Manager is the most difficult IFS level IMO. Not enough clout to influence decisions, required to drive new processes down the chain, often clogged upward mobility, etc.

Agreed, both that and the lack of Senior Manager roles in IFS for Managers to even make it to the next level

I’m sure people here have been in a situation where they were looking for another job while they were pitching some big ideas with their current agency. These are ideas you’d be proud to have in your book.

If one of these ideas was sold and you started getting offers from other places, what did you do? Did you stick around and see the work through or did you accept the offer and ask to be credited to some degree? Did you regret your decision or was there anything you wish you did differently?
