There’s much less stigma than there used to be, depending on the brand/the category you’d be moving into. Also, the agency model is not in great shape, so not to be dramatic, but you’re jumping off a sinking ship, a little. There are for sure some old schoolers who’d look down on you for it, but if your work is strong, you’ll be fine if you want to come back. Take what’s best now, always

Hmm... yeah I hear that. I currently work at a top agency so I think even if the agency model is deteriorating we will be the latter to experience that. I like the “take what’s best now, always.” I just wasn’t sure if it’s too early because I feel like I want more agency experience, but the other company is literally my dream job (anyone’s dream job really) 🤷🏻‍♂️

You had me at “dream job.” Do it!
