Hi folks. I am into my final rounds of discussions with one of the big 4s and will be soon making a move from India irrespective of this one going through or not.

Happy Friday! This bowl is as empty as my soul.
I booked a hotel for vacation a few weeks ago, and I just saw the same room on a booking website about $50/night cheaper. I thought "wow what a great deal!" and cancelled my existing booking and rebooked on the other website.
Well it turns out that the other website was in USD and my original booking was in CAD, and instead of saving $50/night I ended up spending $75/night extra.
Moral of the story is, don't be dumb like me

My company won't give my designer the art director title she deserves because of the association of the word "director". I've explained to them an AD isn't a director level job like a CD is, but they're just so hung up on the word that they're not budging, saying that her having a title with the word "director" would be confusing for some. FML.
But, they've said I could give her any manager level title she wants. What title would you suggest that aligns to AD that I can give her?

I quit my job as an AM at an agency I worked at for 3+ yrs to be an AD. I was overworked, stressed, not getting paid at the level I felt I deserved, but I was comfortable, however I still left. I took the first job offer I received and now regret it. My main concern when I read the JD was that I felt very under qualified but I still got the offer 2 days later (which concerned me how quick it happened). After being here for only a month, I know this job is not the one for me. What should I do?
