I just wanna show up, be nice, do decent to good work (maybe sometimes GREAT), get paid, go home happy & live my life. Don't care about competition, or staying til 10 & making myself sick with stress.

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!

Hi. I’m an exempt employee (my boss’s only W-2 employee) and have two weeks of PTO. He’s making me use that for my physical therapy and doctors appointments, and I just got diagnosed with something related to my I jury (not work related) that could qualify me for temporary disability. How do I approach this and can I get fired for this? I have to take care of my body! And he’s insanely rigid, cheap, stubborn, and at this point I don’t even think he cares about me. I’m a very hard worker!

Hi All,
Really need some input. We have our new construction done by April 2023. Builder is giving us 28,000 credits which can be used towards closing cost and buy lock rate for 6 months from now and giving us the interest rate for 6.75% for 30 years from US bank. But I also spoke to credit union they give us 5 ARM for 5.5% but can lock rate in feb 2023. So should go with the US bank with 6.75% plus incentives or wait till feb 2023 and thn lock rates(us bank doesn’t give us ARM rates).

First off, let me say that I’m not American, pretend to be or understand being American. I’d like to know why is healthcare such a big deal? I understand it is important but why is it a big of a deal as it is? It’s ranked above so many other things in terms of importance. I ask because until I started working, I’ve never ever had any form of insurance and although unideal, never really struck me as such a big deal. Are Americans really going to doctors, hospitals and buying medication that much?
