JetBlue account is currently up for review, and that’s a shame for the agency since it’s one of the most creative opportunities there.

Really depends on which office.

Leadership. Or lack thereof. And turnover. The split of ML and Profero was a messy power grab. Then the folks who were considered ML had an entirely different way of working, and level of creative clients, from Boston. But they were not staffed up to be independent for a looong time (no studio, no producers or PMS). Here was a Constant push and pull of “how we do things.” Accounts were won out of Boston, sent to NY and then there was resentment on both sides. And the NY team hated the “hoops” they had to go through and Boston resented the hassle of working on NY accounts because there was all the drama and none of the rewards. Many, many accounts were lost in this time and turnover was insane and oh, Lordy, the mistakes. I’ve never seen such chaos in my entire career. Creative control would get regularly swapped back to Boston to handle the inevitable crisis. Then they switched up the leadership again, but there was no teeth to it. Boston still held the cards. Then Boston itself fell apart. The good people had all left in the last few years and then they laid off so many more. I used to think it was hyperbole that Boston would crumble, but now I think it’s inevitable. And since NY was never given the actual resources to thrive, I’m not sure it will survive. Maybe if they can reinvent it, but they have not managed to thus far. And there is no killer client to anchor it.

Recently started a new gig (less than three months). Team is great but client is a nightmare, deadlines and workload are insane and unforgiving and the type of work is a dead end road creatively. Another recruiter reached out with a role that is closer to the kind of work I want to be doing - is it awful to jump ship so soon? The agency is great but in remote mode I don’t have any interactions outside my team. Recruiting agency is newer and less established. Advice?

Where are you shopping for clothes for return to office? Our firm’s dress code has not changed from what it was pre-COVID and I’m finding that many stores no longer carry work-appropriate attire. Help?! For reference, our official policy is business professional, but people tend to dress it down a bit to semi-business casual.
