Are any of the healthcare agencies more creative than the others? Or all about the same?

What type of companies do you think is the best combination of creative projects, good benefits/pay and work life balance? For now my impressions: Tech > boring work, good benefits and work life balance Retail > boring work, worse benefits and good work life balance Start ups > medium boring but more stressful, no job security, more pay, less benefits What else there is? What options? Entertainment? Fashion?

Any (video) editors turned AD or CD here? 6yrs of editor exp, been at the same shop for ~2yrs with no raise/promo. Good people & projects but the paycheck is beginning to sting with healthcare copays, consumer costs, housing going up. Feeling unsure where my career should go from here. Senior editor is the clear next step, but I’ve begun feeling like my career might have more room for growth if I aim for more of a hybrid creative path. Curious if others have made that kind of jump.

Would you take an offer where there’s a lot of red flags about the company, the title is down leveled, but the money is better? For context, it’s not a creative role, I’d be the first woman on the team, there’s no bonus or 401K match, but the salary is $50K more than my current role. But there are so many red flags and the entire process was very chaotic.

I work client side and had a woman in my team just put in her notice because she got an offer from another company for much more than she’s making here. Is $60k for a fully remote mid-level (3-5yrs exp) design position reasonable? If I rehire at the same salary will I get someone who will feel underpaid? It’s a state org so the benefits are amazing - but I don’t want to find myself in a situation where someone feels under valued from day 1. Thoughts, creative fishies?

I moved to NYC a few years ago, and most of the jobs I have found here have been in Healthcare, even tho I have lots of Consumer/CPG experience under my belt.
