Can we discuss how Accenture has ripped away almost 10 PTO days from Droga? Martin L King Day; President’s Day; Good Friday,; our birthday’s; our 5 Summer Fridays. And did I mention sick days come out…
*Controversial take alert* I love the look/feel, copy, execution, of the new Lululemon work from Droga, but it seems a bit bleak and self-serving for that particular brand. More exclusive than inclusi…
What's a mid level salary like at hot shops like GUT, Droga, or WK? Do they pay the same as a mid level writer role in your Ogilvy, Dentsu, Saatchis?
Is there an agency that does award-winning work and has good work-life balance (not working 8+ hours a day)? The likes of Droga5…
“Unjunk your sleep” is the best use of “junk” I’ve ever seen in a tagline. Kudos, Droga5 creatives.
I’ve heard from quite a few people about how creatives are not happy at Droga and people might want to avoid if they want to be happy and want to have work/life balance. Someone had a break down while…
Anyone here from Droga5? I saw that you’re looking for a copywriter. Any tips on making my application stand out?
What has 2 fingers and has been ghosted by Droga and Martin? This guy! Has that happened to anyone else with these 2 shops after a ton of interviews?
What’s the work/life culture at WKNY vs Droga?
I’m up for a role Droga and not sure if I should take it even if I want to leave the industry? After some time, I’ve come to realization that I don’t really want to work in advertising. But I just go…
Any Droga peeps work on ihop? What's it like?
Droga5 actual job description: 1) Ability to work for long stretches of time. 2) Ability to work more than 40 hours a week. Ouch.
Is Droga making people go back in the office?
Droga5 London. Thoughts?
In the early 2010s, agencies like Wieden, Goodby and Droga seemed extremely prestigious. But now, while these agencies are respectable and desirable places to work, I feel like they don’t hold the sam…
Thoughts on Visa @ droga5?
How is work-life balance at Droga5?
Seniors who took a “lower” title for moving to a bigger, more competitive agencies (like Droga or W+K), was it worth it? Why?
Is Droga5 still as good as it used to be?
This may vary or not have a “formula”, but I’m curious about how you from Droga5 or Wieden got hired, is that a mixing of good work/awards/merit/experience? What’s the process behind? Thanks.
I’m a CW who’s made some fun work in last 4 years, but nothing “world class”. Are my dreams of droga dead? I’m guessing my produced work won’t capture their attention, so I’ll need other ways to show …
Gut or Droga?
Outside of the top tier agencies (WK, Droga, etc), what are some of the best mid tier agencies in NYC?
Not really feeling the Droga5 rebrand.
PSA. Droga5 is not what it used to be but still have good opportunities. People say it is a tough place to work. WK is solid but sometimes also does bad work. Have decent hours. You can use the mag…
I wish I had the confidence of the Art Director Intern that posts: wow, Droga really lost their mojo
Who has the best office location - independent shops? Droga, 72andSunny, Johannes&leonardo, Wieden, Work&Co?
Not directly an advertising question, but I'm curious how this works. When an indie agency is bought out, how do they determine the number? Is there a general rule to follow? Droga sold for $475…
So I know droga is a sweatshop for creative. But what’s it like for strategy? My partner is interviewing for a senior comms role there and I don’t know if he should if he values his life.
Are the benefits at Droga5 any better since Accenture? I heard the health insurance wasn't great.
Droga NYC’s current head of production please? Used to be co-heads now not sure. Has been a minute, appreciate any insight. Thx!

I was due for a promotion but then covid hit, and during the peak of layoffs/furloughs, I was given the run-around that we have agency wide promotion freezes, etc. Over the past month, a handful of people have been promoted. I know everyone's situation is different but I can't help feeling snubbed. How do I know whether they are genuinely trying to promote me and can't, versus them stringing me along for as long as possible? I dont want it to come to having to bring another offer to the table..

Any thoughts on Amazon’s international tax / transfer pricing department? Culture, type of work, wlb, etc?
I think (fingers crossed) that I am about to get a job offer for a management role. It would be a 45 percent pay increase and I honestly might be able to negotiate it to up to 55, but I just don’t feel excited about it. It’s a smaller company then where I am now, but still a decent size and great reputation, but the team is much smaller. I really want to be more excited because I know it’s a good opportunity. Any advice?
Is MLK Day not a holiday for some firms?
When it takes you two weeks of working to catch up from one week of vacation...seems like it should be the other way around ☠️

I was recently let go. When I interview, should I be upfront about this, or should I keep it vague — “looking for new opportunities”? It seems like it will come up when people ask why I’m leaving.

An associate I work with assigned me my first patent application to draft because she knows I’m taking the patent bar soon and I feel like that meme with the dog in lab goggles that says “I have no idea what I’m doing”, but thank you to all the attorneys that give people a chance to try something challenging and outside of their job description, even though it’s intimidating as hell 😬
Self-directed IRAs. So many questions! Have any of you ever tried a self directed IRA? I’m thinking about it in relation to investing in a company (to the tune of 150-200k) or possibly purchasing a vacation property as an investment in a location we’d like to retire (if I did that, could we use it to vacation personally occasionally in the meantime? Even if we needed to pay the IRA for the rental?) Thoughts? Warnings?
