The same holding companies that pit two of their own agencies against each other in pitches? No. Holding companies are fairly clueless at this level.


Hop cities and don't put it on your resume.


This is silly. There’s need to “hop cities” or wear a disguise or be well-connected. Everyone knows some agencies just suck. Respect to you for realizing it early on and making a move. Just leave it off your resume and get on with your life.


Holding companies don't care. In fact, if the agency has an office on the other coast, they might not even care


Holding company doesn’t really come into play because all of advertising is so small and well connected. Depends on your reason for leaving and how well connected you are

*no need

People will know. They'll probably give you the benefit of the doubt... unless you make it a pattern.

It totally depends on the situation.
The risks aren’t much different if you jump to another holding company with a manager that knows your former employer.

How do you do the bare minimum at work? I don’t want to overwork myself this time, but I need to hang on to this job for a little while. I’ve never been good with “balance” or “pacing myself.” I try all the time but sometimes I wonder if I’ll ever get it together. So I’m asking… what does a more measured speed look like? What’s average office etiquette anymore? Or do we all have to be dialed up to 10 all the time now? I feel so on edge starting this new job a few months in….

NEW AWARD CATEGORIES. Are they going too far? Sure, there’s always room for a few additions like the One Show’s new ‘music and sound craft’ but their ‘innovation to overcome limitations imposed by the covid-19 pandemic’ category? Really? Feels like just opening new revenue streams. It’s all getting too diluted. Opinions?
