No joke I’m pretty sure we have more empty desks than occupied ones at the moment. What a wasteland. Any other agencies have dead zones due to layoffs/mass exoduses?

HH1, have you been to 36? Or 33? 35? Heck even 37 is clearing out and they only have half a floor. New peeps coming in weekly because everyone else is leaving. You must be new

They also moved most of the departments closer together. They used to have us more dispersed. So yes we have lost people but it is made even more dramatic by that movement. My team for example had no layoffs but we look smaller due to them pushing us all together, leaving a bunch of blank space in the middle that already existed.

Whole lot of clients bringing their advertising in house. I can't see that trend reversing for a long while.

One of the primary aims of the criminal justice reform movement is to help ex-convicts re-enter the workforce by sealing criminal records, and making it more difficult for employers to judge applicants based on criminal history. The idea is that people are redeemable and capable of reform. Yet the same movement thoroughly enjoys getting people fired and publicly shaming them for making arguments they find “offensive”. A rapist is capable of reform, but not someone who makes a dumb tweet. Got it.
