Hey ladies, in need of some advice! Have been in the same company for 20 years, got headhunted for a senior exec role which I got! Am super happy but at the same time feeling anxious as to whether I will be good enough!!!
I’d be leaving behind my network and a great structure / system around me! Any advice from those that left after being in their company for so long and how they found it?
Inflation costs are killing my pipeline. Many of my deals are scaling back greatly because of their rising operating costs.
How do we overcome the inflation objection? I mean obviously the answer is to show how much value we offer, but how do we do that when all of the companies we work with barely have enough funding?
They need our services, which is at least some job security, but their scale back is greatly affecting our projections and quota attainment.
First-year looking to make a move from NY biglaw (general corp) - any tips on process? And am I giving in too early? Grateful for the experience but don’t think biglaw is for me. Want to continue to build skills but willing to give up prestige/biglaw $$ for a semblance of a life.
Question for anyone who was laid off but found a new job:
If you request unemployment between the offer and starting, do you not receive the benefit? Worried about stating I've received an offer and that I'm no longer looking, though my new employer is the one having me wait a few weeks.

Accenture 🐠, anyone in marketing willing to refer someone? There’s a job post (req id 00724994) that I KNOW someone would be perfect for. We’d take him but we’re laying mfs off left & right 🤣
Can anyone share insight to the IB associate interview? I may be lateraling over, and then I assume it’s more deal focused? There isn’t a ton of info to associate vs analyst.
What would you say is a reasonable amount of money to spend on a customized workout program? This is a one-time thing, virtual, and includes 3 video form checks.
We as a community need to stick together to make the value of SLPs known. When I was just starting in the field for my CFY I was offered $31/hr for a job in an SNF (in 2018). At this time I was fresh out of college and did not know what pay to expect because no one talks about it. - I did not take the job due to it being a little over an hour from my home but later learned that was not a good rate. I currently still feel as if I am underpaid. Add your city, state, setting, pay, etc
This is how I feel sometimes
It's a BEACH DAY! 🌊🏖🐶😂
Hey Fish crew,
Any opportunities for IT M&A consultants focused on integration, separation more than DD. If so, pls share. Thx Fish crew!!!
Big4 and Mid tier- All partners have a vesting period and if you leave before that 10 year mark , you dont get those retirement benefits correct? I noted some firms actively push out partners nearing that 10 year period. I have seen it happen. Is that a normal practice to shake out some dead weight so to speak before they reach that 10 year mark? Seems cut throat but is that part of the business now?
I received an offer I can’t turn down. My company had a few others leave recently, and my close counterpart is on vacation until October, so the GC and rest of the company will likely be in disarray after I leave.
Any advice on how to put in my 2 weeks? I’d prefer to leave on a good note and not a sour one…
LateralLink thoughts? Success? Terrible?
(As in, “did you use to use it successfully to lateral and were they good/scammy/useless?”)
Wait, did TMobile just copy a meme again??? The old “text isn’t Google, old-and-out-of-touch parent”??

How do I reach out to CDs at my agency about being willing to work for them on the brand they lead—picking up any briefs, sending them proactive ideas, etc?
Got an offer from company A, more interested in another company, but last chat about 6weeks ago with CCO of company B said they weren’t hiring right away but they wanted to reach out to people so when hiring freeze ended they could hiring immediately. Is it okay to email them about offer from company A, and see if I can get a timeline on their hiring and gauge their interest? Do I contact the CCO or their recruiter? Best practices to go about this
I just started a new job and I’m battling really bad imposter syndrome. Does anyone else consistently have to force themselves to overcome this? I’m having a hard time because it becomes crippling and leads to toxic self-editing.
I'd love some feedback on a manifesto I just wrote. I'm not the most confident writer and welcome any tips, tricks, thoughts, or tweaks. Thanks.

At your agency what's the balance of design work like between designers and art directors?
In the past 2 months, I’ve interviewed at 3 agencies. I turned down 2 offers while waiting to hear back from my fave. As I go into week 5 of waiting. I’m feeling dumb AF for turning down those offers.
CD posts to LinkedIn looking for talent and encouraging folks to email or DM. They don't respond to either (clearly not intersted). Kinda rude or to be expected?
As a Planner, what can I do to make sure that creatives actually enjoy receiving my briefs, and that they are useful?
Stay Tight with Your Clients.
When I started in this business last century, clients were a pain in my ass. I hated them and appreciated account services keeping them at arm’s length. But that was the wrong attitude. With more experience, I started cultivating personal client relationships. So now, although I recently got caught in a layoff, I find I have enough client interest to literally start my own (small) agency.
More layoffs are coming! Creatives, get tight with your clients now!
Bigger deal: Telly or ADDY?
I’m looking to take a creative solo trip to reconnect and explore my creativity and feel inspired. I have free flights so I can get almost anywhere in the world. Where should I go? How should I structure my time to find the creative nourishment I am craving?
