On a project with higher level teams, and my partner and I can’t seem to crack the brief or keep up. Can anyone else relate? Will it always feel this way?

It's normal and part of the process. Just keep trying.

It’s pretty normal! Don’t be scared to share your work with other and get opinions. Even brain storm with other creatives.

You're there to give it your best shot. The senior team is there to crack it - I love when there's a few teams on a project because it means there's a safety in taking risks with your creative. Have fun. There's room for the left field. Let the seniors worry about the stress of cracking it 😅
You'll get the strategic thinking down with time. Depending on your agency you're either blessed with a one page brief, or a torturously unhelpful 60 page slide deck (like myself) - in this case go through it and highlight the key points. What's the ask, what does the brand want to say, who are they saying it to, is there a key line of strategy that's insightful or interesting. Gather these and put them together on your own document.

If its still challenging. Then there may be an issue with a strategy. Ask for a call with your CD or the strategist to clarify the key points.

Planning to quit and start my own boutique consulting company. Are there any restrictions with regards to soliciting my old clients? My employment agreement says I can’t solicit business with “designated clients” for 12 months after termination. Does that mean ANY client of EY or ones that I have served? Probably every company in the world is a client of EY in some capacity.

Hi fishes, officially have a 1 year work ex at ZS now. It's still weird that I am still assigned only this one project for that long and my manager doesn't even need a feel to give me another project.

I have no problem with less workload , but the learning part has perpetually stopped on this project attributed to its cyclic nature. Also i am afraid they will promote me late, even if it's their fault that they didn't give me any other project on side.

Hi everybody! 😊
I've been working as a Junior Analog Design Engineer for a year and half.

Should I wait and build up a few more years of experience before accepting a Senior role or should I jump in and work to fill the gap?
Next year, there will be an important deadline for the project I'm working on and my resignation could be critical for the team, how would you deal with it?
