DDB just went through a bunch of leadership changes and has come out of it much more focused and inclusive. I was waffling a bit before but I feel really re-energized about what we're doing now.

@Ogilvy1 That’s awesome. Thank you so much! Yeah, my family is Japanese and I spent a lot of time growing up there so it’s always been something in the back of my mind. I interned in Tokyo before and loved it but wasn’t sure what things were truly like for adv people working full-time. Maybe a few years of trying it out would be nice, but it is definitely tough weighing out the pros and cons since WLB and pay are things I really value. Thanks again!

Come work with us! Our PM team is bomb, Would Recommend.

I accepted an offer from another consulting firm and my H1B visa has also been transferred. I have not joined the new role yet. However I had been interviewing with another firm and expecting an offer I know this is not the best practice but is it allowed to accept another offer even though H1 transfer has been approved through another employer? If I accept the second offer does this raise any red flags with USCIS as they potentially see 2 almost consecutive visa transfer requests?

During the panny, my agency moved a handful of us to a different office with no choice. Basically said we’d be fired if we didn’t comply. When we asked if we would ever have to move to the new city, we were given no answers for months. Now, they’re saying back to office in September and I have a feeling they’ll be expecting us to move. Should I ask for money to move? I personally can’t afford to and told them from the start I can’t move. Also, I really don’t want to leave my S/O. Help!
