Picture this: you work at an established agency where you have the respect of your colleagues are a valued team member and have close friends BUT you are on a client you hate with no end in sight and worry that you are working on autopilot. You get an offer for a much smaller firm that is a higher risk but will offer new challenges, new work and a new city. Do you stay another 6 months and survey the landscape then or go?

I’ve been watching re runs of SATC during the lockdown. I used to like this show but recently have found how dumb and demeaning the dialogues and story line is. Like when Carrie is dating a politician and asks her friends to vote for him “because I’m sleeping with him”. They sound so nagging and so brain dead. Funny how I didn’t think that 20 years ago
A former co-worker (not from W+K) who I know got let go because he was not effective or good at his job just got a new job as a VP of Design of a major corporation. He blatantly lied about his experience on LinkedIn (and I assume his resume), inflating his title and severely either overstating his role on projects or flat-out making up projects. It made me wonder just how many “leaders” do you think gain their roles this way? I know it happens, but that doesn’t lessen my anger one bit.
Trying to transition into agency and I feel like I’m missing something/not understanding. For AE, what do bring managers mean when they ask your proficiency in PowerPoint/Excel/Word (the whole office suite tbh)? I feel like everyone uses them for the same things... what should I be focusing/highlighting?
I've been thinking a lot about women in leadership positions and their choices to support or undermine other women, especially if those other women are talented/skilled and perceived as a threat. In the very competitive space of advertising/marketing, scarcity is a dynamic that may compel some women leaders to be unempathetic, uncompassionate, distant and even bullying and scapegoating to hold onto their position and be taken seriously. It's sad, weak, and hurts all of us. What do you all think?
