Analysts and Associates. Don't wear a backpack to the office and don't bring one to client meetings. And by all means don't play Pokemon Go when I see you. It's cute for about three seconds...
For those who moved from agency to client side - I'm considering a client side director media role. I'm currently a VP group director on the agency side.

Anyone witness slackers who got into companies you have no idea how? Had a coworker who does jack chit at work besides chatting on Facebook yet lands at a faang company? I guess if he brings the same work ethic he will be spit out for sure. Or maybe he just had no interest in doing project work.

I’ve been off my last billable project for about a month, but my firm has had me putting in full days to work on important internal initiatives and business development that are being taken very seriously, and that include deadlines, etc. very similar to the work I’d do while on a project.

How long do you think my firm might let me stay employed like this if they continue to have this much non-billable work for me?
