Strategy is about who’s leading it and not the agency. Find the good one and you will be fine.

Hard to say for "best." I've heard good things about WK, Droga, BBDO and 180LA, but some of the more pure digital shops are strong too

Strategy is subjective. It depends on what type you believe you are. Also, what role do you want to play in the process?

Depends on if you are in the creative brief business, or strategic solutions and consulting business...

I like our planning department a lot

What about top strategy shops in LA?

Hey Allie! I referred a friend to contact you recently but they haven’t heard from you yet

@SS1 - I thought I went thru all my LinkedIn messages, but I’ll double check!

Allie, a friend had the same problem a few weeks ago after I told her you were looking for freelance strategy help. She sent a message, no response.

At SS1 & PS1, I’ve looked thru my messages several times and I don’t know who you’re referring to, I’ve responded to everyone that referenced fishbowl or being referred by a friend. Feel free to message me with the individual’s name or maybe recheck with them?

@AZ they may have emailed you in the last week or two

You CAN be that leader that people want to work with. 1st, self assessment is required. Be honest: As a leader,have you engaged in/accepted Attribution Bias with a dash of gender &/or race bias? (See the pic) This is something we all need to be aware of as we lead our teams, provide performance feedback, & model the behaviors we'd like to see more of on our teams. Be on the lookout for Attribution Bias in yourself & on your team. It's a hindrance to creating a high-performing, inclusive culture.

It's sad to see people with 2-3 years of experience getting paid more than you when u have double the experience. 😄 Best part is they are still complaining of getting less. Well I guess you should never settle. New gen is giving a hard time to the experienced folks. I think this is the high time to upgrade your skills. Come out of your comfort zone and start looking for new opportunities. I think this is the best time to switch if u haven't already in quite some time. Thoughts 💭 ???
