I briefly worked at an Omnicom agency and although they screamed to the top of their lungs about being a champion for diversity and individuality, I still felt like I was not 100% wanted there. My supervisor, a white woman gave me the silent treatment before I left, and HR didn’t even have enough common decency to give me an exit interview. I also felt that just because there were other people who looked like me at this agency, many of them were really just looking out for themselves. As a junior, it was very disappointing to witness such microaggressions and lack of empathy for someone who has not been in this industry that long.


Thank you for sharing.

What is the EY Global Services group like?

We are having difficulty with managing employee absences. Most seem as if they don’t care about termination. What have others done to motivate hourly employees to come to work? We have changed schedules, offered perfect attendance bonuses, replaced the points system, etc.

I'm currently a second year analyst heading for promotion at a T2 firm. I'm also interviewing with MBB in the coming weeks. My goal is to apply for MBA programs in a year or two from now. What would be the best work experience for my applications? Would it make more sense to stick with my firm and start taking on more responsibility as a consultant / associate? Or would it make more sense to start from square 1 at a better brand (MBB)

I was just told I have to work this weekend, but I have a friend visiting and she paid a lot for her flight. I think it’s rude to not show her the city. Advice on what to do?


One of the best thing of the job is you won't be stuck with the same people. I'm so glad I'll roll off soon and it's been so frustrating to deal with some ppl on my team.

My agency is hiring junior creatives! (Teams or solo) DM your books! *remote*


A colleague shared with me the presentation they have prepared for their promotion case. I worked with them on multiple projects during the year and I can clearly see that some of the claims on the deck are wild exaggeration or lies. For example, managed changes in scope for Project X including contract changes. Plot twist: there never was a change of scope for Project X and the contract is exactly the same. How can people be so dishonest? How far can you go before truth catching up?


On a flight (yes, but not for work) and a morbidly obese person next to me is all up in my space - there is no way for this person not to touch me. If people cannot fit into standard seat sizes (cont)

Serious post: Using bullet points, how would you list out your day to day job duties? Wondering if it varies for all. Ex: - prepare letters and motions for lawyer - prepare hearing notebooks - assist attorney with managing deadlines - file court documents ...
