As junior struggling to get a job, I see my classmates get jobs at Wieden and Droga while I can barely get anyone to speak to me and I know it’s bad but I can’t help but wonder where I went wrong.
Droga who? Wieden what? I wanna work at Ryan’s agency...just as soon as I figure out what it’s really called. Just one hit after another. Literally. more

Last week, Wieden won McDonald’s. This week, they win an Emmy for “Dream Crazy”. There’s ad agencies and then there’s WK, killing it on all fronts.
So who won the McDonald’s biz? Like legit, steady work. Chiat LA? Wieden NY? Who officially killed Unlimited? And how does Wieden manage the “we also have KFC” thing?

Wieden+Kennedy please learn what a frequency cap is and stop serving me Ford commercials on Hulu.
Only an assumption, but I’m assuming there’s a team out there at Wieden right now grinding out an absolutely epic tribute to Mamba. We all know it will be nothing short of chilling and just.
Aside from the obvious financial factor, hypothetically speaking, would it really make a difference if Wieden lost Nike at this point given they do good work on just about every account they touch?
Does anyone know where Wieden+Kennedy posts jobs? Am I just missing it? 😖 I saw they have a general career opportunities email too...any tips??
Did Wieden get the big McDonald’s brand project or not? Adweek says yes but adage says still between them and TBWA?

I need some advice on my next steps after being laid off. It’s a bit complicated but for 5 month out of this past year I was forced to give up my billable hours in order to help “load balance” our team. I went from billing 100% to 58% (safe zone). Billable hours were given to other team members who didn’t have work. This was designed to help average out hours to prevent layoffs. I agreed to do this but felt it was unethical and would affect my performance review. How would you approach HR?
