@OP so far I haven’t noticed a change from the acquisition. The agency is committed to maintaining the culture no matter what. Recent projects include Tinder, Hallmark, CW Network, TV/print/digital for a couple hospitals, and an amazing non profit.

@Wongdoody1 Can't thank you enough. I went ahead and sent a note to Vickie. 🙌

@SS your blanket statement is not accurate. There are a number of shops hiring. I have Linkedinmails to prove it.

@Wongdoody1 Thanks for the heads up! 🙌 Classic shop. Any news on how the acquisition is going to play out? Also, what accounts does the LA office touch?

Anyone consider in house in LA? Is going in house still a creative taboo?

I fired my largest client today. 🙀 Sometimes it just isn't a good fit. It has to be a fit for not only my client but also for my agency. We're selective about the work we take on because relationships do matter, and strong relationships = better results. Today was liberating. What a breath of fresh air. We are accepting new clients for everything marketing related including graphic design, website design and development, SEO, digital campaigns, product photography, and video production.

3 months into a 6 month internal project. I proactively scheduled a feedback session with the “big boss”/key stakeholder tomorrow (I have weekly check-ins with my day to day lead weekly), and I am terrified. They are highly critical and can come off as abrasive, and any ad-hoc feedback I receive makes me feel like I’m never good enough. I’m expecting to have darts thrown at me and want to curl up in a ball and cry after... any advice? Just didn’t want to be blindsided at the end of the project.
