I’ve worked at some top agencies as a creative but still early in my career. Got an offer at Tiktok. Worried about making the switch, but no agency is hiring right now and I was laid off. Can I go back to agency life when this is all over? Is Tiktok even a respected company given all the suspicions surrounding them?

So what’s the story with all of these very senior diversity and inclusion officers at many of the big advertising agencies? Have they accomplished the hiring of more diverse staff? Or are they just for show? Ours has been here for a few years and there hasn’t been one more African American strategic planner, creative, or account executive hired in that time. Has this position made a difference for people?

Currently working in S&T in a role that is highly analytical, but I think my strength really lies in my creativity- any suggestions for something more creative but still in finance?

Why would anyone take this position? It combines two roles, pays $20/hr... part time.. etc. Unemployment pays you more! also: Creative Circle needs to be phased out.. they rob creatives of their hard earned money.

Does anyone watch Working Moms on Netflix? The woman working in the creative agency has a “PR Specialist” role, yet she comes up with hashtags, visuals, and campaigns. WUT?!

My team has no ACD/CD and no plans on hiring one. I feel like I’m not going to be able to grow without that level of creative leadership and my bosses don’t understand the need. What should I do?

Option 1: a more senior, better paying role but less creative shop —OR —-Option 2: stay put at more creative shop where I’m well respected, have job security, but no immediate opportunities for better title/more money —- I’m 15 years into my career. What would you choose?
