An ECD of mine fired me after I talking me out of quitting, then talked shit about me to literally the most prominent headhunter in advertising. This was 20 years ago. Now he wants to be friends on Facebook. WWYD?

Any chance you have work in your book that you didn’t contribute to? Saw a post of an ecd regarding a former cd hire.

Wait, so what happened with the linkedin post? How did he handle it? Who was it? What’s the campaign(s)? Famous work? So curious!

Ignore. Maybe it makes them feel better about themselves for reaching out. But you don’t have to engage.

Curious to know who the most prominent headhunter in the business is.

(See how Herbie on Piano is by far the most prominent?)

I got laid off 6 months ago. Next week I finally start a new in-house job in the media industry. Looking back, I’m pretty sure I walked the plank off a sinking ship. But I’ll miss you crazy fishes 😘

I messed up. Told my roommate I would contribute to pay for a small couch since she sold the one she brought to our apartment with her for $ (got laid off). I am 21 and on a crazy strict budget. She is showing me $500-800 couches, while I was thinking of Facebook marketplace couches. If I could, I would give her the $ in the blink of an eye, but I literally CAN’T 😭 How do I tell her this after I already said I would? I know, I messed up here - salvageable?

Here is how KPMG handled an announcement today re: a RIF: We’ll be laying off people. We can’t tell you when. can’t tell you how many people. We can’t give you any details. But we WILL send you an email after this call with FAQs and the severance policy. ...no email was sent. So, now 1,000 employees are going to bed tonight confused and irritated AF.

Seems like a lot of questions on partner comp and net worth. Here is the rule of thumb: 1) Big 4 partners make $600K to $1.5m based on seniority and practice. 2) MBB partners make $1m -3m based on seniority Typically your expenses are between $100-300k. Add Taxes to it, that’s the amount you add every year. About 6-10% return yearly on the savings. So net worth of partners are probably between $3m to $20m depending on which company and seniority, investment profile, etc. Where am I wrong?

Is this reasonable or am I missing something? I started maxing my 401k from year 1 and I hope to have $5 million or more by the time I retire around 60. Wouldn’t it make sense to put all of my yearly $19,500 401k contribution to ROTH 401k instead of traditional 401k? My reasoning is that I would pay 35% tax now and my remaining 65% would grow tax-free in ROTH 401k…. versus traditional 401k where I deposit 100% but every distribution will be taxed 35% assuming I make a lot in retirement.
