I’m taking a few calls for new opps at a couple different firms and wanted to get a pulse on feelings from folks who actually work there to help me narrow it down. Agencies are: Weber Shandwick, Ruder Finn, FleishmanHillard and a smaller boutique called LifeSci Communications. From The sounds of other threads on here, I’m nervous about WS. Looking for a read on Work/Life balance, how well staffed they are, avg pay range (VP level), PTO/holidays/benefits, etc. So, how do you like working there?

Hi fellow desi fishes! Assuming most of us in North America gets 20 days of vacations annually, how do you plan for your visits to India.

So sick and tired of my work. Not burnt out and just went on vacation but hate what I do. Still studying for my CPA but have to imagine there’s something better out there than accounting.

Do any media agencies offer unlimited PTO? Seems like only new aged social or creative agencies have that option.
Legit question: now that 90% of you all don’t have an expense account or travel, why are you doing consulting? Wlb and pay are shit, professional dev opps are good but can be developed in 2-3 years - so why not leave after

What do u tell strangers that u do for a living when u don't want to explain what a big 4 auditor is
For those who left big law - is there such a thing as a 9-5 legal job? Doesn’t have to pay nearly close to big law salary, as long as I’m free to have dinner with my family and watch my kid grow up. No hate, please - I know big law is not for everyone and it’s definitely not for me. For context, I have no debt and I’m about to have my first child. I’m a 4th year corporate associate.
