For advertising folks: is it common to have an offer rescinded and put on hold because of “restructuring” on the clients side?

yes, depending on the group you’re applying to. for example, many client services positions (account) are assigned to specific groups on the client side, so the client structure matters. while creative is often billed per the estimated hours on a project, so the structure may not matter. and also, that could be a cop out excuse because they’re delaying hiring now or going with someone else…that’s the possible bad news.

You were partially right. Budget was a factor, but I was the first choice, so they offered a chance to interview for AE that would work between the original account and another one, met six people total…and just got rejected
