CPB is sadly a sinking ship. No good clients, constant cost cutting and frankly, the place has no soul anymore. Stay very far away.

3% of CP+B is like 2 people at this point though, isn’t it? Still sorry to hear that though.

CD OP: I certainly don’t want to speak for SCD1, but I’ve been gone from CP+B a little over a year and there are still some very talented creatives, CDs, and at least 1 amazing ECD still there. I don’t know your circumstances but if you’ve talked to them recently maybe you can squeeze a freelance gig out of them to see what it’s like?

They have like 300 in Boulder, right? not sure in LA

I thought there was barely anyone left in LA after the Infiniti loss.

You might be right ?

Used to be 300 in Boulder but that’s been whittled down a lot by all the layoffs. I’ve got some friends there and they said it was only a couple higher up positions. Probably trying to get rid of a few more big salaries

SCD1, I know every agency has its issues, but from afar CP+B seemed to be turning a bit of a corner after losing Ralph, Lori Senical, and bringing in those Swedish dudes....is it still a sweatshop? Are there still good creatives/other leaders there? Asking because I’ve occasionally talked to them about coming there, but hard to leave freelance and move to CO etc...

They did away with the CCO position??

I realized most of my anxiety or depression stems from a lack of career fulfillment. I recently started a new position and things were going great till they restructured my group and laid off a few on my team. Now I'm always looking over my shoulder and too concerned about screwing up. In the past, I have been laid off & I can't help reading too much in to every single email. My therapist made me aware of this but I'm looking for coping tools that someone in my situation has found useful. HELP!
