I am a full time AD at an agency expecting pay cuts, I was just offered a part time remote job in house elsewhere. Pay is double my current salary. Can I do both jobs, assuming there is no conflict?

No. You’re gonna get found out. You’re gonna get fired.

Wait? The part time pay is double what you’re currently making full time?

It’s likely a violation of your contract if it involves any ad work. Just read your contract carefully. Large agencies don’t write friendly contracts.

After reading both contracts the part time contract allows any other form or work as long as it is without conflict and my full time contract only mentions issues when work is for “a competitor of the company’s client” but nothing about freelance/vs part time.

Get it in writing that your CD and new employer are aware and on board. Without that legally you won’t be protected because CD could “forget” the conversation. That said, knowing you’re not 100% committed to your company means you’re also likely first on the chopping block later

This! I was on the chopping block come lay offs because my boss knew I was having coffee chats with CDs at other companies. I wasn't even actively looking to jump just learning/networking. Also, I think it is easy for people to assume you're not doing your best work for the company due to the other commitment even if you are prioritizing your full time work and doing great.

I would check your contract with your current employer. CD might say it’s fine, but HR might have other thoughts.

Check the employment agreement you signed upon being hired. You signed one. Promise. You don’t want to give an employer a reason to let you go in this environment (if you breach an agreement you won’t be eligible for unemployment). That said, even if an agreement is in place, your employer might support the side gig if no major conflicts.

Assume there will be conflicts. Take the new job. Your agency will probably be grateful because your salary will save them laying off others. You might even seem like a hero to them. Plus you doubled your money!

My contract with the agency I am at says I cannot do design work for a competing agency, along with all the issues of doing work for a company that could be a competitor to a client I am already working for.

Be mindful of expectations at both places -contractual and otherwise.

My firm was one of the firms that gave covid bonuses but did not specify whether everyone was getting it. I didn’t make my hours this year because I was on maternity leave and a bunch of my cases ended 1-2 months before I went out so I had lower hours before I started my leave. I couldn’t make up for those lost hours when I was back since I was working from home with an infant because of covid. I didn’t get the covid bonus, which in my mind is ironic considering the circumstances. (Cont.)

I was offered a position at Deloitte for ~26k more than I’m making currently, but they told me that in 2.5 years when the contract is over I will be out of a job. Obviously I’ll be able to network within those two years and probably find something more permanent, so it’s very similar to gig work at BAH. I also just started a new project at BAH last month so I feel uneasy leaving after a month. Can someone at Deloitte give me more insight about PDM work at the company?
