Looking for some perspective and advice. I’ve moved to an in-house analytics organization for a large fortune 10 company and have prior experience with a big 4 and a startup as head of analytics & data science.

Received an offer at an advertising agency for a senior role (slightly more money) and torn on taking the offer or not. This would be my first stint with an ad agency. Potential reasons against: 1) risk? I’m in the safe side already 2) longer hours? 3) less upside growth potential?

Reeeeally depends on the agency—is it part of a holding company?

Yes, agency is about 1000 employees, part of a large holding company of others.

Definitely longer hours. Potentially moved around from project to project.

I wouldn’t go to an agency from where you are . Longer hours , and unless it’s a Merkle or similar potentially low fi analytics work
