Are there any agencies where you don’t have to work with the same AD / copywriter on every project? I’m not a fan of the partner thing and finding the right one is as hard as finding a longterm mate.

Last week, I've voluntarily put in some overtime to craft an amazing project I am working on. For the love of the project, and because I feel it will be good for my career. While talking with some people a few days later, someone told me: "By doing that, you are helping to maintain a system where hard work and occasional overtime is expected of everyone." It led to an insane lecture about my work ethic. Is that person right? Should I feel guilty about doing that?

Serious note to all those posting on LinkedIn offering to write a recommendation for anyone they know who has been laid off. How about just writing it without having to be asked first. The last thing someone who just lost their job wants to do is ask you for help, even if they need it. If you want to make their day, just go ahead and do it. Oh, and don’t write about them in the past tense, especially if they haven’t changed their employment status on LinkedIn.
