Thinking about moving from NYC to SF. Can anyone share thoughts/experiences?

It’s a little Smokey out here these days, but in general my career opportunities feel a bit limited, but my mental and physical health has improved drastically after moving to SF from NYC.


If you’re going to San Francisco be sure to put some flowers in your hair


Bring a good pooper scooper


SF is a new ring of hell that was added to accommodate tech bros


What about venereal and partners?


And face mask

Don’t unless you’re going to Goodby. Not many great account opportunities out here.

If you’re into product design and heavy digital marketing working with tech brands and startups it’s good. If it’s a traditional advertising art director you’re after - there’s Goodby but not much else.

I’m thinking of doing the opposite, SF has become a dump. Also unless you go tech, Goodby’s the only option

I'd be going for tech

Venables ain’t what it used to be. Hopefully they bounce back. Still got Audi though.

Shout out for mcgarry. We bought a huge digital agency and over 200 people on the Presidio. INTEL Microsoft Clorox. Dole. JUniper. And winning tons of new biz. NEw CCO from VML just moved out there. The HR woman is amazing.

Nice! The post animation looks good!


Who still isn’t vaccinated yet? What are you waiting for? I’m not anti-v*x but for some reason I’m scared of getting mine 😭


Is the 50-50 male-female hiring rule fair? In many offices the applicants are 80-20, thus women are 4 times more likely to make it. Isn’t this the definition of discrimination?


The myth of the male/female wage gap drives me nuts. Pay is nearly the same for jobs at the same function, level, and company. If you want equal pay, do equal work.

Without saying your age, what is something you remember from your childhood that a younger person would not understand?


What’s the WORST name you’ve been called by a client?


Thoughts on unlimited pto? Early research shows employees take less pto when companies implement this policy. Have you had this before and did it work to your advantage ?


Let’s name cities that if you told a consultant you were going to they could probably guess the client. I’ll go first: Kohler, WI


What do you do if you are legitimately sick on a Sunday night (I.e. 100+ fever and getting worse, flu-like symptoms) and need to fly out in less than 12 hours to the client site?


Why are so many people experiencing such burnout and mental health issues? Is it comparison driven by social media exposure or rising workplace stress or lonely life style driven by binge watching?


Who has a side hustle or passion project? Where do you find the time? Are you doing it for fun or to eventually leave? I miss the days I worked a 9-5 and feel stupid for not taking advantage of all that free time. Now, I’m selling my soul.


My boss is making me spend New Years Eve with him as a team building event - but it’s just me and him. How do I politely tell him no?
