Lucky Generals and Highdive Advertising have won the USA Today Admeter 3 of the last 4 years.
In the year they didn’t win, Lucky Generals got 2nd. 👀👀👀
Anyone know what it's like at Lucky Generals NY office? I only know the work the London office is producing.
Thoughts on Lucky Generals? US and UK
How much should a senior media manager / senior paid search specialist make at an agency? Dentsu agencies for example
So I put in my two weeks for the first time in my career. I have three days left and am still being asked to deliver decks, give presentations and kick off projects. Is this normal? I feel like I should be transitioning this work and focus on closing out projects? Or is this just how it goes.. trying to get everything out me until the last second?
Y’all ever stop and think for a sec how weird it is that we fight tooth and nail to make commercials that the average person doesn’t even want to watch?
I’ve seen a number of posts on LinkedIn lately from recruiters who are complaining about being ghosted. I’ll let that sink in. Laid off recruiters, seeking work, are complaining about the terrible way they are treated after starting the interview process. THE IRONY.
New to the agency and my AD partner (senior, male) is both condescending and flirtatious with me. I can deal when working together privately, but he's undermining me in meetings. 😒
Anyone successfully work full-time in agency while doing some freelance work??? Did you get it approved by your job, how did you find clients?
TFW a "senior copywriter" writes "your" instead of "you're". Proper usage: Get your shit together or you're fired.
How is Publicis NA at the moment? Specifically the NYC office? Any intel on the Citi team / work?
Is it bad to go into an interview with notes?
I have a one pager of points/questions I'd like to hit on, but I don't want to look over the top.
PreRoll : has anyone ever actually refrained from skipping an ad in 6 seconds? I haven’t. All I do is stare at the bottom right hand corner like a gamer waiting to take my shot. Why do advertisers waste such a colossal amount of €€€?
Anyone else think unlimited vacation is a scam?
Serious question: why do people in the NE still think smoking is cool? I've worked in agencies all over the country and the amount of smokers in NYC (most of whom are originally from the NE) is unreal
Seven decks for one meeting. Seems about right.
Horror stories about the best of the best?
What’s the Finance team like at your agency? Do you know them - do they mix with creatives/rest of the agency? Do you find them to be helpful, knowledgable, quick to respond? And does the CFO/Head of Finance really have a seat at the (board) table?
Am I behind if I don't know tableau/SQL/R etc? I'm pretty strong with excel, but that's about it. How did you guys learn other skills? I'm not really given the opportunity at my current agency.
Also, how many times do you receive an “urgent request” before the client goes on vacation? Here’s this important stuff I need done, but won’t be around to answer questions until 2 days before due.
Anyone have luck walking in to an AD and buying on the first shot with no purchase history/previous relationship? In the market for a Batman GMT-II and I’ve read all the horror stories online. Will probably end up going through a family connected AD, but curious about folks experiences.
I have an art director that keeps editing and sometimes even deleting my copy without my consent. I brought it up to the CD and now he has agreed to go over things with me first. The only problem is that our team relationship has soured and become even more toxic. What would you guys do in this situation?
I’m thinking about making a lateral move from M&A to Fintech because M&A keeps me glued to the computer all day (and night). What’s the day to day like as a 3rd year fintech associate? What’s the WLB like? Will fintech practice groups hire me on as a third year even though I have no experience in that field? Or will they bump me down a year?
Does anyone know what is the base pay range & TC for Business Administrators for Microsoft?

Just wanted to add some positivity to this app. Some of the students in our art club at school drew Tim Burton style self-portraits and they are AMAZING!!! I want them to make me one 💗
With only one year of consulting experience, what portion of my resume should this take up (1 year out of undergrad, lots of internship experience)
How's job security, work life balance, work pressure, work environment & Salesforce testing projects at Brillio?
why is it so hard to find out which mayoral candidate is with which political party? I can’t seem to find a list that has the party info.
Looking at a passive business ownership opportunity in another state, tips on ensuring the business is legitimate? I have reviewed P&L , BS and checked on LLC existence so far.
I’m currently on a break after finishing my ad school. I want to completely turn off copywriting mode and write stuff for fun (might eventually impact my copywriting skills). Where do I start?
Has anyone left education and is happier now? This year more than any other year has made me consider leaving education. I have only ever worked at the school I am at. I would like to try to work somewhere else before I decide to leave education. If you have left, what do you do now?
I'm at a career juncture and have decided on a career in anti-money laundering as my new path. I'm also highly interested in additional education to further my career and am eyeing graduate school. Which is best? A law degree or a master's in international relations? Those are where my interests lie. I keep reading that JDs are valued in compliance but am wondering if a different graduate program is better for my goals. I already plan to obtain the CAMS certification. Thank you!
I work for a Publicis agency, and they have an annual seminar called “efficacy for women”. And another one about efficacy for minorities. I have a huge fucking problem (cont’d)
May i know once we accept offer in PWC how many days it will take for background verification to complete and they have asked only current company's documents so does PWC ask only current company's offer?
