Yeah not taking it as a good thing...

You have a lot to choose from. Microsoft, Verizon Wireless, Fios, Lockheed Martin, State Street, USPS, HomeGoods, Tommy Tippee, Nat Geo, Chick-fil-a, MGM casinos, Lysol, Musinex, Nespresso, Cigna, Oppenheimer Funds, MasterCard, Qualcomm, L’Oréal, NY Lottery, Choice Hotels, US Army. Holler with q’s.

@mccann1 but like, what’s the vibe? Is it creative led? Accounts led? Work/life balance? I know which brand I’d be working on (it’s actually not one you named, which kind of reveals what it is) but worried to move to nyc without truly knowing how life is like for a sup

@OP really depends on the account. Tends to be creatively led lately, working Account people really hard to fight for idea, some that are good and others that could be better. Work life balance also depends on the account, but there are a few that actually do have lives. Heads up that Sups tend to run young at McCann, so if you’re coming from another city, you might be equals with a lot of youngsters, if that makes any difference to you.

P.S. I think I might know the account you’re referencing, and it’s very new.

@McCann 1 - you probably got it right since it was just announced! They said it’s going to be more creative but it may be because I’m from a creative-led agency. Not sure if they were using it as a selling point.

Thanks for all the feedback. Really helpful!

@OP glad I could help! I work in your dept. I’ll introduce myself when you start.
