My coworker, a senior copywriter, was just laid off. They've got tons of experience. I've seen them churn out 5 individual scripts in an hour. Any leads I can throw their way?
If you got fired, would you care?
PPD on my project acknowledging the PDM people on this TSA project are staff augmentation ppl who will be laid off when project is over. Said having them allows us to (contd)
Any creatives impacted by Forsman Bodenfors layoffs? That agency does beautiful, powerful work.
Don't want to do any work. Don't want to quit. Don't want to get fired. How do I square this circle? 🤔🤔🤔
If a firm (for e.g. PwC with MF Global) loses a pending law suit, are layoffs inevitable?
Claim unemployment or try to find your hardest to find a job in the next month and omit the layoff? I want to rush but not settle. Definitely don't want to go back into consulting.
If anyone deserves to have layoffs, it’s those folks in TSA - Bunch of lazy people standing around and whiling their time chatting.
Once laid off by a specific employer, do people ever go back to work for that same employer? For example, all the people laid off from Deloitte, will they ever work for Deloitte again in the future? Assuming there were performance issues.
Hey guys I also got laid off at D. 1 year experience as a BTA>S&A>CCG. Would anybody mind helping a mate out with any referrals? Would love to discuss over DM. Appreciate your help, thank you so much!
My firm sent an email yesterday saying their tracking billable hours DAILY. It’s either they don’t think we’re working from home or about to have some layoffs 🤷🏼♀️
Thinking about advertising publicly on LinkedIn that I’m looking for a new job. What are the chances I would be fired?
Has anyone come back from being put on a PiP? My colleague just got one and is freaking out - her manager is overallocated like crazy, the other two media planners were laid off, and she’s the only one left standing. Her boss says she’s making too many mistakes - but they’re so short staffed. Any hope, or should she start looking now?
After getting laid off 2 weeks ago, I fired off about 20 resumes to different places. I have not received any feedback at all. Any ideas how to get past the computer and in front of someone?
I was fired from my job about two months ago (imo it came down to the lack of work) and have had a hard time opening up to my friends and family about it. Anyone experience a similar situation or have any advice?
Thoughts on Prosci or SHRM-SCP certification? Which would be considered more valuable or highly regarded? Currently focused on Change Management but have a HR background (industry experience / area of study in college).
When your S.O. has a bad day and stress bakes some cookies, you eat 2 of them and say they're great even though they're way overcooked and stiff. Everyone enjoy the holiday weekend!
Plan on moving to Dallas Texas next year. Currently with Deloitte MTS team and will be a senior at that time. Im wondering how the culture of the office is there? Also, how is the culture of the other firms. Im not opposed to moving firms. Just finished working three 80 hour weeks, so that would be a big plus to find a team where that is not expected on a regular basis!
I have an offer to join Commercial Assurance but I’m not sure what career path that could lead me to if I was to leave Big 4 - thoughts?
Just a shout-out to all the LGBTQ+ consultants who are not in heteronormative relationships. Every time I read threads here wherein folks assume that someone posting about a wife or girlfriend is a man, or someone with a husband is a woman, I feel invisible. This also happens to me at work - colleagues and clients incorrectly assume the gender of my spouse. Please remember that there are men married to men, women married to women, and same-gender couples with kids. We exist!
Hey Producer friends - what am I missing out on? What are some digital tools that help you a lot? Production specific? Scheduling/project management tools? General organization or planning tools? Thanks!!
Wanted to get thoughts on if there was a service line in the Big 4 world that has a work/life balance that doesn't exceed 45 hours of work per week? Or is that blasphemy?
Any new hire who was able to negotiate their base salary at Salesforce - how much (%) were you able to add on? How did you do it?
I’m turning 30 in a month. My boyfriend and I have talked about getting engaged but I’m not sure when he’ll propose (probably after the pandemic is over when we can go on trips safely). I’m realizing that if he waits until after the pandemic, it’s going to be at least a year until the actual wedding. Then I had always planned on being married for a few years before getting pregnant. I’m having major fertility anxiety. Any advice?
Over the last year I’ve had 4 separate interview cycles where after the final round I’ve gotten “you had all strong feedback but the team went with the other candidate.” It’s really insulting to hear these companies say that there isn’t enough qualified black candidates but have your own experience show you that you can do everything right but still you don’t get the offer due to not looking the part I guess
Thinking of exiting to Salesforce, competitive programs role. Any insight here on pay (including shares), wlb, type of work, career progression, culture? UK based but appreciate any insight. Thanks
Current CISA. Is it worth getting CFE?
How do you spread your vacation days out over the course of the year? (Not interested in the gunners or lackies who don’t take any)
Does anyone have insight into Strategy & Ops Manager roles for Peloton or MIRROR? Would love to hear about comp, WLB, type of work, interview process, etc. Thanks in advance!
I realized I only enjoy chasing higher comp. Job switches every 2 years, always looking out for the next bump… it has taken a toll on my mental health. Tried to get hobbies to distract but I find myself back at websites checking comp numbers. Any suggestions to get out of the race?
Copying a similar post... can anyone speak to what the culture and busy season are like in London for FS? I’m considering a rotation and wondering if it’s worth it.
