Women in Advertising

Anyone in a position of power to get ad agencies to subsidize egg freezing? If they’re not going to make any inroads in work/life balance & continue to operate in female-skewed cities ...

I'd rather fight for work/life balance and maternity leave than another way for them to delay life / keep people in the office non-stop / encourage dangerous and torturous procedures for women in the name of work and "perks".

We were saving up for IVF when we found out that my husband, as a city agency employee, got a $50k lifetime fertility allowance. Turned out, I got my own $50k allowance too. I never knew such a thing existed - but it allowed us to sock away what we had been saving, which then paid for daycare. It was life changing. And would be amazing to see anywhere in the private sector.

My partners company (law firm nyc) offers I think up to 8000 for the egg freezing process which is amazing. They call it future family planning.

Also please DM me anyone who knows, because I have a couple of friends at other companies (non-agency) who are literally trying to forge this path for themselves and the women coming up after them, who need ya smarts on how to do it.

Carrot (get-carrot.com) and modern fertility are the two companies on my radar. Any others??

So I’m hearing this from everywhere. What does it take to get companies on board? Granted, my health is shit and I have great birthing hips or something so I’m not in the running currently, but I strongly believe that every woman who wants this option deserves it. Our jobs are our lives now.

I’m pretty sure this is in our benefit package covered under the medical support programs. There’s up to a 10k lifetime benefit for fertility treatments and I think they mentioned it covering egg freezing, but I can’t remember (it’s not something I am looking to do)

Take the Easy associate job that pays more with great brand name, great pay, great benefits, seemingly good manager, but the role isn’t what you want and isn’t as good of a stepping stone OR the difficult manager role that has great role, high impact, helps you learn, good skill development, average benefits, good pay (but not crazy outstanding), solid brand name BUT you don’t know the team/manager well & pay/benefits isn’t as high as the first

Thinking about leaving B4. Will be a senior 1 in tax come October. Been doing some thinking and can’t decide if being in tax long term is for me. Want to transition into finance role. Thinking about leaving to be a finance associate somewhere and wanted to get input as the career paths for these moves. Ultimately want to be a CFO I think. I know pay is variable but in northeast is it substantial? Worth foregoing the chance of being partner? Fear is not making it and then being pigeon holed.

Hi ladies! I am seeking advice as I am torn between between prepping and applying to MBA or FAANG jobs. I currently am at 4.5 YOE, 150K base, engineering manager. My network has advised that an MBA can help pivot careers as I’m exploring content strategy (Netflix). One of my goals is to also work in London. I will add that there is an expectation in my family for higher education and candidly, my longer term goal is a CXO position. Thank you!

Can anyone share how they have terminated/laid off during a virtual only environment? Specifically several people at once. How does the process/logistics look? Wondering what is the best process/logistics to take for those being let go. Also, for those who stay, what worked best -communication wise? How have you handled equipment and any other security considerations given that the person(s) are not in the office.
