It's posted in a media bowl so you're going to get media perspectives (including mine). I only say this because this is perspective of one - Media agencies are increasingly working with media partners on one-off executions that include creative elements, though production of said creative assets is usually built by the partner with oversight from the creative agency to ensure it still aligns with the Brand's overall messaging and goals. Creative agencies lead building the overall creative messaging/concept/idea that ties everything (all executions/media placements) together. TL;DR - creative agencies build the structure and framework from an overall standpoint, media agencies help steward media-specific creative within singular partners.

In an ideal world, creative and media should always be working together towards the same end goal

It really varies from agency to agency and to make things more complicated most agencies are owned by one of 4 holding companies and most clients will randomly take some functions in house and then move back to the agencies.

Also depends on the channel. I work in Social and we have little to no input on the creative development. We offer recommendations on ad unit types and the overall number of assets but we don't develop any copy or images/video. I prefer it this way as media buying and creative are two distinct disciplines. I know I don't want creative agencies telling us what or how to buy.

Currently in consulting. Have always liked Organizational Change Management, but have also been interested in Project Management. Between an Associate PM at a F50 company and an OCM Consultant at a boutique, which would you pick? Same city. PM pay is a little higher but workload will likely be more and culture will be more cut-throat. I was thinking I can probably get into PM later if consulting did not work out, and this hopefully won't be my last time getting an offer from a big firm.

Have you guys noticed a difference in reactions when asking for a raise from men/women supervisors? I feel like the women supervisors that I’ve asked get really uncomfortable and look at me like I’m asking for a lot, whereas the men at least are a bit more composed in their reaction and almost expect it. I don’t know though as I only have 2 situations to go by. any thoughts? Curious to know others’ experience

Anyone here who started their consulting careers later in life? Always seeing posts about how young people make it to P... wondering about the other stories. I started as a C at 29 (yes, unfortunately, I fall into the bucket of exp hire hired at a lower level...), made M at 33. Doing well but also feeling like I’m already too old to aim to be a P. Hoping for some perspectives.
