yes but without teachers and most likely mediocre bosses. they are awesome for juniors tho. boutique agency life’s mantra is sink or swim.

Wut? So not like that at all. That would be easy.

This is now the second agency that I've worked at in a row where my Head of Production has asked me to cancel/postpone my vacation that I requested off months in advance because the Production Department is understaffed and there are too many projects that need to be assigned. Should I go to HR? Why is the Production Department any different than others (AM, PM, Creative) where they are allowed to go on vacation in the middle of a project with no questions asked?
