Has anyone successfully been able to pivot to careers without stepping back after 10+ yrs of implementation work? I’d love you hear your journey and how you went about doing so.
Seeing my boss in person soon and haven't shared my news yet. I'm definitely showing a lot even though I'm still early on in my second trimester. Should I say something before we meet in person so it's not a total shock at the office? I was out on mat leave less than a year ago with my first so not sure if this second one will be received so positively this soon after.
In an all creative meeting, an ECD referred to a female creative team as “the girls.” To anyone with the word “Director” in your title, please use our names not our gender to identify us.
Did anyone make a move to NZ and find a job there (not internal transfer or 6months gig)? How did you go about it?
Feeling like I should have spent my 2020 on building my lead generation and marketing efforts online more of a priority. I did most of my business over Zoom and did pretty well, but I definitely should have focused on building my business online in preparation for this year.

Good night, all. Tried not to gripe but it was over 100 degrees today in the Bay Area. Imagine my every reply with sweat dripping down my neck. So grateful for all who chimed in about pay equity!
Feeling really salty and need to be talked off a ledge 😂 I came from industry and a client of my firms. My old boss is a high up executive. We have been doing more work with my old company and a bunch of male leaders set up an event and happy hour with the execs there. They asked me to help work on materials, but I didn’t get invited to the event and I’m one of the only locals… and there’s only a couple females going from my firm. Am I overreacting? I’m pretty annoyed by it.

I've gotten at least 3 'final reminders' from HR to complete the Self ID survey. Can't help but feel it's because of my last name...sorry, not gonna be a diversity box for you to check.

Is there room to ask for more $$ once you get the offer even though the agency said twice that it’s capped at X amount? And if not asking for more money, what other perks can you ask for/negotiate? Share your negotiation wisdom please.
I hate that I can’t just enjoy a quiet period instead of feeling like it means I’m about to get laid off

What's Your Take?:
Asking creatives to work on a project with lots of award potential but minimal budget/billable time allocations. So the majority of the work would be done on personal time.
I love how my standards have noticeably gone downhill over the years of work. I started out thinking EVERY BRIEF HAS TO BE LIKE NIKE. Now I just rest easy when I can look at my work drunk.
