It’s rather difficult but not impossible. You’ll need a strong book and some patience, the market is oversaturated. There’re just five agencies that produce good work, the rest of them are a career suicide — you won’t make anything decent in years. If you’ve been working at W+K, BBDO, Droga, etc, and have awards — you’ll find something. If not, it will be a gamble — there’re lots of amazing creatives here who’ve been struggling to find a job and are forced to freelance.

Deloitte 🐠 and/or recruiters. I received a verbal offer of 100k, 5k sign on today and I’m really disappointed because my current comp for the same role is 103.5k. I’ve already tried to push back and the recruiter told me they cannot offer more. I was really excited about this opportunity but idk if I can take a base pay cut on top of losing out ~8k on stock awards and 401k matching. Any advice? Should I try to negotiate again or decline offer?

Curious what people think about negotiating comp in the current environment. Many qualified candidates, fewer roles to go around etc. What choice do I have? Currently interviewing, good role and environment, but they are seriously low-balling.

He recently moved to NYC (where I live and work too) and we have been officially dating for about 9 months.

We quarantined together for 6 weeks and it was great, only after that did we start disagreeing more regularly.... ctd..
