I just got a job offer from an Accenture owned studio and was wondering if I should take it. It’s a higher position and way better pay. I am a jr level designer at a good ad agency, but I feel stuck.

Follow the work. Especially this early in your career. Go where you’ll most likely produce the best stuff under the best people. Don’t cash out too early. Then you’ll have a very hard time getting back into the creative shops. It can be a grind in the beginning but you just have to keep at it and good things will happen. The hardest part is getting into a good agency. Seems like you’ve already done that. But once you start adding dull names to your resume and dull work to your book it gets harder and harder and you dig yourself into a hole.

Youre too young to just go for the security. Like @SC1 said, go where you can do the best work. Im 20+ years in, so I can tell you—anything cool or semi famous you can do now you can trade for offers and money later.

Imagine someone saying “we should hire this guy. He went to work for Accenture when he was 24.” (You think you feel stuck now?)

Take it. It sounds like a great opportunity for growth. When you let your current agency know you have an offer, they may want to counter it if they want to keep you and you can ask for a match (or more) if you really want to stay at the agency.

As a creative who’s currently working at an Accenture-acquired shop, I agree with holding off for as long as you can. The best work I did was in the beginning of my career when I was broke but working on the most creative accounts. It’s still the work I’m most proud of. Now, the pay and work-life balance is definitely WAYYYY better but the the work is dull, uninspiring and slow. I’m getting anxious at what I want to add to my book after being here almost a year.

Also, the young kids I work with are so jaded by the cushy salary and corporate title. It’s off putting and embarrassing. Build your book for as long as you can.

If your clients don't provide opportunity for fun projects, do stuff on the side. Use the pay up to fuel your progress in the industry.

Definitely take the new gig. It’s a leg up and better projects and clients come with time and experience. Opportunity is what you make of it.
