Anyone feel like WPP in particular is ruining the advertising industry? The other 100 year old agencies at other holding companies seem to be doing just fine.

What - the merger of AKQA and Grey ? that’s just a cost cutting measure. WPP isn’t better or worse than any of the others. They’re less smarmy since they dumped Sir Martin.

I think WPP under Martin Sorrell was ruining the industry, and now everyone is having to clean it up. It was Sorrell who bought all of these agencies in their prime, stripped them down to the bone, drove off their talent and tried to constantly upsell clients.

It’s pretty simple WPP without Sir Martin is not WPP... that dude is a business genius, for sure he was the only one that actually knew how everything worked

Did you ever work at a WPP company under Sir Martin?

Can’t say I agree.

How so?

@AccountDirector1 You seem to be finding it a little hard to follow....yes, we do understand how they work, which is why we think they are ruining the industry. Make sense? Feel free to disagree with that though, if u think they’re making the industry a better place.

Smart people who know about technology: 🙏🏼 I want to get 11.5-14 inch monitor to add to my (1) laptop and (2) second monitor. I’m worried about the monitor having a high “processor” and slowing down all my programs (including the program I use to login to my office desktop). Can someone point me to a monitor that may work?

60M people need to be vaccinated. Offering them $1000 each would cost this country $60B. Realistically, you can get to half of that population — $30B. One booster shot for 250M people at 80% uptake — $200B. For $30B - $230B, we can end the pandemic in the USA. Worth it? Edited: add in $5M for an MBB to do this math and put it in a PPT for you. And $50M for a big 4 firm to implement, botch, reimplement.

Are there any women in this group who are reduced time in a transactional practice at a big law firm? I’d love to hear if you’re glad you made the switch or not, what has worked, what hasn’t. I’m contemplating moving to 80% now, and maybe 60% after I come back from a mat leave for my 2nd kid next year. FWIW, my practice group leader seems very supportive of whatever I choose and I am not up for any promotions for the foreseeable future.

For those of you who are in-house, how did you get comfortable with needing to be more of a generalist? I know some in-house roles, especially at large companies, are specialized. However, even then it just seems like you’re expected to know about so many different areas (with far less support than at a firm). I’m tired of billable hours, but I really love (& feel more comfortable) being a specialist.
