What does everyone think about their finance teams? Square, cool, annoying, fun? Seems they're the blacksheep of agency life.

Our Finance team is badass and a lot of fun. If they kick back an expense report it's because they're saving me from audit drama later.

I've actually never met anyone in finance. Or business operations. Or media. Either I'm chained to my desk or we're working in silos over here... (probably both).

I spend way too much of my time explaining to Finance that, yes, we "need that many people" to handle the work. And, yes, they are all "fully utilized" (even though that's not humanly possible). And, no, if we remove that person, the others can't just "pick up the work". I swear, I get paid to vigilantly protect my team's jobs.

I was working in agencies for the last 5 years. What has shocked me most upon reflecting on my time in ad world is how everything at an agency is about ME.

There’s no loyalty to your agency or bond with your team. It’s just what can I do to get ahead. The juxtaposition between this and now working client side has been so glaring.
