Title bump and $$$ to go to Mcgarrybowen NY. Worth it? I know they don’t have the sexiest work but seems chill. Thoughts?

Congrats all, some serious fake news on this thread. W+K not a thing until the 2000s? Odd, I think they’d been Nike AOR at least twice by then, so we’re talking campaigns with Jordan, Tiger, etc.... Meanwhile Mcgarry got business successful super fast, not a damned thing wrong with that, although not (yet) creatively iconic. Could they be? Could you be someone who helps take them there? Interesting to consider, innit?

That’s what they do, throw money and titles at you to get talent because the work is meh. Don’t do it.

Honestly Matt Ian is amazing and I’m sure he is making the agency great. From what I been hearing they been trying to hire good talent in the past year to make the agency good again. I would rather work at a place like that where there is at least an opportunity of something become great than going somewhere like were I am now where people think it’s great but it’s actually horrible.

Exactly Mccann. Matt is bringing in a lot of stellar people. And there is a new president in NY and Matt feels very supported and empowered. As for clients cannot entirely disagree with Droga here. But the work there is getting better too. And they are winning new biz so that can be on Matt’s terms.

Leadership doesn’t stand behind the creative. It’s a systemic problem. What is explained here are just symptoms of that. Decide if you are ok with that and if so, go in accepting it and don’t bang your head against the wall trying to change things.

I worked there for a year (before getting laid off). Got the title and salary bump and then was on my way. Commute is *horrible.* People pretty bad too. But could be worth it ... for a year.

Can't argue with an extra 10 minutes not being that bad, but holy shit it's a very long 10 minutes during Jan/Feb with that wind whipping off the river or trudging through a snow storm or heavy rain. I remember when they left their flatiron district office for 12th ave. People were pissed to the highest degree of pisstivity because it was quicker to walk than take the M23 crosstown. Yes, I am very old.

Our office has a terribly toxic culture due to no official leadership and an immature hothead with no experience in the industry dominating everything, if it’s not his way it’s a blow up fight. Cont
