Hi wonderful people!

Anyone know the boomerang salary policy at Publicis? I want to return to my old position and have been told I can but only at the salary I had when I left 6 months ago which is 20% less than what I make now for the same title. Is there a length of time you need to be away for the policy to be void? I want to return but can’t take that cut and want to be paid the industry standard
Is the exit to switch to FP&A and Corporate Finance roles easy or difficult after switching from Public Accounting to FDD ? I am currently at the Senior Associate role in Public Accounting Big 4. If ultimately I want to get into FP&A/ Corporate Finance roles, would you’ll suggest to stay in Public Accounting or switch to FDD for better experience before getting into FP&A and Corporate Finance roles ?

A Juneteenth Miracle:
The day before, my so-called leader tried to mansplain design to me after I went out of my way to get something done in 2.5 hours that typically takes 1-2 days. Needless to say, your girl was HOT.
Reinforced my boundaries and logged off! Took the day to reflect & celebrated all weekend. After many YEARS of searching, I was offered a creative manager position on Sat. w/ a 20% pay raise 😱
Gave my 2- (really one 🤭) week notice this Monday after a VERY Black OOO message 👸🏽
I recently joined a niche function in an industry role, and think it could translate to consulting well. What are the things you (partners or equivalent) would want to know before pushing to build a new (sub-)practice area?

Anyone working at Airbnb able to get me in touch with an HR recruiter? I've reached out to a few on LinkedIn with no response as of yet. Just need a quarterback for my application :) I'm literally perfect for this certain position they have posted. Help please!Airbnb
Wow so I’m a first time people manager in industry (big company) and I’m in the process of getting one of my direct reports promoted. I am shocked that HR’s formal stance is that I have to jump through hoops to rescope the role to justify the promo instead of singing the praises of the direct report who is a rockstar. Theoretically I get the logic of “emphasize the role and not the direct report” but can’t help but feel disappointed that’s the way it is. Are all big companies like this?

Worked 3 years in consulting, now joining a tech company in the BizOps function. The role will involve a blend of excel, SQL, and python work. I have the option of Mac or Windows laptop and feel conflicted. Last 3 years I’ve become very familiar with Windows but in general I think Macs are better from a performance / UI perspective. I feel like the only thing I’ll really miss is the excel shortcuts but maybe I’m underselling it. Anyone made a similar decision?
I recently moved from a Talent Acquisition role to Talent Management and Development. I am early in my career (26) I have my MBA and SHRM-CP but am wondering what else I can do to become more knowledgeable in this new space and HR in general. I have almost 3 years experience in HR now. Any recommendations?
