In terms of client roster, rga.
For work life balance, a predictable but not very fun client roster, slower pace, critical mass



So when you say SF, you mean Cupertino. That’s where CM is based, on site at Apple. It’s ok, but wouldn’t recommend it. There are better options out there.

Currently on a project with an extremely abrasive and condescending female manager - shreds me to pieces every time we talk about my deliverable (she offers a good perspective, but unnecessarily rude and demeaning in her feedbacks).

Anyone else like this?

How’s the pipeline looking for end of December in OTS-TAS. What about VBM?


Hello there! I currently work in billing at a medical office. I got my Bachelors in Psychology a few years ago but I couldn’t find a position that seemed like a good option for me that was well paying and fulfilling. I tried working as a tech at an Applied Behavior Analysis clinic but it wasn’t a good fit. I’m hesitant to try case management or social work because I worry I won’t like it but I want to use my degree in Psychology. Does anyone have any ideas for me?


lol ..

Everyone gets so distracted in the build to the holidays. I genuinely want to see my students succeed but it's challenging when it's clear they're not focused!

What are some fun things you do to keep them on task during the final weeks of the year?

Thank you!!

This is a long shot but would any copywriters be open to rewrite a few lines of copy for me by end of day? I’ll let you use the ads in your portfolio too.

For background I need to send a recruiter some examples of more conceptual work so I’m reworking some of my old student work. The concept is there but I don’t like the copy.

Thoughts on Allscope?


After 4 rounds of interviews, a company tells you you're a final candidate, and gives you a deadline for when a decision will be made. Then they blow past that date and ghost you for over a week. No phone calls or emails returned. Would you still consider the job if given the offer weeks later? Feeling a little disrespected.

I’m Latino. No degree, because my family couldn’t afford it. I worked hard to get in. I got over half of my jobs by ignoring the bachelor’s degree requirements on job postings. In my most recent job, the computerized form required a degree to even submit it. I just lied and put a “0.0” GPA to get through the system. If you think this systemic crap doesn’t affect your diversity numbers, wake up.


What NYC agencies have got everyone working from home at the moment?


Definitely moments away from publicly shaming the company who hasn't paid since December 2019.

What a joke.


Thought experiment for you, fishies.

We all love to hate on billable hours. What’s a real, feasible alternative???

Small agency owner 🙋🏻‍♂️ I’ve wracked my brain and have 3 biz model options, none great:

Billable hrs: Generally accepted. We all know the downsides.

Pay4performance: Big upside potential, tons of risks.

Project pricing: Cloak for billable hours. You have to estimate project cost with something.

Who’s thought of a better approach??? Genuinely curious if there is one.


Let’s play a game - YOE/salary/market . Ill go first - 4years/103.5k/nyc
