When I was at BBDO, we get executive health services. It’s a one day “retreat” where you get checked from top to bottom—probably to check our sanity for staying in the industry for so long

👆this. I had a VP title years ago and it was meaningless since they handed out SVP and EVP titles like candy.

That was my title for the past year or so. But I really couldn’t tell you. I’m freelance now, so it really couldn’t have been all that.

Depends on the agency

At some agencies it’s seen as a nice recognition for loyalty, or hard work or a special achievement. None of which qualified you for the next real level up, but was worth rewarding in some high profile but otherwise meaningless way.

But now it doesn’t mean much where I’m at. It just means you’re an “officer” of the company and that you can sign contracts etc.

At our agency it unlocks more vacation days, opens you up for the bonus pool, and gives you some other small benefit perks.

As a VP, you're generally more a part of the "leadership team" and have more say in the direction of the agency as a whole. Well theoretically.

I’ve got a bachelor’s in Economics (4.0 bby) but I’ve been stuck in PMO roles the last few years. I feel like I was dumb for not doing something more STEM related like computer science during undergrad. Seems like there’s no Econ jobs that don’t also require comp sci knowledge. Maybe I just don’t know how to market myself with an Econ only degree? Feels like I need at least a masters to do anything with Econ without the comp sci part. Should I just learn a programming language lol
