I love it. Tons of smart people, cool space, awesome location and interesting clients. Culture could be a little better but if you're on a good team it's not bad. Leadership really cares about diversity and equality which is cool. The one main negative is the long hours but that's pretty standard in the industry.

VP1 - what do you mean by in-house mandates?

They require you to use their in house editors and audio guys and experiential people etc etc and it gets exhausting and isolating.

Thanks FCB 1! Happy to hear that :)

When I think winning Cannes all the time, balance seems out of the question.

Last min requests for proactive decks to show the client ‘we’re doing stuff’ that have to be worked on over the weekend only to be not used the following week are really getting to me. It’s a wonderful way to let employees know you don’t care about them while having mandatory meetings so the company can tell employees how much the agency cares about them.

Sunday thoughts - prepped for an upcoming interview all day and felt wracked with self doubt. Then realised that the 5-year-ago (22yo) me would be thrilled to be where I am now.

If you’ve come a long way, share your story and let’s toast to our successes. This job can be hard, but getting to today hasn’t been easy either
