Thoughts on McCann Health in NYC? Have worked at FCB before and liked their process, not sure if that is reflective of IPG as a whole 😊

I mostly love it there. The people are great, and it’s a well run agency. I really like and respect my account people.

Come here if you want to have zero work life balance and want your entire life to revolve around work.

McCann is cool. Expect long hours however, no one leaves or logs off until all deliverables are finished for the day so depending on your team that could 6:30 or midnight. They use Workfront Proof and have clear routing processes so if you’re familiar with the tool (or at least willing to learn) you may like it.

like

The fact that there is any routing platform being used is music to my ears. Where I am now, editorial literally does W4W off of ADOBE READER and I’ve been begging for a platform for months. Causes so many issues

@op - I hate it for what it’s worth

@McCann Health 1- my agency has a lot of planning roles open in our growing Health & Wellness group, hit me up if you’re interested!

How's Edelman NY? Getting hit up for Health which I've never done. It'll entail moving from advertising to PR/earned creative as they call it, and the Health category. Didn't sound like hard sell pharma, quite a bit of branded video content. I searched on FB, sounded mostly negative culturally (employee fired during Pride month, political, creatives better watch their backs, climate denier) with a few who love it. Figured I'll ask if anything's changed, if it's even worth ... considering.

12 weeks today. I was hoping I would be able to get DNA genetic testing today but my insurance still hasn’t approved the testing. I have up until Friday to see if it’s approved if not I can get another test but it’s a 90% detection rate ($300). The other test is 97% and out of pocket it’s about $3K. How would you guys proceed?... Just take the $300 test if the other isn’t approved in time?

What amount of detail should one provide? Do schools ask for proof?

60M people need to be vaccinated. Offering them $1000 each would cost this country $60B. Realistically, you can get to half of that population — $30B. One booster shot for 250M people at 80% uptake — $200B. For $30B - $230B, we can end the pandemic in the USA. Worth it? Edited: add in $5M for an MBB to do this math and put it in a PPT for you. And $50M for a big 4 firm to implement, botch, reimplement.
