Plaintiff’s counsel wants to include the following language (expressed for purposes of this post in CAPS) in my client’s standard release, but I can’t tell if I should take an issue with it - thoughts? “The amount of this settlement and terms of this settlement are confidential and may only be disclosed to Plaintiff’s attorneys, government agencies, or as otherwise required IN THE ORDINARY COURSE OF BUSINESS OR by law or court order.”

Been an art director for 12 months but grown in my role significantly & my boss told me my next promo was “political”. I’m managing well over 1.5M a year, 9 brands. Functioning with little to no oversight on a day-to-day basis, w/ only strategy checkins with my CD. 100% client facing. I’m managing 1 direct report and from 2-8 copy and art freelancers at any time. I feel like all my stretch goals are ACD focused. Yet still need SAD before ACD. Does this sound like an art director? Pharma agency.

Let’s make a Creative Complaints bowl. A bowl dedicated to venting about what the client/account/pm did today to piss us off.
Was forced out of a firm after more than a decade last year. Started my own law firm. Today I got a new client who called my old firm and fired one of my ex colleagues to come with me and told them they were coming to my firm. The colleague and I were close, but this is business and I don’t feel bad. Although I have been acquiring unhappy clients of my old firm for a while now, this was the first who was on a current retainer with the former firm. Life is much better on my own. :)

I recently accepted an offer which entails a nice signing bonus. I have a bf of like 1 year. He has, twice, kind of jokingly suggested that he expects me to pay for our trip we are taking before I start the new job. Is it selfish of me to like still request he split the cost of accommodation etc? I make more $ than him for context. And he usually treats me to din whenever we go out. It’s kind of a lot of $ for me to just do, and I’d rather like, invest it… but I don’t want to be selfish. Idk.
Someone sent me a copy of their resume and I know there test scores are inflated. It’s not my resume so I don’t care what they do but curious about how inflated test scores are detected when applying
Deciding on a stroller as a FTM. Read a lot of the comments in this thread. I’ll be having a winter baby in a very snowy place and won’t be doing walking outside until baby is maybe 5 months.
