I had to design a birthday card for a client to surprise his son (I got briefed on it as a job) other day I had to make an excel sheet look better for other client. An account manager had to search himself and book personal flights for a client. A sr. copywriter had to revise a presentation the client wrote for his personal meeting. I’m talking about senior professionals, awards, used to big productions, in different big name agencies. Is it unusual or also happened to you?
Best job to get to transition into HR? Does anyone know where to start in HR please? My goal role in 5 years let’s say is Chief People Officer / People & Culture Director, etc. My background is 12+ years in customer/client experience, coaching, sales, and account management. I’m finishing a Lv7 executive coaching course and starting a CIPD Lv5 people management course. Any ideas on what roles I can start with? Don’t care if it’s a simple role, getting in with a good company is important.
Feeling really stressed by client on my project. I dont know if I can survive without it impacting my health. Is it possible to get a mental health evaluation to assess? Never had issue letting stuff roll off my back but this one is causing sleep loss, stomach issues, and I feel like I want to cry all the time. I do a good job on deliverables, on time and quality work. Seems no matter what, he is nasty. Others say not to take it personal, its just him. But I cant deal. How do I fix this?

Partner is in the habit of scheduling calls I need to attend without seeing if I am available or checking my schedule. For example, I had a personal appointment scheduled and on my calendar but now I have a client facing call at the same time. How can I fix this?
Started a new remote project. So far: headset broke, audio drivers died, ISP went offline, and now network is blocking client's meeting app. It's day 2. I think my SM will want to have my head.

Do firms discriminate based on school? I’m from a top 20-ish school and my colleague is probably from 100-150ish school. Same project, both college hires, I get 2x his workload but also get more pay than him. Is this common? I’m just surprised because he’s just as qualified as I am.

Amazing leaders, I have been facing some resistance from our offshore offices and need some guidance. Context, I am an Indian and been working in US and Basel for many years now. My offshore office in India is all men (similar to my US and Singapore office), however the moment they realize I am Indian, their attitude towards me changes drastically. For example, the team leader in India office (also 10 years older to me) in a global conference call said that the project needs more experience cont

How are you all telling your project leads that you are leaving if you aren’t close? Do you just send an email or ask for a Zoom call? Do you tell them before or after HR?

Been offered a job in-house. For a tech brand. Could go from a MW salary to an ACD salary overnight. Marketers are all ex-agency, have big ambitions for the work. They have brand partners so briefs wouldn’t all be for 1 brand. Is it worth it this early on in my career? I’d also get stock options on top of huge salary increase.
How do you obtain info on how much clients pay people in similar role? I'm negotiating my salary later this month and want data. (Recruiters? Ask clients you are friends with?)
After months of job searching, I finally got an offer!! I can’t even be excited bc I am dreading giving my current boss my notice. I’ve seen what he does with others, and it’s ugly. It’s cruel. It’s abusive behavior. Any tips or words of encouragement?!
What works in negotiating sign on bonuses with KPMG for M1 and how is this negotiated? Is the sign on bonus just included in the initial offer as a standard and then you negotiate up from there or is it something that you’ve asked for prior to the interview/offer? What do they use to determine your sign on amount? Are they under the impression you are interviewing with multiple competitors or do you throw out a base and sign on bonus amount during preliminary discussions?

I am an interdisciplinary studies major concentrating on organizational leadership and sociology. I have 17 years of management experience already and I'm not young. I will need an internship this summer, but I tend not to get calls on my applications. I'm nervous because I will need the internship to graduate, and it needs to fulfill expectations of both OGL AND SOC. Human resources, DEI, talent development or acquisition, ethics, all would be great (I think). Best places to look? Thank you!
I recently had a miscarriage but I didn't know I was pregnant should I tell my boyfriend I don't want him to think I'm broken so I don't know. We've been together for 3 years and he is an awesome guy but I haven't been able to have sex with him lately because I'm not ready and the doctor said to take some time... he thinks that I'm rejecting him but I don't know if I should tell him what I'm going through. Its been three weeks. And I was five weeks.
So my husband recently became a share partner at a firm, which is a bit stressful for us because (i) it’s a big transition and a lot of stress for him and (ii) they are pressuring him to move to NYC (we are based in TX where most of my family live). Anyways, we are planning to have kids, and I’m worried that if we move and have a child that I will alone, also working in biglaw and raising the child alone without help. Anyways, I was wondering other women’s thoughts, experiences and advice.
