When the client lags to make a decision, makes the timeline super tight, asks you to work during a lot of the holiday break to make the deadline but also buys the idea you like and approves a SUPER hefty budget.
My agency canceled their holiday party. Except we are actually very profitable. Except we are part of a holding company.
Are there any notable agency rebrands that have happened over the last year (or even two)? Accenture Song comes to mind but are there others?

Any advice on breaking into more broadcast work? Currently I have digital, social, shopper, and some video work, but I’d like to work more on broadcast and more 360 stuff. I’ve heard if you can show y…

Currently interviewing for a WPP Agency in NYC. Anyone have any insight on benefits, PTO, etc..?
Curious..anyone in search or social that’s in a senior role or manager role with the same agency they started with…how long did it take you to get promoted each time?
Any word on Mediacom RTO? Heard about GroupM and Wavemaker but I haven’t received any notice or email and we’re a month away from it being implemented 😐 is the merger causing delays?
Just trying to make it to the holiday break
Has anyone who works in advertising feel like you are less and less likely to people please as time goes on? Or the opposite
who does the hiring at Mischief or Mojo Supermarket or Party Land or literally any shop doing the most creative work right now? It feels so gatekeepy. I want to throw my hat in the ring and network, b…
Could anyone provide recommendations for pr/ad agencies in the Boston area? I'm an account executive with two years of agency experience looking to move to Boston from Philly and would ideally lik…
There seems to be quite the debate of when the market will improve. Does anyone have an idea of when we can stop speculating?
During Covid I bounced around a lot (had 3 jobs over 21 months) and was actually fired from my last job in December.

Can someone ELI5 this for me? How is this not just a discount? And if the other beer brands don't care about being attacked are those drinkers even the target audience they want?
Where are all the proper ACDs at? Either it's senior/mid creatives who have been promoted too early or ACDs who did the job for a year and are now freelancing as creative directors.
Strategists, planners and CDs: Can we please share these stats with our clients? Then maybe we could all get fun work approved? And maybe our clients would see better results, too? Probably some here will say that followers don't equal sales, but I would bet most clients would love as much PR chatter (in addition to followers) as Liquid Death gets. Creatives, imagine if selling work like Liquid Death's was the norm. Man, our life would be so fun.
