They can throw bags of money at the best creative geniuses in the universe, but until someone replaces my upward managing, crappy, do-nothing, non-supportive, wishy-washy, unable to handhold the needy client account guy, then ain’t nuttin’ gonna change.

Every WPP agency seems to have this issue

She’s okay, but she wasn’t really consequential here. We’ve lost several big pitches in a row, and haven’t been able to fill the Chicago CCO role in over a year. Like, she’s nice I’m not anti-Liz, but be real. She hasn’t been in impact leader at Leo.

Yeah, those weren’t the global network pitches. You’re examples are at the Leo Chicago level. We’re talking about global CCO here. The awards are an irrelevant metric for a CCO of the global network and an entire region of the holding company. Her name gets put on everything.

‘Good’ 😂

Ogilvy is a huge challenge right now, so I hope she gets the support she needs to turn it around

It’s not Ogilvy that’s the challenge, it’s the holding company management. Neither of these agencies will get better from this move.

It’s a way back now, but LB last had legit creative glory days in Chicago under Cheryl Berman. No doubt, it’s a much tougher industry nowadays in about a gazillion ways, but Berman had big idea chops over a long career. Unfortunately, because of how the industry has evolved, getting a holding company agency to be consistently on a creative roll seems elusive for most networks. The turnover at the top in many of the international network shops is higher nowadays.

Where are you shopping for clothes for return to office? Our firm’s dress code has not changed from what it was pre-COVID and I’m finding that many stores no longer carry work-appropriate attire. Help?! For reference, our official policy is business professional, but people tend to dress it down a bit to semi-business casual.

Why do some people say that the senior level at big tech (e.g., L6 at AWS) correlates to senior manager level at big 4? I get it from a comp perspective since comp is just that much higher. But from a scope/skills perspective, I find it hard to believe that L6 is closer to SM than it is to SC. Asking cause I have a senior level offer in big tech. Amazon, AWS, Google, Facebook, Apple, Microsoft

Ladies have you ever fallen for a guy over text? This guy is so hot and cold with me and we’ve never met - but have such a great time texting. It’s so confusing. He lives 4.5 hours away from me and works 6 days a week (sometimes 7). We were supposed to meet some time back and then his mom got sick and then I got covid and then he got this job... and we never met again. What do I do ? He rarely ever initiates conversations these days, but when I do message him he’s on a roll.
