! It’s like they know how little discipline I have

Do any of the top consulting firms hire into the Engagement Manager level after an M7 (if they had manager experience elsewhere)? I know MBB probably doesn’t but what about other tier 2 firms after that - and asking for US or Canada

When it comes down to it, is it true that the amount you are unassigned or if any of your teammates are unwilling to give you any work when asked is a good indicator of getting fired in the near futur
