Career Tip: Martyrdom is not rewarded in the workplace. Take your PTO. Take care of your body & your mind. Have interests and strong relationships outside of work so that you do not attach undue importance to the people at work. Protect your peace.
Got an offer from another big4 on Thurs. Scheduled a call with MD on Fri bcoz the next Mon was my planned PTO. MD had an idea what it was about but didn’t wanna join. Sent text msg so that we could talk on the phone(since this is the MD’s preferred way of communication) No response. I came back from PTO the next Thurs and pinged the MD right away to talk and was ghosted. turned in my notice on Friday. MD then scheduled a call with me on my last day with the firm. Thoughts on this MD’s behavior?

Is it the right time to buy Zoom?
I’m not saying anything we don’t already know, but enter your stupid time every day. I got two weeks behind and I’m basically writing my own time off as I’m scrambling to get everything in before the month-end cutoff because I can’t remember what I did.
I have been working in SEA region last 4 years. I feel burned out. I have 10yoe, I have try to move to other country but I pretty much suck in LeetCode. I want to take some time off to unwind, finish some personal business, and really prepare for interviews. I would like to hear from you. Should I quit to my current manager(5th so far) or wait after mid year performance review, when a new boss will take over my team? I'm thinking on giving them 2 months notice period. By contract is 1.
Has anyone travelled in the Carrabeans in October? I know its rainy season, but how bad is it really? Trying to book an all-inclusive vacation in early October..
Had a zoom interview today that didn’t go because zoom wouldn’t connect. I updated the software and restarted it and everything prior. Worked right after with my roommate. It’s been rescheduled but can help but feel like I’ve already made a poor impression.
Does your agency give a holiday bonus?
Any ideas on how to negotiate a delayed start date? I really want it to be Jan. My mental health needs some time off and this company breezed through interviews to offer in 1 week when I was expecting it to take at least a month. I really need some time to recover from burnout.
Is it justifiable to ask for a raise after 7-months? Especially if you’re the only designer on some of their biggest clients, carrying slack from seniors + producing quality work in no time?
Currently looking for an outside sales position in Massachusetts.
I have 7 years experience in sales. But I am relocating from North Carolina to Massachusetts.
Would anyone happen to know any great companies hiring?
A majority of my experience is in the logistics and logistics technology side of sales. I’ve been working remotely doing over the phone/ zoom demo sales. But I would love the opportunity to service my clients in person!
Hi Everyone! Thank you all for joining! Please message ideas if we have a second call. I know Zoom can be hard.
Also - FYI - This bowl limits posts to 2 every 4 hours so couldn't send anything earlier.
Hi! Can someone recommend a source for learning how do simple, fun music lessons on Zoom? I teach first grade and use music for my transitions. I would also like to play songs for them with my guitar, but am concerned it won’t sound good on zoom (the guitar, not my voice, which is bad, we established that long ago)
I’m taking a few calls for new opps at a couple different firms and wanted to get a pulse on feelings from folks who actually work there to help me narrow it down. Agencies are: Weber Shandwick, Ruder Finn, FleishmanHillard and a smaller boutique called LifeSci Communications. From The sounds of other threads on here, I’m nervous about WS. Looking for a read on Work/Life balance, how well staffed they are, avg pay range (VP level), PTO/holidays/benefits, etc. So, how do you like working there?

I'm currently in the process of looking for new work. I've scaled it to be around 6-8 months before I can leave. I have so many projects on me and never enough coverage to even take a weeks pto. I feel immense guilt if I put in two weeks and call it quits. Yet I have people booking me months in advance for work, without consideration if I'm doing okay. My pto is always maxed out and I'm burned out. I love the work that I do just not my company's treatment of its employees.

I hope I find fellow-writer compatriots here who hate buzzwords as much as I do. Verbnouns like "The Ask" and current trendy word "unpack" make me imagine murder sprees. It's a writer thing right?
Is any F here from Chicago??
I felt confused when I saw Buttigieg’s name on the speaker list at DNC convention and no name of Yang anywhere. (Pointing PB out because he was mayor of South Bend, elected with very few votes). The speaker list was long.. so many people yet not a single Asian American was there. I was so confused. And some people said Asians are not in their head because Asians do not fit their box. I am glad he said something about it and got added but feel not so great he was omitted initially.. meh 🙄
Looking to start therapy again. Going through bios of the therapists and I see some white people who may be a good fit for me, but I’m also wondering if it’s better to have a black female therapist. What has been your experience either way?
Billable hours- anyone know of or work at a big law firm where 1800 hours is acceptable?

Hello All, I recently joined TCS and i was allocated to one project by RMG on Friday but PM is not responding properly (He seems least interested in taking me). He said they will evaluate and confirm if I’m suitable for their project. I do not have any idea about my RMG spoc.
Can you please suggest what can be done in this situation?
Can i apply to any project from Ultimatix?

Aloha instead of Halloween? We rarely get this many opportunities for free alcohol + snacks, so wondering if Dana is bait and switching us...
As of late, my work related anxiety has reached new levels and it’s really starting to affect me mentally. I’m part of a great team; I’m trusted and supported, have a great track record, there are no issues, and have been no incidents. Regardless, my professional self perception and confidence is so rattled as of late, it’s almost like a paralysis at times. I realize there are much larger problems right now, but if anyone has any tips or advice to get over this, I am all ears. Thanks all!
Hello FCB - I’ve made attempts to connect with HR for an open position and I get no response. True, I may not be right for the role. If that were the case wouldn’t I get the rejection form letter? I applied through a link an employee set up for me. Can anyone throw me a life line? tia...
Alright everyone, best thing that happened at work this week!?
I’ll start: finding a middle ground where everyone came away happy.
Enjoy the long weekend!
Does FCB have a company rate or company login for the Ad Age or Ad Week websites? Looking for ways to get discounts on accessing their content
Did you have fun at the Halloween party?
My boss is a smart rainmaker for the organization. But she bullies people to get her way and doesn’t let people express their opinions. She is very high up and I don’t know what to do. I don’t trust HR and fear it getting back to her and the retribution.
Serious question: Why’d we have to migrate our network logins to FCB Health in addition to our emails? Couldn’t we have just started listing our emails as “@fcbhealth” but logging in as “@FCB”?
Our old emails instantly forward to our current ones, so I don’t see why it couldn’t be the other way.
How is it working on the FCB Health NY social strategy teams? Do you like your work/job? Do you feel supported?
Can anyone give me honest feedback on what being a copywriter is like at FCB Health NY? I have an interview but looking on here all I see is *really* negative feedback, so I’m very apprehensive. Glassdoor has a lot of bad reviews too. I’m currently at a smaller agency and I like it, but getting the itch to move up in salary & have more opportunities to produce good work. Tempted by FCB for those reasons, but value work/life balance.
I felt very good following Dana’s Town Hall. Having heard other networks are already facing furloughs and layoffs, did you feel as encouraged?
So who wants to continue WFH forever?! Think that’ll be an option? Curious how this will play out in a few months.
I have applied for a Junior Strategic Planner role in NYC. I was now asked what my salary expectations are...what range is appropriate here? I have 2 years of experience and a Masters in Marketing.
