Curious about this too. Is agency leadership transparent about finances and client updates?

likefunny

Honestly we’ll never know because leadership’s role is to always steer the ship and not cause panic. So it’s always a beautiful picture until it’s time to let people go.

Look the plans for cost reduction aren’t final and are still being worked through across the groupe. My advice is hope for the best, prepare for the worst. We may or may not be in better shape than other holding cos but you’re mistaking a lack of action for no action. It’s coming.

So far

I think my friend is about to make a huge mistake and I need additional arguments for why the following is a bad idea: friend got an offer as an associate at an AmLaw 1000 firm (similar to Polsinelli) and an offer as a staff attorney at a non-market V100. Because the staff attorney firm is more prestigious, friend is leaning that way. I’ve been trying to tell them it’s a terrible idea since it’ll be hard to get another associate role after that.

I'm a Microsoft Dynamics and C# Developer at a Big 4 consulting firm. But... working with Dynamics for the last 5 or 6 years is starting to wear on me.

Maybe this is more of a rant or I'm letting off steam, but has anybody on here ever essentially gone from a specialized type of roll to more general role?
