Yes, I do. But mine is a different kind of company, not agency. We have non comms revenue streams.

I was given 4 WPP stocks a year back when they still granted them to employees, but between the mandatory hold period and the fact that WPP's stock price just hasn't been performing as well as it did when they were initially granted (late 2000s), I've only been able to cash out 4 stocks once in the course of 12 years of employment. I understand that there's more flexibility with ESPP class stock, but I wouldn't throw my money at it.

Thank you!

I’m wondering from those who have moved from account to strategy how you’ve liked it and what were your motivations, pros and cons of the jump and what you think about the trajectory of your career and salary now. The head of strategy at my agency recently said I could be on her team and I’m extremely intrigued but surprised as I just always thought I’d be on the account side since I do so well there.

I am in the process of negotiating an offer for a new job. At my current job, bonuses will be paid out on august 20th. The bonus is sizable so I would like to stay long enough to obtain it. Ideally, I would wait until the bonus hits my account before I put in my 2 weeks. If the new job wants me to start sooner than august 20th, is it acceptable to say that I want to stay because of the bonus, or should I give a different reason? Is it a bad look if I say I want to stay for the bonus?

Does anyone at the Junior or mid-level here not aspire to be a creative director? I was in a conversation with some coworkers today about the advertising career ladder. Whether from lack of desire or ability to manage others, not everybody will rise to CD level. Does anyone here want to stay a writer or art director your whole career instead of moving into a management position? And is that even possible without aging out or getting priced out?
