Client hasn't shown up for work the last 2 days due to an "unplanned sales trip to Vegas". Sounds legit
Does anyone else have a tough time with walkthroughs? Not enough time to prepare, PY documentation is shit, client processes r complicated so tough to understand, documentation is difficult,
What should an account planners portfolio look like? Do you guys create websites with client work examples? Or just share briefs and/strategy docs upon request? I just wouldn’t want to put an actual brief into a public portfolio as that feels a little weird, but maybe that’s just me. We’re not “creatives” so it’s a bit different, but would love to hear approaches.
rant - Im on a local project that goes past 9pm everyday, and the rest of my team flies in. Why do project managers just assume I can work all night long? My dinner isn’t paid for here. I have a life
First due diligence project starting on Monday. Any advice from wise DD fish on the best ways to make it successful?
Client walked in on me jumping to touch the ceiling. No big deal I guess but kind of embarrassing. I think the ceiling is nine feet bec. its taller than the eight foot ceiling in my house.
How many of your projects involve working with competitors? Not just working for the same client, but working on same project/workstream. How is the dynamic?
I just got an email from a recruiter asking ME if I knew of any technical project managers that I could recommend to HIM. 🤯
Accidentally walked into the men's bathroom at the client site today (I'm a woman). Male client was in the stall and pretty sure he knows it was me (had heels on). How do I overcome this? 😩
What’s the ideal ratio of agency to client people at a dinner? I have always felt and been taught that any more than 2:1 is too many but my team now does 6 or even 8:1 constantly and says that’s good.
Project doing well, have good friends around, everything seems to be just fine. But you know you are deep inside broken because amazing people that used to in your life are gone. How do you recover ?
Do staffing teams generally give a heads up if a client requires drug testing or has anyone ever been surprised on day 1 on-site?
Dear flirty (married) consultant dude: My name is, no. My firm is, no. My project is, no. You need to let it go. You need to let it go.
What is Accenture non-compete policy? Client wants to hire me full time and to my understanding client can hire me but not for the same role that I am performing right now. Anyone has any experience?
New level of gtfo for client response to audit request: Sent in April with no response. Followed up today, got this response: "I guess I thought the first email was a phishing exercise and deleted it"
Two weeks left on long term client where I've developed a relationship, and I'll likely have to let it go. Struggling to deal. Been almost a year with her, fucking feelings....
In my office we have a very small number of black people. I don’t know the exact numbers but it doesn’t seem like more than 10. All of them I know >3 are on a personal improvement plan for very basic reasons. One faced blatant racism and was placed off the project. Therefore it was harder for this person to find a new project. How to investigate if this is correlates with microagressions and discrimination towards black people? Any ideas? How to convince non POC that this is a problem?
Night king is like that partner who is “supposedly “ the most important dude on the project. Rarely shows up and when he does, tries to take things under his control and fucks up the entire project!
Not sure why people are complaining so much about first year analysts. You were there once. Everyone has a learning curve. #playnice
Looking to move to London from the US and was wondering if anyone can shed some light on the negotiating process when going through an inter-company transfer and how much negotiating power you have since it’s still the same company and it’s a move initiated by you

Hiking to reach the top is such a thrill
How do you approach working with an assistant? For example, how do you establish boundaries and expectations from the beginning? What are your daily checkins with them?
Anyone take mental health leave given all of the anti-Asian violence, racism, and frankly murder? It is so hard to focus at work when all of this is happening...
My script is going into production. My AD is working remotely from across the world and now apparently I'm not going on shoot. Two more senior creatives who have nothing to do w it are. This broke me
Asked this a while back but got few answers - Asian makeup YouTuber recs? Don’t care if it’s not in English! Specifically for single eyelids
Which creditcard(s) do you have and why
I started a new job back in October and after a few weeks in, I came to find out the job was a lot different than what I thought it was gonna be. I like the company as a whole, but my position is not for me and is causing a lot of stress and anxiety. There aren’t any other positions at the company open that would fit my background so I am unsure what to do?
I also want to note that this job is in a different time zone so I have been working 11-8PM which adds to my stress with late nights.
Looking to find a good accountant to setup and manage rental property. We own a two family in NYC, live in one and rent the other.
Got quoted 1,600$ to set-up LLC (rental & development) and get things in place + charge of 25% of incremental tax returns delivered by the accountant (if they get us 40k in additional returns they can keep 10k). This sounds pretty expensive.
Thoughts? What does your accountant charge? any reference to share?
Anyone else really believe there is no other city with the walkability and convenience of Chicago? If you live in River North you can literally walk to anything and everything you ever need.
Some habits are just so hard to break
Seeing MAS and other ad schools promote online classes. Sorry just not the same, hope the prices are lower.
Creative Partner - ACD - Copy
Hi I am a freelance ACD/Senior (Art) and looking for a creative partner to team up with for when my current partner is not available. During the spring/summer months my partner is not available for additional gigs or for anything in PST, so it would be great to find someone who's down to pick up some extra work.
Never used this before so just DM me and we'll go from there :)
Also I know it says I'm a CD I can't change that right now
