I’ve seen a dozen CDs try to engineer a turnaround at an agency, all of them failed and got fired. Has anyone been through a successful turnaround with a new CD? Were there any observable changes?

Yeah, our CCO fired our CD and two ACD’s, then replaced all of them with stronger talent.

Have I just had bad luck with the companies I've been at or is it like this everywhere? I've had 7 managers in my 4 years of experience, 3 in one year at my first position (which is why I left) and now 4 at the 2nd company in 3 years. There has been a mix of people leaving and people getting fired but the instability feels extreme.

Hi everyone, unfortunately I was recently affected by a layoff at my company. About 30% of their marketing department along with other departments were all let go.

If you know of anyone looking for marketing specialists or just want to network in general let me know. I would love to connect!

Hey everyone! Today I got laid off from my job - my entire IA department did. In total I think the company laid off about 8-10% of the workforce. Positives are that we’re getting a decent severance package but I’m beyond upset because I left consulting as a manager (very unhappy) and found this company and LOVED it for its mission and my position. Any advice on how I address being laid off in my future interviews? I’ve never been in this position before. Currently just feeling sad💔

Hey guys. Was laid off as a generalist consultant last month. My eventual goal is to get into data analytics and data science.

I’d love to chat and learn about what you guys do and a bit of mentoring (if you’re up for it). Thanks in advance!

Anyone know how to negotiate a protective clause in case of a rescinded offer / Year One layoff? Is that a thing. I have been interviewing for a good while now to a number of companies and would be beyond distraught after my massive unemployment gap to end up accepting a dud of an offer, and turning down legitimate ones.
