Just curious what is (if any) the severance pay in case you get laid off from your firm due to a market slowdown.

I think it depends. I’ve heard of people getting 3 months, and other people getting 1 month.

2 weeks per year here

6months at my level (Sr Manager), irrespective of tenure

McLean, Richmond or Plano only. Maybe bit in NY.

I fired my largest client today. 🙀 Sometimes it just isn't a good fit. It has to be a fit for not only my client but also for my agency. We're selective about the work we take on because relationships do matter, and strong relationships = better results. Today was liberating. What a breath of fresh air. We are accepting new clients for everything marketing related including graphic design, website design and development, SEO, digital campaigns, product photography, and video production.

Spinning off an earlier post, is it better to quit or get laid off? I would think quitting and using the time to "re-center" (i.e. Travel for a few months) then job hunt would look better than lay off
