Unprofessional Topics 🙃

Don't mean to be political. Does anyone understand why the justice system can be so unfair? 45 just got asked to simply pay back $2m he embezzled from charities. U or I would be in jail for much less.

Have you seen the Clinton affair? It's on A&E I think. It's pretty wild. You can almost see Hillary pulling the strings (ie Bill has ALWAYS been her puppet on the road to the presidency) to keep Monica from talking. I'm on the left side of politics, but I'm with you guys. It's everyone in the system... So to answer the question, yes I reallllyyyy want to go there on both sides of the aisle. If only just for the entertainment value of it all... But hopefully things would get better if we didn't let all these guys get away with this stuff in general? Idk, genuinely curious what y'all think.

That's because rich people own this country and the rules don't apply to them

And it will only get exponentially worse because with more money comes more power to tilt the scales of justice in their favor.

I hate age bias. But I fear staying in CD roles at ad agencies will lead to be stressing to find freelance work when I’m 45 or so. I know Cannes winners 40+ out of work. Client side seems safer.

This might be an unpopular opinion but I am going to say it. Women expecting equal salary, equal opportunities for promotion etc. do not expect men to pay for dates, open the door etc. Women can also do that. Lead by example and drive the change please.

Ugh no pay increase and then only 2.5k YE bonus. Seems underwhelming; are there no YE increases if you get promoted in summer? As a staff, we got pay bumps every 6mos.

My brother is a mechanic with 10+ years experience but was laid off due to COVID. He's having a hard time even finding jobs to apply for and asked me for advice. I don't even know what someone can do without a degree. He has valuable hard skills but I just don't think there's a demand in NYC right now. Should I advise him to go to school? He'd have to fully finance his degree and I'm just not sure if it's worth it for him to start over at the bottom, or what industry he'd even fit in...

I’m tired of how projects throw away analyst like trash. Client didn’t sign SOW (no $) and leadership has been assuring us for weeks, and confirmed extension with HR, etc. Feels bad. Thoughts?

Anyone else feel like there is a culture of fear in their firm? There are so many problems but I’m worried that I’ll get laid off if I tell leadership about them and/or speak up. I only feel empowered to speak up in anonymous settings and even then I’m still paranoid about being exposed and my firm doesn’t take anonymous comments seriously.
