If I don't get fired before the Xmas party I'm safe right? Like they won't fire me after the Xmas party unless I do something else. I figure they would've fired me b4 the party if they were going to
Anyone have experience moving from agency to I’m-house or brand side? I was just let go from Edelman & it was my 2nd lay-off in 2 years and my 3rd agency. I’m worried if I look at another agency (if they’re even hiring) that I’ll get laid off again. I was an SAE. Any advice is welcome!
Got laid off my full time AD job & trying to pick up freelance but I’m very new to this... Any advice for calculating hourly rates?? What’s an average range? (For reference: was making ~$75k in NYC)
Accenture Strategy layoffs? .....👀
KPMG is taking the PWC approach to audit layoffs. Low performers will be separated rather than defining a RIF, but we all know it’s a lay-off by another name.
If the big4 has an up or out model, do a lot of senior managers get laid off? Not everyone can be a partner/principle. How long can someone be a partner/principle for?
I was laid off in April when there was just email and phones. Cut to five months later and I’m working again. Yay. But suddenly it’s all Zoom, Slack, Teams, Slides, Sheets. Email is dead. And phones are only for Zoom, Slack, Teams, Slides and Sheets. It feels like I woke up from a coma in a shitty version of the future and everyone else is fine with it. How did anyone adjust to this?
After 5 years of good ratings I was terminated from a regional CPA firm, but my last day is next month. Am I obligated to tell a prospective employer I was fired while I am technically still employed?
For people that were laid off last year or have been job searching for a few months, how are you staying optimistic and dealing with the interview fatigue? I feel like coping with rejections is one thing and I can bounce back from those but the burnout from interviewing and repeating stories is something else 😏
Anyone worried about layoffs? I saw a post about Deloitte laying off 5000 employees ... I know EY saying no lay off this year but what about other firms?
Despite the rosy rhetoric from Corporate America, the truth remains: last hired/first fired. https://m.huffpost.com/us/entry/us_5f5fa3c0c5b68d1b09c5eabc
I got laid off today and need a new job asap. Would love to connect with anyone looking for a junior writer.
Why did Deloitte’s federal practice have layoffs? Given that the clients are large government entities. I can understand it happening in commercial but federal makes no sense
Just got told by managers that my performance hasn't met their expectations. High performer last year. Am I getting fired?
Does staying at a job too long make you less marketable? A CFO who worked at a company for over a decade and was fired because of cut backs was hired for temp work. An accounting manager of 6 years was hired for tech support. How does this happen?
I have an interview with OATLY’s creative team tomorrow. Are there any OATLY creatives here, would love know what it’s really like on the inside since a lot of in-house teams are a hit /miss. Would love to hear thoughts on management too!

What’s the going salary to support a CEO in NYC in advertising? EA has over 20 yrs experience supporting senior executives (MD’s, group heads, CIO’s) in various fields, but first time supporting CEO, in case that matters. Thanks in advance!
I need opinions on this. Just started a new PM role (at an IPG agency) last month but I recently got hit up by a recruiter from another agency (WPP agency) for a pretty enticing PM role on a 360 AOR account. Further context: The PM role I'm in currently is my first PM role ever (I came from an entry level AE/Producer backgrund) I know jumping ship for the other PM role would look terrible but tell me why you would OR would not jump ship?
I love my job at EY but the salary sucks. I have barely seen a 100 dollar raise monthly past three and half years. My salary started out at 62 and is barely there at 74 now. How do we negotiate here
Pwc folks: I heard 4-codes don't count toward utilization anymore in advisory? I'm doing 4 code work now, do I get grandfathered in or is my utilization getting slammed?

Has anyone noticed that busy season is changing into a marathon, not a sprint? I’m working close to 60 billable hours/week year round, and 70+ Feb - April. Is this a bigger trend?

Who have you noticed is hiring again? Thanks in advance :)
To con't the conversation on engagement rings💍 - what do they symbolize to you? My BF and I got into a discussion about this last night. He views them as an investment and an "asset" on the books for his future family. He also has grandparents who had to finance their trip to America by selling their jewels. I see the ring as more of a gift to the future bride that is an expense that can be sold for money if needed, but isn't an investment. I'm fine w/ lab grown, he is not. Thoughts?
