how do you make the work better without doing it yourself? how would you manage dysfunctional teams? what do you feel a creative director’s job should be? how would you inspire a team to work on a project? how do you work across disciplines (strat, production, account, etc.)?

I fired my largest client today. 🙀 Sometimes it just isn't a good fit. It has to be a fit for not only my client but also for my agency. We're selective about the work we take on because relationships do matter, and strong relationships = better results. Today was liberating. What a breath of fresh air. We are accepting new clients for everything marketing related including graphic design, website design and development, SEO, digital campaigns, product photography, and video production.

I work in a small team in sales at a bank and my boss doesn’t let me engage with any of our clients. Whenever they reach out, he insists he’ll deal with it and makes me do the admin in the background.I’ve been in this role for over 2 years and still don’t have any meaningful relationships. I have a meeting with him to discuss my career goals next week. How do I tell him that this is not what I want from my career? I’m worried he’ll think I’m after his clients if I say I want more responsibility

Hi Fishes, Accenture has openings in their mobilization team under the ops division. I have been offered a role at CL9 with fixed component of around 15 LPA. I have 5.5 YOE. The offer is approximately a 100% hike on my previous salary however i was able to negotiate on my current offers from from EY and FSL (both less than Accenture offer). Is the HR lowballing me and would you have any feedback for the mobilization team. Thanks

I was rejected at Netflix right after passing the recruiter screening. The reason given is that they're looking for someone who has worked on longer-term projects. I worked on my last project for 2 years and have a 6 year project on my resume as well. I guess they don't like that I've been an independent consultant for the last four years and was on 4 projects during that time. Has anyone else encountered this kind of bias against independents working on shorter-term projects?
