Why is there not an creative Union? I mean honestly. We’ve got SAG, DGA, Teamsters, Editors Guild, Writers Guild, WGA, Agents and producers even have a Union! So why do creators who actually manufacture the product of an agency not make real money off our ideas.

Why do so many people in our industry take such pride in not caring about advertising? Like I get that we’re not savings lives and one should be interested in things outside of advertising too but there’s just so much negativity towards people who genuinely love it. And when someone finds out someone is really into it, they judge them or throw shady remarks for no good reason.

Anyone happy at fcb chicago?
My partner had an interview where a full naked body (either from a roommate or s/o?) was exposed on the interviewers side of their Zoom background. No apology or acknowledgement towards the situation was ever expressed during/after the interview. She decided to bring it up to HR and they completely brushed it off as well. She is emotionally scarred and in such a slump by the situation and job search in general. Is this normal agency behavior, especially from HR?! So grossed out by the response.

I love the holding company that I am currently at, but absolutely hate the account I am on. I would love to stay within the company but need to get off this account ASAP. Does anyone have any suggestions on how to go about transferring teams? I’ve had a few 1:1s with my boss voicing my concerns and that I’m not happy, but I’m at my tipping point. I’ve also looped our staffing director and was asked to give it a month or two. It’s been 3 weeks and I’m just as miserable. Any advice would be great.
