Is it possible for an agency to be successful without burning their people out? I've been at both types: an agency that keeps winning awards and doing great work, but burns everyone out; an agency that does mediocre work, can't hire any good talent but the QOL is unparalleled. So does the best of both not (or can't) exist?
Here we go again. Michigan Billionaire Devs family( yes, the former Secretary of educations) is trying once again to privatize Michigan schools with two initiatives for private school vouchers.

So over how how some want to destroy public education and make it a a money maker for companies and investors

I am a female senior associate and have been told to delegate less intense projects to new associates (with 1-2 years on the books). I then provide feedback to them, which sometimes involves giving a lot of constructive criticism depending on how new they are. Anyone else in this situation notice the new associates tend to develop resentment? Or, if you are a new associate, are you resentful of being trained by a senior associate instead of a partner? If so, why?
Employer is trying to force me (disabled using a walker and immunocompromised) to return to work at the office after WFH efficiently (covering 2 roles!) For 2 years. I actually can't even do my job from the office. Office isn't ADA compliant and my walker doesn't fit. Some employees aren't vaxxed and mask mandates are being removed. I've been fighting this order loudly. And now I have to meet with the CEO, HR and my supervisor. Wish I could leave, but I don't have a new job lined up.

Anyone else exhausted by all the different documents, plans, decks, etc.? I’ve been doing this ten years and I honestly still trip up on the difference between comms plans, creative strategies and sometimes creative briefs because different agencies treat them differently and include different things. Please share a POV on how you think they should be defined and stop my overthinking…lol.

I always wanted to be a planner but found myself in acc due to job availabilities and needing to pay rent. While a great account person is priceless, it’s just not me - unless I fake it and go against my nature.

Should I just say fuck it and bear with things until going client side someday?
