5 days ago there was a post calling it a “bloodbath”. Is this that? Or is this yet another round?

Unofficial count is 12 people, some creative, some account, some strategy, some production

Really haven’t heard about any more this week. Just the 12-person "bloodbath” @bbdo

I remember when greyNY moved to 200 5th there were about 500+ employees in NYC. It was beautiful. You had room around you. Then without adding any more space, the agency ballooned to over 1200. Massive overcrowding. Where is the count now? Maybe they open up the space and pull out the empty seats.

Supposedly more this week too...

Well then, whoever wrote the ‘bloodbath’ post clearly has never been in one.

@sr vp there are way more empty desks than full ones and it’s a pretty big office. I think it was more than 12.

The more pedestrian your intellect, the better fit you are at D Heard of a colleague with an FRM charter being laid off today. Overall excellent person. And you won't believe who they promote year after year.. the character, curiosity and quality of the lifers Don't join this firm if you for a love of learning and to be inspired. Join if you are a middling who wants a good brand to hack ahead in life and rise above your station

I'm a first year atty. I make $45K at a small firm of 5. In the last three weeks, my assistant has been fired (caught with pot on break), another paralegal quit, and now another assistant has resigned. I have a caseload of 80, with no help. Boss says they are looking, they made an offer, but if that person accepts, it will be weeks before they are ready. I'm falling apart and crying at my desk and can't sleep. Told owner. "Hang in there." Do I walk now? Or hang in there?

What are the best reasons to go full-time after freelancing? I started freelancing a month ago after I was laid off thinking it would just be temporary but I’m really enjoying it so far. My stress levels are lower and the money is better. I have a few full time opportunities in the mix and I’m trying to gauge if I should go back to full-time or stick with freelance. For those who have taken a full time gig after a successful freelance run, what did you base your decision on?

Sick of biglaw but I want to stay one more annual bonus season. I’m seriously burned out and would like to shift gears but I’d like to leave after ending my 5th year.

I aim to maximize vacay time, and just in general try to avoid any work I don’t absolutely have to do.
