Rob reilly leaving mccann. Thoughts?

Did anyone take the survey about going back to the office in September? The thought of having to get on a subway is really stressing me out. I can’t get to the office otherwise. I miss everyone but th…
OPINION: Leadership should’ve taken a bigger pay cut and it should’ve started at 100k. I made 65k not too long ago and 10% less would make a big difference for me at the time.

Ive taken on a new role in integrated production. I'm now responsible for producing all different types of work - some of which I have little experience with. I'm struggling to gather common acceptable budgets for common programs across experiential, film, influencers, etc. Partners never want to give a rate card but it's hard for me to give teams a real expectation for what's possible. Has anyone found (or built) an accurate resource to reference when it comes to production costs! Halp! Thanks
Where did you learn how to best integrate flight/hotel/credit card points? I’m new and confused. I have chase sapphire reserve, but that’s as far as I’ve gotten.
I have a (2-week old) new boss (CPO) who wants to break up my reports and responsibilities into different functions that report up to her.

I have never been in this situation before. What do you all recommend?
Anyone from Bain Toronto open for a chat? Perhaps open to a referral if I’m a good fit! Bain & Company
