How’s the work life balance at BCW?

I'm located in the Pittsburgh office so my experience may be different from New York but I get in around 930 and I leave between 6 and 630 nearly every day. After hours emails are minimal unless you're working a pitch or are on deadline, and people are pretty supportive of you taking vacation time and being offline (unless there's a crisis of some sort)

Legit. Everyone I know of actually checks out on their days off. Unless there’s something pressing, of course. + to clarify, we get 4 summer Fridays a year.

If my time at Burson (granted, back when it was B-M) is any indication, as long as the balance worked out in work’s favor, the work-life balance is fine. But that’s not exclusive to BCW by any means

I’ve heard pretty good things from people who work there. Also, know a handful of people interviewing at BCW for upcoming roles. Seems like they’re doing something right.

Creatives - if you aren’t happy with what your strategy partners are giving you, talk to us, or at least talk to your department heads and ask them to help get changes made. We can handle criticism, and it’s a lot more useful when it’s not in the middle of a briefing session. Also, while you’re at it, maybe spend some time talking to us about what else we do outside of writing briefs, because we do a lot.

I have a lead that wears revealing clothing at client site and it makes all of the women underneath her feel uncomfortable. She is the highest female on the team. Is there any way to bring this up?

Hiiii! I suck at keeping warm in the winter in professional clothes. I layer up but I feel like it looks sloppy. What go to pieces do you have? Pictures/links (shoes/clothes) welcome!

A colleague gave me a couple tabs of acid before he quit. Should I try it? I’m interested in the spiritual enhancement aspect of it but I heard it can go either way. Any word of wisdom?

Are Tier-3 folks ever let go? Not going into details, just despite my strong snapshots and RTRs for my practice (I know they don’t mean much), I’m concerned I’m on the chopping block. Don’t feel supported.
