Is time off/vacation and sick time negotiable with WPP? Specifically Ogilvy NY prior to accepting an offer? Heard it’s only 10 days of PTO. That’s crazy 🥴
Level of interest in midterms is 73% among seniors, 35% among young voters. If you’re sick of the country being run by old people scared of immigrants and “socialism,” be a voter. Make a plan NOW.
What would you do if you have way less clients than your peers? Do you wait until you are assigned more clients or speak up? I'm a high performer but not utilized to my fullest capacity.
Random - Does anyone want a custom laser engraved cutting board, charcuterie board, or Yeti Mug made for a holiday gift or for yourself? I can do it for $39 plus shipping. I’m looking to take pictures of sample work products to start an Etsy shop but need a customer first to even start 🙈 DM for more info!
What are some “fair” news sources? I’m sick of both extreme sides. It’s overwhelming trying to figure out what’s accurate anymore.
Please stop sending me invites to join Fishbowl. I'm already here and I feel my utilization dropping rapidly!
Do you actually ask for PTO or just let them know? I’ve always just told me Manager when I plan on taking it and that’s it. Not really a “can I” but a “so I’ll be off these days”. Granted I usually
I'm a self-contained teacher of about 9 students with differing levels of autism or intellectual disability. If the board decides that our school is going all virtual, how am I going to teach them??? They require different accommodations at school they don't have at home..
Team activity to go to a theme park. 10 weeks and haven’t told anyone at work. Pretending to feel sick or disinterested. I’ve already made up food poisoning to explain diet changes. Lies are tough!

Hey 🐠. Team is supposed to be off this wk, but instead is working M-W and the Partner said that this is a “PRD” week, meaning that we are not billing (getting utilization). Is this against policy?
Say there was a medical device that could optimize your brain to function to its fullest potential (think Limitless movie) - it’d make you ultra intelligent & peak your performance. It’s safe and offered to you free, but the catch is you have to listen to a 30 second sponsored ad in your head every hour on the hour. Would you get it?
If somebody were to put in their 2 week notice prior to the Holiday shutdown, would you get paid for the holidays or would they terminate your employment once you log off for break?
Has anyone bought a Black Friday or Cyber Monday electronic that’s helped with their work? Trying to find some ideas to treat myself. Hope everyone’s having a nice holiday weekend!
Just curious...for those that work at Facebook, Twitter, TikTok, social media companies...how do you limit your screen time? Are you so sick of social media at work that you don’t care about it when you get home? Do you let your kids have access?
A3 up for senior. Strong PDs on about 60% of snapshots, utilization just over 100% and over 400 overtime hrs. Chances I'm a tier 1? Was a tier 3 my first 2 yrs but had a very strong year. 😁
Long story short - my nanny has many conservative values - mom shaming breastfeeding in public, gender specific roles, considering boys better than girls etc. it never bothered me before and I have learned to co exist with her however now my toddler is speaking and understanding more I am worried about him being influenced by her. Further she also has comments against my SO being too involved parent & calling out son as cutie, hugging toddler etc as he is a boy. Contd..
do your parents know your salary?
How does one start the negotiation process with company that made a new offer? I have the comp details from them but it’s below what I’d be expecting for 2022 TC if I were to stay in consulting. Additionally, the base offered was lower than what the external recruiter i was working with had shared. Should I bring that up or go straight to the negotiation?
Ever been promoted at your firm while on a project and you have to be rolled off bc your billable rate is higher than what the client has budgeted? Or does your firm find this as an opportunity to renegotiate the SoW?

Hey team - would appreciate your feedback I'm currently a SC at Guidehouse making ~$100k. Very bored but considered a strong employee and on manager track. I have an offer to join D GPS as an SC with 20-30% more pay. The work would be similar. If I stay at Guidehouse I would likely apply for an MBA in Fall 2021. But if I join D, that would delay an year and I would apply in Fall 2022. What would you recommend from MBA and career sense? At this point, I'd be applying for an MBA at age 31/32.
