PSA. Droga5 is not what it used to be but still have good opportunities. People say it is a tough place to work. WK is solid but sometimes also does bad work. Have decent hours. You can use the magnifyer icon to search for droga and wieden so you can find this post instead of posting the same thing every week.

Yah but as usual there’s an American only mentality on app. Droga London is falling apart. There’s a handful of people left following pandemic layoffs. Strats hate their CSO. And WK Amsterdam is running its staff into the ground and they’re all stressed. Love, Europe.

WK Portland too 😅

Not what it was when? Droga was scrappy and rule-breaking and did funny stuff. Then it got big, started making awesome films but the funny/innovative work dried up. That was like 5 years ago. It’s still like that.

Don’t get offended. I didn’t say it’s bad. I’m making a wrap up of the comments that show up here every day or so. My personal opinion about the agency, the pinnacle of Droga creativity was the jay-z work. And it kept doing really good work for a long time. And in a variety of styles from funny like johnsonville, to artsy like the Henessy stuff. But I haven’t seem really exciting things coming out of D5 in a while. Still solid but not compared with stuff from 5 years ago. And a lot happened with droga (aquisition, ted royer scandal) and with the world. So I think it is just a matter of time until it gets some momentum again. Now I have good friends at D5. And my former partner used to work there. And in general they say the agency is a meat grinder. This is something I can’t say for sure but it is what I heard.

Has anyone ever tried negotiating for more vacation rather than a higher salary? I'm applying and interviewing for jobs right now. Some firms have unlimited PTO while others only give a few weeks. Personally, I'm much more interested in getting an additional week of vacation and would rather negotiate for that but usually only hear of people negotiating for salary. Has anyone had experience with this?

Interested to hear how people learn project management. I have done PRINCE2 exam and read PMP materials, but I find these are too textbook theory based. Real life projects seem to be very different and a lot more complicated. I often do not know what needs to be done unless someone tells me. I believe you can learn these things on the job, but I am keen to expedite this with some books or courses. Are there any resources that are particularly helpful?

Interviewing for a great position in industry (tech). They have equity comp & great benefits. Spoke to their HR, then interviewed with 2 people in the tax department and am getting scheduled for a next round of interviews. The only problem is: the office is about 1 hr from my house (I own). They said repeatedly that they want someone who will be in the office 5 days a week. I would actually move but can’t rent out my place now due to some repairs going on that will take 4-5 months. Thoughts?

I accepted a new job, they said PTO was “generous.” I find out it’s 19 days a year of PTO (which includes sick days). I have two young children and we like to vacation 1-2x a year (no more than a few days away each time). Am I crazy that this is pretty limited time off? 8 of the normal holidays off during the year (working the week between Christmas and NYE). Thoughts? I dont know if lack of PTO is a good reason to back out, is it?

My gyno suggested I get some baseline hormone testing because I’m 39 and still would like to have a baby, but also been experiencing some pre-menopausal-ish symptoms. I am on the pill every day, no breaks, no periods. She said I only have to stop taking the pill for a week, then get the blood test on day 7. Has anyone gotten this done? I haven’t had a period or PMS for at least a decade. Should I stock up on Midol and chocolate??

Need in-law advice. We’ve been very careful with COVID. Our children are too young to be vaccinated. We are visiting parents-in-law (elderly, vaccinated) and sister-in-law (her and her husband vaccinated, two small kids aren’t but they arrived early and are past incubation period). This is an isolated lake house. Turns out this whole other family is staying in the house. We weren’t informed. They are not vaccinated yet all are eligible. One, a camp counselor, is now ill w/ fever, cough, etc.
