What are some of the most frustrating experiences you’ve had working with commercial directors?

Client killed 8 months of work just a few days before the shoot. Feeling completely crushed.

I had a fail career as a rapper. Did a few mixtapes, had features with French Montana... my videos featuring “adult themes” are floating around on YouTube and my client just found one. Boss is pissed

I’ve officially reached the “can’t stand when great things happen to truly awful/bullying/universally disliked/mean/arrogant/constant complaints-to-HR industry colleagues” career stage. Yay pettiness!

Struggling to learn a new, big brand because of ACDs who don’t deserve a title with “director” in it. Feels like I’m suck, but I know I just need the right kind of push. Ugh.

I left my job w/ an amazing boss to chase another opportunity & $$. I’m 3 months into my new job & I fucking HATE it. I dread coming in every day. Too soon to leave? Should I go back or try elsewhere?

A recent heartbreak I had is really getting to me and I’m afraid it’s affecting my productivity. Any advice?

I‘m jealous Ryan Reynolds didn’t have to triple bid his Aviation Gin response to Peloton, or spend 3 weeks doing it, or have a cost consultant and legal department rip it to mediocre bits in the end.

How do you deal with a work crush? Especially when you’re already in a relationship? I love my s/o but always find myself developing little crushes. TBH This is probably a question for therapy.

Agency leaders: If you mistreat your associates i.e. only delegate 'boring' work, in the future, they will do the same to their associates. Worse, if they become clients and mistreat their agencies.

Hey new boss! It sucks that you were underpaid and overworked in order to break through to where you are. Break the cycle.

The Morning Show, that big Jenn Aniston/Steve Carrell show for Apple TV+. I can’t begin to explain how accurate a depiction of what advertising was for women pre 2012....

I was laid off almost 6 months ago. I've gotten to the final round in 3 different interviews and then been passed over for the other candidate. I don't know what's wrong with me or how to fix it.

A junior on my team really doesn’t get it, and I’m about to have to give them a reality check. How do you politely say “you’re only about 5% as good as you think you are?”
