So much merging, so little good work. ... They should just merge and rename VML, Y&R, AKQA, Grey and Geometry to “MERGER”

Technically there’s no such thing as a merger in advertising, cause one agency is always buying the other. Whoever ‘s culture is left standing is the agency that bought, not sold.

Grey is bigger than AKQA by the way, so that’s not about one buying the other.

Ad Age Datacenter reports Grey had estimated 2019 worldwide revenue of about $702 million, down 1% from 2018. Meanwhile, AKQA had estimated revenue of $304 million in 2019, which was relatively flat from the previous year, according to Ad Age Datacenter.

I’m currently in FS Tax and am a new senior and just joined a new team in a new state doing the same thing. I really want to eventually go out and do my own thing or work for a firm that services small businesses, trusts, individuals, etc. I am a people person and 100% feel like my skill set is lost working at Big 4. I want to help people and definitely don’t feel that working at PwC. Should I jump to a smaller firm sooner or wait until manager? Or try to switch groups at PwC? Thoughts?

I’m on the verge of closing out a final interview where my salary will go from $70k base/no bonus to $105k base+10% bonus. My title will go from senior analyst to manager. However, I’m going from Accenture to a startup that got acquired (has $2 bn parent company so bankruptcy isn’t going to happen) and I’ll be going from working with a young crowd to older people. I wouldn’t hit the comp the startup is offering for at least 3-4 yrs if I stayed at Accenture. Any advice/thoughts?

I am struggling with the fact that I have 13 years of HR experience in one capacity or another, along with a bachelors degree and my PHR designation yet companies say “I’m not qualified or they ghost me when I apply for HR openings. I am experienced in all aspects of HR. How are people with little to no experience coming right out of college obtaining higher level roles than I have currently? It makes my passion for the field just go away.
