Hi Guys, What are your thoughts on accepting a role at Isobar in this climate? I read Dentsu had furloughs, pay cuts and some lay offs. HR assures me the role is sound, but I’m weary.

I’d be weary... Dentsu also claims that they’re doing a hiring freeze for the rest of 2020 but I guess that’s not true 🤷🏼‍♀️

I have no idea how isobar is doing itself but all of dentsu’s companies had to do furloughs and paycuts, no one was left untouched. They had financial issues before COVID and the drastic recent events are to ride the storm. They say we are safe until the end of the year but who knows...

Can you put a covid clause in the contract? Something about if you get let go before a certain date, you get a beefed up severance?

Why do so many people in FDD hype up FP&A exit opportunities? It seems like: 1) most of those opportunities would’ve been available for high performers coming out of audit; 2) financial reporting managers (and higher) make the same, if not more, than people in FP&A; 3) FP&A is not “FIH-nance” - it’s glorified accounting that is somewhat forward-looking but ultimately isn’t that much more interesting than debits and credits. Thank you for coming to my TED talk.
