What’s more important to this agency: making margin or making good work?

I would ask them what they think differentiates their agency’s creative process from the pack? Their answer will tell you who’s really in charge and whether or not they know what goes in the company. (Not always a deal-breaker, but if they don’t have a unified brief process and point of view, chances are higher that the agency is a mess/sweatshop/client churn in my experience.)

Ask what makes their agency unique.

Well-intentioned advice or racist sexist BS?

My 22 month old son has been extremely violent recently, mostly towards his father. He bites, scratches and hits my husband a lot, often unwarranted, and once in a while, does the same to me. He is also very aggressively shaking his head back and forth when he doesn’t want to eat anymore and swipes food away that he doesn’t want. It’s pretty monstrous. Not sure if this is normal for his age or if we should start looking at behavioral therapists.

Hi Fishes, Today I received a call from the Accenture recruiter who had discussed my HR round and my profile was put on hold. She told me that at level 10 the maximum fixed salary can be 11.10 LPA and rest variable. 11.10 is fine or can they increase? I told her to proceed my profile although I am having offers from other organisation like PWC with 14 fixed, but I beleive Accenture is better in terms of work life balance and onsite opportunity.
