I know a CD ad with a ton of work he barely touched and even forced his name into an award list for. When ppl started passing it around, he pw protected it. His new agency is none the wiser sadly.

This. This is one of my biggest industry pet peeves. Along with the presentation designers who put a full body of work in their book after having designed the presentation... template.

I hired a guy to help me run the creative department on the strength of his book and long tenure at a big legacy agency. it became immediately apparent that he had not been a creative leader there, but a production artist—a bad one. Luckily only freelance, which I cut short. But it was as close to outright fraud as I’ve ever seen in a portfolio. I asked him to do a technique he’d shown in his portfolio, and not only could he not do it, he couldn’t even pretend to know what I was talking about. (By the end I wasn’t convinced that he was even a shitty production artist; I suspect he had kidnapped a shitty production artist and was taking over his life.)

hey all, i’m 3 years into my career. some decent work produced, some awards (mostly student). after getting laid off last fall and many many applications and emails sent, I’ve decided to spend time and money on a creative PR stunt to get my dream agencies’ attention. I’ve decided I don’t want to settle any longer, and I’m ready to make the jump to the elite. so people that have made it to their dream agencies: when did it happen for you, what made it happen, and was it everything you hoped for?

The more pedestrian your intellect, the better fit you are at D Heard of a colleague with an FRM charter being laid off today. Overall excellent person. And you won't believe who they promote year after year.. the character, curiosity and quality of the lifers Don't join this firm if you for a love of learning and to be inspired. Join if you are a middling who wants a good brand to hack ahead in life and rise above your station

Has anyone ever heard of a biglaw junior associate being fired because of their work product. I am a second year who recently transitioned from insurance defense to commercial lit with a big law firm. I’ve been here for a couple months and my work is still getting torn up by partners and senior associates. I’m concerned that my work product is not up to standard. I’m working hard and trying my best but this is a totally new area of law for me and I’m having a hard time catching up

Half my team got laid off and while I’m grateful to have my job still, I feel like I’m drowning in the additional work. All of their responsibilities have been assigned to me, the most junior person on the team. When I brought up that this was a bit much for one person/didn’t think this was sustainable (hinting at the fact that some of the other existing team members should pick some of the laid off peoples’ work), team lead went off on what I’m sure he thought was an inspiring speech about...
