Margin profitability- for junior staff. Stupid.

IMHO I think it's fair to feel blindsided when your performance reviews say that you're doing fine and you get fired.

And it's not a good business practice to burn bridges with people - most of my acquaintances who felt blindsided mentioned that they'll make their life goal to block their previous employer in any future projects.

Stop saying you had a great rating, awards, X% utilization. If you are on the bench with nothing in sight. Be proactive and look for another job. Did you think the Partners were going to pay for your salary? Clients do!

Don't mean to be obnoxious, it's for those that feel blindsided by their firm and wonder why they got laid off. I have nothing to gain, just paying it forward. Something I wish I knew early on in my career.

My friend's boss said working with Deloitte is difficult because they laid off a key person on the project without giving anyone any notice. He thought the Deloitte SC would follow up on all meeting action items. If the client had known that the Deloitte person was going to leave, they would have done things differently. Not only ex-Deloitters are mad, clients are too.

@OP, people who (have all the great rating, awards, 90+% utilization) were staffed / on client site were still laid off. How do you explain that?!

Single mom in mid 30s, which place is better to live NYC or Greenwich CT?

Completed 3 years at the firm, have been promoted to senior and feel completely drained out. There is no work life balance. If you perform well - you get more work. If you find it difficult to say no, the managers keep on sending more stuff your way even though they are well aware that you are swamped and can only handle so much at a time.
The non-performers who are on unplanned PTOs during deadline weeks are also promoted.

Meanwhile i was trying for Product manager roles. I attended 3 rounds for PM in a company they are now ready to give a Product owner role. Is it a good transition. Will I be able to learn business aspects and move towards PM with this role

#opportunity #acd I'm a ACD / CW, just took a full time job after freelancing for awhile & I need to hire a partner. Based in NYC and I'd love to work with another woman. The agency didn't have a great rep but is turning itself around and I really like the new female ECD / chief creative who is incredible. I wasn't planning on going full time at all, I love the freelance life, but this seemed like a good opportunity for mentorship & I will transparent about pay (it's good. $$ is power) DM me
