If the senior doesn’t have time - ask for prior year or similar project(s) so you can use as a guide and help you learn from. However, no matter how much time senior has or not, they should always find time to teach. That’s a mandatory step for growth (for both).

Just find mini projects to do in it. From making a mortgage calculator for your home search, to a PM tool for your wedding etc. I once made an airline management game where you can allocate different types of aircraft to any of 200 or so routes, depending on distance, passenger loading etc (NYC-LON is high capacity, for example), revenue based on fare class and route profitability etc.

How do you know when it's time to leave?

Our agency changed owners earlier this year. Prior to that, we were a boutique agency that emphasized kindness in the culture and I loved it.

Now, they're trying to grow aggressively and are treating us pretty poorly in the process. Workloads are higher and the culture has soured and become very negative.

Are all agencies like this? If I go somewhere else, will it be more of the same?

just my 2 cents for everyone panicking about layoffs, partnerships probably won’t face layoffs the same way tech companies are…

these tech companies stocks are getting wrecked and they have to show their shareholders they can lean down and improve or they’ll lose confidence in them and it’ll get even worse for them. unfortunate but that’s what corporations do🤷‍♂️

Looking for car buying advice 😛. Have a Nissan Altima 2015 with around 70k miles on it. Made this buy shortly out of college and debating purchasing something with more room and a little nicer. Looking to buy with cash, hold 10+ years, and also be family friendly for kids in case needed. Short lists of brands/models welcomed and let me know how your current vehicles are holding up? Male almost 30 years old so something little sporty would be ideal. Budget 30-60k trying to stay under 50k.
