Polite way to ask about client turnover during an interview?

I don't think that there's any problem with asking how the agency's relationship is with the client, or how long the client teams have been in place

I like that phrasing! Thanks!

How is the client relationship? Is it more project based or annual retainer?

You don't. Watch AgencySpy. It's not hard to see what clients they have and how long, in addition to recent wins and losses before your interview. Agencies don't PLAN to have client turnover.

Asking about project vs retainer is okay though.

So I recently started a position with Fox. When it was presented to me in interview, I was told I would be working aligned with Fox Sports & Entertainment, not so much News. Now that I’m here, I’m seeing everything I’ll be doing is with the News team & makes me uncomfortable. No diversity, outdated software & process.
Financially, it’s the best position I been in. But mentally in this environment, it’s depressing & slow. Nothing innovative or engaging. What would you do?

I need career advice. I jumped into pharma from consumer at the beginning of covid, right after I was promoted to a mid-level copy role. My current team is a disaster (crazy hours, lots of incompetence, nightmare client). I was recently offered a senior level position at another pharma agency, but I miss consumer and ultimately want to get back to it. Is it dumb to turn down this job given that I'm so unhappy where I am? Should I stay where I am and keep looking for consumer roles?

I’ve been interviewing for a new job and am in midst of a few interviews where I have shared my salary expectations which is presumably low ($5k more than now).

When and how do I tell the companies I’m interviewing with that my expectations of salary have changed? Or is it worth missing out on the extra $11k to MAYBE be happier?

I build products used by many users but had a project added where my team will build an app only for one client. If it’s successful, it may be marketed to similar clients. I am now working as a project manager for this - where the client asks for something and we just build it. It’s completely white glove and will not scale. When I communicate this to executives, the response is “just build what they want”. I’m losing sense of purpose and motivation.

I’m on a 2 month gig with a set project rate. The GCD hit me up saying there’s a new brief they’d like to bring me on and bounce some ideas. I wrote after the kickoff about setting up a new contract since the one I’m on has nothing to do with this new project. Soon after all meetings got canceled saying that the clients are going with a smaller team. Think I dodged a bullet for giving free ideas but wanted to see if it was the right move? Avoid agreeing to future projects?
