I have respected BCW leadership since I was hired last year, but the handling of COVID-19 has been eye-opening.

Makes you think twice about what we stand for at this place. Smh.

Do what’s best for yourself AND the greater good. Stay home and don’t think twice about it. Do you have WiFi? A phone? a laptop? Good...you probably wont even do 20% of what you would normally do anyway. There is absolutely zero reason to be in an office. Spoiler alert - Clients won’t ask. People won’t meet. At a PR agency, this is a no brainer.

EVP1, so true, spot on. Stay home. And get your parents to stay home.

Nothing, nothing, nothing is more important than your health.

Our office remained open at first-notice of a person who came in contact with COVID-19. Instead of them closing the office immediately or the next day, we were instead told that the office had been cleaned, sanitizers would be distributed, etc. In the days to follow we had a disastrous town hall Q&A, which ultimately led to leadership offering a WFH option.

What’s your issue? European here, might just not get what is different or not in the States (I assume)? We are doing our best to be coming out strong through this crisis. We are all in this together.
If you have or see an issue in your leadership’s behavior, let Management know. Or shoot me a note. More than happy to help. And get your voice heard.

Absolutely. That’s really bad to read.
And believe it or not, we still have folks over here - not at our firm though - who behave like that, who still not get it, who are misinformed. This will stop, soon, though.
Stay home. Just stay home.
And really, let me know if I can be of any help.
Also, ping Kristen, or Ben, or Donna.

Are interviews still insanely hard for anyone else, any other candidates? Before COVID, I found getting a corporate/startup/tech job to be an incredibly difficult, grueling experience, and I’m finding the same thing now despite all the job vacancies and people quitting like flies.
