Personally, I find pivot table harder to manipulate and make it look nice.

Pivot tables are for quick analysis. Formulated cells are for nice looking models.

They're also good for reconfiguring quick views when the client doesn't know what they want to see in advance, other than not what you're showing them.

I love formulated cells

Pivots are pretty good for re-arranging a data set - tabular mode

I’m on Chapter 21 of Becoming where Michelle Obama states people pay more attention to her clothes than her actual words. I can relate to this on a smaller scale. My former manager in 2019 would poke fun at my hair color (I’m going grey and love Overtone) rather than ever give me feedback on my job performance. I finally confronted him and told him I’m not sensitive but it was “getting old.” Can anyone else share a similar circumstance?

Hi everyone! Hoping to get your advice. I’ve been working at an ad agency for 4 years doing digital strat. Couple weeks ago I got an offer from a GR + Comms firm looking to expand their digital practice (GR not a typo, my background is in politics and I took time off recently to work this cycle.) I’ve worked WITH comms before but never technically done it, just brand strategy. Has anyone had experience with a similar transition, or any advice you can share to help me succeed? thank you! ❤️
