Good life lesson . I saw a guy who worked 30 years at same agency getting less of the recognition than he expected . Because no one he was working with at the 30 year point had worked with him longer than 3 years

Recognizing hard work is not what this industry is about. After 10 years you should know that.

THIS is why I agency hop. They show no loyalty to me, so why would I show it back.

Dude if you stayed 10 years without any recognition you are the problem. I'm sorry why didn't you jumped the ship years ago?

To those who question why I've stayed... I'm a working mom w 2 kids. I only come in 3 days. I leave at 445pm every day. I got some money at 3, 5, 7 years but management has changed. Thanks for all the posts w what you guys get. I'm gonna ask because I deserve it for putting up with their B.S.

The question is why?

I'm sorry to hear that, you should say something to somebody so they know you're disappointed. The truth is it's so rare that they probably didnt know what to do. My bet would be the management and almost everyone else has changed at your place in those 10 years, so nobody appreciates how long you've been there. Most people leave an agency long before that, for whatever reason. I hope you get something you like. But also keep in mind (by shitty ad industry standards) it's cool you havent been laid off in that long. They at least value you that much.

Leave. And don’t spend ten years at an agency again unless you are a partner at said agency

If you travel to another office within your firm to do something for Client A, but an emergency comes up for Client B that ends up taking all of your time (but that you didn’t strictly speaking have to be at the other office location to handle), which client do you bill your travel time/expense to?

So my husband and I decided to go back to our original plan and starting to try for a baby next month. My daughter will be 18 months old and it’s been a struggle with work and her in general with covid and no daycare or outside help. I’m down to part time hours already with the intention of her hopefully being able to go to daycare in the summer or fall. I really want to complete my family but worry about not having help with two kids. Plus I dk how long it could take to get pregnant this time

Has anyone here ever worked/considered working in “brand management” at a CPG giant like P&G, General Mills, etc? I just looked up salaries...it’s like $180k for roles with 4-5yrs experience, and those offices are all in the Midwest. You could buy a mansion in Cincinnati with that kind of money! Or more preferably, save 80% of your earnings while working for a few years and then buy somewhere you’d actually want to live. Plus it’s client-side, and something tells me the hours would be super easy
