Has anyone else’s company ever reached out and asked them to leave a Glassdoor review? My company does this randomly, seems like a trap bc they know who they asked and when so you have to be positive

After getting laid off due to Covid I got a nice job in industry, jumped a few titles and got a nice raise in salary. I like the new job because it’s less demanding than consulting, but also don’t like it because often times I’m bored - anyone else experience this? I also think I’ll be able to create my own projects in the next couple months too so I’ll be able to fix the bored issue

Which book do you think had more foresight into modern US society: Blair’s “1984” or “Huxley’s Brave New World?” Feel free to write in another dystopia if you think it’s more accurate!

Do you charge your time to BD or Project code for on boarding activities (e.g. calls, reviewing materials) ? Prior to getting to the client site.

When is it time to go client side from agency? I’m not looking for a new role but a contact has a contract to full time placement that is for a stable company and sounds like a significant pay raise. My current agency has good benefits, I liked the work pre-covid. Now raises and promotions are paused, and they’re very hesitant to hire with no end in sight. I’m not sure it’s worth it to hang around.

Agree or disagree. The majority of people, while flawed, are decent people just trying to do the best they can for themselves and their families.

How do you manage stress? Sometimes I get done with work for the day but the stress does not and I can feel it. What do you do to unwind/relax?

Is it better to prioritize reaching out to creatives or recruiters about getting hired somewhere? I feel like recruiters are so inundated with requests and creatives can be so ornery (myself included) that it’s a case by case thing. Any info would help. Thanks
