Freelance roles exist for all positions. The hours depend on the client and agency. There are no benefits like health etc. My freelance clients have ranged from 40 hr weeks for 2 weeks, to 16 hr weeks for 6 months, to standard 9-5 for several months. There is no standard. It's a cost measure that allows for teams to split with someone they don't like easily.

Yes there are freelance positions in media. Typically paid by the hour, but I've known digital buying freelancers that got a salary structure. No benefits, but at a certain amount of hours you could qualify. Depends on the company.

Just interested in how various other pensions work!

Got asked today best way to gather our own (agency's) 1st party data.

No idea if this is right or there's a better way or where I'd start my research. Anyone want to point me in some sort of direction?

I feel like I’m not learning anything at my internship. It’s easy work and good pay though. Should I try to take on another project or multiple to try to gain more experience? But I was told it’ll be much harder and I would be expected to work longer hours and managers will be rough on me. Is this worth it when I go to school full-time as well while trying to balance a part time job? (The internship at D is expected to be part time but they might make me work more).

A colleague shared with me the presentation they have prepared for their promotion case. I worked with them on multiple projects during the year and I can clearly see that some of the claims on the deck are wild exaggeration or lies. For example, managed changes in scope for Project X including contract changes. Plot twist: there never was a change of scope for Project X and the contract is exactly the same. How can people be so dishonest? How far can you go before truth catching up?

I am almost 2 years into my H1B. They haven’t started my I140 but when I joined told me that I would be eligible in a year of which I am coming up on in this Oct. I got a new offer today but they told me that they would apply I140 after a year from when I join. The pros of the new one is TC more than 18k with sign-on of 15k (not sure clauses for this) and better wrk-life bal). My question is, how long into H1B is it advisable to have an I140 applied for. Would 3-4 years into my H1B be too late?
