I like the work. But I'm one those people that thrive on stress. I did a rotation in the UK, and I have to say I liked the people better over there though. In the US all we talk about is work, even after work. I liked having colleagues who had other facets to them. I do generally like my team back here in the US though. They just all need hobbies.

I do, the work can get to you and sometimes the politics but overall, I've loved the opportunity

^ Seriously. I'm just trying to find a way to get back there!!

I like my people and my firm. The work is absolutely mind-numbing. I can feel myself getting dumber. #federal the plus side is that I have a life outside of work.

I like the people and the work. It's a little stressful right now, but I prefer that to mind-numbing boredom, and I've experienced both.

Me

Yes. I like the people more than the work, but the people are more important to me.

Yes good office here.

Which agency did the linear and/or cable/ addressable TV buy for the Allstate Pet Shop Boys spot?? It’s getting ridiculous with the frequency. Either the make good is causing the frequency to go out of control or a ton of GRP’s were purchased. IMO I think it actually hurts a brand when the frequency becomes out of control/annoying. And yes I still have cable TV... I need to watch my regional basketball!

How do you all stop feeling guilty? I have constant guilt which feeds my anxiety. Today was my first day back from little over a week off after a life-changing catastrophe. Partner texts me at 5 asking if discovery went out and it hadn’t, and I stopped myself from volunteering my night to fix this. Before I took off, partner was in settlement talks with OC and I didn’t know today was the discovery deadline as it had been moved from an earlier date.
