Anyone currently working on Vanguard at Huge? How’s the account? Overall how’s career development at Huge? Is it as easy to switch to product after a few project successes for senior PMs as they say?

What do you mean switch to product? Like you want to PM a more product-focused account or you want to be a product manager? I don’t work on vanguard or know much about the account but I generally like working at huge. I’ve had decent promotions in my time here and like the culture.

Vanguard as a client isn’t bad. And the Huge team wasn’t as bad as others (can’t speak for the team now...it’s been a while). Career development at Huge is a toss-up—good for some, bad for others. If you’re coming in as a pm, you will likely get more visibility into opportunities (compared to other more niche disciplines), so in that way it might be easier for you to establish the right connections to make a transition. Can’t speak for the product team—it was strong at one point, but my understanding is that there has been a bit of turnover (as has been the case at the agency over all).

I know some people there who like it a lot and their HOP has been at the agency for a while. Not sure about Vanguard specifically but know it’s a great culture (NYC).

Thanks all!

Why do I feel so guilty about wanting to take another offer and leaving my team? I like my current teammates just HATE the client and project.

I want to take the money but I feel like I’m still learning leaderships skills and can see the potential for beefing out the management portion of my resume. What would you do? (Offer 50% more)

So I left B4 risk assurance because I found the work a drag and moved to a boutique place where I was hoping to get a better experience or shape my career the way I want. However, this place isn’t what I was expecting and the project I’m on requires deadly hours and is staff aug. I’m looking to do this for a year and go back to b4 (as I like being in a bubble) but a different service line. How possible is this?

Has anyone successfully caught an associate falsifying time? I initially became suspicious because the amount of office chit chat I’ve witnessed and nature of social media postings (frequent bar trips midweek) wasn’t adding up with his alleged hours billed. I pulled his time and it’s hard to say if it’s falsified or if he’s just incompetent - and I don’t want to go to my other partners if I’m not 100% sure. But it’s hard to believe he honestly spent .8 reviewing a one page order.
