Have you ever seen a client fired in mid-production?

Yes. When client requests start becoming wish lists of results for campaigns that don't even have creative ready yet because items sent for approval receive comments with even more wish lists, causing the whole process too get bogged down and nothing to get off the ground. It's rare, but it's a thing that happens. Generally this all kicks off with, "I read on [out of date blog] that we should do..." and then loops until everyone is ready to scream.

Yes. For making inappropriate comments to women in the workplace.

I’ve seen this too. Was glorious.

Yes, while I was on a shoot.

Worst client ever. Worst shoot ever. Adweek article (dropped while shooting) announcing their company hired another guy who’s going to be responsible for the brand??

I’ve never seen it - period.

No, only in the RFP phase.

Do you mean terminate a client relationship? The clients pay the agency, so technically, only the clients are capable of doing the firing.

I actually meant fired by their bosses.

someone save this attorneys job. I hired an attorney with 5 years experience. I send her assignments and usually the law we're using. She never reads the breifs or memos we've prepared. Does her own research and usually misses the points. When I ask why she says she's intimidated by the memos etc and they're "hard". That drove me up a wall. We don't get paid to do easy things. Just because it's hard you give up? WTF.
