Don’t think they are based on anything because they rarely happen. Probably just the threat of people leaving so they promise a lofty title.

Yeah nobody really gets bonuses at any agency.

I’ve worked for the agency for almost ten years and love it. Reach out if you have any specific questions!

Thanks going to send a PM

Typically don’t see bonuses until exec levels. What’s the role ? City ?

Yes it looks like cfo of an account. My background is a lot of client finance in consulting orgs so i think I understand the ole but curious as to how it plays into the broader organization. I knew it was a long shot that people would be familiar with that type of role.

Hey AD here! I have this one off spec print ad that ended up not being used in a campaign I was working on. But, I still think it’s very funny if it was you used for a different brand. It needs a headline, if any CW wants take a crack at writing a headline for it, it’s yours. Just dm me and I’ll show it to you and you can decide if you want to write a headline for it.

Product Management - I am somewhat interested in trying to move into product management. I have led internal analytics product development at a prior firm, and have led clients through developing/improving “products” for their teams to use however I have not led “consumer facing” products and my experiences have not been as “formal” as many PM roles ask for. I work in healthcare and would want to stay there. I’m wondering if others have any thoughts on these transitions.

I’ve spent most of my career as a Data Scientist, mostly with 1-2 hours of daily meetings (max). I’m now managing a dev / analytics project and I’ve been in calls for 4-5 hours straight this entire week, and I just have to lie down for 30 min. Idk if this is normal or if people just don’t get exhausted but man I have a rough career ahead of me 💀
