Pros: creative work is continuing to get better and better. John and Justine are great. Winning Discover helped Grey avoid the huge bloodbaths other agencys became during Covid. Lastly, it’s mostly nice people here. Cons: we still lost a few really good people to covid furloughs. creatives have been saddled with a lot more than the creative work for awhile now, so they’re tired. still isn’t much culture. Overall: it’s a lottt better than most places, but far from perfect

Are all the other shops as busy? And if they aren’t shouldn’t they worry as well?

Quick update for those who might be curious about the situation in my school and our lack of COVID precautions. I often comment on here about how my school stayed in person all year last year with almost no difference from a normal year. No mask mandate, no teachers or staff masking. 10% or less of students masking. Very few vaccinated here. Results: we have no students, staff, or family members in the hospital. Very few cases either. Two months of this now.
