I just put in my resignation & teared up telling my client (he’s been my cheerleader for growing my career since day 1). Shout out to all of the men who empower women in their careers, they’re gems.

+1 to the shout out to all those wonderful men who support and uplift the people that work with them irrespective of their gender. I have been very fortunate to have worked with some leaders like this and can never thank them enough for all the unconditional support and encouragement. There should actually be a positive MeToo movement to encourage such men who inspire and motivate.

Love this idea of a positive metoo, though I think it would need to be different enough to not dilute the importance of the current metoo

In my second busy season of PA (2 years ago), auditing a specialty finance company that we all quickly came to realize stunk to high hell. We ended up issuing an adverse opinion over a disagreement with the client to book an approx. 100MM write down adjustment to deferred revenue. We walked away with the thought that we had just scratched the surface of their corruption. Fast forward 2 years and low and behold they’re under a 1.2B dollar investigation by the SEC and their CEO is in prison.

So, I recently started my first job in an agency (media manager). Before this I worked on the client side, and I expected agency to be more high paced and much busier, but I don’t think that working on average 10-12 hours (or longer) a day is normal. As I said, I am new to the agency life, so I have no idea if this is the case in every agency and account, but I feel completely burned out and exhausted. Is this quite common in agencies or am I being taken advantage of?
