Go with the ACD role. Explain to your current agency that it’s an opportunity too good to pass up and see if they counter. Do it with grace and frame it around your career growth.

Does anyone else in NA feel like our growth strategy is strange? From what I’ve seen, the failure rate for experienced senior hires (D+) in consulting is pretty high (>50%) and it feels like we’re going all in on this.

Definitely understand there are area where we don’t have internal expertise but IMO, the resources devoted to hiring vs. retention are totally skewed and this strategy is actually putting more strain on internal resources.
