Coronavirus Work-life

I’ve already heard lay-off rumors/realities from both Omnicom and Publicis. Who else??

Just speculating. I’d imagine sapient will be fine. But Arthur has destroyed his creative agencies and they’re not performing well, so I could see some carnage happening there

So sad at a time when people can't seek new jobs. Heard rumors that layoffs were set before Corona, also heard individual meetings are being set next week. Will help others with their websites and their next moves by reaching out to co-workers let go. If you can help, reach out to them.

I’ve actually been surprised, Anomaly is the only agency in NYC that’s had big layoffs so far, and that was non-virus related. I’m sure they’re coming as more clients hit pause on their payments, but I’m imagining it will be the worst at the agencies that were already struggling. Most of Publicis Groupe has been a dumpster fire lately so I worry about everyone at Saatchi and Leo Burnett.

I’m sure the agencies both big and small will shed some ppl. I come from one of the big network agencies and they’re so much more operationally unsophisticated (ie lots of fat and slack) than consulting firms

A1 doing the best I can on one engagement (leveraging learnings to date and PY file), asking questions, and getting the senior to review key tasks. Many times now important methodology errors were found by the manager which required rework. Is this normal? First time working with this manager so would this make them get a negative impression of me or my work?
