I'm a first year analyst and a little fearful of the travel schedule I'll have to adopt in the coming months. From those more seasoned than myself... what are some tips or best practices to deal with the travel?
Don't even care that I am going to be waking up at ungodly hours and that i'll be running a project for my least favorite client... because I'll be in Chicago baby!
First it was paying down student debt (for 2016 associates) and now there’s a benefit for females back from maternity leave. How about a perk for those who make this firm $$ now w/ 15 hr work days?
When you're at the office past 7 and feel like dinner should just be served to you on a mother f'in golden platter
When on your flight home you're stuck with a small child, her mom and a baby in your row. Please fucking kill me. #notenoughalcohol
Why doesn't ACN give bonuses to new hires right away? How do you expect a college kid to move to a new city w/ no funds? 😑
Getting back to the travel is like going for a new job. Can't believe I left my child behind again.
No idea when I'm quitting but I can't wait to send my ready-made "farewell" email draft. Had this baby ready for the last 3 months.
Took a kid from my college out to coffee for recruiting and he ordered a small coffee cuz he didn't know what the cap was. Made him reorder
Any moms out there? Finding it really tough to work in consulting and be with my kid for only a few hours a day. Luckily I'm local, but not sure how long that will last.
Child crying at the gate at 6:45am- bad morning to have forgotten to charge the noise cancelling headphones. #rookiemistake
First week training power point has scatterplot slide and kid raises his hand and tells the whole class that it looks like an "inappropriate splatter"
Child on my flight playing a learning game with no head phones. "Touch the h... Awesome!" Once we're in the air it will be "touch that Q one more time and I'm breaking your game"
When you are staff and your seniors review everything you do, change a tiny bit, and take as if they did it to present to others, feels like a surrogate mother.
Pandora on my drive back home after 13 hours in the office - "All I wanna do is drive home to you, baby I'm faded". Recently broken up. Also, going home to a douche roommate. Oh, the cruelty! 🙁
Looking for advice. Applied R1 to HBS, Wharton, and Kellogg. After my Kellogg interview, I had a Google recruiter reach out about a role and received an offer. Accepted the offer, started in November, and now I’ve been accepted to Kellogg ($120K fellowship) and HBS (no scholarship). Should I still go to school, try to defer, not go? Google salary is in line with what I would make post-MBA.
I see a lot of Wordle posts and it's supposed much fun! But what's your first/random guess??
Hi all, lofty question but here goes! I’ve been thinking about the prospect of switching industries - from creative agency to something else, ideally w/ better compensation but for some reason have felt stuck re: knowing my options & where my skills would translate. I know the typical account skillset should translate to many jobs out there and maybe the vastness is what’s making me freeze? Has anyone transitioned to a different industry/company or does anyone have good starting suggestions?
Office most likely won't reopen in 2020.
Do you use a financial planner?
Hi fishes... I am a marketing manager with 10 years of experience, including agency experience in both traditional and digital channels. Currently in AIPL and looking for new opportunities in NCR region. Any lead would be appreciated.
GSD&M - what is the vibe with the news?
I know the base salary is the same between strategy and technology at the BA/BTA level but how significant are the differences in bonus as you progress through the firm?
Have you ever seen a “left this industry to open a small business” success story? Not a consultancy business... like a store, restaurant? Is it a cliche and unrealistic pipe dream?
I’m looking to switch career from data analyst to interior designer. But from what I saw the interior designer has a relatively lower pay compared with data jobs. What should I do? Interior design work makes me happy but it earns less. How do you guys see about salary cut after transitioning careers, especially I need to re-attend school ( not making money for 2+ years and pay for tuition) if I want to switch the career. Thanks!
Why is this bowl not called “singles..” or “dating...” smth? I literally didn’t know this bowl existed until someone just pointed it out to me🤔
Guys, Need your advise regarding a career switch. YOE - 11.5 I'm a mobile application developer, have worked on native Android and other low code platforms. I've done almost everything related to mobile application development and I'm finding the work repetitive. Even leading and architecting solutions doesn't feel great and kind of boring now. I like to work on Linux and have taken a liking to DevOps and am good at automating many tasks at my current projects. Question continued in comment...
Anyone else find that the last 1.5 years have made it impossible to focus? In recent months, I’ve developed the ability to procrastinate on big tasks to the point that my body physically hurts from the stress. I’m ready to seek mental health help, but before I do, wanted to see if anyone out there feels the same way and has tips on how to beat it.
Any insight on an independent agency in NYC with a strong analytics capability? Iv worked at every one of the big 4 holding companies and they all suck. ESPECIALLY Publicis!
