Might be able to cross reference Cannes work against Effies work.

This always ends up with basically just one campaign that actually wins in both.

There’s a separate award for creative effectiveness, outside of that though it’s hard to tell. A lot of ambitious up and coming ECDs will kind of say whatever they have to in order to win

I got sick this week at the client site and I’ve been camping at the hotel. I’ve got a nasty cough, should I wear a mask on the flight? I really don’t want to get anyone sick.

My client is jean friendly. I usually wear dress pants but my all male team keeps asking why I don't wear jeans and encourages jeans because of the culture. Women's jeans are usually tight And probably not work appropriate and I don't want to wear baggy mom jeans. Thoughts? Are skinny jeans okay? If not, what is?

I love when individuals say they don’t harbor any misogyny or bias against women, but when something goes wrong on an account or when the client isn’t being the best, it’s always the woman’s fault.

How do you all manage the months when you couldn't travel every week (doctor's rec) but were not yet on maternity leave? Given my industry focus and home office, I have very limited local project options. Did anyone go internal for 1-2 years and how did that play out for promotion?

I'm being staffed on a lot of tech implementation PMO, and I feel like I contribute some value to the project but I'm not building up career skills so much as I'm being a human network router for a bunch of different people. What skills can I spend this time consciously developing that will make a real difference in my career long term? Agile/SCRUM knowledge? Communication/people skills?

Contemplating moving from Chicago to the Bay Area. Household TC is ~375k. We have a toddler as well. Both our jobs would allow us to relocate at the same salary. Wanted to get advise on what to expect in terms of change in standard of living (3 bed /2 bath unit), transportation (we don’t own a car) and daycare expenses from people who have done a similar move.

This has fired up staunch Conservatives (not just MAGA) to vote Trump in November. Definitely an unfortunate situation for RBG to have passed, but Republicans nationwide have a newfound motivation to re-elect Trump
