Not sure which agency or region you’re in, but employees in the US have been begging for concrete initiatives and didn’t get them until Thursday night. Still had a leadership person ask me to come in for an internal meeting this upcoming week, so not sure how impressed I am with the response.

The problem is that every communication is being routed through a ‘decision making team’ and that slows every communication down. Local leadership is not empowered to share with their staff because Groupe wants the messaging to be consistent across. In their minds, consistent means exactly the same words. 

A week?! I got the notice on Thursday

Thank you OP/Publicis corporate communications... anyone reading these boards the last few weeks knows well that Publicis tried to do everything to keep people there, including shaming them for going home, while making empty statements that only served to release them of liability. They've only spoken now because their hand was forced... and because they are one of the last in the industry.

I like that he did it personally. Maybe late but it feels like he cares. Never like Arthur or thought he could hold Maurice’s lunch box. But maybe there is hope for Publicis yet. (Signed former Public employee from the good old days)

Working remotely from Canada on tourist visa? I am planning to take a 15 day trip to Canada from US but most of that time I will be at my relatives place and not going out much. I was thinking I'll work from there for a week and take rest off? Tourists are generally not authorized to work but this is remote work and my employer has no offices in Canada.

Back in the day, I did my own PR, sales & marketing for whatever business idea I was running with at the time. What’s a good remote sales opportunity I can do anywhere in the world that won’t be painful or too high touch? Where I can use my social & business skills (markets, law, cloud, publishing, media, logistics, algos, social media, books, ebooks, design, podcasting, marketing, press release writing, voiceover, journalism) to earn a few extra shillings?

I’ve been totally buried in work for the last 2.5ish months and it’s taken a toll on me. I’m feeling very burned out, to the point where my productivity has tapered off over the past two weeks and I’m no longer able to bill the hours I want. I genuinely try, but at a certain point each day (usually around 6.5 hours) I just feel like I can’t do it anymore. My family is urging me to take PTO to recharge, but I’m too scared about losing more hours to actually do it. Does anyone have any advice?
