As the only woman on a production surrounded by 5 male creatives, 2 male producers, I’ve been struggling to get myself heard. My opinions and feedback have been so different from everyone else’s. Ironically, my clients are a team of women too. Deep in my gut, I know they’d want what I am asking for. But how do I push for not just what I want, but what I think the client wants.

Hi! I have two offers and I’m not sure what to do. One is with a small firm that serves as outside counsel to medical practices (leasing, employment issues and acquisitions are primary work load) and the other is in-house for a pharmaceutical company (managing outside counsel, vendor contracts, privacy). The firm pays much better (1800 hours, flexible wfh) but I feel like the experience in house would go further in becoming a GC down the road. Please help!

I started working in a agency two months ago, and I have two very big projects running simultaneously. My Creative Director left for paternity leave, and left me with all the work, facing the client, going to shootings, editing. I've been working 15 days straight, no weekends. The agency hasn't given me any back up/someone I can team up with to do the job. Is this normal? I'm used to have a partner, a copywriter or another creative working alongside. Keep in mind that I'm mid-level.

I am leaving my firm and my pay structure has been that I get paid a percentage of what I bill and I only get paid when the client pays. My firm isn’t great about collecting from clients so I have a pretty high outstanding balance. In my notice, I asked that the balance be paid by last day. Today, I learned that they won’t be doing that will continue paying me as the clients pay their bills. Do I have any options or do I just have to wait?
