I feel like I do so much MORE work than my manager, when it comes to meetings he's often unprepared and I think my group director is starting to get suspicious. Should I do anything or mind my business and see how this plays out?

If your GD is getting suspicious, for now do exactly what you’re supposed to do, keep receipts (email chat etc.) and watch it play out.


Provide feedback if there are 360s. Or ask for time with the director on the state of the business from your pov. Offer solutions after you state the concern.

People dictating emails that they otherwise could just send themselves. Honestly wtf is this? It takes less time to just write something. It often doesn’t even feel like a didactic method, just a way to hide under more junior associates. There is a senior who does this constantly, over the phone, and it’s just ducking intolerable. Even with emails directed at them, I get a call that then tells me to respond and write back X. It can be such an insufferable thing that just kills time.

Anyone else experiencing the same?

I am so sick of hearing about well-being and the “tips” we should adopt in trying to make a difference. Blocking out time in my diary doesn’t do anything aside from making my days longer. It’s about time management assess workload (client and non client) and actively resolve that as the FIRST step to helping most of our wellbeing. Rant, sorry.

Salaam everyone, I (26F) been thinking more about settling down and I’m honestly at loss at the Islamic way to go about it. They say you don’t really know someone anyway unless you marry them so are we supposed to just do istikharah for a stranger and hope for the best? Because everyone is always going to say nice things, we’d always try to impress the other person, how can we even know someone

Guys, I hope you all are doing well.

I am pretty desperate working for a brand like Google, Meta, Amazon. I do have worked as business analyst and project manager in life insurance domain but I think such exposure is meaningless for these brands. What certification do i need to pursue to make myself eligible?
I am not so good in technical to help teams technical issues rather I can definitely add value in integration or logic building or giving functional clarifications

Thanks in advance !!

Hi Everyone, need some advice. The only reason why I took my current role is because my direct supervisor would be a black woman VP- I was obviously excited because I've never worked with another black woman before. She's been out on maternity leave since September and I've had to cover her role and do my job, which is two levels above mine and supervising someone above my level. Yesterday the SVP tells me they found a new VP (ww) who would be my new boss.

If there is any talented jr. copy I’m looking for someone to join me at a great agency in Amsterdam, Netherlands. DM me for more info :)

Hi - first, white woman here. Please let me know if I am intruding! That said, a friend of mine is looking for CD CWs and she was really hoping to bring a woman of color into the role. It sounds like there aren’t even applicants. I racked my brain and while I know many who are in the art side, I don’t know a single writer. If you are interested, DM me your book! It’s a fantastic job. Also, I was wondering if there is a reason there seem to be less CD writer females of color vs art?
