Good for you. Take every last dollar they’ll give you.


Do you have a master's?


Damn. Basically the same as you but you’ve got $40k on me. Where are you?

Also, Digital ________??

Independent agency. And combined creative director and semi MD.

I want to be on track with you some day. Not to gloat over this but can you share some words of wisdom? I started at 23 too and in 12 years want to be doing that well.

@SS1 No post grad degree

@Analyst 1: My biggest success has been adding arrows to my quiver. I have a wide skill set and excel in client facing situations. I also have a good history across top agencies and have been rewarded for my loyalty (at my fourth job overall).

I’m a female, 14 years, deep digital experience (head of account and strategy), and I’m at $200k. Great for you but this pisses me off...

Svp1 - are you nyc?

As a side-hustle I'm the Communications Director of a campaign for Congress with our primary tomorrow. This morning our candidate (who is challenging a 30-year incumbent in one of the largest US cities) woke up to find somebody threw a brick through her windshield. She's a little shaken, but we're pressing forward. In brighter news, polls have us within two points of the incumbent with 28% still undecided and the Mayor voted for us.

I'm currently working as an intern at a foreign Food and Beverage distributor. Their system is outdated; it needs a complete redesign. All processes are done manually, there is no inventory count, countless mistakes etc.

Due to the location, similar salaries and the lack of local workforce, I was hoping for 5-7k pm.

Dad's a little guidance please. We bought a Chicco car seat with base and a stroller that accepts the car seat. . I've been reading that other brands (e.g Britax, MaxiC) do not have a base and remain in the car. So how to Britax car seat parents move/carry their infants around? Remove from the car seat and hand carry or prop into stroller?
Currently, I put the baby into the car seat and he stays in it and is carried around in it. Trying to understand the process if I were to buy a Britax.


Are there brands out there you think are killing it when it comes to their digital presence? Who and how?

Have some potential hits in BigLaw. But say I don’t particularly enjoy my current practice area (X) and would prefer to do another area (Y).

I’m here to vent… My boss keeps bragging about “not missing a day of work and going into office” when everyone was wfh in the beginning of the pandemic. It pisses me off every time he talks about it as if it’s an accomplishment. Now he emailed me saying “I tested positive so I won’t be able to come to office, and I don’t have remote access so this messes everything up for me.” DUDE?! Whose fault is it? How can you not have remote access still set up in 2022, in the 3rd yr of the pandemic.


Please can anyone refer me for role as Scrum Master?   I am looking for a new remote opportunity in the Houston, Dallas area. I have 4 years experience as an Agile PM/ Scrum Master; BSc in Mechanical Engineering, PSM I and MBA (Management). I’ll really appreciate it, Thank you!

Recently had some recruiters reach out to me about copywriter roles. I’m still pretty new to the industry, 2 yrs in, but I figured I’ll ask for a bit higher than what I’m used to. Soooo I asked for 70k. Then talked to a couple people who said that was too high for an intermediate. So my question is, should I be asking for less? I don’t want to switch jobs unless I get an adequate bump in my salary, but also don’t wanna reach too high and get passed over for someone else. Thoughts? 😫
