After layoffs and people quitting I’m just realizing that I’m going to be the most senior art person left...I’m a jr art director a year out of school now working with an ECD and a bunch of interns...
If you haven't had your CRT yet because your RP is MIA (which isn't out of the ordinary), should you be concerned about layoffs?
Blue shield of CA fired 375 people. Any other insurance companies having massive layoffs?
I missed my flight tonight to get to work tomorrow at 8 AM because of a gate change. Now I'm arriving tomorrow at noon. Am I getting fired?
Hey guys. Was laid off as a generalist consultant last month. My eventual goal is to get into data analytics and data science. At this point I’m really good with excel and have some working knowledge in both SQL and tableau. I feel kinda lost still, what should I be learning specifically? I’d love to chat and learn about what you guys do and a bit of mentoring (if you’re up for it). Thanks in advance!
Hi Doordash 🐠, has there been discussions of layoffs? Is DD planning on doing any? Thanks, from a potential hire
I was laid off Q4 2019. I'm hopeful something will pan out within the next couple of months. Severance has now ended. Wondering if I should apply for unemployment. Any downside?
Was recently laid off by EY, can anyone here from industry can refer? I am from Tax and would like try out industry opportunities. Any help is appreciated.
Laid off by Deloitte and although having immediate rehire eligibility (pmd said this) firm is sparsely hiring. Got a director level role in industry and am psyched to start soon! Learned a lot at the firm and am excited for my next opportunity.
I was laid off and now venturing into the freelance world for the first time. Hourly rates are a bit foreign to me. What’s a good range for someone with 15 years of experience?
has lek laid off their recruiting team?
How often do you worry about being fired?
On layoffs: really funny how no one in leadership was blamed, people who they need to get stuff done were sacked and there was no conversation on how the company can change to navigate the market.
Layoff in IQVIA?
What are potential exit opportunities unrelated to Workday? I understand the certs and are why most of the recruiters reaching out to me are for other Workday opportunities, but curious on what other types of roles/jobs are possible. Thanks!
Suggestions for shells to wear under a suit? I hate wearing tanks because then I have the dreaded deodorant marks on my blazer lining.

Do people use their HSA to actually pay for health expenses or just as a triple tax advantaged savings account for retirement? Seems like all talk on here emphasizes the tax benefits of it, so I am curious if people use to spend or just save

Hello, my doctors office just called saying I have low thyroid numbers but no action yet, that they would retest next month. I am currently 14 weeks and very anxious! Of course, I am not looking for medical advice, but wanted to know if others had experienced this and would be willing to share what happened to them or what they did? Many thanks!!
A friend of mine from Norway, who I met when he was an exchange student at our law school, has had enough of the stress and is leaving his big law job in Norway to become a high school teacher in law and social sciences. He says he couldn’t have been happier.
I’m strongly considering doing the same thing or becoming a LS professor. Pay cut would be massive, but the job would be way more meaningful and relaxing.
But then there are the loans…

How does one react when told by a ‘ New boss’ that they are territorial? Also, this boss refuses to provide insight into their vision of your role.
Female peer (client services) gunning for my job. I know she won’t get it, but should I say something about the bad behavior?
Hi! Does anyone have any great resources for culture and team bonding for remote teams? Any activities or questions you’ve used in the past to help a team come together? Have any good book recommendations? I think we might also need outside coaching to help with team work/ collaboratively working together but I have no idea if we have any kind of budget…just trying to get an idea of how other teams are coming together to build a great culture remotely.
Hi all! I’m a social media strategist at a multicultural ad agency and I was looking for some resources (books, articles, podcasts, etc) about marketing from a multicultural perspective.
Thank you in advance!
I always wonder if there are men on this channel... because if there were a men channel I’d be in there creeping.

