I’m a bit stuck. Started at an agency almost a year ago, but mainly adaptation work for one big global client: and I don’t know how to pull that work together for my book in a way that makes sense.

I am at a boutique firm and primarily work with two partners. With one I feel like I love what I do as I have autonomy, client contact and am not afraid to screw up. If that continued I can see myself staying at this firm for the long term. On the other hand when I work with the other, I am not in the loop on anything, feel like an idiot and wonder whether I’ll be around for long. To keep it short I am a non traditional 2nd year associate who was a non-atty in the same industry for 5 yrs prior.

Figuring out on my own could take over an hour

Hello creative directors. Today I learned about a situation at a well-known agency. A very senior account executive changed creative work in a deck, and that led to the work not selling. The creatives learned about it in the preso. What would you do in the situation? Would you go up against somebody way above you on the ladder? Going to the CCO apparently is not possible politically.
