How is everyone doing in ecvc? Are hours down? Any hiring freezes or layoffs? I’m not sure how these teams can stay as they are being so bloated after everyone switched to the practice over the past two years.
Has anyone survived a large round of layoffs at their company? Very curious about how you navigated that brave new world.
I’m in dire need of a job. I was recently laid off and was told it would take 3+ months for unemployment to review my claim. My depression is getting worse by the second. I barely got any severance pay to pay my bills. I’m looking for entry level BA and consulting jobs if anyone could help. Thank you.

Just got laid off. Why hire so many people if you don’t have the work to support the staff? We can’t always control our bench time. This firm really is the fucking worst
With all the rolling layoffs happening in the city this year, are any good account directors hanging out here, and also creative teams? We are looking for some additional support on a project
I was told that severance would be 1 months pay for every year at the agency. Just found out when they did layoffs recently they only gave 1 week for every year. Is that negotiable?!
How are the projects coming along? Has there been a major impact on the consulting shops? Are layoffs expected ? 🐠 from Strategy&, BCG, Mckinsey, OW, Kearney please answer!

A former coworker was laid off today, along with a few other people. She’s a Public Relations Executive, with lots of music and entertainment experience. I know these are hard times, but if you know about an agency or brand in need of staff members or freelancers, please don’t hesitate to reach out 🙏🏻 Thanks!
Unpopular opinion: I would rather be promoted “too early” and fired shortly thereafter because I didn’t perform up to expectations than be held back to “set me up for success” without getting a chance to prove myself at the next level. Does anyone else feel similarly?
I have an opportunity working for my dream company but I was told my salary expectations were too high. I was using my last job as a reference since this is a lateral move (I was laid off a few weeks ago). Was I overpaid or is this company just cheap?
Former TC: ~140k (125k base + 30k sign-on paid over 2 years + 50k RSUs w/4 years to vest)
YOE: 5+ years total; 2 years as PM
Laid off while on maternity leave, as part of larger agency layoffs. Any legal ramifications to consider?
I got in a little bit of trouble today. Has anyone gotten fired and did you get another job?
Is anyone else anxious that these media layoffs are going to saturate our market even more than it already is? 🌝

Hi there! I was hired at a startup to run a department, coach, manage, and to occasionally assist with enterprise accounts myself. After 10 months, I’m still in a player-coach position with continued responsibilities being added to my plate. I feel I’m unable to truly coach my team due to my own deliverables. I’d really like to start applying elsewhere, but I’ve never left a position this quickly. In your opinion, will 10 months in a role look poorly even if my other roles were 2+ years?

How do you deal with overly sensitive colleagues or team members? Im experiencing a slight culture shock in the way my current company nurtures its culture.
