ECDs make decisions and pretend to direct the work, CDs direct the work and pretend to make decisions, ACDs suffer the consequences of the above.

Creative Director is a title at most agencies. They oversee teams of art directors and copywriters. Associate Creative Directors are a title below CD. Some ACDs might oversee junior creatives. Think of it as training wheels before becoming a full fledged CD. Some think it's an superfluous position, basically a "super senior" creative. Executive CDs are above CDs. They might oversee several CDs themselves.

ACDs are right above senior writers and ADs. Above them, are CDs who manage a whole team. Group CDs manage more than one team and have CDs under them. An ECD is responsible for all the creative output of the agency. Above the ECD, some agencies also have a CCO (Chief Creative Officer).

It’s because internships are a veiled way for agencies to flout labor laws and get cheaper labor. They don’t care about teaching. The whole practice should be outlawed. Either hire apprentices, or hire entry-level.
