If you're looking for good company culture, definitely leave Ogilvy. I am much happier and healthier for leaving.

like

I am much happier and less stressed now than I was during my time at Ogilvy. My work/life balance is better and I am getting more creative opportunities.

I went in-house after 8 years in agencies. Be warned that while work life balance is better, pay can still be good, etc, there different frustrations. They're usually centered around people simply not having marketing experience or backgrounds. So you end up explaining and fighting for basic tenets of advertising. Depending on the kind of team you move to, some aren't always receptive to in-house teams because they think they can do it themselves. All that said, I don't regret the switch.

like

That's why I don't regret the switch. No one ever treats me like a servant or that I should be grateful for working for them.

Freelance! Do it! NOW is the time. Follow writers who are where you want to be and plan/research how to prep to get clients. It's beyond satisfying. My goal is to scale my business and work less than 20 hours in the next few months.

I have a hard time getting along with my future mother in law. She likes to talk about money, judging people/me and I never heard her compliment others. I understand it maybe her culture and background make her that way. But every time after she visited us I am extremely unhappy. She is picky about food I make, always want things changed in my house etc. Herself is not wealthy like she acts so maybe that’s why she comes off that way? She visits us quite often and I don’t know what to do…

Has anyone here gotten pregnant with someone they were dating vs married to? Can you share your experience? Is that still frowned upon in 2022? I know culture also comes into play for some. Even though it seems we are more progressive now - none of my friends had kids before marriage. Especially those with professional careers etc. It seems like the whole first comes love then comes marriage and baby thing is still standard. Does it really have to be though? Especially if you're in your 30s.
