My CD is about to get fired because my partner and I are leaving. The reason? “He can’t keep a team for any length of time.” We’ve been there 2 years, what do they want, a lifelong commitment ?

When I left my CDs team, I heard the same thing. They hired new people and world kept on spinning.

Yeah but if this is a pattern then maybe it IS a problem

Not their problem.

Maybe they realize that your CD can’t take credit for other people’s work when there aren’t any other people around

We have had tons of creatives leave our company but there's no word about the head ppl being ousted as a result. If ppl keep leaving, it's the job of the ecd or cco to step it. It's as much their fault as your cd.

From talking to students at multiple M7 schools, it seems like all of the BB/MBB/FAANG companies recruit at most if not all of the schools . So if you're planning on recruiting for one of these, is there really a major difference in career opportunities between each school? Asking because it seems like some schools are specifically known for finance vs consulting vs tech, but if the companies are all recruiting at all these schools, the differences don't seem as pronounced to me.

I’m all about that work from home life. However it is insulting and unprofessional when a colleague who is in the office blows off a scheduled meeting with you when you are virtual as they bumped into another colleague in the office. Anyone else noticing issues like this now that we are in this hybrid mode. How do you address it?

How safe is Houston downtown for a female staying alone with a young kid for a few months? Being very close to the office and daycare, and availability of public transport (doesn't drive) are reason for preffering downtown. However, have been reading about the recent crime surge there. If someone is generally back home by 8 PM or earlier, and will probably take Uber locally, is it still risky. Also welcome any good apartment suggestions. Thanks
