We are talking about Erik Vervroegen who's an ECD at Chiat day and is known to be racist sexist and homophobic. He works on global and at Chiat. Schwartz and Garbutt and HR are all responsible

Hey guys. I'm sorry to be so uninformed but so far I only knew erik reputation for being a really good art director and I heard really good stuff about him (professionally) about his time at TBWA paris. Mind sharing some stories with me, specially you CD1

like

Did you really hear good things? He was known in Paris for being a bully and a crazy brutal cd. Yes he's really good art director but who cares? He's sexist. He's racist. Those are plain facts.

I'm not but I wish I did

Dude. 10 people are telling you that he's sexist and racist why do you need examples. Don't you get it? Specific examples expose the people who witnessed it. I saw it all but I'm not going to disclose my identity just so you can feel better. If you are considering going there with all the warnings that everybody is giving you - honestly you are not very smart and you deserve this place.

Here's the thing. They fired waves of creatives 3 times in 1 year. Among them people that were there for only 2 months. So here's my advice if you don't care about racism and sexism which you should. Care about the instability of this place where you can get fired at any time. Care about the long hours where you can forget any personal time. Care about the stress that will make you have a premature heart attack. But hey if you need a job go for it

No, I agree! Just saying that Erik is a global ecd and doesn’t report to chiat leadership

ACD “you’re" wrong. You have no idea what you’re talking about. Tbwa - Chiat all same shit. Erik works in New York office working with all the creatives.

like

"Is well know" well I didn't and so far not a single example of his behavior was shared. I don't know the guy and couldn't care less. But I wanna know exactly what kind of stuff happened. Just suppose that someone at TBWA is talking with me and I'm a possible target for his behavior.

Erik is global, so technically not the same agency

Whatever CD1, go ahead and check the instagram to see how they mentioned Erik’s real boss

ACD OP is clearly one of the peeps behind the IG account.

I never knew 🐟 complained so much until I joined here. Have a Coke and a smile.

Well I need a job 1st of all

I’m in a pickle. Currently working in multistate tax and I am not a fan. I just accepted a position with KPMG on their methods team (it sounds like interesting work and I’m sick of compliance).

Loved the people I met with for KPMG, but having my manager push so hard for me is making me have second thoughts. Any input?

Junior working with ex v5 senior in M&A. He consistently asks me to turn major deliverables at the worst hours, think 10 pm Friday/Sat/Sun night “tonight” or “by tomorrow morning” even when there is no closing date in sight. When I push back he says my behavior is unacceptable. The times when I have been able to actually meet his expectations and give him the deliverable for review, he will get back to me with comments at least a week later. Sick of these false deadlines.
