Better is subjective. It all depends on what you value and want out of your job.

I’m looking for stability, a work/life balance and fewer egos/politics. Even a marginal improvement is good enough for me. I don’t care about creative freedom that much, I’m looking at data work anyways.

1000% better for me being in house. I’ve worked at several agencies, but now I work remotely client side. I used to work on several clients at a time while at an agency. The thing I didn’t anticipate is that I went from having 7 client calls each week to only having one. I went from having to do work for 7 clients every day to just one. This has allowed me to go from being spread thin and only working surface level to being able to delve deeper into my work. I have so much free time now that I can go to the beach or do anything while still getting plenty of sleep.

Definitely can vary. I went in-house for a luxury automaker. The work/life balance is amazing and way better stability than I ever had at agencies.

The downside is that there is no fresh blood and no drive for operational innovation. This is the slowest organization I’ve ever worked for, they use almost no industry standard operational/collaboration tools and there is a baffling amount of redundant and illogical process.

In my experience, this has been a “monkey’s paw” kind of move.

How to handle recruiting burn-out? I’ve been actively searching for a new role for a little over a year now (obviously this is parallel to the pandemic). Any advice on how to go forward? I’ve had a few final rounds, but no offers or couldn’t get there on comp. I know applying online is likely to not yield anything, but cold e-mails are only marginally more effective. Feel tapped out in terms of my network...
