The agency is run by two high profile women so it’s probably a good assumption they made the decisions.

POC=Last ones in and first ones out the door. Nothing surprising there.

Stop crying wolf every time a woman or POC gets laid off

Not actually true that they pick the names. Even though it would make sense.

Did leadership or anyone take pay cuts? Heard Publicis was encouraging that

Just wait. It’s coming. Soon.

Since this was posted in the “advertising “ bowl and not the BBH bowl, it’s open to everyone to respond. Stop telling people how to react/respond/think, jeez! Signed, person who actually worked at BBH (loved it) a number of years ago with some of the most amazing women I’ve met in advertising. I simply can’t imagine having the audacity to tell people to eff off with their opinions if they differ from mine.

Seconding OP

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?

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.

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?

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.
