Depends on the client

Every once in a while it's good to be there before the client. Staying after they leave is usually not a problem.

No.

No

If I do it's only to get there early because I know it's a time when client won't bug me, not for ~optics~

It's required on my project. Optics!

A colleague shared with me the presentation they have prepared for their promotion case. I worked with them on multiple projects during the year and I can clearly see that some of the claims on the deck are wild exaggeration or lies. For example, managed changes in scope for Project X including contract changes. Plot twist: there never was a change of scope for Project X and the contract is exactly the same. How can people be so dishonest? How far can you go before truth catching up?

I have a job, and I’m grateful that I do! But it makes me extremely unhappy. I’m talked down to constantly, our client treats us like we’re dumb and they have no trust for the creative team, and I’m constantly anxious. How do I find a new gig during these (forgive me for saying this) unprecedented times? Or what do I do/say if I want to switch accounts within my agency? I need some advice from other women who’ve been through this and succeeded at finding something that makes them happier.

I’m still standing here citing this statute saying dismiss this case. Go ahead and tell the judge something he doesn’t know about me.” *mic toss*
