Confessions

I just interviewed a potential AD partner and as soon as I heard they “prefer to write their own scripts” I voted No. Should I have given them a chance?

I love having an AD partner who writes scripts. Doubles our chances of coming up with something good. What’s your objection?

Objection would be he doesn’t know how to interview without coming off as a d-bag I guess.

Able to writer scripts and prefers to write scripts are two different things. I love a good team effort but sounds like there’s a lot of ego behind that “prefers.”

No. Working together is cool. But someone who thinks they can run it all will end up being nothing but a pain in the ass.

False. My AD writes and he’s great. It’s how we get to the best stuff. Lose your ego.

I prefer to write too. Any creatives want to back me up on that? No? Oh. So stay in your lane then. This read like an AD who didn’t want a partner.

It’s just an odd thing to say in an interview.

I don’t think it’s the fact that they want to write scripts that screams “no”, but the fact that they refer to them as “their own”. On a good team everything should be “ours”.

This exactly^ I prefer to help write scripts over just taking the back seat and storyboarding, but I wouldn’t call them “my own”

he should contribute to scripts, offer ideas, write some things up of course.... but this sounds like more than that. i don’t think i could make my own comps without my partner adjusting them or contributing/wanting to change them so...

I once had a copy partner who told me to never contribute copy because it's disrespectful

Fuck that noise no way. The scripts should always be both of yours even if you wrote every word. Sometimes my partner writes scripts but it’s understood I can always go in and tweak.

Had an interview where the agency said they don't do "junior / mid / senior" levels in their creative department. My CW and I are st that stage where that seniority is important for us and for our future progression. Is it one of those things that we fight for on the contract, or just sign anyway and just put "senior creative" on our LI title? I've never come across this before, so any experience or thoughts are appreciated.

Anyone know the salary band for 2 YOE in consulting at a big 4? Just got promoted from A to C and if I got a 10% raise I’d only be at $63k which I think is severely underpaid.

Client demands we remove 2 different people from their account in 2 months — for nit-picky pretty ridiculous reasons. One month later complains that there is too much turnover on the team.
