Thoughts on Zimmerman in Miami? Do they measure up with the community and David? What do they generally look for?

I mean, have you seen a video of Jordan Zimmerman? If that alone doesn’t tell you enough, maybe just search for the threads on this app. Let me just say people are unkind about the place.

Zimmerman is FUNDAMENTALLY different from agencies like David, the community, etc. Zim handles a lot of Tier 2 work for Omnicom clients like Nissan whose creative AOR (in this case, TBWA) doesn’t want to do the promo-heavy, non-creative grunt work that needs to be done. They’ll always have projects (and lots of them), but it’s not stuff that ever makes the press. Just watch a JZ instagram video (@jzspeaks) and you’ll see what they’re all about.

No more Nissan...having lay offs because JZ walked away from it

The most important factor is FT. Lauderdale itself. You’ll need to enjoy a generally obnoxious culture that, while fun in stints, isn’t a place a lot of people can handle 24/7 if they aren’t part of “the scene”

It does not measure up.

It's in Fort Lauderdale not miami so its not in a downtown setting if you are used to that. They are part of Omnicom so you can always tap into that network. I've heard Jordan Zimmerman can be difficult but people do enjoy working there and they have some big clients and are growing

They are not growing...they are laying off people and hiring 2 in their place. Scum of the earth that place. RUN.......I don't know anyone who likes working there. Low pay , horrible benefits unless you are an executive forget it. They care nothing about the employees

Zimmerman, aside from the actual Zimmerman, is for cowardly capitalist-in-name only ad betas afraid to go freelance or strike out on their own. Then again, so is advertising. (No exception here.)

How does this even address the thread, oh arbiter of all things witty?

Consensus seems that they’re not in the same tier as some of MIA’s noteworthy agencies. What are they known for then?

Gut and David are head and shoulders above the rest. Since CPB shut down, it’s not a very big ad scene anymore.

Anyone else get tired of the LinkedIn charade? Every day I see countless posts by people in advertising/marketing that come across as preachy, self-indulgent, humble brags that annoy me.

Or the super-duper smart Copywriter who regurgitates Olgyvisms that we’ve all read a billion times to show his or her worth. It’s 2020. And I’m jaded.
