What personality type are you? What gets you excited about your job? If diversity in work is important I would consider going client side. You HAVE to be ok with doing the same thing for the same brand every day. It sounds marginal but it’s actual what will make you quit faster than anything else and come back agency side. Also note, your typical raise will be 2% every year. Most corporate jobs do not exceed 3% for top performers so in the long run you will make less. Client side can be a great gig but I’ve found that certain people are miserable once they get there. As far as experience and the title. You are a little lite on experience but as long as you have the basics and have mastered the tools you should be fine.

At what point did you decide to quit your job to focus all your efforts on your startup? Was it before revenue? Before funding? I'm about a month into working on my startup, and it's all I want to do. I love having a guaranteed salary and healthcare, but I dread doing any client work. I'm not planning on leaving anytime soon (still have nothing to show on the startup) but I'd like to hear what people think about the transition.

Senior product consultant here but I am looking to jump over full-time to my client. I have signed a contract that basically says I can’t work for my clients. And my current client has signed a contract that says they can’t hire consultants. But I’m going to ask my CEO if we can waive the contracts we signed. What advice do you have? Some context: I have a great relationship both with my current employer and my client. My client is the biggest account my employer has. Wish me luck!

I really like my firm and team, but the firm pays below market for the work that we do, wlb is crap like everywhere else. I am interviewing with firms that would pay more, e.g., T2 small and large.

I really vibe with my team, and I wonder if I can keep an offer or two handy to extort from hr comp match. Is it a good idea? Will it affect my relationship with the MD (salaried)?

Seeking some guidance. If you have a client who has told you your firm is going to lose a contract, but they really like you and want to keep you on by telling the new firm they are bringing in to hire you so you can continue on with your work on the account, do you flag for your manager? Especially if you have no interest in leaving your firm. Also, your firm has already had it alluded to them by the client they will be losing the contract. Clearly, a very awkward situation.
