Ah man the war stories.... lasted on a beauty account for 7 months until i had to bail and jump ship. The work is flat and two dimensional and u can get jaded pretty fast working on a campaign for lipstick or nail polish (especially if u dont have any bg knowledge or particularly care about beauty) because it just seems super inconsequential. Serious business though and the clients are absolute dictators. If they dont like you on a personal level theyll make your life hell

Worked on a beauty account for 10 months...don’t know how I lasted that long. A group of art directors called themselves “the betches” like I can’t even make that shit up.

I asked off a beauty brand at my agency. The work is not conceptual (which was hard for me) and the clients were terrible.

L’Oréal and every subsidiary are infamous for dragging their feet on decision-making. I haven’t worked on the accounts but have worked on 4 or 5 pitches. They’re always a nightmare.

Not a brag. Life is all about choices and owning your choices. I can not have kids and “retire” in 5 years (don’t get hung up on the word retire - simply means can choose to not have a corporate job) or have kids and retire in 25 years. What would you do and why?
