For anyone who took a reduced salary for a reduced work week in this crisis: Is your agency honoring this arrangement? Do the people above you make sure you take the day? Or are they working you twice as hard but paying you less? Did they reduce your team as well and put you in a position where you had to pick up the slack and not honor their commitment to you?

I got a reduced salary and wasn’t offered a reduced week, in fact I’m working more.

Same. Working more on a big pay cut.

Same work on paper but paycut. There's no commute, I like being home, and we're working slightly less because of efficient gains from WFH so it takes a bit of the sting off, but yeah I want that money back. See what you can automate, then spend the time building yourself up.

I was reduced to 80% for a month and a half (back to 100% now). My manager was excellent about making sure I had a day off. It wasn’t the easiest thing to just turn off for a day, but the fact that so many people were in the same situation led to some understanding. I did work more than 80% for a few weeks in there, but it was more like longer days for 4 days with Fridays off.

our reduced salary people are protected on that day. and also the weekends. if their day is friday, and rest of the team works friday and through the weekend, they are not to work friday, and if they work the weekend at all, they get those days back the next week. i totally understand, as they’re the ones getting the pay cut, but it’s not like non-cut employees get the days of the weekend back. anyway, i’m not gonna complain. they’re taking the hit.

20% paycut, no reduction in hours. Although it’s fine because we need the revenue from billable hours and the VP+ paycut is saving lots of jobs.
