In-House Politics VS. Agency Politics. Discuss.


How long (honestly) will it be before agencies start hiring again? I’m looking to get off this ride.


Some companies just aren’t built to have in-house creative teams. I know because I landed at one.


What % do you guys charge a partner to advertise on social using your handle/ad account? Is a 100% markup fee plus an "agency" like fee for maintenance of 15% too aggressive?

In house copywriter 2-5 years experience, how much to budget for position?

I started my in-housing adventure only a few months ago but I’m already feeling so much momentum and potential in this space versus the vibe I felt agency side, which was constant fear and anxiety.


Any in-house agencies hiring Junior creatives?

How do you do the move from agency to brand? I want to move brand side, but I’m not sure what roles to apply for, and everything that looks good to me, I get insta-rejected for. Any pointers?


Hey what’s people’s experience with performance advertising for brands? Do you come up with multiple ideas for reaching out to new customers?

Hey anyone work in house for a brand? If yes how do you work with the brand team? Is creative a part of the brand team or works along side it? I’d love to hear!


Looking for advice navigating my move in-house. I’ve just gotten hard “no’s” on my hardware requests and have found myself owning a bunch of responsibilities that were not part of what I agreed on.


I’m a producer - interested in working for a brand and getting out of the agency world. Any advice how to find those opportunities and make myself marketable? I’m in a secondary market.


Went from agency to in-house. Does anyone feel like they sold their creative soul for a little more stability?
