I’ve experienced that patience is truly a virtue in making a career, but how do you all cope with ignorance by sr managers and obvious quality breaches?

Document everything. Be professional and let them dig their own grave.


Thanks, that’s a good advice because at some point there will be a review or an audit, but also because keeping track of it is handy when advancing. Much appreciated.

Not sure if you’re looking for CYA advice or more proactive suggestions, but I agree 100% with a comment above that you need to keep good notes with as much detail as you can. By being at the center of everything makes it easy to be someone’s (everyone’s?) scapegoat, but it also gives you access to all of the details to CYA. Be professional when sharing documentation - refute without accusing.

If you’re looking for more proactive, coaching up advice, tread lightly.


Part of the role (most roles) is informing, educating, empathy, and communicating well.

Anyone go from PM’ing to Producing? What are some of the similarities and differences? Challenges during the transition?


More often than not, PM owns the tasks of ensuring their team and agency log their time, but I argue that it is not our sole responsibility. Finance and Leadership often stray away from penalizing offenders. Other than including job numbers in subject lines, statuses and meeting invites, how do you encourage your teams to log tine weekly (regularly)?


I’m an AE that wants to make the switch over to PM. But I also want to leave the agency life some point soon. Anyone have any advice? I’m also not sure how different PM responsibilities are in house vs. an agency


For those managing the workflow of a small in-house creative team, how do you deal with overwhelming number of projects that come in? As well as work redundancy? I’m new in creative ops so looking for advice!


I was onboarded in a different role. Ended up being pushed as PM (because my business experience). Now I’m thriving on the role and few months now in the role I’m going to ask for a raise, since I got a crazy responsibility bump but 0 pay bump. Do you guys think asking 30% is too much ?


Hi - I’ve been in account management for about 7 years looking to move over to project management. Any advice? Or anyone know of any roles/jobs. TIA :)


What does your workload look like and or how many projects are you managing at any given time? Just wondering, as I have been interviewing and companies seem alarmed at how much work I am managing

What are your tips, tricks or best practices for creating project estimates? We’re often asked to provide costs when we know very little, so how do you estimate?


Hi! My company just experienced some downsizing and Im looking for a new job. If anyone has any contacts for a Creative Project Manager position I would greatly appreciate it! My experience has been in ad agencies, higher ed and government projects. I don't mind expanding and mixing it up, but Im great with creative projects. Thank you!!

NYC - 5 yrs PM experience at tech startups / unknown agencies. Unhappy at my company, want to move to a more established ad agency. Struggling to break into it. Any tips please?

I started a new full-time job 3 months ago. My teammates only escalate small mistakes to my boss; I rarely get positive feedback on the things I go above and beyond on. I have a review coming up this week, and I don’t feel secure. A role that I applied to pre-covid became available. I got a verbal offer last week. Should I leave a full-time gig for a temp-perm one? I’ve killed myself to implement constructive feedback but I’m scared it wouldn’t be enough.


Wanting some advice. I manage higher up’s close friend and they are not qualified to do the work. I have been trying to steer the person in the right direction for weeks, & they don’t take feedback well and blame others. There was a particular meeting where this happened in front of others & they got frustrated and this got back with my boss and I’ve been told I need to work on empathy. The irony here is in past reviews my strongest feedback has been my relationship building skills.


What’s the best way to get in touch with producers to get commercial photo jobs? Is there a specific “type of pitch” strategy that works best?


Would there be any PMs interested in speaking with me about their career including: certifications earned, software experience, skills needed to succeed, etc? I'm thinking about making the move from Advertising Account Executive to Project Manager, but don't really know what online resources are fruitful for that position.


What are some good goals for PM/Producers? Writing my self assessment and am terrible at brainstorming this type of thing...


My team is hiring a Senior Scrum Master and Agile Coach for a long term contract (2 years) who would oversee three dedicated scrum teams. It’s an in house role within the Fintech sector. MarTech experience strongly desired and must be able to manage up/influence across teams. Role is based in Orange County but remote to start—at least through May. Please DM if interested and can send you the JD + connect you with the hiring manager. Must have A-CSM or higher/equivalent.
