I just graduated ad school (art direction) and need some advice... Any thoughts on Goodby vs Venables (assume pay is the same, I don’t want this to be about the $)? I love both agencies and am very torn between the 2. All thoughts are welcome! Happy to DM as well.

I'd go with goodby. There's a great pair of black CDs there to learn from/work with, the clients are more interesting (imo), and the shop--despite ups and downs--is generally pretty solid. A good place with Google people to start your career. Work life balance is terrible for both shops tho

I second this. I met the 2 Black CDs in New York and they were awesome.

Senior, pregnant and worried about busy season because half the seniors in my practice quit in the past two months. Directors have said to seniors “brace yourself”. I am already stressed and high risk and off my ADHD meds and struggling a lot to get work done. Is it worth taking maternity leave early and “screwing over” my teams? I feel guilty. Doctor suggested to take medical leave if I am struggling. Need advice 😢

Fast forward one year; I’ve added a new campaign to my website and I’m starting to apply to consumer agencies again.  Any tips to help me make the transition? Any place to avoid? Who have you noticed is hiring again? Thanks in advance :)
