Pay day, pay day, oh how I love pay-yay dayyyy
I can never go back to going to office everyday!
For those who moved during the pandemic, and potentially moved away from a big city with lots of job opportunities, where did you move from and to?
I moved during the pandemic from Boston to Central New York. Super thankful that WFH and remote work in general has allowed me move sooner than planned and keep my job/seek new jobs that are remote. Being able to make a big life change and not have to consider adjusting my career outlook and/or salary expectations has been really wonderful.
Which FDD shops have the most toxic individuals/assholic attitude? Trying to avoid these like the plague if I ever hit the job market again.
I’m relatively new to consulting, so I have a question for the old-timers that have done their time. What generally happens at Accenture or in general within consulting when there is a recession? Who are the first to be laid off? What can a Senior analyst do to make themselves “harder” to lay off?
It's Lesbos 💅🏼
Just like my Animal Crossing island 😌
We've transitioned to doing report at bedside with a small report allowed in the nurses room. I love it way more than I thought!

Poll: Generally speaking, how much does your account person/team contribute to any given deck (strat, creative, whatever)? Are they putting in any intro slides or next steps? Trying to decide if I was just really lucky in my last place or unlucky in my current place.
Anyone work at a consultancy? If so whats it like compared to an agency? What are some of the best ones around currently?
Strategy is such a thankess job. My whole team got major praise for a campaign. I wrote the brief and I didn’t even get mentioned. I know I should let it go but I am feeling pretty sad about it 😥
Does anyone have research on CSR efforts that have actually benefited a company’s bottom line? Anything beyond purchase intent, awareness, affinity, favorability, etc?
New to the industry, somewhat fresh out of school.
Currently interviewing for assistant acc exec at Saatchi (work with Toyota) and acc manager Media.Monks (not sure what accounts).
$25k less at Saatchi, but sounds like I’d have some creative input at Saatchi. Only working numbers for accounts at MM (paid, search, programmatic).
Is there any hope for strat/planning if I go with the money at MM?
I always wanted to be a planner but found myself in acc due to job availabilities and needing to pay rent. While a great account person is priceless, it’s just not me - unless I fake it and go against my nature. Now I’m a few years in and generally dislike my job because it’s schmoozing, pencil pushing, and not really producing. How can I make the pívot to strategy? Is a pívot even realistic? Should I just say fuck it and bear with things until going client side someday?
Any books, tips, or tricks that have helped you focus and really take in what you’re reading? I want to read for knowledge and deeper comprehension not just for understanding.
