Most of my freelance work over the past three years has been cannabis industry related. I was hired in the beginning of November in-house for a growing brand. (pun not intended) It feels like the wild west where anything goes and most people seem to be winging it.

So much potential to do great work, but nothing I would show or be proud of. I did better work as a consultant.

Anyone else working on the Brand side of the cannabis industry? Thoughts?

My sentiments exactly. Though, I’ve enjoyed the work, it’s not worth adding to my portfolio yet. Curious to know what brand(s) you’ve worked with.

Update: I am no longer working in-house. My services were no longer needed. 🤣😂😉

For those with company equity or unit incentive programs, is it common to forfeit vested equity upon voluntary departure? Explained as a “retention tool” but essentially held captive by a payout since the contract says equity doesn’t fully vest at 100% until the company is resold. If I quit at any time before a sale date, I lose all of the equity that has already vested. This was offered to a few employees in leadership but feels like not that great of a deal to me. Is this normal?

We’re looking to produce a large integrated brand campaign in 2022. Right now, me and our creative director are meeting with large agencies (ogilvy, McCann, etc). However, we are also thinking about working with a smaller creative agency and looking for a third party to help with the media buying (out of home, etc).

I’d love to hear your thoughts on both options and if you have any recommendations (specifically around a media buying partner). Thank you!

My org is rebranding, and in short, the new visuals suck. My sr designer told me my entire team wants to quit. Personally, so do I. Leadership made all the decisions without involving me, and has basically told me my job is not to have an opinion but to execute on the new direction. This is hilarious to me given that last year we were pushed to become more strategy-driven.

I know we all probably just need to leave. But in the mean time im losing my sanity trying to do my job. Any advice?
