BCG US fishies!
If i applied to BCG China 1 year ago & got rejected, can i reapply now with a consultant's referral to the US (no resume improvements, just referral + applying to new geography)? Does BCG track applications globally & do they strictly require 2 years new experience for reapplicants? Would the consultant's referral make a difference in getting an interview 1 year post-rejection?

Split classes take away joy! We have 6-7 classes at each grade level and they split 1-2 into the remaining 5 so we can have a 5 day schedule. Big classes plus the classroom culture homeroom teachers work so hard to achieve are ruined. Advice? (Plus we are told to "not be negative" by admin.)

Am I being too judgmental? During the interview process I ask questions that help me identify culture. During my recent interview I directly asked “How would you describe your culture?”, and it was described as “work hard, play hard”. I expected a much more meaningful reply. Thoughts?

What do you do when you’ve been a solid contributor, valued member to a growing team, who always goes the extra mile, and gets positive praise daily from coworkers plus great reviews yet as a mid level production designer with a multitude of skills (who’s been knowingly underpaid but enjoys the freedom of working remote) has her creative director quit (who labored his team out of love) - domino effect, eventually their team falls apart and you find yourself being laid off “effective now”
I’m currently 7 weeks pregnant, so it’s still too early to make any announcement. I don’t have to work since my husband takes care of bills and since I got laid off with covid happening, there were no jobs to apply to. Now people are reaching out to me or I do see job postings that I would love to apply to, but if it gets to the point where I am offered the job, do I tell them I’m pregnant right away? Would they not want to hire me anymore? ￼￼￼I want to be honest
Currently a VP at a $2M annual digital agency and switching jobs to be manager level in a big brand. I’m desperate to get out of my current gig before starting a family and excited about my next step but can’t help but think this is a downgrade. I’ve worked agency side for 12 years and this is my first foray into brand side. Pay is a little more and better benefits. Am I crazy for thinking this is a step back?
I'm pretty good at my job. I have to say that because what I'm asking could be skewed if I wasn't, but logically I know I am. Does anyone else have an intense fear of getting fired? I started my career at a toxic agency, and in my personal life I've watched so many of my friends struggle for months (sometimes years) to find a job. How do I handle this fear of being fired for some reason or another? Because that anxiety is not just affecting my overall work quality but also my life in general.

Stay at an agency that isn’t doing anything now but will (maybe) in the future or go to an agency where you will for sure be making stuff but not sure it will be good stuff?

I’m curious if there are any men in this bowl - either because it is more supportive than some of the others or because you’re here to get some perspective. Not here to shame anyone out of the bowl, just wondering. I’m in the juniors bowl just because I am interested to hear what their concerns are because it helps me as a manager.
I’ve worked with two junior (but ambitious) account women in the past year whose boyfriends don’t like for them to travel so they don’t go on shoots. Or they go minimally. How is this a thing?

Men get more feedback than women. Thought I’d share what I just heard on a podcast with Sallie Krawcheck. And we should actively seek feedback because it’s not given to us as much.
