Thinking about jumping from a Havas agency to an Omnicom one. Would I just be swapping one corporate overlord for another? Should I just try to go an independent shop (if any exist anymore)?

Do not, I repeat, do not go to Omnicom. And yes, independents exist - Klick pays well and you can have good work/life balance on the right account. Also, Klick takes way better care of its employees.

I’ve heard “anything but Havas” a lot lately…
Still some indie shops around, but there may be a give/take with comp packages (higher pay, but higher cost of benefits).

I think omnicom has the same crazy RTO mandates that havas has, ive heard mixed things from friends there. I’ve never worked at omnicom because most the agencies there are under market rate, i once had a phone screen for H&S that was 20k less than my title at the time for the next title up.

Omnicom doesn't pay that well but has good benefits. I agree that Klick is one of the better options now.

Choose any agency that offers WFH and a good salary. Many agencies have better benefits than Havas take your time and chose your best fit.

What is the difference between Group Acct Sup and Account Director?

I’ve been having a super hard time concepting lately, especially knowing that the “concept” will mostly serve as a sticker to slap on the cover of a CVA and the top of a website. I feel like every pharma concept I’ve ever seen or created becomes so cheesy once it appears in tactics. Does anyone have any examples of HCP creative (non-DSA) that is both impactful and translates well into pharma tactics?
