Happened to someone I know. Ukrainian silicon valley engineer (10yr old startup) refused to work with a Russian colleague until the military pulls out--as to not indirectly fund Russia's operations. Shortly after he got called to a meeting with two higher ups. He expected to get fired. That's not what happened. Instead, a colleague in Ukrainian was offered a relocation package to US, and a colleague in Russia was offered an out of pocket transfer. Maybe not this much, but it's safe to speak up.
Feeling stuck: came to nyc on a visa, lived there for a few years, had a blast. Then my agency had layoffs & messed up my visa timing so I came home. it’s been tough since with US gigs due to visas.
I got canned for the holidays and I couldn’t be happier! Thank you boss for the severance and unemployment bennies. Onward!
I was laid off today: advertising is a scourge on humanity - nobody wants to be advertised to. You are sick if you believe othweirse. Fuck you if you disagree.
I got laid off in august and found a freelance gig a couple weeks later. If the freelance gig goes away will I qualify for unemployment? Assuming I don’t qualify right now, right? (I’m in CA)
I’m hoping this doesn’t happen, but I’m interested to see how fishes react if the layoffs start hitting B4. I feel a lot of the comments on here would change once the shoes change feet.
I got laid off today and I’m scared
I spend so much time getting others to do work for me & communicating with partners and clients that I hardly get anything done myself. Gunning for manager, or about to get fired for being useless?
Staff 2, worked at 3 clients in the past busy season. Around 70% of my feedback are “Often”, 20% “Usually” and 10% “Always”. Shall I worry about being fired?
More layoffs at CPB, Alex is picking a few people a week, number is up to apx a dozen, more to come. This is in addtn to LA office closing. I know the new biz team got cut along w digi too. No faith.
Tell stories of people fired for cause?
Layoffs tomorrow at R/GA...
Got laid off today for the first time. Any west coast GSDs or SDs looking for senior strategists to join their team, please comment below.
All my projects are starting to get cancelled. I barely have anything to do this week. I smell Friday layoffs 🤠
How much severance are you guys getting if you worked at your firm for maybe 1-2 years? More specifically during COVID
Does anyone know of any Director/VP level strategy and ops roles (more or less industry agnostic)? Looking to secure next gig ASAP because of imminent layoff from current PE backed company. Please message / DM me. Thank you in advance for any leads! 🙏🏼🙏🏼🙏🏼
Officially landed a new gig today, 3 weeks after falling victim to layoffs for the first time in my career. Better pay, better hours, better location. Sometimes shit is for the best 🤷🏻♂️

But once again not posting
How does this sound?
Maybe we should implement something like automatic posts refresh? I got a notification about "someone like mypost" but it isn't displaying at the post title...

Can we start a doggo/cat/pet picture thread please? We need some positive content amidst the sea of Covid19 chatter.
Lies My Project Manager/Partner Told Me: Go!
MBA hires, do you find it difficult to work with managers and partners who are undergrad hires promoted through? Why?
What household income would you need to be comfortable buying an 800k house? Assuming no other debt. Know there are many other factors besides HHI, just taking the temperature here
Is the 50-50 male-female hiring rule fair? In many offices the applicants are 80-20, thus women are 4 times more likely to make it. Isn’t this the definition of discrimination?
I have no words.
Fishes, need advice. I dipped my toe in the market and now have an offer that is $100k more than my current salary (in industry, as a program manager). Spoke to my lead partner and they’ve been able to increase my pay by $9k (lol). I don’t feel ready to leave consulting as I’ve come from industry. What would u do?
Which city of the 3 would you rather live in, if given an option and why? A. New York B. Los Angeles C. San Diego
Without saying your age, what is something you remember from your childhood that a younger person would not understand?
