I’m at an agency that just went through several rounds of layoffs. It often seems like staff have no recourse when the layoffs hit. How could a staff union assist in that situation?
Hi Everyone, I’m a UI/UX designer recently laid off from an agency in Detroit. I have 10+ years experience with a background in front-end development. If anyone here is looking for candidates, PM me.
Have you ever negotiated a severance? Company ended my employment and wants me to sign a mutual non-disparagement, waive suing them, etc. but they didn't offer me any money. They are fully in the wrong, it's a disability related issue. My options are 1. Sign 2. Refuse to sign 3. Try to negotiate. 4. Sue them (contingent on attorney taking the case). I'd prefer to negotiate, but not sure that's realistic.
For a Company the size of 500 employees, what are your recommended corporate communication policies for announcing furloughs or layoffs?
Has anyone been offered severance verbally only to have it revoked after you accepted? If so, how did you handle it?
Did BCW NY just layoff it’s EA staff?! Seeing a bunch of these names on Connect and very upset that great people were let go!
OK gonna maybe open a can of worms here but I have to ask: it seems the sudden inflation we're seeing has taken the ins. ind. by surprise. The cost/expense projections done X yrs. ago for this and poss'y subsequent yrs. have been thrown off. Costs to repair/replace cars have shot up unexpectedly. Same for houses. Med costs have all gone up. Ins. cos. have relatively thin profit margins to begin with. There's talk of cost-cutting measures-- incl. layoffs. How realistic are these concerns?
Worked as an admin assist for 5 years... was fired for ASKING FOR A RAISE. Was making $22/hr. Located in NYC. Past 2 months i have going on interview after interview only to be ghosted. I've applied for some executive admin spots as well. Any advice on getting an exec assist job?
Lay-offs at JWT Atlanta. Anyone know of any production/pm openings in Atlanta? Just got laid off by JWT Atlanta on Thursday, effective Friday...
Hey all, ~7 years I've been working with fixed income analytics (duration, spread, etc) and perf attribution for institutional inv mgmt firm with close to $400B aum. I'm being laid off in a couple months. Should I say I'm being laid off in interviews? Or is that a negative? I get severance if I stay the whole time so ideally I can time it. Have finance degree, CFA charter. Most of work has been IG, but also some HY, EM and equity. Want to go into equity research/PM- worried I'm pigeonholed
Do you have any tips/advise for someone who was laid off recently and early in their career?
How many times have you been laid off? Each time things went from abysmal to amazing. It happens way more than you think, so just a boost for anyone who’s struggling. I now work for one of the most awarded company’s in Advertising, globally (and proud to have led a bunch of the work) I’m at 5 by the way.
This has been my experience but do y’all think recession/layoff don’t usually affect accounting professionals much as compared to other fileds? I mean we all should have at least one positive thing to be accountant haha.
recently promoted to senior analyst into a new group (internal transfer). Been in the role for 2 months, and everytime I make a mistake I always get anxious that I'm going to be fired. Most of my (few to begin with) mistakes are minor, and its a pretty different role from what i was doing before tbh... anyone have any advice for this anxiety? in general how bad do u have to be to get fired, and how many chances do you get lol. is it possible one mistake sends u home if its big enough?
Hey everyone! Curious, does anyone have experience negotiating severance upfront with their compensation package? 👀 I work in media & entertainment, so with all these m&a going on, I'd rather have this conversation while it's still the honeymoon phase. Thanks!
Should I continue in startup TA/Recruiting or go back to agency and build out my own business? What has more future stability given the recent news in tech layoffs?
I don’t know what it is, but I cannot build energy to do any more work. Originally I was burnt out, took some PTO and traveled for a week. Came back, no change in my feelings.
Hi can you please help with Senior consultant base salary range at EY London? role is for Banking and FS consultant.
As someone who’s hasn’t dated much, I struggle bringing physicality and emotional connection / love together in a relationship. For instance, if I form an emotional connection with someone, I no longer feel like having sex with them. May be I feel sex will disrupt the relationship, not sure why. But has someone else gone something similar? And how do I work on this?
Had been seeing this girl I met off of hinge for about a month. Finally brought her back to my place and we start making out. I opened my eyes for a second to find her making out with me eyes wide open. I called her out on it and she continued to do it. I’m creeped out
I was interviewed for 2 technical rounds by SAP lab for almost 3 hours. I didn't get to hear anything after that and the application status is still In process. I have followed up couple of times and notified about my notice period also, yet nothing. Should I consider it rejected or i still have some hope.

Just tried giving myself a haircut for the first time myself with a number two razor guard. The razor guard fell off while I was cutting….. and I now have a 1x2 in bald spot on the back of my head. Ohhhh my god. I was not planning to shave my head today but…..
It’s hard to work with a micromanager and it’s hard to work with a hack. But there’s nothing in the world that’s worse than working with a micromanaging hack.
Only couple months in my new job, I already don’t see myself there long term.. bad to leave after only 1 year at a company?
My manager for one of my engagements micromanages everything I do and immediately reach out every time I do something. This is getting out of hand and making me unproductive. Any suggestions on how to best resolve this?
