Ladies, could you please share stories of someone not believing in you at work? And then working through this.
How does Simon Kucher compare to the other top-tier LS shops (LEK, ZS, CV, Putnam) - in terms of industry recognition and project type?
I know SKP has a strong presence in LS as well but have rarely seen them in bids for franchise / brand level strategy work. Curious as to what kind of LS projects they typically do? Simon-Kucher & Partners
LCA Q: If I live in San jose but I am aligned to SF office. At the same time i am on a client in a different state X. I am sure I need to file LCA for SF and X. However, do I need LCA for San jose??
Freelance Copywriters: Do you charge by the word, hr, project or do you use a day rate? I stay away from per word projects. I typically charge clients by project, but agencies usually ask me for an hourly rate. Lately, I have been wondering if I should use a day rate for projects though. For example, my last client needed a quick turnaround time for multiple campaign deliverables. They had me booked solid and busy for 2 weeks. Do you use a day rate? How is it structured? When do you use it?

Our client got a judgment in federal court in Colorado. The defendant lives in New York. Can someone walk me through the process of enforcing? Do I get a writ of execution in Colorado and serve it on the defendant in New York? Do I need to do anything with the NY courts? I am researching and I guess I don't really know what I'm looking for. Baby lawyer, please send help. 🤣
Has anyone signed an offer letter and later rejected because you got a better offer elsewhere?
I received an offer from B4 and have to provide my response by tomorrow. I’m still waiting to see if I will receive an offer from a smaller firm, because that’s where I actually want to work after learning about the project and meeting the team. Also the salary we spoke about is about $20k more than what B4 offered.
Do bonuses exist for working more than usual - especially when it’s due to lots of incremental client work?
I’ve been working 15-20 more hours/week for the last few months than usual.

Hi All, we just started a new Online Social Marketing and Web Development company. We have some meetings lined up already, and bought on our first client but we are looking for more business.
Any ideas where would be a good starting point for more business?
Curious for those of you who work in BD/Growth/etc or know anyone who does...is it possible to negotiate a certain % of pitch winnings into your compensation package? And if so what a traditional or competitive rate is?
Feel like when I was starting out in BD someone told me their former supervisor of the department made 1-3% of what was billed to the client in the first year after a pitch win but unsure how common or uncommon this actually is.

Not completely sure what I want to do long term. I like TAS right now. Might be interested in CorpDev. Currently at a MM firm. Will moving to a smaller firm (<500 employees) make life more difficult in the future if I want to stick with TAS or move to CorpDev? I don’t need to work at a F500, but I’d like to make 130k+ in 3-4 years. Currently 1.5 YOE

Okay, it’s time to stop putting on a face about this. I love my boyfriend so much, but covid is ruining us. We are both still WFH and argue every few days about the dumbest stuff. My and his mental health are both diminishing and it feels like an impossible trench to dig out of. My stomach hurts every time we fight and I (independent of him) feel so stuck in this horrible global crisis. I don’t want to lose him, but I need to figure out how to dig us both out of this unsustainable mental state.

Does a PhD in computer science make it any easier to get jobs at big tech companies versus only having a Masters? I know that I want to eventually work at a company like Google or Salesforce and I feel I have a long road to get there coming out a Masters program with not much work experience. I hear people say that a PhD is generally only for those interested in academia/research but then I see job postings at companies like VMware that want people with a PhD. So it makes me wonder?
Considering jumping ship laterally from an HR Consultant role to an internal HR Consultant / HRBP role. However, mgr has confirmed that I am up for promotion at the end of the year. Total comp increase from switching would be $13k for Year 1, not considering promotion. Should I wait? I do eventually want to pivot to internal talent but worry about the title and advancement.

In a conundrum. Started a new Senior CW job with 10+ yrs experience. The other writer on the team was promoted to Lead CW soon afterward. I discovered they have very little copy and leadership experience. I’ve tried to keep an open mind, but it’s created an awkward dynamic in which I have to manage upward frequently. Worse, this person is actively keeping me out of meetings and presentations. How do I bring this up with our new CD in a productive way without causing drama?

Interviewing advice requested.
Lately, in interviews, more questions are framed “How would you do X in this role?” With how questions, I’m laying out the process I would use and why. Interviewers seem to get frustrated when I answer this way.

Anything I can do to help my sister going through post partum anxiety/ocd? She just texted the family about her struggles and is seeking professional help.

I just want her to know how much she’s loved and supported.
Lately, I’ve felt really demotivated at my job. I’ve lost interest, I feel myself checking out and making mistakes. Idk why. I feel like I want to move jobs, but I don’t even know what I want to do next. I just, don’t care anymore.
Outside of work, I am blessed to have a SO who is caring and supportive. I feel like I should be happy bc I know there are so many struggling.
Anyone ever feel this way? Also, I’ve tried therapy so more so interested in hearing how others have coped. Halp 🥺

A male colleague of mine, who just joined the team this week, has made inappropriate advancements towards me during a team event, touching my leg while talking to me and saying how pretty I am. Worst thing is he’s joining my project too… It’s a no brainer that this is unacceptable, but it’s the first time this happened to me in a work setting and I’m unsure how to handle it. What steps should I take first? Report to HR immediately or speak to my team’s partner first? Any advice is appreciated
