Do vendors provide the agency with a pre-pro book prior to the shoot if it’s a simple drop kit, taking head?
Not sure if there’s a need for it since it’s not a complicated shoot (single cam, direct shot to talent answering questions) but wanted to get a sense. Client wants a meeting the day before the shoot to talk about the production (which we have done a few times already), so not sure if it makes sense to have a formal PPB for this meeting. Thoughts?
How would you spend a few days off between jobs in or close to NYC? Probably would be mostly solo
Split classes take away joy! We have 6-7 classes at each grade level and they split 1-2 into the remaining 5 so we can have a 5 day schedule. Big classes plus the classroom culture homeroom teachers work so hard to achieve are ruined. Advice? (Plus we are told to "not be negative" by admin.)

Has anyone else been so stressed from a deadline that the couldn’t eat or sleep? I’ve averaged probably 3 hours of sleep the past week (and most are 0). Then I get to around midnight and realize I haven’t had anything to eat, but I’m not hungry. This is my first true in-charge assignment, and there’s been little communication from above. And I just got a mini-lecture on how it’s my fault we’re behind. So hearing that after not eating or sleeping is about to send me into a full-blown breakdown
I gave 2 rounds of interview for Citi , first technical round taken by India office and second round taken by Singapore folks. Interview was OK i would say. What are the chances of getting call from HR and when came I expect it. And how much should be my ask

Swiggy vs Zomato?
Someone explain the practice of sending a more junior associate an email you’ve entirely prepped and drafted and saying “please send to so and so and copy me”. Like, wut? Why don’t you just send it yourself? Honestly so obnoxious and ethically questionable tbh like okay I’m gonna bill our client for this?

I think I’m on the verge of burnout. I was definitely burned out at my previous agency, recently started at a new one and the energizing newness has worn off. I’m in another cycle of tight deadlines, lackluster guidance/management, understaffing, overloading and more. My confidence is low & my quality of work is taking a hit due to these circumstances and I fear my job is in jeopardy due to what feels like no fault of my own but the all due to the circumstances. Any tips or encouraging words?
What are signs you know a CCO is under-qualified? Context, I come from the larger well know holding company agencies (good and bad) and now am at a mid-size digital agency where the CCO is self appointed. I see the good in everyone, but this person is not feeling experienced. But what are any clear signals you’ve seen in over-promoted creative leadership?

Publicis Sapient fish, what office/account are you on and do you like what you’re doing?
Whether you are new to art direction or you've been a pretty polished designer for a while now, it's imperative that we don’t become stagnant (especially during this time) and continue to push our abilities forward. I'm throwing down a monthly challenge to progress in one of my weaker skillsets. Are you up for doing the same?
Recently, a fellow creative friend of mine sold a TV Show idea to a network. Half by an orchestrated accident and half by pure genius. Have any of you attempted something similar? How did it go?
Today, FCB Chicago let go of one of three creative directors who are people of color. Yay for diversity!!!
An ACD recently has been treating me like I’m more junior than mid-level (I have 4 years under my belt). What’re ways to rework this frame of thinking/ the tasks that have since been handed to me from them?
What is the expected time you need to give your employer when quitting at creative director level? I’m assuming “two weeks” doesn’t apply at this level.
How do I help give my copywriting partners ideas more... Legs?
So far the ideas have been ver much one off executions. I want to help these concepts become... Concepts. So we look better
today, in an effort to encourage employees to RTO (it’s been a loose return, that almost no one has obliged to), my boss said “the kitchen has so many snacks & food, you can make a peanut butter sandwich here, or even eggs!”
For 3 years, I’ve been able to cook in the nude (while on a call!).
The lack of self awareness in our species is astounding.
