What are people’s thoughts on agencies being able to do “twice as much work with half the people”? I feel like everyone I know is working absurd hours and stretched unbelievably thin, and mentally to their breaking point.

Actually, you need finance people to get money from the clients to get everyone paid and to pay vendors for your productions. Chat with your producer about their importance.

Funny to hear someone at a place like Coors saying ad agencies are basically stuck in the past. Um, pass me a good craft beer. Make it a 4 pack.

A lot of industries have laid people off. This seems misleading. It’s more like the ad industry has changed. Because we’ve all had to change. How much you want to bet we’ll be back to where we were in a few years, production-wise?

Great article. Pragmatic and not sensationalist. The industry needs to come to terms with the fact that half a million dollar spots aren’t the solution anymore. Yet many are still enamored and thrive for this execution.

I think the industry needs to cut the fat on top, but not necessarily do away with big budget production. Do you want to be stuck doing banners forever? Eventually clients will want to do something bigger than some influencer shooting something on his/her iPhone.

I have an employee who is very sick with COVID (on life support in the ICU).

This is more complicated because they were out of town & he was hospitalized out of state, so it is hard for us to get anything to them in person. Also, I’m concerned about his team members and would love ideas to support them

Working as an audit staff in big 4 shared service centre. It's been 2 years. I really don't like what I do there, also it seems I won't like what I'll be doing there even after becoming senior. Thinking of leaving and joining industry once ACCA qualified. (One more paper left).

I'd like to stick to core accounting. Thoughts pls
