If you’re on a local project in the burbs of your city would you opt to stay in a hotel 2-3 nights a week... or would you commute 1.5+ hours (one way) to/from home?
Returned from sick leave and found out from other people at the office I totally messed up on a project that I worked on prior to sick leave. Now that my reputation has been ruined and facing an upcoming negative performance review. No one at the office stood up for me despite of positive work done prior to COVID or wants to hear what I have to say. I m bothered by this gaslighting practice both professionally and personally. I felt I was designated as the scape goat. Continued.

Has anyone used the multi week option? Does that mean you can stay back at the client site each week instead of flying back home? How long can this be Done? Or has anyone booked long term apartments
Does anyone else experience this - no matter what you do, the client isn’t happy? How do you stay motivated? I always review with my leads before presenting recommendations to the client to get sign off/feedback. I’ve been rated a top performer / received great feedback from 5 years of other clients and internal teams, so I don’t think it’s that I’m slacking

Got asked today best way to gather our own (agency's) 1st party data. My first thought is develop our own pixel to capture user data (ip, email, device ID) and store that in a database, then use it later for targeting through a LiveRamp or similar. 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?

TRUE OR FALSE? In your workplace, raising concerns about unfair treatment, discrimination, or harassment tends to make things worse for the person raising a concern and put that person’s opportunities, role, reputation, and/or job at risk.
Hey all! Been doing a lot of unofficial strategy work in my official CM role and am now looking to step my game up and be a social/creative strategist. Have you done this transition+how?
I was recently let go. When I interview, should I be upfront about this, or should I keep it vague — “looking for new opportunities”? It seems like it will come up when people ask why I’m leaving.

Quick scenario: If I have a consulting offer from a different Big 4 that has a start date post-10/15, so that in theory I would not have to submit a 2 weeks notice until post-10/1 (bonus payout date) but I sign the offer pre-9/30, am I obligated (looking for both legal & professional standpoint) to tell PwC because it is with a competitor? This is essentially the exact same group at the other big 4
