Going on secondment was the best thing I ever did. You’ve got the rest of your life to make money.

Be pro rated down and I still have American loans. However this seems like too good of an opportunity to pass up, will giving up the immediate salary be worth it in the long run? 2nd year MC associate fwiw.

Some people argue that we should do away with the secondment

I have seen people being put on secondment if there is not much work in the current practice. They were not able to come back to the same position after agreed upon term was over.

What is your current practice? Some practices are doing poorly and they are trying to find ways to push people out. Make sure this is not the case in your practice.

Sometimes for these they pay your housing though so if they do you can call the offset of bills based on that savings with new salary. Regardless I think it’s worth it

Don't want to say but my practice is very strong and I'm staffed through the next 7 months and constantly get offers for projects. This secondment is coming from someone I've built a relationship with and we share the same nationality (country of secondment)

Is money your biggest concern?

Which country is it?

I’m venting. But Sometimes I feel like the agency world is one big group project, and the creatives are the members that do all the works while the other teammates talk a lot. Like I just saw a strategist post on LinkedIn about the importance of taking a mental health day, and I totally agree but I can’t help laugh thinking about how ppl would actually react if an art director suddenly took a mental health day and the team’s banners didn’t get done that day.
