No. But the myth persists

Is it a still myth when you get conflicting numbers from agencies, coworkers and recruiters? (But I do thank you for responding)

Yes, we are generally smarter than you...

They don’t “officially” make more. But they happen to be more scarce in pharma, so are in higher demand, which leads to higher salaries. So it’s mostly an economics thing. Art directors who are in high demand can make more than average too.

I had a freelance CW try to convince me she should get more than me because I didn’t need to know the science. First, that’s insulting to say I don’t need to understand the topic, too, and second, she doesn’t need to know Adobe CS, lol. I avoid working with her and went onto other gigs where I know I charge more than she does.

From what I've seen, oncology writers can make more. Since they really have to know the science.

They do tend to, whether it’s right or not. A lot of partners however go in together.

I'm trying to compare the perks and benefits of leadership positions at the four big CRE firms; JLL, Cushman Wakefield, CBRE and Colliers. Can anyone comment on any perks or benefits they get at the companies I don't work for? I'm thinking company swag, travel to conferences or to meet with clients, leadership retreats, nice offices, vehicles, clothing allowances etc. Curious if there are any benefits to being a leader at any of the other firms. Thanks

Mommies, I have witnessed several households where men don't help with even the smallest chores. The kids grow up seeing this and probably believing that household work is only for women, no matter how tired they are after slogging at their day jobs everyday. What is the right way to tell parents about this upbringing and asking men to help out with household chores, at least for the sake of their kids' future?

Honestly I don’t think agencies are going to exist the way they do 15-20 years from now. The way they operate is designed for burn out for employees. I’ve worked at a total of 5 agencies across Chicago and NYC, and things end up always being toxic and the work life balance is just not sustainable nor justifiable when I look back. I mean look across this app and see what people post in regards to advertising, we deserve better.

Just out of curiosity... Why (most) healthcare agencies don’t go after brands outside the the therapeutic space? (Eg: Fitness, nutrition, mental health, financial health, etc). It seems like everything in this segment is pills and vaccines 😪 I think those brands could allow us experiment more and do things MLR wouldn’t let us do.
