Do you ever worry that you won't be taken seriously as a creative because you work in Pharma? I know it's not the best, but I do sometimes feel embarrassed when I am out with friends who for example work for fashion etc. I am happy here though

I did, and then I stopped worrying and learned to love the paycheck. 😉

Seriously though — don’t feel like you’re any less of a creative because you have pharma experience. Our creativity and ability as “creatives” isn’t defined by our jobs. But hey, if you want to diversify your book with non-pharma work, it never hurts.

I used to feel that way before realizing my salary is $50k higher because of it LOL, at the end of the day it’s just a job and if that means I can live more comfortably in pharma then that’s where I’m staying

I could point out every category out there and name the most embarrassing advertising ever made within every one of them. On the other hand, there’s some great pharma out there. Look at Cannes.

Hey everyone. I found out we are expecting our first child and I’m really nervous. I got into consulting one year ago and I’m up for promotion this year. With timing of our performance conversations I would have to inform I’m pregnant before outcomes - then shortly after the promotion effective date I would go on a leave for due date. I’ve worked really hard and I’m worried our wonderful news will throw chances with this :(- also if I don’t get promoted pretty sure it’s up or out. Any advice?
