Lateral move to a great shop or upward move to a pretty good one?

You’re a JR CW; shed that title and go onward and upward whenever you change jobs. Ask that ‘great shop’ for a title promotion and more money. If they like you they’ll give it to you.

Don’t stall your career with lateral moves! Just find an agency where you you think you’ll like to work for the next 1-2 years, then change again for another promotion.

This isn’t even a question- go to the best place. Going to a better agency is not a lateral move in any way. Moving up too quickly is dangerous anyway. It’s how people become ACDs years before they’re ready and then they end up working in shit agencies because there’s nowhere else to go. Just go to the best place and do the best workfor as long as you can.

You’re early in your career. The money and title will come later, and faster, if you have a great book

I think it really depends on the shops you’re choosing between- but I’d say great shop for sure. I mean waiting an extra year for a title in exchange for a shop that could launch your entire career in the right direction is totally worth it.

As someone who has hopped from shitty place to the next for titles, I wish I was picker off the bat. Congrats on even having the option though!

agency > title, if you can afford it.

As a junior - definitely a lateral move to a great shop!

It’s more about who you work for than the agency name. Work for the CD you like/trust more.

Also what a job title.
