I think it’s more of a case-by-case basis vs. the industry as a whole. It really depends on the agency and the culture. I’ve been in agencies where people are genuinely focused on the work and collaboration, but I’ve also been in agencies where you have to navigate around land mines to complete a simple task. The latter just gives the industry a bad reputation

The economy.

@OP Are you really asking or are you just saying people are bad? Everything that happens in ANY industry comes down to people Unless what you’re trying say is the people who are saying this industry is bad are the bad people. Well I disagree on that point if that is what you mean

Does anyone else feel like Olympic campaigns are seriously subpar this year? (One exception being the skateboarding FB ads by Droga). Normally I feel like there are at least several great campaigns you see over and over and this year I literally can’t even bring many to mind. Wondering if the cause has been covid production restrictions, or less money pumped in due to fear of the games being cancelled, or brands feeling like the Olympics shouldn’t have even happened. Thoughts?

We have sales people in Canada and the US, the Canadians make 150K CAD and down here it’s 150K USD, the Canadians argue they should be making 30% more than the US colleagues to be equal bc of the exchange! I explain the salary is dependent on the market data for them in Canada, WHERE THEY LIVE, and you can’t compare it to the US employees and the market data down here. Overall they are both in the 75th% for total comp. for their industry. Am I wrong?

For all the US colleagues: A fellow consultant was doing his MBA in the US. He left in a hurry due to covid and came back to London, but didn’t close his bank account with Santander and left $6-7K. Now the bank says that you can NOT transfer the money to another UK bank with online banking and you need to be physically present at one of their branches to do so. He is not planning to go back for a year. Any advice?
