Thoughts on The Marketing Store? Client work interesting or is it typical agency craziness?

I was there as a freelance junior and wasn’t fond of it. This was before the We Are Unlimited consolidation. It’s just not a creative place to be, and the name never gets you anywhere in the city outside of an “oh, cool I guess."

3 months into a 6 month internal project. I proactively scheduled a feedback session with the “big boss”/key stakeholder tomorrow (I have weekly check-ins with my day to day lead weekly), and I am terrified. They are highly critical and can come off as abrasive, and any ad-hoc feedback I receive makes me feel like I’m never good enough. I’m expecting to have darts thrown at me and want to curl up in a ball and cry after... any advice? Just didn’t want to be blindsided at the end of the project.

Two weeks ago the partner told me I was getting a 2 based on my review on his client (90% of my time) today he called me and said that him and the SM were able to convince someone to give me a 3 😂

I’m feeling pretty overwhelmed from my current project. Everything from not understanding the current process, the technology, etc and I feel like I’m being pulled in a thousand directions. I feel like I’m slipping and I’m unbelievably stressed out where I’m having a hard time sleeping and it’s impacting my personal life. I’ve let my director know there’s a capacity issue, but there’s no end of this madness in site. What should I do? I don’t know what to do and I’m starting to lose my mind.

Had a networking call with a partner that said they won’t be interviewing until 2021 for lateral hires. Friend said that’s not entirely true, and to try networking with others in that same office. Don’t want to come across as pushy. If a Partner really liked me, couldn’t they make a push to interview me? 🤔
