I’m returning to work from maternity leave can someone tell me if I can reach out to HR to discuss pay review/increase upon my return. I know for a fact through colleagues I’m the lowest being paid at this company. New comers make same amount or even more. How do I initiate this convo ?

Do any RA’s or PE’s on here sign and seal for their company? My firm is trying to bestow these responsibilities on us and I’m holding out for an increase in comp. This responsibility was not originally in my job description. Additionally I am the only one with my job title being required to do this. Everyone else that will be signing have a more senior role then me. Any feedback is appreciated.
Sigh. Apparently tomorrow they are going to announce shelter in place starting on Friday. Get those last minute reservations in this week. Source: friend’s gf is friends with the mayor, so I’m presuming it’s legit 😞

This is twice now in back to back weeks my boss has asked me where the disconnect was in our communications because I didn’t deliver on what “was asked”, even though I know damn well what was asked and what was done were the same thing. I’m not sure if he’s changing the meaning or isn’t communicating what he’s envisioning or what but it’s embarrassing to be called out like that, and to have people think you’re the dumb 23 year old.
In my new company my HR and boss told me to resign . As per them I am slow at work and done two mistakes . As per me if I was guided properly about the business the mistakes wouldn't hv happened. Should I say about the head to HR and try to convince to be in the same company or leave and find new.

How did you get your start in advertising?
I’ll go first - I was originally going into film.. started shooting tv spots for regional high-end car dealers.. realized I didn’t love production I loved pitching.. been closing deals in the ad game ever since..
So....has anyone started at a start-up in your first management role? They have $100M+ in series a funding and they sound legit, but I’m nervous.
I’d essentially have someone running the group WITH me as we grow, but he doesn’t have that much more experience than I do.
My boss has actually told me if I found what sounded like a good opportunity...and then I found out it was desirable than I originally thought, could come back, but that would be more than awkward. Thoughts?

Hey media fishies, what media mix software do you use? We use IMS but havent done an audit in a while of what else is out there.
Hi everyone, I am getting ready for a job interview, and need to create a media plan. I was hoping someone can help me with the next task: basically, I need to create inventory recommendation based on past performance. What I am very confused about is that they gave me Booked Impressions (=4M), but in the task it says I should assume there is unlimited inventory. Am I supposed to use this 4M only to calculate spend, ROAS, etc., but can actually have unlimited allocated impressions? Thank you!
