Anybody has had any major client business related fails. For me an interesting one was we questioning CEO why they have not done (a rather obvious) cross sell to which he actually replied ‘we didn’t get around to it, but that feels like a good idea and an opportunity’ it probably costed the firm about 10-20% in profit p.a. for 10 odd years. I was amazed and horrified at the same time that he said it coz I would have been fired for much less
Does anyone else think the Delta variant will lead to shutdowns and layoffs again? I want to leave my job but fear being the first to get the chop if March 2020 repeats itself. Should I just jump ship already? If it helps, I’m not in travel PR.

A friend was told their firm will cut ties EOY if certain things don’t improve. Friend had planned to quit in the next year anyway (to start their own business), so there is no real incentive to bend over backwards. Friend’s goal is to keep the income for a little longer, but to minimize conflict / headaches. What’s the best move here? Wait until EOY and take the severance? Give 6 / 9 / 12 months’ notice now? Is there such a thing as too much notice? Could too much notice backfire?
Severance package negotiation? Any tips? Expecting a meeting with hr - I’m confident I’ll be sacked soon.

For those of you that got coached-out/fired from PA, what was the conversation like leading up to it?
Just got fired. Not surprised and kind of relieved but ego is bruised. Anyone got any stories of when they got fired/laid off and it turned out for the better?
I quit before the company laid off a few people on my department. Missed out on the severance package. I wish I had waited a few days to resign. Pretty sure I would’ve been one of them. I wouldn’t have cared either way.

Big 4 manager looking to make a switch to MBB. Any tips on the application process and do I have to take a step down in rank?
Hi all. Need an advice. I got a job as front end developer in pharma advertising agency 3 years ago. Started at 65k yearly salary. Next year got a raise to 80. A year after I was told I am good to be senior front end developer but my manager asks me to wait a whole year without title change or salary change just because he has been asking to much for me. Is it normal? Or should I just switch? Thank you all

I'm an entry level consultant in Dallas at a smaller company. This is my first job in consulting and I've been here about 7 months. My experience has been good in terms of work life balance, autonomy, and culture. My only real issue is my compensation. I was happy with it at first, but with the workload and expectations I'm feeling undervalued. My base is 82k, 5k signing bonus, no annual bonuses or anything. Im wondering if I should start looking elsewhere or if I'm just getting greedy
