My brother is burnt out at a top agency. He’s still on probation and can’t get sick leave. He’s not even allowed to take time off! The job is completely wrong for him but he doesn’t earn enough to save a rainy day fund. He was asked to work when he caught covid. Often works late hours. Is doing an AD role when he is a Creative at heart and has no idea where to go next.
I work in a busy sector and I thought we had it bad, but it’s completely in humane and I need some advice on how to help.

Going out on a limb here, but he might want to get a new job.

For sure. That’s a go brainier lol

That seems bad even for advertising. He should definitely quit and find a new gig.

All you can really do is help him hit up recruiters.

Thank you!! I’m not familiar with agency side but I was told this was the norm. I’m glad to hear it’s not

Start reaching out to your network to see if people you know are hiring and get your brother out of his current job.

Fighting Salary Compression

I have 15+ years vesting in current company/ position, 25 years over all. I love my job!
But for the past 3 years I’m told that my yearly annual increases will be decreased due to reaching a salary ceiling. 2% rate increases barely kept pace with rate of living, especially after this years 8-12% inflation increase. Also, new employees are now being hired at a higher rate.

Anyone else experience this issue? How and what is the best course of action to address?
