Didn't W&K just pick up the air b&b business? I'm sure it's fine. Lots of boutique shops. North, Grady Britton, Instrument and others

Weiden I believe is doing well, and Instrument...tech is thriving (Puppet) and Laika was recently hiring. PDX is taking its hits like everyone else but I haven’t noticed it “dying” work wise

WK is awful. The work is good and the benefits are good but they have massive layoffs every 7 months it seems. Portland has a lot of small shops that are really cool (but very “Portland” design-wise). The city is very freelance heavy tho, which isn’t for everyone. AKQA is doing well and always hiring creatives. RGA is whatever. Swift seems to be doing well but all they do is social soooo? All of these companies do have travel opportunities tho, so that’s cool. But the city is hella small. You know the entire ad community in like a year and a half.

How long should you wait to follow up with a recruiter after interviewing with them? They didn’t give me a timeframe and when asked if I have pending offers I said no.

How much can you share at an interview related to the projects you've been on? Can you basically say anything and just replace with "client A" or "company B". Wondering what the consulting norm is.
