Well, the Employee Survey Results presentation certainly cleared everything up and didn’t feel like my non promotion was my fault.
Just heard CD Kathleen is leaving CHI office. Bad creative news on top of Nok, Matt/Jason, Makeda, Mo, et al.
So I was in the office a couple weeks ago and noticed the IT department is on the 22nd floor now. They are right in middle of the account teams. WHY?? Just don’t make any since. We have client t…
Heard that Carter Murray moved to the Bahamas. Shouldn't he stay in the states to help this country to become a more equitable and just place to live and thrive for everyone as a company leader? I…

Trust me, this is better than selling sugar water and insurance. Apply to Area 23 while we’re still hiring—it’s time to make the world a better place. (And no, you don’t need to be NYC-based!) more
@vp teams, what do you all consider too much time off for fto in a year? I know we say as much as we need, but what does that mean? Especially if we’re doing the work we need to be?
Just throwing this out to the FCB fishbowl, but wasn’t Michael F a breath of fresh air during the last episode of Live from Lasker?
If you're going to get a raise, is there any indication it'll happen or does your pay just suddenly go up? For reference, I (a junior cw) have been at Area23 a little over a year and got a gre…
Sorry but Chi leadership is really dropping the ball. Haven't heard from Kelly in over a week. Schools are shut down until April 20, Illinois about to be sheltered in place. Hello??
Do “less desirable” agencies (i.e. Geometry Global, Edelman) pay less than more competitive agencies (i.e. FCB, BBDO)?
Any CREATIVE, AWARD-WINNING healthcare agencies in NYC besides of Area 23? I want to do more than these never-ending launches and boring brochures 😪 If they do Social Impact, Consumer healthcare (OT…
I am tired. I do not know how much longer I can hold my family and the account work together. I am afraid, unsure, sad, and unable to focus on 1 task at a time. If I get fired for my poor performance …
Hey- I know the world has been crazy and some folks have had a hard time with work throughout this pandemic. My agency Area 23 is hiring across all functions, also being NYC-based is not required. I w…
So Health gets full Thursday off and general agency doesn’t? That’s nice. Health works harder than the rest of us, or something?
After the pandemic is over, can we dedicate one day per week, preferably Friday, to WFH? Savings for the agency could be substantial, and the employees will be happier. Thoughts?
@fcb peeps: Who is the head creative at FCB Global? Is it Fred Levron or Susan Credle? Every piece of work that comes out of the agency, Fred immediately posts everywhere as his. But isn’t Susan Credl…
The ADCOLOR presentation was given a tough slot after the Employee Engagement meeting, that turn into a very awkward explanation of how to climb the corporate ladder.
@Tyler Why were you able to close the entire office for a day of reflection, June 5th, but for Juneteenth, which is now an official FCB holiday, employees still have to get approval to take time off?
Is it just me or is it a bigger deal to be asked to work on a day off (ie. Election Day) than over a weekend?
What salary does an Account Supervisor typically make at FCB when they’ve been promoted internally from an AE? Anyone willing to share what their salary bump was?
When will FCBChi have a full agency meeting? We’re four weeks in and Carter’s done two Town Halls. The videos from Kelly are nice but they’re totally one way.
*clears throat* Dear leadership, Please make Election Day a company holiday and possibly provide incentive for people to sign up to be poll workers. A gift card. A VP title. A Get Out of Putting in Yo…
Do we know if there are plans to subsidize WFH costs? I’ve had to purchase office supplies like an actual desk, etc to be able to work efficiently and effective along with cell, WiFi, etc? Thoughts?
Are awards still make or break, and do top shops like Rethink, Cossette, FCB etc. only hire creatives from big shops or other top shops? I’ve been in the biz for 6-7 years working at mostly small/mid-…
Can someone please confirm we can wfh until January if we need to?? Lots of us have leases that are up soon and I'm sick of paying rent for an apartment i'm not living in. Who else is out of s…

Applied for a junior associate position in IB. Got a link for digital interview. Has anyone gone through this process? I have never given an IB interview. How should I prep?
It’s a topic that has been discussed often enough but I need some positive vibes. Since a year I’m applying for jobs (mostly through referrals, sometimes cold). I have been in advanced interview stages but now back at 0 because eventually nothing worked out. I’m obviously down and questioning if I need to get used to a mediocre career satisfaction and if I’m expecting too much. Background: 3 yoe, data science
