Anyone else having crazy layoffs this week? 😞
Ummm serious question How many clients/brands should an agency copywriter be working on each week? I'm working on 5-6 per week. Everything from scripts, to rationales, to viewbooks and websites tbh. I feel like lm working on 10-11 clients a month. Is this normal?
Have one week for shopping mortgage for first house. Where do i start, any online sites , credit unions or mortgage agencies that are offering low rate loans. First time home buyer so no clue what to look for. Any tips to work with PMI, points , loan terms.
Have a call with a recruiter today where I’m 95% sure I will receive an offer. If the TC is less than what I’d like, should I be hesitant & counter on the call itself or ask to take some time to fully look into the comp and then counter over email? Not sure what common practice is.
If agency/client teams made tomato bisque: "Tastes delicious. It needs hot sauce. Let's add that and pass it off to the sous chef." "Hmm, not sure about the hot sauce. Take it out and add some salt. Also let's put some squash in there. Let's let the head chef take a look." "No, let's go back to what we had before. Are we sure a spoon is what we need for cutlery?" "Forks are huge on insta right now. What if we did a two-tuned fork?" "YES. Okay, the maitre'd thinks we should put the squash back in." "Would it be possible to also put salt on the fork?"
4th year litigation associate in Houston. Big firm on Cravath. Looks like I’ll cap out around 2100 hours YTD; hour requirement is 2000. I’ve received half of COVID bonus (expect other half to come end of year). Been receiving good feedback from partners and senior associates. What can I expect for discretionary year end bonus?

Thoughts on traveling during the Corona Virus? A little nervous, am considering driving the 5 hours each week & expensing miles instead of flying
@partners - I have two opportunities. One is to lead a group for a corporation (industry). The other is to join another consulting firm, doing the same work that I am doing now. While the comp will be better to stay in consulting and I do like the idea of becoming a partner one day, I am intrigued with the steady industry role... any advice?
So that's a first. Sitting in the client site's main conference room, start to smell someone getting lit up in a room nearby at 10am
When you go from C to M1, do you get the manager bonus that same promotion cycle, or does it not apply until the next year?
How cautious are people actually being during coronavirus? I’ll make a poll in the comments, but is there any data on stay at home compliance?
Agencies (in-house or otherwise) who are worth making an effort for in Austin, TX, specifically for project managers and creative operations? Asking for a friend. (FOR REAL.)
How do I get my old project to leave me alone? I rolled off, but they keep calling me in for little things. My new project leads are okay with it for now, but I want it to end. What to do?
