Something that’s getting lost in the whole agencies vs. clients vs. consultancies discussion: The clients are fucking crazy.

Clients have the industry by the balls and they know it. They tell us how high to jump and demand it be at a fraction of the price that it should be. The ad industry as a whole needs to stand up against the bullying of clients and push back on their bulldozing

I've had a GREAT sleeper, until now. Just went back to work at 6 months and baby is now waking 5-6 times at night (for the last 2 weeks) 😐. Is it a sleep regression? Growth spurt? Intro to solid foods? Change with me going back to work? So hard to figure out what to do and feeling like work will be very unbearable if this keeps up...anyone else experience this? What resources did you use to pinpoint the problem and fix it?

Probably asked a lot but how do you deal with the stress of a new project which involves a new team? Always had positive feedback but every time I get to join a different team on a project or proposal the stress is very high and it makes me reluctant to say yes to new assignments if they involve people I don't know.

Been working towards a promotion/raise after 3 years at my co. It was officially rejected today. Was told this is normal for our industry and that it’s due to budget. I think it’s me, and that’s bs.

With everything going on, I'm getting really depressed and demotivated working in consulting and having to deal with all the uncertainty and instability. Have started looking for internal talent management consultant/manager roles. Anyone willing to share their salary, vacation and maternity benefits for comparison? I'm sure I'll be taking a paycut and less bens, but wondering if there's probability that it's not too bad.
