AdAge should revoke any A-list awards for agencies that laid people off.

lol, what’s your logic here?


What? How does that make sense? Just because they made great work within the last 12 months means they can’t be hurt by an economic downturn? It’s a business, be real.


Your frustration is completely justified. The same leaders that mismanaged their finances and now have to lay people off are bragging in all agency emails and their own social media about being an A-lister in our business. With no mention of the poor people who are at home not knowing how they’re going to make rent. Maybe adage should have waited on this until people are back to work.


I understand your frustrations. The agencies are thanking “their people” even though they have or will lay 10-20% of them off.
