Anyone (or know anyone) with experience at GMMB in the creative department (as opposed to PR, etc.)? I’m interviewing there and have read some troubling reviews on Glassdoor, especially around workload and burnout for non-senior staff. Given its size, I want to investigate whether that is company-wide or in certain departments.

For context, I’d be mid-level working with the west coast teams, so focus would be on causes and initiatives rather than politics.

Thanks in advance.

I’m interviewing with an agency that shares a client that I worked on at my prior agency that I left 2-3m ago. If my non-compete from that agency has the language “Employee shall not directly or indirectly solicit on Employee’s own behalf or own behalf of any other person, firm, or corporation, services similar to those provided while employed by Employer from any client of the Employer…” that doesn’t preclude me by being hired by this other agency…just from working on that shared client, right?

Thoughts on mentioning poker as a side hustle in an interview? I have a 5-month resume gap in which I played poker professionally to pay the bills while applying to other jobs. If they ask about the resume gap, should I even mention it?

I feel like it's one of those things that could be a big differentiator if the recruiter is open-minded. But some people (understandably) view poker as pure gambling rather than an exercise in probability/game theory.

Am I supposed to use this 4M only to calculate spend, ROAS, etc., but can actually have unlimited allocated impressions? Thank you!

Been interviewing a couple of people for a Jr/Mid role and have been coming across quite a few who proactively position themselves as just “Creatives” who don’t want to get involved in actually crafting the work. Not sure how everyone else feels but to me, your first few years in the industry should be about mastering your craft as much as humanly possible. You just don’t have the experience to critique ideas properly before you’ve learnt how to write and design a good one on your own 🫠
