There are a few brand responses to the pandemic that seem a bit tone-deaf. Then, there are some that seem to be genuine efforts at helping. Anyone have examples of brands doing good for humanity?

Patagonia (of course) is going beyond and continuing to pay employees even though their stores are closed, VW and Hyundai are offering legitimate financial relief to those who lease... and Toyota, well, they’re broadcasting awareness ads that use the pandemic to basically say nothing of substance.

Our toddler is potty trained but still wears a pull-up overnight. Lately he’s been waking up a bit early (maybe half an hour) and peeing the bed - he tries to pull down the pull-up while half-asleep laying in bed. We think it’s time for night training. Can you share your success stories where you had to actually train a bit for overnight?? We were really hoping we’d just be able to ditch the diaper after a few weeks of him waking up dry …

Hi, new to this bowl.

Looking for a new role leading a PM and/or ops team. I'm an agency (media & creative) vet - depth in digital, crm, creative, tech, data, & process dev/deploy.

Have also worked ~4 years transforming / running ops at Kimbery-Clark's Digital COE and ~a year on web & digital projects at NYU Langone Medical Center.

Do IH agencies have substantial PM teams / need for leadsrship? I know many need operations & process enhancement.

Any specific roles on anyone's radar?

Thx!

Hi all! 👋🏻 I am a marketing professional with 3 years of experience and am currently interviewing for Associate Brand Manager positions at big firms (e.g., Colgate-Palmolive, Pepsico, Disney, etc.). These positions are located in cities like NY or LA. Based on my research and cost of living estimations, I’m asking for around 120k base salary. However, I’m very suprised to see that many recruiters immediately tell me they can only pay around 50-80k. Do you think my expectations are unrealistic?

A competitor recently started using some visual elements that are heavily incorporated in our new company branding (new as in two years).

I just finished what I thought was the final round of interviews for a job that I really want. Everything has been going extremely well. The recruiter just called to tell me that they want me to do one more round, though. This will make 8 interviews total, including a full case study presentation to 4 people. Should I be worried? Is this a red flag?
