I’m a Canadian citizen but I never lived in Canada.
Currently in 🇨🇭 and planning to move to Canada for the experience. However it seems that the salaries are super low compared to the US or Switzerland. Is that because of the high taxes? Does $82k in Vancouver/Calgary allows you to live decently or am I gonna struggle? Current TC USD92k (CHF83k) and it would take a big hit by moving to Canada. But at the same time 🇨🇭 is one of the most expensive countries in the world.
What is the growth of ITES? What shall be the salary expectations with 1 year experience of ITES Admin role?
Defense attorney here. Currently annoyed at having to take appellate action up to state Supreme Court level on general personal jurisdiction bc judges either cant differentiate from the specific personal jurisdiction analysis or are protecting plaintiffs counsel. Is this an issue on a national scale?

23F. Trying to lower housing costs / find housing that is affordable to me in the longterm by buying multi family FHA and using the rental income to cover the majority of the mortgage while living in one unit, but FHA appraisals always ruin the deal (rental income comes in too low). Not sure what to do anymore bc every multi family house in my city has this issue. If you have real estate expertise in this area (or in other low cost longterm housing options) and can offer advice, please DM me!

Marketing has become so advanced since I was young. There are now sales funnels that can help you build relationships with your leads from start to finish so that when they need something from your business—and they will!—they'll come straight back to you without even thinking twice.
This is how work/life feels these days.
Received mail from RM of Accenture before joining.
“Things to do before you join:
At a later stage, you will be required to submit original documents with your wet signatures. You will receive more information as you progress.”
Can anyone share how much time is provided for submission of original documents and how it’s being done for new joiners with virtual onboarding?

What do you think the trajectory of psychedelic pharma in will look like in the next 5-10 years?
Is it crazy that I feel bad for very young creatives who will only know pharma adv? Especially strictly HCP.
Why are creatives in general advertising so obsessed with us? It’s not pharma’s fault they’re miserable.
Any good book recommendations for the industry? I’m about to be a manager for the first time and looking for any good reads to help me grow. TIA!
“Ok, client loved the ideas but doesn’t want to pay for them—we’re just going to do like 40 emails and some doximity posts”
“Let’s see if we can get agency investment and work some magic”
“Yeah, love it but we don’t have internal budget. What if we made it an email/social campaign?”
Just joined this bowl. Seeing a ton of “What is Agency X’s culture like...” posts.

Are there any editors in this group? Looking for some intel about different agencies and how they view and treat their editorial departments, as I’m looking for a change. I know many shops are known for being awful to ED, force them to do tagging and linking, or only have freelance staff. TIA!
I’m new to FCB health anything I need to know?
All these years my fellow humans and I have been communicating with each other the wrong way (non-human.. unhuman?)... Thank you advertising people for always reminding us to be “human-centric.”
For those who have survived a recession in this industry, can you tell us recession newbies how it went? Is pharma as recession proof as we are lead to believe?
Honestly I don’t think agencies are going to exist the way they do 15-20 years from now. The way they operate is designed for burn out for employees. I’ve worked at a total of 5 agencies across Chicago and NYC, and things end up always being toxic and the work life balance is just not sustainable nor justifiable when I look back. I mean look across this app and see what people post in regards to advertising, we deserve better.
Been offered an ACD position (promotion) at another agency that offers much better work/life balance BUT the ceiling on the offer is $155K. I know it’s not all about the money but that seems wildly low. Yay or nay?
