I felt very good following Dana’s Town Hall. Having heard other networks are already facing furloughs and layoffs, did you feel as encouraged?

I missed it. What was the gist?

She let us know that many of our clients have been very pleased with our efforts/execution despite these challenges, we have open positions we are still looking to fill and new business wins/waiting/pipeline so at this point they are not considering layoffs/furloughs/salary reduction or any of that. I think she was as honest and fair as she could be given the environment.


When was Dana’s Town Hall? I just got hired by FCB Health

Welcome! This was quite some time ago. She’s been regularly connecting with us about every month or so.

Why is it recommended you give a company 2 weeks notice when you are leaving but at the same time, when they are laying you off/firing you, they typically do it on the spot. I have known countless people layed off/fired on the spot over the years (especially after busy season) and everyone else when they leave give 2 week notice. Why should we relinquish power to corporations? Corporations really don't care about us. They pretend they do.

Hi All! I need some help. I got recently laid off and I am going to start interviewing for roles soon. Should I tell recruiter that I’m not in the company anymore? If so, what should I say? (I got fired due to my performance, but my manager set me up for failure from the beginning, aka toxic leader).
Also, should I update my LinkedIn so that recruiters know I’m open for work?

Joined a new company in industry after being laid off from my last job after being there for only 5 months. My new gig is rough, no support network, my boss is not a very nice guy and I dread this new job every day (2 months in). Things aren’t going to be getting better and I’ve almost thrown my mouse at my wall out of frustration with the job/boss.

Hi fishes,
Has coforge fired any employees in 2022?

I am a new associate (1 month in mid-tier firm) and I struggle to get work to fill up the whole day. In honest time, i get about 3-5 billable hours a day.

Have others found it hard to transition from Audit to Financial Analyst? All the recruiters I’m meeting with are telling me I probably won’t get an interview since they’re looking for someone who’s ready to hit the ground running.

Additional Posts in FCB Health - NYC

Thought we could use our own bowl...many of the FCB bowl posts refer to Chicago so thought we might like our own to chat all things FCBHealth, pharma, 7/6/5 floors, etc.


I have applied for a Junior Strategic Planner role in NYC. I was now asked what my salary expectations are...what range is appropriate here? I have 2 years of experience and a Masters in Marketing.

Heard there’s some funny business going on in the creative dept... can anyone confirm?


Aloha instead of Halloween? We rarely get this many opportunities for free alcohol + snacks, so wondering if Dana is bait and switching us...

What’s the difference between FCB Health and, say, Area 23? Does 23 get ALL the awards and fame?

Serious question: Why’d we have to migrate our network logins to FCB Health in addition to our emails? Couldn’t we have just started listing our emails as “@fcbhealth” but logging in as “@FCB”?
Our old emails instantly forward to our current ones, so I don’t see why it couldn’t be the other way.


Can anyone give me honest feedback on what being a copywriter is like at FCB Health NY? I have an interview but looking on here all I see is *really* negative feedback, so I’m very apprehensive. Glassdoor has a lot of bad reviews too. I’m currently at a smaller agency and I like it, but getting the itch to move up in salary & have more opportunities to produce good work. Tempted by FCB for those reasons, but value work/life balance.

Does Partners & Pizza come with actual pizza (like a voucher or something) or is it just a name from pre-WFH?

As of late, my work related anxiety has reached new levels and it’s really starting to affect me mentally. I’m part of a great team; I’m trusted and supported, have a great track record, there are no issues, and have been no incidents. Regardless, my professional self perception and confidence is so rattled as of late, it’s almost like a paralysis at times. I realize there are much larger problems right now, but if anyone has any tips or advice to get over this, I am all ears. Thanks all!

There are leaders, and then there is Dana.
