Do other agencies have a “no hiring people from Vayner” policy or is my inability to land a new job just because I suck?

If creative, book wins every day. That said, I'd question why someone had to take a job at vayner. There's no ban. But a certain hesitation? Sure.

hmm very interesting, thanks CD😊

Yes.

You have a better shot than I do, though luckily the pharma agency I work at doesn’t have “Health” or “Wellness” in its name.

Area23?

I’ve never heard of this. I believe it’s probably harder for Vayner alumni to find a job if they are a creative. However, people in the media department have had no issues.

Drop your book in the book review bowl to find out.

I think less of Mr peanut and vayner. But yah, sure, we talked about it. 🙄

I worked there and had no problem getting hired. Now I’m not even trying to look — it’s a pandemic out there still

I’m a strategist but it’s literally the first thing anybody ever asks me about in interviews and it was three jobs ago.

Read above

it’s an agency built on creating a lot of decent creative for low cost in areas most creative agencies ignore. but GV is building up agency clout to make super bowl ads, which are his only shot at what people call “great creative” these days. it’s not an agency you’re gonna leave being able to pick your next job, but it’s one that you’ll leave getting a new perspective on the industry from, so use that to woo a new employer if you get an interview.

This bowl: USA vs non USA I enjoy a lot of threads in this bowl, but equally a hell of a lot are US specific, and pharma advertising just doesn't work in the same way anywhere else in the world. Would love to know what proportion of the active bowl users are based inside vs outside of the USA? Should threads always have country/city tags where relevant? Edit for clarity, it's not just DTC vs HCP, it's also queries like who's hiring, who's doing good work, process, workload, holidays, etc.

Genuine question: What are the most common exit options at Google BizOps? (1) For internal transfer to PM, those teams seem to prefer to hire Google engineers.

(4) For leaving Google, I don’t know where people usually go… Please share your thoughts / correct me if I’m wrong. Thanks!

I seriously doubt some of the recruiters and hiring managers in the big4s now a days, their decisions w.r.t. designation and pay depends on their mood and willingness to work on a particular day.. They will interview for X designation and then will ghost you and then will come back with a lower level and pay saying would you be interested?🤣 Why would somebody be interested to join at a lesser pay, when he/she is currently well in his/her job and just found the opportunity more interesting...
