been in the game for 6 years, and this pandemic and being crazy overworked has reached its peak. I’m thinking of taking some time off and potentially trying freelance. I’ve got a lot of past agency / client connects, but wondering if there’s anything you wish you knew before going freelance / what I should prepare for. And yes, it might be a terrible mistake to leave a good and stable job rn but as it is I am miserable and tired and I’d rather neither of those things for a bit before I jump in.

Hi guys 👋🏻
So I joined IBM 5 months back, was on bench for this long and got project just a week back.
My PSP and People Manager have been kind of lenient, cooperative and kind to me because I was never told I will be put in PIP, I have to enter project not matching my skillset etc etc.
Is it wise to appreciate both of them via blue points for their support?
I just got a mail saying I have 200 bluepoints to send out appreciations if I feel like.
Do you all really get work life balance in this industry? I surely don’t, and the stress that I get is not equivalent to what I am being paid. Agency is great, getting really good exposure, learning a lot but at the same time it is not worth the stress and money that you get. I am wondering if i should move from advertising to graphic design/branding or digital agency. Is it same situation or better? Should I also consider client side ?

Let’s talk clothing rotation. How often do you wear the same thing to the office? I try to mix up outfit combinations as much as possible but some things, like a dress, can be hard to do that with. How often is too often? I don’t want people to think I’m gross or weird!

Been a director for 3 years with same company and watched 3 vps and 2 directors come and go. There’s limited to no growth opportunity. So I started the hunt. I have a panel interview with the CEO/cro/ and cmo for a smallish >50 employees. I’m going for a vp of sales... Any ideas on what kind of questions I should prepare myself for?
I've been working towards pivoting to tech but industry news has me discouraged. Should I look in new directions or is this just a bump in the road?
Recruiter contacted me for an expert role in something that’s 1 line in my resume that I have passing familiarity with but by no means am I an expert. Should I try to proceed further with this recruiter or just tell him I’m not interested to avoid making a bad impression?
My director sends emails to us at all hours of the night and isn’t afraid to message me at 10,11,12 at night. In an ideal world I’d be able to just catch up on my own work every evening and not have t

Why we use 3 different applications(skype,zoom,teams) for chat and calls?
It's wastage of money for the firm.
I personally feel MS Teams is best and can be one stop solution.
Reason: a) all chat history, b) good connectivity, c) compact and user friendly UI etc.

I think it is ridiculous that PMs are expected to take notes during client calls. The Account team should document client feedback or if the feedback is minimal, the creative team should take their own notes on what changes the client wants. Today an AM said that a new creative was used to the PM giving them notes and micro-managing their time. I told them I don't have the capacity to micro-manage the creative and that we are all adults and could take notes during the call. Am I wrong?
