My CD’s leaving my agency and an ACD’s being promoted to take on her duties over the next few months. What are some things I should be looking out for?

I hate you. I also love you.

That means there is an ACD role open. Go get it.

I think moving fro acd to cd is a lot less jarring than fro senior to acd. So there probably won’t be that much change. Just keep your eyes open on their behavior. If they don’t handle stress well, it might turn into a problem

Really depends on the agency. At mine they do the same shit just acds are expected to hit more home runs.

How is your relationship with the ACD? Is there something specific you’re worried about?

like

I actually have a very good relationship with them. I’ve never been at an agency for this type of transition (not that I’ve been in advertising for that long) so I’m mostly worried about the uncertainty.

Any chance that vacant ACD role is copy?

Hahahaha I wish but I’m still years from getting anywhere near an ACD role. Thanks for the good wishes though, sending good vibes your way too

Boils.

This post makes it seem like you are looking for problems before there are any?

Nah it was just me being a paranoid idiot making sure I don’t make any dumb mistakes from lack of experience.

Is the ACD only filling the role temporarily, or did they get promoted? If it’s a promotion, no big deal, but if you’re getting a new CD, pretty much anything can happen.
