We received an email from IPG today very vaguely saying there will be furloughs, pay reductions, and possibly staff cuts. Anyone at any IPG agencies seen or heard of any of this yet?

Saw that. They made it sound like there have already been furloughs and layoffs. I work at McCann Health and have not heard of any there.

They just announced on Friday that layoffs are definitely coming, just didn’t say how many or hey exactly but I’d imagine soon

Didn’t see any email yet.

MullenLowe already laid people off from what i hear. Aren’t they IPG?

Jack Morton apparently did a paycut across the board, too.

Are layoffs and furloughs happening to people who are scoped and paid for by clients? Who is most at risk?

I’ve seen layoffs at Weber before. There didn’t seem to be a lot of rhyme or reason. People who were fully billable and amazing were let go. Other who were hardly staffed at all stayed. I’d say non-rev roles at risk for sure, but beyond that, hard to say. Make yourself indispensable and do what you can to ensure senior leads (AKA people who might be consulted for layoffs) know it.

I need INTENSIVE case interview coaching. (probably 10-12 weeks of daily sessions). Where should I look and how long should I be casing before submitting the application? I’m especially concerned about spending $5,000 just to get dinged at the resume stage. Any tips on how to navigate that?

Is your organization planning to require employees be vaccinated? I understand why management wants this but concerned about losing good employees because they don’t believe in vaccination or are wanting to wait until more people have been vaccinated to see if there are issues with it. I’m also concerned with moral if we require this. Employees may get it to keep there job but hold on to some bitterness or develop anxiety over it. Am I being too soft or over analyzing?
