Anecdotally—just going by posts Im seeing here and twitter, linked in etc—I think this really might be the year the industry starts generally considering awards to be…pick your word…. bullshit/obsolete/useless/paid for/ not worth it/jacked up/a cash grab…like actual younger creatives seem to be seeing it. And theyre the prime audience for awards as a business.

The pandemic has reset our priorities. Hard to get yourself to care about an award when something like that happens.

I think thats true. Aka, take the prospect of GOING to Cannes and its big sexy hobnob boat parties out of it, you see theres not much actually to it.

Imagine changing one of the shows to be strictly senior creatives as judges. Strictly the people coming up with the ideas, not balancing the SOW or network priorities. Imagine how that would change things.

Totally, I always wonder how they get around the idea of recusals and conflicts of interest for the judges, since its all the same people (the ones “qualified” to judge and the ones submitting the most—not to mention the ones winning). That circle is getting so small. What do you think would happen?

Caring about advertising awards is cheugy AF

Forget Cannes, One Show, NY Festivals, DA&D, Addy's, etc. they're all old hat. If I could get a campaign to EGOT in a year I'd be content. Nobel Peace Prize, Pulitzer Prize, Turing Award, anything that has more relevant cultural value than an advertising award.

My manager is a woman, and she is always commenting on how I look in front of everyone - and it just gets so weird. Ex: on Zoom calls with everyone, she’ll call attention to my outfit, or to my extensions, or to my make up when it REALLY ISNT THAT BAD! Plus we Zoom with all other guys so it’s like UGH stop making it weird. And it’s never a straight forward compliment - it’ll be like “Hey arent you cold in that shirt?” *attention is automatically on my shirt”.CONT.

1st year manager at b4 between staying or zs (associate consult.) Zs : lower title but higher salary and salary growth. Unsure of avg time to partner. more strategic work than at b4 Big4: 8+ years to partner on avg from where I am, good network within the firm, good wlb Both would be “new roles” I’m moving internally. From what I can tell I don’t know how much zs will help exit ops outside of pharm. Option 3:wait and try mbb (I had final round recently, offer to try again in ~5-6 months)

Advice on dealing w/ difficult mgr? Specifically, she pushes team hard to get things to her review. Mgr doesn’t look at for 10-14days, then sends review comments and asks for updates by EOD/tmrw. Also not uncommon for her to interrogate team members about time they have charged, despite detailed time descriptions and hours being reasonable/in budget. Been 8 months working w her. I get anxious b4 mtgs w her. I have been interviewing. Unreasonable to ask counselor to roll off these engagements?

Hope all of you who are still searching get to experience this someday, and sooner rather than later. It can be done!

I make $132k~ base+bonus before tax at a boutique in a T2/LCOL city (Atlanta, Houston, Salt Lake City). Good benefits, excellent culture and wlb.
