Recently left for an exec position in industry. Yesterday, CEO handed me 7 proposal decks for a project we're kicking off. Two from MBB, three from B4, two from other. How the turntables...
How do you guys handle bullshit client adjustments? Do you ever push back? Or do you keep your mouths shut and adjust colors, fonts, sizes when they’re based on the opinion of someone with no design background at all?
Anyone tried CareOf or Ritual vitamins ? On a coast-to-coast travel project and have limited control over my diet .
Im a SM who just started at a large account , client folks( several Indian men) ask me to do administrative tasks like take notes and send out document links to meetings . Makes me sick to the stomach that no matter how hard you work or how high you go, being a non aggressive woman automatically means you aren’t perceived As a leader
Should I take an interview for a role brand side that I have no intention on accepting? My client has been hinting at me moving brand side to work on his team. He even asked a former colleague to gauge my interest. The issue is that I would be making significantly less money ($30k) and have a much lower title. I really just want to interview to meet more people in the organization, but I’m worried my agency will find out and it would put a bad taste in my clients mouth if he finds out.
What do you guys do when you have nothing to work on? I’m an A1, and sometimes due to client delays, work gets extremely slow. I’m just curious about what’s the common thing other staff do in this type of situation so I don’t feel guilty when I end up having free time
Seeking advice of fellow consultants & seniors here. I am currently working on an Internal Project for 50% chargeability. I have spent over 3 months and found it to be very demanding, with absolutely no value addition for me. I am depressed each day with the thought of working at it. Should I walk out of the internal project? How would it fare for my image and growth within the organization? Or should I suck it up & stick around anyways?
Any account management/client services folks that have made the shift to customer success roles? I’d love to know pros/cons.

I am exhausted and upset and feel alone, just want to give up everything and walk away. Nanny got Covid full rest for four days, husband got Covid at the same time and full rest, I handled my 9 month old alone. Baby still gets up multiple times in the night. I have 101 fever and I don’t get to rest because everyone is not feeling fully well still. I have to do night duty and handle two projects in the day because the partners are busy and the client deliverables are otherwise falling apart. Cont

My firm has hired 2 staff who do not own cars. Is this the weirdest practice or do other firms pull this crap too? It's not possible to take public trans. to every client, then what?
I tracked change updated a client communication letter from a template and sent to senior manager. When SM sent to partner all changes are under his name. No difference to my version. How low is that?

Any other ladies get so frustrated by forced family set ups? I swear I only hear from my extended family when it’s about set ups and my marriage status. And usually it’s just them praising the guy and telling me to make it work since I’m getting old (early 30s) 🤦🏽♀️

I had found my “calling” when I learned about UX Design. Still fairly fresh out of Uni. (Dec. 2020) w/ a B.S. in Digital Marketing, I entered the workforce right at the beg. of the pandemic where mktg jobs were far and few between. I didn’t have the hands on/tech experience I needed, + couldn’t get the mktg job I wanted. — Fast forward, I am leaving a toxic job (not mktg) to take a pay cut and focus on my UX Design. — What advice do you have do help me build a great career & find success?? 💛
Thoughts on the Deloitte benefit announcements?
I would like some help with GSAP. I’m GPS 1yr. Consultant. I would like to apply for master’s. I haven’t found any resource in DNet regarding it. When I called the call center, it seems like GPS are not qualified for GSAP? Has anyone experienced this? Is there a way to apply or do they find you? What criteria do they go off of? Is GSAP like fight club where we don’t talk about it? Help would be nice

Someone tell me what value a RM has been to them? They are utterly useless in my experience and quite frankly, the best job to take before retirement because I don't know what they do. Change my mind..

How can we bring this bowl back to life??
So… two months ago I started a gig as a CD. Good agency. Very talented people. Pretty quickly I realized that my new job is kinda about keeping up with incoming emails/teams messages. I can’t handle it. For the last month I have been sleeping in, getting out of bed after 11am, like I prefer. Those notifications start coming at around 8am and all I do is press those suggested replies on teams, not even half awake, pretty much still dreaming, and it works. I’m getting lots of good feedback.
That moment you see your reflection on the computer screen every morning, and think about what you're doing with your life, and then the login screen lights up and you got sucked into work 😳
