Probably dependent on your team (really disliked my work environment personally). People have been leaving in droves since the Fall though.

I started last year and have been enjoying it. For the most part, the hours for me as “a creative” have been fantastic. Not always of course, and I’ve definitely worked weekends, but far better than most agencies. In fact, they seem to really value and respect personal time. Your team obviously has a lot to do w/ it and I’ve been fortunate enough to be working with a couple great teams. No agency is without its flaws, but leadership seems pretty eager to create a comfortable environment. I’d definitely recommend it to friends. Congrats on your offer btw.

The good: it’s Mcann. The bad: it’s Health. Funny, but true.

Freelanced there for almost a year (was brought in for a 3 month gig). Loved it there. Great people. Reasonable hours. That being said, a LOT depends on the account & team. Good luck!

You are told that you have exactly two years to live from today; you will be in good health for that entire time. Are you happy with your life choices to date? What would you stop, and what would you start? (These questions are usually “one day” or “six months”, but that feels implausible and forced.)

Seeking to understand: I have a good friend who struggles with anxiety. Whil I try to be there for her and be understanding, sometimes it feels very one-sided. I went through a very rough health scare myself about a month ago and I realized she wasn’t really there for me and even when we talk, it’s mostly about her and what is stressing her out.  I know she doesn’t mean to make it about her, but it does frustrate me. I don’t want to get resentful but im starting to. Any advice or perspective?

Hi all, I realize this isn’t a medical community but would still appreciate insights. I started Trintillix for anxiety / depression but ultimately insurance wouldn’t cover it. I switched to Wellbutrin and didn’t feel anything. I also now need to get off Wellbutrin because of some other medical things. What successes have people had for anxiety / depression? I have a history of eating disorders so really won’t take anything that might make you gain weight. Realize this is a tall order, but TIA.

How do you know if you actually have inattentive ADHD vs general anxiety? Those of you who do: how long did it take to get diagnosed?

I often forget timelines & major details esp about people. (I was talking to a friend about someone and forgot we all work together)
