Let’s get some salary transparency going. Job title. How much you make. Do you enjoy your job.
Senior Strategist looking for opportunities in NY. Lmk if you're hiring or know somewhere that is. Full time and project-based are welcome! 🙏
Any interest in using this group for some sanitised benchmarking? Clearly no client names but e.g. country, company size range, KPI (for whatever is of interest)
I just inherited someone and made him a Creative Project Manager. He is naturally a good PM (but never did it officially), and is a great people person, but doesn't have any professional experience as a CPM. I want to get him some great training so he can be great at it. We use InMotion Now as our project management software (which is generally great for us). Do you have any recommendations on any online trainings, seminars, podcasts, whatever, that I can pass along to him? TIA.
How do you deal with fake & crazy leadership? I come from a place where creative was thrown under the bus without proper client realization. Then non-action-oriented account supervisors were promoted.
After a client call, which I drafted the talking points for, the male partner on the deal and a male senior associate went to grab lunch. I was tasked with dropping off the partner’s notebook on his desk. It may be that he and the associate had preexisting plans, but I was the only woman in the room/on the call. I can’t help but feel he wouldn’t have asked a male associate to do that, and would have instead invited him. I regret not inviting myself….How should I have handled this?
Hi! If you recently joined a new company within the last, I’d really appreciate if you could fill out this survey! I’m doing user research for a project.
If you’re doing a project and have to buy an asset—font, music track, etc—do you add that to your invoice? And, if yeah, how do you avoid getting taxed on it? Write it off during tax time?
It's X number of weeks/months from now, and it's your first day back to the office/client site. What's something you do that first day you've missed being able to do for months?
As a generalist with ~3 YOE with non-technical background (Liberal Arts lol), should I get some sort of hard skill before I try to get out of consulting? Honestly think all I’ve learnt are skills to make presentations efficiently and other BS soft skills. I’m not senior enough to have had credible project management experience either so honestly feel like I’m stuck here until I move up a level or two.
I’m doing a product photography gig for a small beauty brand. Client and I agreed on a visual direction and part of that is flat lays with “raw ingredients”. After the fact client emails me saying one fragrance is mountain air, phrased “think - you’re on top of a mountain in Patagonia” but the ingredients/language for the product are “clean linen fragrance, aloe, and activated charcoal... which I had already purchased based on the approved direction.

Having stress nightmares from new job & can’t wait to leave 😒 Joined a small agency in manager role that unlike what I was told in interviews, they’re very reactive. - decks must be put together within 1-5 days while learning how this agency does this project, learn about client, meet them, present it. - account managers disappear till presentation day. - when offering solutions, I’m told this is how it’s been. - payday is this week, still waiting to be onboarded. HR doesn’t have time 🤦🏼♀️
I’m 11 wks pregnant and started this new project right as I got pregnant- it’s been such a tough project and I’m not able to keep up. I’m not sure what to do - I’ve totally fallen behind and am not sure how I’m going to be able to proceed. I need something slower paced. Do I tell them I’m pregnant or do I just keep trying to do my best. 😞
Hi, in need of a comedy writer for a freelance project starting next week. It is for two videos for an internal sales conference in Jan. Thanks!
That moment when instead of muting your phone on a conference call you hit the wrong button and hang up mid-client rant. Oops.
Favorite client: Jasper's Market
Looking to move to LA and go client side. Anyone know of any recruiters that specialize in Brand Comms roles in LA? Thanks.
Do you guys also get anxiety feeling like you haven’t done enough, the client or managers seem to think you are not that smart, etc? I get really bad anxiety very often :(

There should be a consulting boomerang bowl.
Ever bombed an interview so badly that you agreed at the end of the call you aren't a good fit?
Question for the Oliver Wyman folks: Do you need to be close to an office to be considered? Closest office is about 2.5-3 hours from me but am interested in applying.
Dear people: if you send me your shit PD work to do, please include a PD WBS code. I ain't doing it without the credit. 🙏
