You know you did a good job when the client simply smiles at your work and fist bumps you! 🤛🏼
Newbie question… Am I allowed to bill for reading internal emails about a matter? As the only first year on most of my matters I’m just cc’d on a ton of emails with the more senior folks strategizing. I read them all so that I don’t look dumb if asked to do something. But will the client pay for my time just reading emails? If so, what’s the best way to phrase this?
Is going client/brand side as amazing as people say it is? The way that people describe in house production teams seems like it’s way too good to be true...
How do you get your partners to provide feedback? I’m a senior associate and feel like I have been stagnant in my career lately. I’m not learning new skills and not getting any additional responsibilities. I have a hard time getting my partners to review the work I do for them and often by the time they do, they’ve changed the scope of assignments or decided they no longer need it. Everything I do lately feels like I have just wasted my time and the client’s money
I left a boutique consulting company because I felt under utilized. Joined a larger supposedly hip consultancy with local market model with great expectations and am finding myself let down by the experience - the client, work, teamwork and collaboration, technical content is not per what was promised and feels like I am back to my b4 days. I was a fool to fall for the kumbaya in consulting crap - I am best developing products with great teams. Industry looks down on me. What are my options?
Shortest duration ever on a project?
Hey there! I work in a mid-size full service agency with a growing marketing team. We currently don't have a CD due to our size and current client portfolio, but that's a role I'd love to step into when the time is right and my management is on board with that. Any advice on how to prepare for that kind of role without changing agencies? Or anyone open to mentoring me? I'd love to learn from a CD or ACD to see what they're doing and what I can bring without leaving my team!

I have awesome creative work from a client that has fallen into scandal. Specifically, they were a recently acquired beverage company who’s CEO was in a sexual scandal and then the company went into layoffs and rushed get more investor money to try to salvage the business. Needless to say, it didn’t work but the brand got sold to some super conglomerate. All this to say, do I put the good work in my portfolio? Do I keep it password protected? What would you do?

I’ve smoked unfiltered Pall Mall for 14 years and two months. Before COVID I’d smoke 1/2 ppd. During COVID I’ve spiked to 2 ppd and sometimes smoke during video conference calls. Now my lungs need breathing room, but I can’t find a low-tar, low-nicotine cigarette that gives me rich tobacco flavor. Any suggestions?
Hello! A senior associate that I work for is expecting and she will be going on parental leave soon. She has been a great mentor to me and so I wanted to get/send her a gift congratulating her on the new baby once she goes on her leave. Any ideas for a gift? (We aren’t incredibly close so it doesn’t seem as easy as shopping for a friend/family member who just had a baby, if that makes sense) TIA!
