What can you do if you don’t have a support system? My only family is my spouse and in-laws. It has been mentally difficult to get out of bed most days. I only worked-out once last week which is unlike me. I’m losing my desire to do things I used to love. Again I don’t really have people I can confide in or at least give me some advice which is why I’m asking here...Thank you!
FIRE folk, do you contribute to a traditional IRA, with the expectation that your income will be lower when you finally hit FIRE and hope for that ~10 tax, so you'll do ladder conversions later or do you do direct Roth or backdoor Roth conversion contributions now? I don't mind the Roth contributions now, but I truly believe we'll have less income when retired. No kids now, but planning to in a couple of years.
Hey friends! I had a delta credit and booked a flight to South east Asia with the credit. Im traveling via Korean Air. I have a lot of credit card points. Any advice on how I can upgrade? Our flight doesn’t come up on Korean since we booked thru delta.
What kinds of questions can I ask to help me figure out if the programming (for senior developer) at a new job will 1. be interesting 2. advance me professionally? At this point this is the main deciding factor between multiple competing offers and I don't know how to get a good, honest sense (everyone and their pet fish claims to be "cutting edge" etc etc).
How do you deal with an ending contract. A client of mine recently ended a contract due to funding. I’m trying to stay motivated that more work will come, but I’m pretty bummed.
I have offers from Deloitte and EY GDS
Completed background verification for EY with first advantage.
Now received mail for BGV from First advantage for Deloitte.
Will it cause any problem?
Planning to join Deloitte.
Thanks in advance.
Has anyone here become car savvy on their own? What resources did you use? Tired of feeling disrespected at the mechanics. I genuinely enjoy building things/understanding how things work (did carpentry as a job in college) but don't want to damage my car and am afraid to try to learn on it
Do you think Lockdowns are coming back?
Anyone from the big 4 have any idea how to figure out the hiring manager at the Big 4? When the job is not posted on LinkedIn/Naukri and only on their website?
I’ve read up on the “IL Fair Tax” proposal being voted on in the Fall and am curious to know other’s opinions. I get the appeal, or at least the perception of fairness, for many voters, but believe if this amendment passes, it will do nothing more than speed up the exodus of higher-comped talent in the state and make us a less attractive place for employers to do business.
If C19 has taught us anything, it’s that much of the U.S. workforce is mobile. I for one prefer warm weather & low taxes.
What's your best performing alt and why?
The freshers these days have started to shield their underperformance by making noise to the hr. Very hard to train freshers these days!
Why is there such a negative perception of Internal Audit careers? I make 155k with 5yoe and I’m fielding offers for 180k all in. Where did this misperception start and what does everyone now think of internal audit.
I have used Dojo and Bloomz in the past. Want to use a classroom behavior management system that doesn’t require me to be logged into an app/site. My upcoming 4th graders are a tough group
Capgemini has offered me 8lpa and I'm getting 10lpa from coforge.
Should I go to capgemini and ask them to increase the offered ctc?
Or joining coforge would be a better decision?

Anyone happy at fcb chicago?
what to do: jr copy at a top 5 agency, but it's too design focused and large to get stuff my stuff produced. Been contacted by GSDM; more appreciation for copy, greater chance to produce. Thoughts?
Ready for the holiday! I’ve never been so excited and anxious to see my family!!! I was ready for this like yesterday haha
We don’t have a planner so our ECD comes up with the strat. ECD’s talented but I wonder: Is this normal for other agencies, especially the small ones? It’s hard to come up with ideas without strat.
It’s absolutely contrarian that this show up on a job application. If we are trying to get away from labeling people, then let’s get away from labeling people. Especially when it goes into very personal specifics. What’s next: Out of 50 shades of gray, which number are you? Or: If gay, please specify bottom or top. (Let’s say I’m versatile, which do I choose!?) Oh, methinks I’ll just stay unemployed then.
Interested in going freelance, how hard is it to line up consistent work? (If you have awards + decent work with a variety of clients)??
DH Philly employee here struggling to cope with the layoffs today. I wasn't personally laid off, but seeing so many coworkers let go has rattled me. Advice?
My partner had an interview where a full naked body (either from a roommate or s/o?) was exposed on the interviewers side of their Zoom background. No apology or acknowledgement towards the situation was ever expressed during/after the interview. She decided to bring it up to HR and they completely brushed it off as well. She is emotionally scarred and in such a slump by the situation and job search in general. Is this normal agency behavior, especially from HR?! So grossed out by the response.
EP+CO any good?
Seeking Junior CEO for the best agency in the world... metabolic syndrome-causing bagel Friday’s!
Is W+K NY still making good work? All the good stuff i see is from Portland, and McD's feels like more of a strategy driven account.
I’m kinda dumb about finances. What is the best thing to do with your 401Ks after you leave an agency/holding company? I just read something and losing my vested amount after 5 years and I’m scared.
What is the expected time you need to give your employer when quitting at creative director level? I’m assuming “two weeks” doesn’t apply at this level.
I’m starting to explore ways to better support juniors. Two questions: For those who hired an intern after their internship ended, what qualities made them a desirable candidate? Two, do you expect interns and juniors to have developed soft skills (meeting and email etiquette etc.) or to learn them on the job - if it’s the latter, who teaches them?
I’m going to design school and hoping to get a design job after but all this talk about a possible recession is freaking me out. I don’t really want to wait anymore I’ve been waiting so long.. advice?
A good agency with incredibly talented people, but the main thing stopping it becoming world class is an ECD who forces bad creative decisions. Stay and pray or move on?
Today, FCB Chicago let go of one of three creative directors who are people of color. Yay for diversity!!!
Real question: If everyone wants to see the work before the internal review, wtf are internal reviews for?
