Advertising

If we’re all complaining about the same things, then who’s the problem? Upper management who has no insight? Or UM who just don’t care?

To me the problem is money--or maybe better said, value. Clients are supposed to value an ad agency for our knowledge and our style of work--a particular voice. In 2018 clients only value quick turnaround and low budgets (because they see our fees and markups and bullshit, because they figure anyone can do advertising), not our "expertise." The other problem is we undercut each other so we can stay open and not lay off more people than we already have. And we tell clients we can "do it all" even if we cant (or dont really want to). So we dont respect or value each other either. And our particular voice goes away.
