Does anyone really think the role of CCO, GCD, CD and even ACD is necessary anymore? How about just people that do actual work collaborating and doing great work? Take those inflated positions and hire more creatives that do work or pay the ones who do it more money. In my experience, eliminating those positions never made the work suffer. In fact it’s a more streamlined process.

Besides hiring a new actually talented creative director, how have earned PR peeps explained “mediability” to creatives? I feel like mine keeps giving us the most mediocre ideas then gets super defensive when we try to explain why they won’t work.

I’m currently doing a CD role. Clients are requesting me to appear in management meetings. I asked the ECD for an offical title. He said he can’t give it to me, with no justification. What do I do?

Interviewing at a tech comp. Role is lateral, but title is “Principal”. Honestly never heard of this title before as my career is on the agency side. Is this title a resume killer as currently a CD?

Me and my SO make $320k, we have a child with special needs and we live in expensive Boston suburb, because of the public school system. We’ve been renting 2BDR 1500 sq feet for the past 6 years, our current rent is $3100, and our lease expires in the end of June. Landlord wants to know if we plan to renew for the same price. We can potentially look into buying kinda fixer-upper, ask for lower price or move out into bigger house. Thoughts?

A ban on big business’ efforts to merge with or acquire distressed small businesses will help protect markets from corporate control, but alone it won’t be enough. Other necessary steps include bolstering the small business-oriented Paycheck Protection Program and freezing utility payments. And, of course, small businesses will still have the option of combining to survive this crisis—the merger moratorium would apply only to those giant businesses receiving money through a federal institution.
