Be on the lookout for a CD who just left (was fired from) FCB Chicago. He likes to get blackout drunk and give impromptu “reviews” to people on his team. Which are really just verbal abuse. Report it.

Even sharing an initial or posting this at all is difficult, for a few reasons. This happened to a lot of people on my team and many were unbothered by it and shrugged it off. And I know this guy, and I know he thinks he’s helping or giving some kind of pep talk and he’s actually (I can’t believe I’m saying this) not a bad creative director. But honestly for me and some others, the experience was traumatic. I’m not trying to spread gossip or screw anyone’s job prospects, but in all honestly I want to make sure this doesn’t happen to more young creatives. So with that said, the first initial is G. You may even like this person as a boss. But I sincerely hope he cuts this shit out.

Bottom line is that reviews should be conducted sober and during business hours. This always happened when people were working late at the office, or at team happy hours.

Look, this post was meant as a warning to people about inappropriate behavior. It wasn’t meant to hurt anyone and if it did I’m sorry. I’m sure people will have some mean things to say back about that. But it’s the truth. I chose not to share a name (although I guess in hindsight this is a place where people could guess it). As I stated above, I don’t think the person in question is a bad person. I just think the behavior is harmful since he’s in a position of power. This was truly meant as a watch out for anyone who might experience the same thing.

ACD don't apologize. If you felt his behavior was inappropriate, don't let CD1 bully you into thinking you did something wrong here.

OP, I’m not even in the Chicago market. And I don’t know this person. But it sounds like you’re pretty fragile and are seeking vengeance in a really passive way. Pretty disappointing and immature.

@OP “not trying to spread gossip or ruin anyone’s job prospects”. Oh please. That is EXACTLY what you’re trying to do.

OP, I must know you because I know the person in question. He's not perfect but far from deserving of this. If this is who I think it is, you have no room to talk about how people behave when drinking.

Yeah, some initials would help. I think I might know this person and want to be careful about my contact with him

First initial of first or last name? I think I know who you are referring to but want to be sure...

Is it J.G.????

Everytime I think about work and how I can't even make a strong case for myself for a promotion I get upset. I'm literally pissed that I'm past a year mark and have yet to learn anything new since month 2. I've researched and taught myself as much as I could but many things are "learn on the job" type skills and so nothing. And yes, I've constantly asked throughout this entire year yet nothing has happened only promises that its coming soon or I'll be included in upcoming xyz.
