Annoyed AF bc a partner pushed me to get something to him Saturday, saying it was a Monday deadline- I was on vacation and had to spend hours in the hotel on it, and he still hasn’t looked at it. I asked if I could handle the next week and he said no. Rude AF
Has anyone here negotiated dog care expenses while traveling for work? I am single, live alone, and have two dogs and it’s not cheap to board them or have a sitter when I travel ($100/day). I am in talks for a job with lots of travel and it would be a significant cost to me to care for them while I’m away. Asking friends to take care of them isn’t a long term solution for a job with 25% travel. Any tips for how to bring this up and ask for this to be covered contractually?
No questions about travel...? Surprised none have come in yet. Have been traveling for 22 years now so racked up a lot of miles. 3 million miler on AA
About to join KPMG Lighthouse in a couple weeks. Received an email about a KPMG lakehouse on campus event in Orlando. I think it is supposed to be an orientation event. With Omicron looming and unvaxxed toddlers at home, I am wondering if I can say NO to this travel. Any KPMG folks who know if this is avoidable and not going to put me in bad light?
EY Bahamas is hiring and I can probably get an offer, should I move to EY GDS Bahamas? Whats it like there ? Can I travel in US freely if I have Bahamas work permit?
Heard about an unbelievable offer for the AA MasterCard - 500 bonus points when you sign up on the flight. I signed up for 7 of them, I was so excited!
I’m very bullish on recovery and a boom in dining, vacations, travel etc. What symbols should I be looking into that are still reasonably priced and not burdened with massive debt?
For the last 7 yrs, every vacation I would send postcards to my family for fun (who doesn’t love getting snail mail!)
Anyway, my 10yr old niece asked me what my job is. I said I used to travel to help clients implement software and be trained on the new software. Now I do this from home.
She tells me she thought my job was to travel around and send people postcards. 😂😂 that would be an amazing job.
Any tips on affordable hotel, hostel or university housing for a short and last minute weekend trip in Toronto?
What happened to the online form to request missing points on Marriott? I’m missing all my green choice points from the last 2 months. Do we have to call to get those added back now?
Want to book refundable travel because we can only go if they remove mask mandate (2 year-old will never wear one). Hoping for late April, right after current mask mandate has been extended to.
I imagine points is our best bet, and I have them with AA, United, and Chase, but no status beyond what credit cards provide.
FINALLY saved up enough for a Leica kit - I was very excited for the CL - but the shop suggested the Q2 as a really great travel camera, and now I’m not sure what to get. Anyone here shoot Leica? I’m looking for a simple to use, compact travel camera. I love the lens -swap on the CL (one day want to own an M and SL kit) - but the Q2 has me thinking…

How the hell do you get a decent hotel for Cannes Lions? Bunch of us from my company are going for the first time, and the stuff that’s left over that’s in center of town is crap. Is there a secret? Company won’t let us rent a villa because it would be “staying together”…

How do you deal with the sedentary lifestyle that comes with being overloaded at work and needing to be in front of the computer most days, sometimes into the AM just to get things done? I’ll have a good week where I get to go to the gym everyday, and then 2 weeks of it being impossible, having super late nights, throwing off my sleep schedule and still not keeping up. It’s frustrating and feel hopeless when lack of time is literally the factor, not some excuse

Can I get some advice from the “been there done that” OGs? Is leaving consulting just before 2YOE and promo to industry (lower prestige) or another consulting firm (boutiques of lower prestige) advisable for long term career or is it too soon? Have several opportunities at $110-120k and I make 80k now expecting around 90k at promo. Thanks!

Anyone else struggle with the strategic/bigger picture element of account management? I like working with clients, but I struggle with these aspects. I’m the only Account lead on 3 accounts (aside from a director who isn’t too present) - no AE or AAEs for support. Most of my days are crammed with day to day work just to keep projects moving; it doesn’t leave a lot of time for building these skills up. Can’t tell if I’m just not cut out for AM or if it’s worth it to keep trying to improve this...

Has anyone else found HR timelines to be a crawl during all of this year? Top 5 bank or smaller bank, it’s totally glacial pace, it doesn’t matter.
I try to normally be engaged and quick with stuff client side or internal stuff but it truly blows my mind how slow HR is on things. Like if I was to be this slow client side, I’d be fired.
Does anyone have similar experiences over the past year?

Does anyone else need to clean their entire apartment / life before starting concepting for a new brief or nah?
I used to love advertising. I wanted to win awards. I was always pitching proactive work. I didn't mind weekends if it meant I got to work on a good brief. But now I'm just trying to get through the days. I couldn't care less how the work turns out, as long I can clock out at 6 and have my weekends free. I'm just going through the motions right now. Has anyone else experienced this? What did you do about it?

The worst creative I’ve ever worked with was just hired by W+K. Never made any decent work. Didn’t care about the work. We got awesome briefs creatives dream of and they wouldn’t lift a finger, putting extra work on the rest of the team. They mostly went unnoticed in the agency except by the people on their immediate teams who hated working with them. When we found out they were leaving, everyone assumed they got fired. So how does this person wind up at W+K?
Unionize? After checking out a lot of the posts here, it's seems as if everyone is experiencing the same level of shit-kicking;weekend work, low pay with no reviews, etc. Is a creative union viable?
