This is depressing. Guys

I don’t know. Jobs seem abundant suddenly. It’s creepy

So what you’re saying is there’s opportunity in NYC.

As far as I know, SF hasn’t gotten hit as hard with layoffs.

3rd year SM. Have been allocating slide and model building to junior teammates for so long I legit feel like if I went to industry and have to do real work I would get called out as a fake and be fired immediately. Anyone else feel this way? I’ve always had imposter syndrome but feel this is different because I was good at managing and dealing with clients - but never as creative doing the actual work. Help.

Went to HR to complain about horrible manager. Will I get fired or let go? I was just speaking up for myself.

Our firm is rolling out voluntary hour adjustment/reduced salary and although they are saying this program is not mandatory, I feel pressured because we had few nationwide webcasts on this and partners calling personally to discuss. I understand the worst scenario is to be laid off and taking a reduced salary may be better deal for many. However, the salary here is peanut compared to what they pay in US and cost of living is high - I barely manage with the current pay. Starting to get anxious 😟

Hey! This is a difficult question but here it goes...

I started freelancing in digital marketing in 2018 and I created an agency, it's not legally registered but I have been using the name and putting myself out there as an agency.

In 2021 I started working at another agency and they made signed a non compete agreement. I left that job a few months ago and I'm back to freelancing but I'm worried about the agreement potentially being a pain in the # now or in the near future. Any advice?
