It is not difficult, but definitely stressfull since you know your performance matter! Many will say you don't need any preparation, but honestly I prepped during the morning and took the test during the afternoon and it helped!

This was by far the most useful article I found! I listened to videos and read other blogs, but they didn't have any informations that are not in this article already. What I loved the most about this article is that it goes in detail about the game, and they even give you steps/strategies to structure your approach! For the first game (ecosystem), I followed the steps in the article and I did well!

Quit my job at Victoria’s Secret about a week before the Hulu doc came out connecting Les Wexler with Epstein. I watched the whole thing and I’m furious I worked for them. When I was hired there, I was under the impression things were really turning around and going to be positive. There was a total lack of culture and employees are treated awful. I asked a coworker about the documentary last week and was told we’re not allowed to talk about it. Couldn’t be more excited to go back to an agency.

Anyone else find their firm to be grossly inefficient and poorly organized? The variable always seems to end up being people’s time. Honestly, I’m not sure my firm would even turn a profit if people weren’t willing to work significant unpaid overtime. The answer is never to invest is better processes or technology enablers, or even strategical assess the ROI of people’s time (real time not fake billable hours). We chase every last RFP that lands, regardless of our expertise or chance of winning.
