This may be the most impactful spot Ive ever seen. Setting aside the politics of gun control for just a moment, I’m curious what people think of the approach:
I see a lot of people complain about how shitty the industry is (and it's well deserved). But let's hear from those who love their job. Tell us why you're happy in advertising.
Got fired on Friday. Woke up this morning and started getting ready for work...oh yeah.
I picked the wrong week to download LinkedIn.
When will people stop calling it the coronavirus. The virus is not called coronavirus... there are many other strains of coronaviruses besides Covid-19. That is all. Kthx
AD Agencies: It's mental health day! Be good to your mind, body and soul! Also AD Agencies: Please bill 100 hours this week, you can go to therapy at 1am
Have put in lots of late nights and sold two relatively large campaigns/productions. 6 months into a new job and requesting vacay for the first time. What’s the longest acceptable amount of time to request off for next month?
People at my new agency always post their flex hours, even if they’re stepping away during lunch. Are they good communicators, or is this indicative of a company culture that expects us to always be “on”? My gut feels off about this, and I’ve only been here for two months.
My agency had layoffs & told an AS that they “support” him changing his own title to Account Director for job searching purposes. He’s been an AS for 3yrs here+5yrs prev job. Should I say something??
For anyone who’s started at a company fully remote (Covid or otherwise)… when ramping into your new role, what did you do to feel more connected to your team/sales dept? I’m finding that I have questions that I don’t know how or whom to ask, I don’t know who anyone is and my manager can be MIA. This is my first fully remote role and it’s thrown me for a bit of a loop
My boss has zero leverage in the company, and therefore creative always goes to shit because someone in another department thinks they're far better placed to make creative calls, and my boss can't do anything about it to defend the work. It's taking a toll on the work, team's mental health, and overall morale. The company values are no longer aligned to my own, and it's no longer the job I was sold in on during the interview process. What do I do?
Is Cannes officially dead as a measuring stick for our industry? Hearing a lotttt more horror stories about scam work / vote trading / work that aired once in Kazakhstan winning super high level lions this year. Heard similar stuff in 2019. The jadedness seems to be growing.
Did the Grand Prix winning Dove campaign commission those Covid portraits or did they already exist?
Hi 🐠 Looking for agency recommendations on the west coast that specialize in email but also flex in other digital channels. Please and thank you!
What salary should I expect for SC position at EY, FS, MCOL? Currently at non big 4. Is it worth moving to big 4 for less than a 20% pay increase for the experience?
I recently found out I’m pregnant and am going to be due around Christmas time. I typically take PTO for the last two weeks of the years anyways because it only ends up being like 6 days for 2 weeks because of all the holidays. If I have the twins a little early (which is very likely) but during my PTO time, do you think they would be okay with the maternity leave starting 1/1 instead of when the babies are born? Or is it very strict on when it starts?
FTM, husband is in finance and his hours are nuts. Next year he’ll probably be traveling again. His company makes him drop everything for a live deal. Any other fulltime working moms in similar sitch (partner with insane hours/travel schedule)? I feel like he’ll be stuck in the office so many late nights or on the road and I’ll be stuck taking on majority of childcare at nigh, in addition to working. Would love to hear how others navigated… do I need to find a job in industry with better hours?
What do you read to feel inspired? Would love recommendations of blogs, newsletters, podcasts. I’m listening to How I Build This but would love to diversify!
Anyone heard of Pactum?
Anyone have insights into working for Cisco? Got a decent offer to move over there. It’s management level from deloitte to similar level there. About 20% pay increase, plus WFH and 25% max travel.
I’ve been lucky enough to go to Europe a few times as a kid and I want my fiancé and I to go there on our honeymoon. We’ll be going 5+ months after the wedding and I want to go to a few different countries and I am curious if anyone has used a travel agent? We never used them growing up and I don’t like structured tours or all inclusive type vacations but it would be helpful for booking flights or specific towns to stay in. Has anyone just done it on their own or did you find the agent helpful?

Joining S&A at consultant level. What is a typical strategy engagement like? Will there be a methodology for most things we do? I’m coming from a smaller firm where we had to research/make it up as we went every single time. Perhaps a balance of both? I’m so excited and kinda nervous.

How do you track your progress towards goals? I usually write down my reflections and goals in the notes app, but inevitably (after 1-2 months) i break my habit and fall off the wagon. I’m wondering if people have suggestions on how they stay on track
