Just work remotely for a NY agency, you’ll get paid a lot better


I second working remote especially from an EST or CST agency, my day being done at 3:00 most days is really great


I think you got them all lol a piece of advice, don’t waste your time with LS, trust me


Thanks for the heads up!

Media monks has a presence here. Not sure if it’s an office but they mark location as PDX sometimes.
Studio Mega
(I’m aware these skew toward design)

Some really small ones (like idk if they even exist anymore)
Empire Green

Then there’s like Nike, adidas, keen, Google, gerber, intel, autodesk, Wacom, etc


Thank you so much. Adding these to my list.


Don't bother with Thesis. They lost a huge account in the last two months of 2022 due to an error in an RFP and laid off a bunch of their creative staff without warning as a result.


Oof. Thanks for the info.

It really depends on where you're at in your life. W+K will offer the most comprehensive and complete total compensation package. Goos Luck! :)

Obviously, a job there would be awesome. I’m going to try to connect with a few people I know there or who recently left.

Senior Project Manger Salary at Wieden + Kennedy?


Hello my sharks 🦈 from IBM 😇
I have a query with regards to HRA deduction that we can claim as non taxable.

So in my offer letter, it is written that max 50% of basic salary can be used for house rent.

My basic salary is 7,00,000. So how much deduction can I show for HRA, considering the The Income Tax Act Section 10-13A?

I want to reduce the tax as much as possible through HRA, but I believe there is a limit upto which deductions will be considered.

Thanks in advance guys🙂
