Unrelated to advertising but I want to see what people think about this. I believe that a lot of the terrible and inefficient products/industries (think plastic packaging, oil companies, and, probably most relevant and equally most terrible, guns) are about staying relevant at all costs, even if it means stopping progress, sacrificing the earth, and killing children. And it’s not even out of complete greed, but more allowing people to keep their professions and not having to uproot their lives

I'm a Manager who would like to be promoted to Director in the near future. While reflecting on how I've developed in my role with my current company, I've realized that the only development/coaching I've received has been on how to interact with the difficult personalities on our leadership team. I know that messaging is important, but this feels really specific to individual's bad behavior.

Is this common for someone who is looking to move from Manager to Director?

What do you think about going to ad school to become an art director? Is it a must? It looks like most people at big agencies went to an ad school or majored in advertising/art direction. I saw some posts saying they didn’t attend ad school and made it, but that appears to be 10-15 years ago. Would reeeeally love to hear stories of those who didn’t go to ad school and still got into a great agency, and what the journey was like. Please! And thank you.

Those who left, how did you find the right job for yourself and figure out what you wanted to do after the big4? I don’t want to be at the mercy of whatever job happens to appear on my LinkedIn, but I also don’t know what I want to do. The recruiters I talk to just kinda push me to the jobs they need to be filled, and I don’t know enough to tell them what type of jobs I specifically want.
