Seriously, I would give new analysts one chance. Take them to the woodshed, point out that they're not in college anymore, give them a shitty snapshot, but don't fire them.

Sounds like D leadership is literally looking for a reason to fire their people. "Review the tape and had firing power". Holy big brother.

I doubt they'd get fired. Drinking was encouraged the last time I was at DU lol

Folks, any advice on applying for jobs at a previous client? As a firm we have great relationships with the senior client leadership and I am afraid that the GEP and my RL will eventually find out when I submit my job application. On the other hand, if I tell my RL prior to applying, I will probably end up towards the top of “people to be laid off” list.
