This is about internal reviews. The one that happens before client presentation. In my experience, these reviews have become very tasking over the last few years. Everyone is riding on assumptions. Biases trickle in. “Hey what about my idea?” is often thrown in. It maybe a thing in my agency. But if its happening at your place as well, how do you guys tackle it? It often happens that the client refers to the lack of idea that dies in these internal reviews. Any words of wisdom? Any insights?

🤢 Sorry but I do don’t miss leaving my family at the crack of dawn, spending all my time crammed into a client conference room, forced fun team dinners, and leaving exhausted and anxious on Thursday.

Need counsel: Left advertising to go client side last year. Working at a huge company isn’t for me long-term but the money is great, I have more balance and actually raised my kids this year.

Also thinking about having another kid soonish.

I’m ashamed of it, especially since my SO is a strong, intelligent, highly independent woman who likes to work, and I wouldn’t want to change anything about her.
