For me, it was Google, Alexa, Jeep, Pringle’s, NFL / Walmart tie. Very few insights this year. Lots of borrowed interest, and A LOT of ads that shouldn’t have been in the game.

I did laugh out loud at the BudLight Post Malone spot, the MC Hammer spot. The KIA NFL spot (inadvertently?) perpetuates the misconception that the only route out of poverty for African Americans is sports, music/entertainment, or drug dealing.

Google didn’t resonate as much for me. My Aunt is 85 and won’t go near a computer, let alone AI. I know she doesn’t represent all elderly, but most I know can barely handle a smartphone. Plus there’s a jaded part of my soul that thinks that now that Google has this information they will be serving him bespoke advertising non-stop.

I don't think the target was specifically the elderly. They wanted to show that Google has true emotional value, maybe in ways you never considered. But yes, they'll probably be bombarding him with show tunes, and whatever else he remembered that Loretta liked. 😢

Hi all, I would appreciate your thoughts - I’ve been really struggling to adjust to long-term WFH and just have been extremely unhappy with it (feelings of isolation, burnout, hopelessness). I realize I’m not spending time on commute and such, not wearing uncomfortable clothes, but I’m still really miserable. I feel like most of my daily joy used to come from live interaction with people. I know many of y’all are really thriving on WFH and need your help / thoughts on how best to adjust. TIA!!

Why do some companies ask for 8+ YoE + MBA for mid-management positions (Manager, Sr. manager, Associate, Sr. Associate). At 8 YoE the super talented people would probably be looking for director level roles. Wouldn’t it be better to get them at like 3-5YoE?

Hi 🐠, need some advice. Was told by my manager that time doing research (for info related to my client) is not client billable and has to be charged to the overhead code. This strikes me as fundamentally wrong, esp bc this is a flat rate project so the hours will just affect my utilization / internal metrics, not how much the client is billed. I asked for a non-billable code that counts towards utilization but was told my utilization is fine even though I’d be billing <40hrs & to use OH code

I'm a benefits director at a large company, and we're adding a fertility benefit starting Jan 1. It looks a lot like Deloitte's program (just noticing Deloitte a lot in this bowl), though ours will be slightly more generous with lifetime maxes. I'd love your feedback about what your employers do especially well or poorly, just to ensure we don't have huge blindspots as we roll it out from scratch. Honest feedback from people who are on this journey is appreciated!!

I just got laid off from a strategy consulting boutique in the UK that primarily works with PE funds doing CDD/VDD. It goes without saying that the market is terrible. I suspect no strategy firms are hiring and it will need to be an in-house move or if I could stretch it PE/VC. What are people’s thoughts and does anyone have any advice?