Have an urgent scripting deadline for tomorrow & feeling a little dejected from being sidelined for being outspoken/ not falling in line in a fairly toxic workplace —it’s been on for months & I might not last long + plus have a writing career outside.
Any advice to how to not lose faith in my own work before even starting? Ps I work hard + have won a few awards at the same place before I was cast away. Tips on scripting welcome too. 🙏🏽😞
We've been told that the office reopens 2/22 and we're expected to work onsite 3 days/week. Period. No further info. Any ideas how this will work? Do more agencies do it by discipline (creative on M/W/F, account on W/T/F, etc.)? Or by client teams? I truly don't think there's room for all us to show up every day. And why do you suppose we haven't gotten any updates from upper management?
Has anyone used a job offer to get a title and pay bump at their current job?
I love the team I work with, and the company is great, however getting a title bump and more money is not something I can pass up on. I know this is done especially during "The Great Resignation/upgrade".
How would you approach your boss and still have a good relationship?
Anyone work/know someone who works for mindbodygreen? Pretty niche but shooting my shot!
I was told a client thought I had an attitude because of my facial reactions in a meeting. But I made a concerted effort not to react while she was berating me for something someone else wrote 😐 how are you supposed to act when a client is criticizing you and being out of line? I was literally trying not to show my frustration but I guess being stoic backfired. Maybe I’ll just keep my camera off.
Needing advice! Fully remote and I have a young team member (He doesn’t report to me but I do oversee/train/delegate to him) who is consistently late to meetings, is always “apologizing” for forgetting to do things/skipping parts of the process. I’ve tried to be understanding as I know this is his first job and likely not his passion but I’ve had about enough…at this point it easier for me to do the things I’d normally pass to him. What should I do?
Our agency (WPP PR shop) used to have a really competitive PTO offering. For this year, HR has changed time off to be split into true paid time off and “wellness days”. I’ve seen this when interviewing elsewhere as well, does anyone know why companies do this? It’s meant a decrease in the more flexible true PTO bucket for employees.
What’s a fun inexpensive gift I can send to my nieces (5 and under) who are also quarantining? They want lol dolls but I wanted to think of something unexpectedly fun and memorable
Anybody else feeling burned out and crabby today? 😳
I run a strategy firm that does consumer research & brand strategy for tech, luxury, lifestyle brands. Looking to connect with strategy SVPs and CSOs who would want to work w/a WOC/Women owned vendor!
I re-read my email draft and had to delete “just” TWICE! Ladies, we need to stop saying “just” as a qualifier. It subtly minimizes our presence and message.
Make a conscious effort to remind yourself of the things you’re doing well and of how far you’ve come. Regularly take stock of your days and replay good moments, no matter how small. Our brains are built to remember negative experiences. They don’t need help noticing our mistakes; they need help noticing our victories.
Excellent point. I heard recently on the Two Guys On Your Head podcast that you build resilience by reframing failure. Instead of I didn’t make the basketball team, everyone else is just better than me, you think I know what I need to work on and I’ll practice harder for next year. You take agency. I have been using this to reframe some negative personal feedback got at work. I’m not an unlikable person. I just need to learn how to communicate with specific people in a different way. Small, but it works.
I was the same way post baby. Now some days I’m on and some days I really struggle to do one task. On my on days, I really try to grind and then on my off days at least I’m somewhat caught up and can cut myself some slack. Stepping away usually helps too. And therapy!
I went through a pretty dark depressive episode for about a year and (after therapy) came out of it mentally stronger - but, like you said, initially I just felt slower at everything.
But! I learned that I wasn’t broken or something - it was just that my old ways of working just didn’t work for me anymore.
I just had to find different rhythms to get my work done and now I’m more productive again.
So, maybe try experimenting with how you manage your time, your work environment, your boundaries, and sort of start from scratch with yourself in some ways to find what “productive” looks like for you now.
You’ll get back to it, this is totally normal.
Thank you so much for your kindness – it really helps 👏🏽😗’
It’s a muscle. Work longer and harder and really celebrate when the good stuff comes out of your brain. You’ll get back to where you were. Congrats on getting work!
Your career and your life are yours. No one can take away your accomplishments or rewrite your interpretation of being a strong producer. Their loss, not yours.
My work was also my identity and a job loss hit hard. I realize now, it was for the best and I’m now a CCO looking to build a better agency with my learnings.
Remember, life decisions will change and grow you, but hold on to what you’ve learned and use it to strengthen your next chapter. Chin up, you’ve got this! ❤️
You guys ♥️ partly, it’s because we were trying for a kid when the layoff happened. And now we’ve stopped that too. I just can’t think of that anymore. Weird huh. Life just got put on hold. I guess I was in an ok place for a life-changing moment and then life turned its ass on me, and I don’t think I’d be able to think about coping with a tiny person anymore/ right now. Only just back into freelance work until I feel ok to get a perm job (and I’d need parental leave $ security too). It’s crazy how much we use work to shape our identities.
I am doing therapy, meditating, running & reading all your suggestions. Love the idea of remembering your positives - maybe I’ll start a gratitude journal too. Just want this fog to lift. I used to be such a badass, plate-spinning producer. Now if I have 4 projects I feel swamped. I guess time heals 🙏
