AKQA 2, saying that leadership has issues, is a very PC way to describe the situation. And yes, I’m leaving as soon as I can relocate with my family. OP It was (and still is) a toxic and highly political environment, with most of the work being numbing production, also very cliquey in terms of teams and assigning accounts.

Honestly AKQA 1, I don’t really understand that mindset. Sounds like you should be the one leaving? We actually won a lot of business last year and yes have a lot of holes to fill. Leadership has a lot of issues, but we’re doing good work with good people. Worth considering.

AKQA1 & 2 Why did so many people quit last year?

Strategists: How many hours do you typically work? I work 8-9hrs/day pretty consistently, but the creatives work much longer hours. Can’t tell if it’s my agency, my work efficiency, etc.

Is it worth it to leave a Deloitte Analyst role (just hit 1 year at Deloitte) for an Analyst role at Levi’s digital product team (building out an AI tool) for a 25% pay bump?

I’m not sure if it’s too early to leave Deloitte/consulting for a lateral move, but I don’t enjoy the Deloitte culture/feel like I have no impact. I originally applied for a Senior Analyst role at Levi’s though and they bumped it down to Analyst bc of YOE.

Chase you guys are going to lose your loyal wealthy customers who are temporarily strapped for cash by doing this.

When sending a cold email to a recruiter, should you include a reason why you’re interested in the agency? Or keep it short and sweet with your book, resume and what you’re looking for?

Do you think $300 per hour mentoring session is expensive (teaching me copywriting)? This new mentor of mine has written some of the most famous ads in the past 30 years. 🤔

What’s your take on a job listing that states “From $xx,xxx”

The particular job I’m looking at has this on the listing and I’m curious as to what their budget actually is. Do I assume a range?

They’re seeking someone with 5-8 years experience. I have the latter (8 almost 9)

How would I approach this when asked without pricing myself out of the position? Especially if they’re not willing to be upfront (assuming here) how much they’d want to offer me in particular.
