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.

QQ for any TTP users: what would you recommend as the most accelerated use of the portal? I have my GMAT in about 10 days. I've had access for half a month and I'm through ~20% problems. I've only targeted sections where I felt I needed the most improvement mainly focusing on chapter tests. If I haven't met the accuracy needed, I've then spent time on the lessons and usually hit the accuracy after. For additional context, aiming for Q47+. I was on a Q45 on a Veritas mock last week.
