Right now playing both AM/PM (mid-to-senior level) but need to make a decision soon to go one way or the other. Any pros/cons I should consider? Votes?

Would you rather manage clients or manage internal resources?


Ive done both and prefer PM without question


It varies where you are but in general a PM should see a project from start to finish. There is a lot of admin but in general you are far more involved in the day to day as a PM and run the overall project/s for a client. Accounts, in general are more involved with bringing in the overall selling in of the project/s as well as bringing in new work. You'll likely also get to know the internal team/s more if you go the PM route or get to know the client/s more if you go the account route. I


Think longer term - do you like finance & agency operations OR strategy & creative? As you progress in your career at an agency or otherwise - PM is focused on operations while AM is focused on client business strategy and growth. The path you take should lead you towards one or the other in the long run.

If you haven’t watched The Death of Stalin, you should. It’s hilarious. It also makes me think about what might be going on at the top of Deloitte right now after that WSJ story. #grabthepoocorn

I am really happy with my job and like wlb, but all my colleagues are jumping ship and it makes me feel pressured to look somewhere else. Is the grass really greener? Does 10k more really make a difference in your life?

Do you believe employers would value your early stage startup experience as much as if you had say a FAANG, big bank or consulting experience ?
