Starting a new job on Monday. Last time I did this I was a nervous junior with zero clue. Any tips on what I should be doing besides basic onboarding? 1:1s with the CCO? Seeing materials for the brands I’ll be working on? Anything else?

1:1s with the rest of your day to day team to understand how everything functions before the CCO.

Bug HR now if you have questions about submitting time and vacation etc, they’ll be less understanding later.

How do you handle aggressive, hard-ass leadership?

I was on a group strategy call and our VP says "OK *account manager* (me), we have decided that your new focus needs to be electronics, do you understand that?" He said it in a very stern tone of voice. Well of course I understand it because it was my f*cking idea that I brought to his attention prior to Christmas.

IMO, this guy does nothing. He steals the ideas of his team members and then acts like tyrant in front of people.

What is it about the advertising/marketing industry that makes 80 hour work weeks acceptable? The industry needs to inform clients that it's not ok, it needs to come from within to set new standards for acceptable practice. As agencies take this to heart, protect their people from burn out and say "no", clients will no longer expect ridiculous turnarounds.

Hello All,
Excel help please. I’m trying to combine 3 tabs into 1. So on tabs a,b,c I have wire instructions that go to different places, but they all have the same field names/format. However the number of rows for each tab will vary from day to day. I need to make a fourth tab that shows all the rows from a,b,c consecutively. Because the number of rows change, I can’t find the best way to collate all the rows into one table. I can use a macro or lookups or a source formula. Please advise!
