I’m a first-year corporate associate planning on leaving in Sept. for a 2-year MBA. The idea when I first registered for the MBA was obviously to move away from BigLaw, but I’m not opposed to coming back to the firm.

How do I go about breaking the news that I’m leaving in a way that doesn’t burn bridges or make partners upset? I’m still a few months out so idk if it makes sense to tell them now. But I also already know for certain that I’m leaving, so I’m worried that sitting on it is worse.

I just listened to an interview of a creative director recount their path towards copywriting at a famous ad agency. It could not have been a more textbook case of failing upwards as a white man.

It would seem the only thing you need to make it as an advertising creative is to have lots of not particularly original ideas. Practically every other skill is unnecessary. If you’re a white man.

That this level of mediocrity passes for talent explains why so many agency briefs are so lame.

I love what I do and where I work - I’ve grown a great network/ reputation throughout the entire company, but it’s getting to that point in my life where we want to build a family. My company offers zero paid leave and has confirmed that policy will stay in place. Not to mention we cannot accumulate PTO and most only get 2-3 weeks off a year AND the company blocked FMLA because it’s owned and operated on tribal land. I’m just not sure if it’s worth seeking new opportunities or sticking it out?
