Interviewed with EJ, RJ, and Stifel as a new advisor. which to pick? EJ offering way more base up front with small goodknight to start. RJ’s fancy AMP training program is just slap a yellow pages down and start dialing with little to no practice building training. Stifel seems similar to RJ, with less hidden customer fees, more flexibility on customizing your fee schedule per customer, and there is a possibility of the lead FA in the office retiring out soon with his 120m book.

Latest episode posted! “Generals in the Making” is a gem of a leadership book and should be required reading for any early or mid-level professional. The book is an engrossing examination of how four army generals of World War II, each a major player in their own right, navigated the uncertain and tumultuous pre-war years in their careers. sphttps://podcasts.apple.com/us/podcast/black-market-leadership/id1523238553?i=1000533915181

Going to 3% this year. Those who’ve been, how do you recommend getting the most out of it - for both myself & my company, who’s sending very few? Never been & know very little in terms of specifics.
I’m sure this has been asked before—but how do you get through work when going through a breakup with a long term SO? I have a new male boss & cant really tell him what’s going on. I’ve been taking PTO scattered. I live alone and NYC Covid winter alone is already feeling so overwhelmingly sad and lonely on top of everything else.

My male boss takes the easy way out and re-uses “strategies” over and over, or he takes my work for one account and shoddily uses it for another. He gets frustrated with me when I point this out or question how he’s approaching a client problem. Others in the agency now come to me because they don’t like working with him. I don’t want to work for him anymore, but I also don’t think I want to leave the agency. I do get a lot of autonomy but seeing his output compared to mine is so frustrating.

I’m at an agency I’m really happy with. The work, the people, and some potential for growth, but NOT the pay. It was hard finding this job a year ago but there’s SO much out there now that I’m tempted to look for better pay. Should I even bother looking or close my eyes and stay where I’m happy?

I’ve been asked to be a PM and Account Director in a hybrid role and now have people telling me that I’m not driving the team’s overall vision in line with client goals. I get so stuck in the day to day and have never in 6 months been given one positive piece of feedback. I am truly in shock and starting to feel depressed. What books, blogs or people do you recommend that I go to for help with managing teams? The situation is unfair but I need help to address how I can better manage.
No matter how many years I have been in this industry, I always just beat myself up over the most minor of mistakes. Even when I apologize and I’m told “it’s fine!” or otherwise reassured that it isn’t a big deal, privately I just get overwhelmed with shame. I have had bad work environments that were unforgiving of any error regardless of severity, so it’s left that mark. How do others just shrug and think, “I make mistakes sometimes, it’ll be fine”?
Goal within next 3 years is to get into Brand (client) side at the Manager level.

HR from a brand-side Associate role JUST got back to me with 3rd interview after a month. Did the interview and think I’ll get offered the role. It’s contract and 10% salary decrease but has huge growth potential as it is a smaller company with a lot of exposure to higher ups.
Which would you choose?? Help!
