Q&A with Mike Bentley

As budgets get tighter and agencies become (hopefully) less silo-ed, do you envision account services and strategy merging in any way? Or are the functions they serve too different?

The tendency is , I think , for things to segment and specialize. Strategy has several different flavors ( we could debate the wisdom of this ) and project and program management are nested in a lot of account management groups . This suggests a clear orchestrating role for account management coupled with their understanding of their client and their business. In short , no , I don’t think we should see hybrids . Economically compelling but not good long term .

Was told by HR that the industry norm for a salary review is 18 months. Is this true? With yearly performance reviews would make too much sense...

To the credit card gurus: does it make sense to drop a chase sapphire reserved to the next lower card given my situation? I already have the Freedom Unlimited, left consulting years ago so I don't travel for work, not planning on personal travel either much this upcoming year because of covid, almost all my transactions are on the CSR totaling ~$1k/month, and want to minimize expenses since I'm in school now.

If the big4 has an up or out model, do a lot of senior managers get laid off? Not everyone can be a partner/principle. How long can someone be a partner/principle for?
