3. Is it a good time to move, given all the layoffs?
Still looking for work 2 1/2 years later. I was laid off when Covid hit as a Director of food and beverage in West Hollywood /Beverly Hills, relocated to Omaha Nebraska with the same organization to open a property. Laid off after the opening. I’ve been doing Task Force work since. Looking at vice president or Director roles hotels/restaurant companies! I have applied everywhere, nothing but ghosting treated disrespectfully, offered horrible salaries or told positions on hold. Need a Job
I wanted to screenshot the good bits but honestly the entire article is gold. Woman gets fired from KPMG UK for a series of very bizarre events, such as installing a rice cooker in a meeting room.
A reminder to all: we are going through very difficult times. Please help someone who has gotten laid off if you can!
What got you fired or almost fired?
Are the layoffs finished? Or are they still going on? I am trying to figure out if I in the green for now.
I just got laid off, and I’m not even mad about the job, but they literally didn’t even tell my CD before they let me go, then asked me not to tell anyone before they announced it to the network. I’m sorry, but on what planet am I not hanging up from that call and immediately calling my CD? Which is exactly what I did. They locked me out of my computer so I couldn’t even pass off files, plus it locked me out MID-call where I was being let go. Very professional. Also, my CCO didn’t even know. 🖕🏻
Have a big interview tomorrow. The question I dread the most is about why you’re looking for a new job. The honest answer is that there isn’t enough work to go around at my agency and I want to get ahead of the inevitable layoffs. What’s the best way to tell them this? Do I just make something else up entirely?
Is it normal to get fired for missing things in corporate/m&a due diligence doc review?

Got laid off in tech corp dev making 250-300 all in. Have an offer to join a fairly new family office investment team in PE buyouts but will be a fairly significant cash pay cut vs what I was making in tech corp dev. I’ve always been interested in doing investing. All things being equal, is there better upside to take the fam office to do PE (at a pay cut for now), or go do another corp dev job? 6-7 YOE
I've heard rumors of another round of layoffs to happen this Friday... Anybody else aware of this?
I got laid off as a AE, do you think I would be happy as a media planner? Before AE I assisted in media buying. My passion is client relations hence the AE path
A little over a year ago, I posted about my boss making constant comments about my salary. Most comments said I must not have been performing well. I want to update that he was fired, not me.

How do you deal with friends who only want to talk about dating and boys? I get it we are in a place in our lives (late 20s) but surely we can talk about other stuff. I don’t want to come off bitter ( I’m pretty single mainly bc I don’t feel like prioritizing it right now) but it’s frustrating they won’t ask about anything else

Thoughts on FCB Health?
Hey Fishes, I accepted and singed an offer from deloitte USI. However, I am joining another firm with higher package. Would I be blacklisted in future if I drop a mail to HR telling I decline the offer after I signing? Also my background verification has also started. Please suggest
Account manager here. Bust my ass to make my creatives happy and provide pertinent information. Yet, I still have the basic “account” persona. What’s the deal, creatives? Legit asking how to appease.
I have been promised a promotion three times now, but when the time comes, I'm told I'm not there yet. Why promise something if you clearly don't want to execute it?
I got rejected for B4 FDD after interviews this fall... Would another attempt after this busy season be reasonable or not really if the partners didn't like me this time around?
Going into 4th busy season at Pdubs

How many times have you been laid off? I’m seeing a lot of people describe getting laid off 2 or 3 or even 4 times in their careers...should I just expect to get laid off every couple of years in advertising?

When did I turn the corner and just stop caring?
Maybe caring isn't the right word. I just stopped stressing about the work, stopped caring about it being perfect, having award-winning ideas. I do my best, put out good quality. But I just don't fight any battles any more. I make the logo bigger. I change the background photo. I'm agreeable, friendly, great to work with but care more about going home at 5pm than making the work "award-winning".
