Thoughts on working at a digital commerce agency? Good? Bad? Worried that it is too niche.

As in ecomm? It can be a drudge in some roles. Lots of frameworks, templates, retailer requirements to work within.

I'm interviewing for what sounds like 2 different roles at Amazon (not AWS) they are both L6 but in different areas of the business. One is in Finance/Global Business Services and the other is in Project/Product/Program Management (Non-tech). I feel like one of the roles is more senior in the work the one in Project/Product/Program Management and to be hone the on in Finance/Global business services seems much less intense. Do you think they'd offer me significantly more for one role?

Indie recruiter reached out (probaby just fishing), said CCO I'd never heard of (not that this means anything, no one's heard of me either!) is awesome (of course she'd say that), place is doing exciting things, etc. etc. Thoughts on CCO, department, clients, what & how they're doing lately? Any insight would be great thanks!

Recommendations for pages/sites to network on?


Had to tell a vendor they're not on the plan, and they responded with a kind of angry email that was meant for their supervisor (she replied all instead of forwarding) [cont]

So this happens a lot at my agency. I come up with concepts, but am not invited to internal meetings where they are presented. Does this happen anywhere else?


What do you do when you absolutely love the work you do and the content you're making but you are just completely done with an incredibly difficult and unnecessarily demanding team. I don't think i can handle working with these people anymore, I'm so entirely burnt out, but i absolutely hate that my only option is to just leave the work i like doing and that I'm proud of. And I work in a very niche industry so i can't just do the same thing somewhere else.


Am I being petty?
My parents have pictures of my brother, his certificates & awards on the mantel, but barely any of mine.
Even in the family photos they have up, they are old ones where we are young, then some of my brother's new ones.
I'm the older sibling & there is nothing of me after 12, my high school or college graduation.
I already feel like the neglected & less favorite often, but this adds to it.
They offered to put them up now when I pointed it out.
But I'm hurt I had to ask.


Any recommendations on good recruitment agencies/entities/people? I finally been ghosted by my first recruiter, which must be a major milestone.


Hi all - I’m the head of the project management department at my agency. I’ve been here almost two years and want to move from my cube to a vacant office but need to convince my superiors. Any advice?

It’s been close to half a year since I told a recruiter I’d get back to them with an updated book. The reason why it’s taken me so long is because of a family friend passing from covid and me also feeling like my book was never good enough. Since it was my dream agency I wanted to show my best self but the pandemic cancelled basically all the projects I was excited about putting in my book and all I really have is mostly student work. (1/2)


I am shadowing someone and they are doing things very wrong. Do I say something? I don’t want to be associated with it, but also don’t want to seem I’m not wanting to work with the person.
