I would read inanimate office objects late night conversations about what happened today. Things like "magic mike the Magic Mouse said 'yeah, my art director owner got back from that creative review and just smacked the shit out of me. I could hear rage against the machine coming from his ear buds and a soft muttering of fuck this shit fuck this shit'".

thoughts on Deloitte’s change management competency? are there better solutions within their Human Capital practice?

I find myself looking for a new role in agency / production company biz dev. I co-founded a creative production agency back in 2010. Grew it to a staff of 80 FTE, creating strategic content-driven campaigns for brands, tv networks, streamers, platforms, publishers etc. We developed and produced original TV as well. Around 2016 we positioned the company for sale and then sold in Jan 2019. After going over to the acquirer in 2020, I’m now free for the first time in a long time. What to do?

Hey everyone, I just graduated from a non target and have a job lined up in Deals at a big 4 firm in a couple months. Really wanted to go into IB during undergrad but didn’t utilize LinkedIn as I should’ve to make connections. I’m doing that now even though I know it’s not recruiting season. I really want to land in IB w/o doing the whole accounting thing first. Shooting for MM IB. Is there anything I can do now to get in? I’ve been studying for my CPA in case I have to do deals first. Thanks!

I’m a veteran so to me it’s weird when people pass each other in the office and they don’t greet each other. They just look down or pretend to scratch their face to block you from their vision and keep walking. Is this just a corporate thing?

I’ve been waking up between 2 and 4 am pretty much every night for the past 3 months. After that in the best case scenario I’d get some intermittent naps before I need to get up in the morning. This is despite following most of the rules for good sleep (ear plugs, room temperature, early dinner, no alcohol, no screens, daily exercising for 40-90 minutes, sunlight during the day). My oura deep sleep duration is extremely short. It coincided with my ACL surgery, but it’s been 4 months already!

I was working in agencies for the last 5 years. What has shocked me most upon reflecting on my time in ad world is how everything at an agency is about ME.

How can I get something for my book? How do I win an award? How do I rank amongst the other creatives?

There’s no loyalty to your agency or bond with your team. It’s just what can I do to get ahead. The juxtaposition between this and now working client side has been so glaring.
