Digitas isn’t a glowing name on your resume. Remember that when you’re negotiating. explain that you’ve learned enough to move up and acknowledge the agency isn’t the best place to form skills and grow with the current planning department.

CD1 that’s terrible advice. I didn’t realize people thought so little of Digitas, but all the same I wouldn’t put down my employer. It’s a bad look. Focus on the work you’ve done. Even if it isn’t a client with a lot of shine, as long as the work you did was solid, insightful, and / or interesting you should be fine. Let your work define your ability and talent not the rep of your agency.

Thanks for the input all! Do you have a ballpark figure about what I should be asking for? It's a 100 person strong agency in Chicago.

Does anyone know how you can create a pivot table that results in calculations being performed from that pivot table, where if the pivot table changes, resulting in more/fewer rows, it moves the formulas up or down depending on the additions/removals? Basically, have a dataset, trying to select all rows where the answer in one column is Yes and answer in another column is (for example "X"), and multiplying the amount in another column by 16%.
