This video for Sunday lawn products uses nearly every authenticity vibe trick in the book. I feel like the VO/random-actor/stock bit was fun but unnecessary. Thoughts? https://youtu.be/PDRo2gwaR1k
If I had a nickel for every time I heard "We are the industry leader..." in a vendor meeting, I would be retired at the age of 25.
Imposter syndrome is so damn real (and sad). 75% of the time when I am presenting, talking through, responding etc work or thoughts I feel I am “so off, this isn’t right”. Then all it takes is (cont.)
How the hell did Toon Blast sign on Ryan Reynolds as talent? Is he partial owner or get back end? Seems so random.
last night, i realized there are only 4 POC on my team.... and there’s at least 40-50 creatives. how sad.
Has a string of talent departures ever changed things at your agency? Like does leadership even notice or care to address why talent is leaving? Especially at a small shop, each leave hurts morale
I know it’s a virtual meeting and we aren’t really abiding by all the office norms, but maybe don’t be laying in bed,under the covers, with your head on a pillow, while taking a video call...?
Interested in doing voiceover work. I know I will need to create a demo so any advice or reccos in best practice would be appreciated!
What do agencies value more when looking for creatives? high end broadcast work? Buzz generating social plays? Everything?
Which is the most important to you for staying longer then 2 years in an agency . 1) More Money 2) Bigger Title 3) creative freedom (boss allows you freedom to play) 4) team mates and bonding
I know this here is a fishbowl, but what’s your current drink? It’s Friday evening after all. The start of a calm and easy working weekend for some. Cheers!
I’ve heard mixed reviews about a place I’m interviewing at. (Toxic environnement, bad leadership that overworks and drives talent away.) How do I ask them about it in an elegant way?
Anyone work at Spectrum/Charter communication as a senior Internal Auditor? Can you please share your experience?
Just imagine if your bonus in PA was a % of your total hours charged at market rate... can only dream.
Fish fam, need help! I work for a boutique consulting firm which isn’t doing well & we’re having layoffs soon. I knew we weren’t doing great, but this came suddenly. I’m shocked but need to act quick: 1) What do I need to ask the HR and negotiate for in my 1 on 1? 2) Who’s hiring H1B holders right now (strategy and ops consulting experience)? Would appreciate referrals! 3) How can I maintain access to fishbowl (it’s currently tied to work email)? Thank you so much!!
Applying for a big 4 international intern experience... any advice on what to include in my essay?
Company I haven't started with yet (start date = 1week from now) reached out today. Asked if I'm comfortable to do int. travel to India 2-3 weeks at a time for a project. How to handle this? 🤯
looking for advice: are professional resume reviewers worth the $ (for a MBB ready resume). If yes, please suggest good ones.
Just curious: of MBB, have heard that BCG is a more collegiate and supportive consulting environment, McKinsey more of a cut-throat/you’re-on-your-own grind. Accurate?
I had a informational interview with an associate at an Investment Bank. Complete hardo, was asking me questions like how many haircuts are done a year etc. He also asked if I would choose a random company, do a model, and walk him through my assumptions. I’m going to include an operating 3-statement model, leading into a DCF and comps (companies and transactions). Do you think I need to do a sample M&A model or sample LBO for this company? I’ve never heard of someone asking for this lol
Just interviewed, 3 were great and one terrible mostly because the interviewers questions were vague and confusing. Pretty sure I bombed the 4th interview given the guys part given the demeanour. Does one bad interview out of a group interview mean a lot?
Hi Eric thanks for taking the time. What’s your take on getting an MBA in consulting? Most of my peers have gone to grad school but I’m not sure if I should pursue it now in my mid-late 20s.
