What made you want to consider account? Your advantage could be understanding how to turn client feedback into next steps for creative teams.

That’s cool, was just genuinely curious because I see so many people asking for advice to go from account to creative. Feel free to dm with more questions, I was on the account side before strategy so happy to answer any questions you’ve got.

The twitter CEO’s base salary is $1million (plus bonus RSUs upto 150% of that). The google CFO’s base is $1million (plus some RSUs I’m sure) and here I am thinking a 3-4th year EY Partner or 1-2nd year MBB partner would probably make that much base? But making partner (as hard as it is) has to be much easier than being a C level exec in tech? What am I missing here :/
