At what point do you begin to feel numb (if ever) when you’re done trial and prepping for another trial in a span of 3 months, while mains full caseload of other active litigation cases? Should I be worried that I’m going from engaged and stress to numb and slightly indifferent? Or is this what it feels like to power through? I can’t gauge it anymore? And can’t impose judgment one way or another either.
I just found out I’m pregnant and want to start doing prenatal yoga and biking classes on my Peloton but don’t want my friends/family that follow me to see. Is there anyway to hide this?

Hello everyone! I am an MT at Grail Insights looking for a switch in top consulting firms. Please connect with me. Thanks in advance.
How do you know when it’s time to move to another agency? Do you think it’s important that a strategist works at a few different agencies to get a sense of the various approaches?
Looking for some career advice: fairly happy with my current situation at KPMG but the workload has been unusually high recently and likely will be for a while. Decent salary just not where I think I should/could be and raises/promotions are typically only once a year. My team is great and I actually enjoy the work, but I’ve been contemplating whether I should apply to MBB or other top consulting firms for the chance at a much higher salary. Any advice or experience to share?
Laid off by ZS, today
I’m job hunting in Los Angeles, looking at a variety of titles (HRBP, Sr. HRBP, Manager, Sr. Manager, Director). I have 8 YOE and my SHRM-SCP. I reached my report limit on payscale.com, so I used a variety of other sites to price the roles (BLS, salary.com, Glassdoor, LinkedIn, Robert Half). The problem I’m having is the huge inconsistencies between sources (there are $40k differences between some of the identified medians). (Continued…)
What do MBB recruiting cycle timelines look like for recent grads? ~1 year out of undergrad and hoping to land an entry level role.

Is it normal to be asked to sign an NDA when parting ways with a company? I was in a sketchy situation with my previous employer when COVID hit and had to get a lawyer involved, and in hindsight I feel like I can’t be the only one they are silencing. None of it sits well with me even to this day, but it makes me wonder who and what else is being silenced and if the NDA is worth honoring, when I could be warning others not to work there.

Earlier I posted an opinion about a non-advertising related subject and somebody talked down to me because I'm a junior copywriter. Just want to reiterate, the subject had nothing to do with advertising and the person used my advertising job title to talk down to me. This bowl can be kind of insufferable sometimes.
