Cigarettes, definitely. Alcohol not so sure. But whatever your moral objection is, you can always make it known and go from there. If your boss is decent they’ll work to accommodate you as much as they can, even if they can’t shield you 100%

@ACD2 Everyone’s gonna be different and “you’re in advertising” either disregards these differences or suggests they should just cope. I refuse anything tied to the military industrial complex. A Muslim colleague I know would not want to work on a beer brand, whereas I’s be stoked to do so. No judgements, just our personal beliefs. @OP To answer your question, it depends. If you’re at a big agency, I wouldn’t bring it up unless they try to assign that brand or a project for that brand to you, or it’s a part of the “group” you’re on where you’re expected to help out on it.

Looking for some perspective. Any one here ever find out their SO was having an affair or know someone that has gone through that? Did you end up giving them another chance or just end it? How did things turn out? Recently discovered that my spouse had an emotional/physical one during a traveling project in what I thought was a happy marriage. It’s been rough so was interested in hearing other stories/perspectives of people who have been in this situation. Never thought it would happen to me.

Prayers that I can keep my mouth shut at the office today ladies. Had an ambush meeting yesterday that completely blindsided me and my boss with feedback from my client. And of course, I'm scheduled to work with the client in person today. I'm still furious, but have a meeting this afternoon to verify the feedback since it was 4th hand. If it's true, I'm probably quitting because the client hasn't even indicated there's a problem and I can't do two-faced relationships.

My team has started ignoring my messages. I’m not sure what I did; I’ve been getting good feedback on my performance, I don’t message excessively often, and I don’t think I’ve done anything to cause social discomfort. The project is busy, but honestly workloads have been lighter than they used to be because we brought in additional resources, so that doesn’t explain the shift in communication styles. I used to feel like a useful team member but now I feel like an annoyance. What should I do?
