VPs have a tough job. They are squeezed from the top to perform. The are squeezed from the bottom to lay off. It’s a thankless position.

VICE Toronto and recently-closed Montreal offices were pretty chill. A few divas but of the benign sort.

Vice President isn’t a title, it’s a pay structure. There are plenty of pleasant VPs in agency land. A ton of entitled jerks too, but some agencies just hand out the title and pay bonuses to people who they couldn’t get to work there otherwise

Junior cap markets associate at a V25 and I'm on track this month to bill 280+ hrs at my current rate and more in October. I'm miserable doing deal work with a group I have shown zero interest in from day 1, but the group I am interested in has been slow over the summer. I dream of going in-house as a mid-level at a non-bank. What are some firms that do company work, i.e., have client companies and do general corporate work for them? Bonus points if tech or energy industry clients!

Hello Fishes, How’s the salary payout put on hold when putting resignation in EY GDS? For example, If I’m putting paper after 20th of this month(September), will I get salary this month? Or will it be on hold for full notice period? Also, after the separation how long will it take EY to process the Full & Final settlement?

Life of non-immigrants depend on the Visa they hold and it’s so sad these companies don’t have a team where we can speak to someone immediately in case of a visa emergency situation . In EY you need to submit a form and wait for days together to get a reply from a human. Mean time you would have gone through 5 anxiety attacks.
