Do you get severance or compensation from agencies if they let you go and you're at a more junior level? Specifically for agency holding companies like Dentsu and Omnicom

Legally, you should. I’m not sure of the exact figures, but the longer you’re there, the greater the severance .

There's no law for mandatory severance with employment at will in the US Majority of employers especially publicly owned big corporations do offer severance, many follow the 1 week per each year of employment rule unless you're above certain title level

You should and remember not to sign anything bc you can always negotiate the offer no matter your level

Generally they pay out 1 week per year worked. And,, no, legally they aren’t required to do anything.

You should. It’s usually one or two weeks for every year you’ve been there. If you’re relatively new, you won’t get much, unfortunately. But they should pay you for any vacation time you’ve earned and haven’t taken

That depends on state law and company rules. It's not universal

I believe you should and do. Certain $ amount per year of service regardless of how jr or Sr the role was. Might even be part of onboard materials you signed. Read what you sign & ask HR

If you got pulled into a campaign that’s going live soon and you’re getting a slash, how do you handle “claiming” credit in your book? You want to be honest but acknowledged.

I’m on a long term project. My project is having me charge 10% of my time to a BD code. I suppose the argument could be made that we always do some BD to secure the extension of contract every few months but I’m level 9 and mostly just delivering client work (sometimes help develop assets as an extension of our delivery). Is this normal?

What if agencies took all the creatives they were going to fire due to age and made them recruiters? They'd actually know what to look for and we wouldn't lose all the wisdom they've accumulated.
