The team I work with are a nightmare. Not collaborative and constantly trying to undermine the work. Bitter because they lost business to us. But I can’t apply that assessment across the group as a whole.

They're not a real agency. And their objects aren't that shiny. They do sites and banners for campaigns that AOR agencies did.

They pay well and support working (mostly) remote. Their AOR work is really sad (Zykadia and Tradjenta, for example, are good examples of pharma-fail creative.) But their digital tactics and analytics are pretty impressive.

Upper management is almost universally the most uninspiring, milquetoast group you’ll come across in agency life, though they’ve poached a few interesting people recently. But word is many of them aren’t happy there - big promises and little delivery, and it’s hard to change a culture at a big shop like that. They’re also not into NYC/LA agency types (loud, brash, confrontational) - it’s a very calm, Canadian culture but also very passive-aggressive.

They are hands down the most shamelessly self-promoting agency in the industry though (seriously, Michelle Obama at your “Muse” event? That’s trying just a little too hard).

Hello ladies, does anyone have a great non-judgemental financial advisor in NYC? I’m 34 & found myself back to $0 & living paycheck to paycheck after some unfortunate life circumstances. Want to know the best way to rebuild so I don’t have to work until I die and also have some hope. I feel like such a failure even though this was out of my control. Also being single and doing life on 1 income is even harder.
Would appreciate any recommendations or just words of encouragement at this point.

The worst creative I’ve ever worked with was just hired by W+K. Never made any decent work. Didn’t care about the work. We got awesome briefs creatives dream of and they wouldn’t lift a finger, putting extra work on the rest of the team. They mostly went unnoticed in the agency except by the people on their immediate teams who hated working with them. When we found out they were leaving, everyone assumed they got fired. So how does this person wind up at W+K?
