How’s the culture like at GCP? Do you work more hours on average in this PAs than others? I’m starting next month and wanted to get a feel of the expectations.
I used to work at West Monroe Partners, it was a great place to work but we were severely under paid. Why cant a management team put the total package together of culture and comp? That would crush.
Looking for a change of pace (currently in Boston) and am considering trying out Denver. I’d love anyone’s input on relative pros and cons (gay community, food scene, city culture, what the people are like, etc)! For context: I’m a gay male in my mid 20s. Bos has been nice and all but I’m tired of how expensive it is and want to try something new.
Ok, so I finally moved to Streeterville area and I’m dealing with a bit of a culture shock here. People around here are stuck up snobs. No offence to anyone but what is up with that? Californian here.

What do you think contributes to your success and growth as an individual at your work culture? What qualities do you seek out in the teams and companies you work with? On the flipside, what are some red flags at a company you've experienced? Culture of transparency, where the more the information flows, all team members are leveled up. A culture that encourages talking about failures translates into learning and experimentation
Do you feel like the fbowl community affords enough freedom to post what you want? Or it’s too quick of a shutdown culture? Too PC or too irreverent? Myself? I find it pretty balanced. Much better than old media spy or whatever that was. So hateful and negative.

Question for marketing and advertising pros- a Business Insider report says employees at Zimmerman Advertising (link here: https://www.businessinsider.com/employees-alllege-racism-sexism-zimmerman-advertising-omnicom-agency-2021-3) have reported experiencing racism and sexism. Employees have also said they feel pressured to return to the office. (https://www.businessinsider.com/zimmerman-advertising-employees-say-agency-is-pressuring-them-to-return-2021-3) Poll question: what type of agency culture are you hoping to return to at your own agencies we think about getting back to the office?
Interviewing feels like gambling. Guessing if what I say this time will match what they want to hear or not. If my work is good, there’s a culture fit, and references check out. Why is that not enough
London. What agencies are pretty good, but won’t burn me out? Last year I joined THE agency but i can’t do it. I’m in tears every week after 65 hrs no break. It just keeps piling up. Don’t care about awards and agency sex appeal anymore, I just want a decent culture, decent work/life balance some weeks 😢
Question for people who have worked at multiple firms: Which firms culture did you like the best and why? I'm considering making a lateral move to be in a better, more positive environment.
One of my biggest pet peeves is when non Spanish speakers “playfully” respond to me in Spanish saying, “gracias” or “hola.” If you genuinely take an interest in another language or culture, I can respect that. However, if I’m speaking to you in English, please don’t try and be cute and respond in Spanish. All my life I heard “speak English you’re in America” and now all of a sudden it’s okay for white people to speak Spanish, but not me? It’s exhausting being non white in this country.

Venting: Time is money. If you wait too long to text me back after I inquired about your services to do some home repairs (especially when you said you prefer texting than call), you will not get my money. And here I thought I’d support small businesses rather than go to a chain company who will nickel-and-dime me.🙅🏼♂️
