Lots of reason can be behind that... Years of experience outside RB, performance, country, CC, internal contributions, ability to generate business, etc. It is hard to tell really without the specifics. I would encourage you to talk to your mentor, he may be in a better place to provide some advice.

Man, I hope this is the same Principal you are referring to RB. Just kidding, there are likely a bunch of reasons as Principal1 mentioned. Beyond talking to your mentor you could also have a chat with your colleague and/or HR to ask for advice.

I recently joined the brand side as a junior client and I’m really struggling in creative reviews to not sound like a junior moron.

I realize creatives will take more senior opinions more seriously, so I really just want to add something to the conversation. I do take notes during the review and am learning the brand day by day, but feel like I sound young and dumb when I just agree with my colleagues
