My boss doesn’t seem to be happy with my work. I am strong on strategy and brand, when I ask related questions at kickoffs, they make comments like:”nobody cares.” Or “We just need to get it done.” Or “The client doesn’t know what is a brand.”
What would you do if you were me? Talk to them about it, or just start looking?

Is your boss an ECD or CCO? If you can work under a different ECD you should ask. If it’s the CCO then I’d start looking. You’ll only experience roadblock after roadblock with his defeatist attitude.

We are a small firm, so they (this person and their partner) are the only ECD pair I am reporting, above them there is only CCO. Both ECDs have been working in the firm for many years and everyone speaks highly of them. I am not sure how worth it is for me to bring it up to the CCO.

Yeah that’s a big red flag - their burnout could also trickle down to your performance and set you up to fail.

For your own sake, it would be good to have a conversation with them about it, and start looking for a switch of teams/company if they continue to dismiss you.

Staffing several associates from different practice areas together to do a lot of different things on what was a very small case to begin with is so cool!

The client feels we understand their business, our associates ramp up their hours, and our firm boosts its revenue! Corporate clients, after all, usually pay up without asking questions.

Remember: You can turn even the smallest case into a multi-million case.
