They had a ton of long D&I seminars for their employees, hitting hard on their commitment to hire BIPOC leadership. Today, they promoted 2 white guys to GCDs who’ve had consistently bad reviews, and hired another white guy as ECD. Oh! And they’ve told their lower-level, high-performing employees that there’s no $ for raises right now.

And “bad reviews” is a nice way of saying “HR reports”.

Not surprising. A few years ago, one of their recruiters told me that if I wanted to get work in the US I should become an art director instead of a copywriter. They said most companies will be hesitant to hire a writer who came from a country where English is not the first language. I’m Indian BTW, and I had already worked in advertising for over 6 years at that point. Completed portfolio school in the US and won several international awards as a writer.

I don’t know about that. I worked there until 5 months ago and out of the 5 or 6 writers, 3 of us were ESL.

How do you get your toddler to adjust to new nanny/au pair, especially if you are home with another kid or working? Our 2.5 year old loved our last au pair but always asked to be with me instead. I’ve been home with him now for a few months and new au pair comes in two weeks. I’ll still be on maternity leave till August so I’ll be home with him and infant and au pair…. Just trying to figure out how best to handle this without stressing him too much.

Hello Ladies! I’ve had a strong desire these past few years to switch from the Aerospace and Defense industry over to consulting. I have finally entered the market to search for a new role, and I had a question about benefits. As a newlywed, I would like to start a family soon and wonder which consulting organizations offered great benefits in terms of maternity leave and health coverage?

Is the hiring slowdown over? I contacted a few firms to inquire about lateral opportunities in late June/early July and was asked to check back in the fall due to hiring freezes. I wonder if I should reach back out or if it's too soon. The news about Skadden's staff layoffs this morning makes me think it's too soon.

Question about credit age and credit scores. If I call up Amex and tell them to open a new credit card and transfer the credit from another card to this new credit line (and cancel the old credit card but keep the old credit line on my new credit card). Would the average age of open credit decrease as a result of both opening a credit card AND losing the credit card I had opened? Or would the age if the second credit card be transferred over.
