CPB London had a dark as fuck day today.

25 of us left the building with envelopes in hand.

That's over 1/3 the company.

Some resigned, most made redundant after loss of infiniti.

Grim times.

I heard in the UK if you are made redundant there are laws that protect you by rotating you onto another account or the agency that won the business. Is that true?

Hey!

My name’s Josh, and I’m a nurse based in Columbus Ohio. Im creating a space (a podcast) for nurses to come and talk about nurse things- the good, the bad, the ugly, and what can change to make nursing better.

So basically the only thing I find appealing about PE is money (judge all you want but I’m sure I’m not alone) - I don’t like excel, or finance, or math.

Long term goal is to marry rich and retire young lol.
