If you’ve made it to SVP level doing that then you’re in good shape. In this industry it seems like you can either be an average performer and never get promoted or a raise, or you have to dedicate your whole life to your career at the expense of everything else. Very little middle ground.

I feel like most people in advertising are drawn to the drama/adrenaline of a tight timeline, big asks, no budget, etc...it’s just the nature of the beast! I myself love the accomplished feeling I get when we pull it off, but right now my job is my life...if the family thing ends up happening for me, I feel like I might have to choose between the two - if what you’re asking for really does exist I might go there at some point haha!

In February of this year I was approached by a company out of Colorado that’s an AWS reseller (I love working w/ AWS Products). They offered a great 6-figure salary, unlimited PTO, full medical/ dental & Wellness benefits. Things felt too good to be true at first yet I know my worth and thought about time, a company finally saw my worth also, so I resigned from the company I spent over 12+ years with. Things were going great, then June I was placed on a bogus PIP (fully Corrected) then laid off.
