It was actually everyone who makes over $100k. They asked you to “volunteer” for a 10% pay cut. At the time I thought it was lame because who would say no? Can you say “hello next round of layoffs?” I’m shocked and touched that they are reimbursing us. They didn’t have to. They also gave us 100% of our 401k match they had suspended. I’m rarely proud of Publicis. But this made me proud.

Yep, it was country / vertical / agency specific.

How is this fake PR? As someone who took the cut and then was unexpectedly reimbursed - I mean, it was spectacular. They never even hinted that might happen, and I’ve never heard of another company doing something like it.

In some companies it was everyone > $200k salary

The whole of the U.K. was pretty aggressive.

🤔 Is it regular employees or do they really have 6,000 executives?

As someone who makes over $100k they never asked me to take a pay cut. But glad those executives got their money back.

Yeah there seems to have been inconsistent criteria across the board. I took the paycut and I'm in legal. I don't think I qualify as an "executive."

When fuckin Publicis is doing something good, you know your holding company overlords are being shitty.

My brother and sister in law put their five month old in daycare for the first time on Friday. Yesterday they get told by the daycare that there was covid exposure, so they test him and he’s positive. So he literally got covid on his first day at daycare. No symptoms yet but wtf. We saw them on Saturday with our two week old so now we are freaking out that the two week old could have it (my mother in law literally used the other kids burp cloth to wipe my kids face when I wasn’t watching).

Now this clearly isn’t the case have you changed your stance?
