What are some things you wish your Art Director partner would do? It can be little things or big things. Just started working with a new copywriter partner last week, trying to be as helpful as possible.

First of all, thank you for asking in the first place 👍


Just make sure you communicate. I love my partner but I find that I constantly have to be the one saying “hey making sure you saw that feedback, how do you feel about it” or “the check in is in 30 min, how are you feeling about those final tweaks”


Thank you!!!

Art Directors could afford to do a little less. Everyone else could do a little more.


All my work

What about the comps?!

Seeking advice -

I got put on a PIP and I am sure that’s a clear indication that I have a target on my back / they want me out. Should I quit before I get fired from the PIP or should I let them fire me? Not sure how it would go when I recruit for other firms - would it be better to quit so I can explain it better to my future employer?

What are the rules on connecting with agencies via 3rd party recruiters? Like, I know if a 3rd party connects you with a job opening at Grey, you can’t go to a different 3rd party right after and try again. But what if it’s a different account? What if a different CCO? Does a 3rd party recruiter own your access to the agency forever? I have one that’s mad now because they connected me with a giant agency last summer - I didn’t get the gig. (Continued...)


I need a break and am looking for senior roles, or even mid level if it’s the right place. Is this a terrible move for my career in the long run?

No kids, small mortgage, partner has a great role and well-positioned to move on if necessary.
