The people complaining they didn’t get gifts are probably the same people who didn’t respond to the email asking for the address to send it to

Production co gifts / perks really took a downward turn last couple years, in my experience. Used to be so fun, and now it’s “here’s a shirt”. Where are mah perks!?

They figured out years ago that I wasn’t in a position to get them hired, so they stopped with the gifts.

Do people still get to work with production companies :(

Had an agency producer get online in an industry group and complain about how gross and invasive and triggering it was for vendors (“ick”) to reach out and ask for personal information like a home address. Decided to just forego mailing anything this year, honestly. No one is in the office and asking for personal mailing addresses is a no-go.

We had a number of our vendors ask for “best addresses” for gifts last year and in 2020. I wasn’t offended. Let’s not pretend employees of ad agencies aren’t regular people. Everyone is just trying to cope with pandemic lifestyle and do business as close to usual as possible.
