What happened to Erik Vervroegen? was he fired from tbwa?

The NYC office pushed him out but because he has a relationship with the Google Play client, they use him as a freelance ECD. For the last year the account has been run out of the Los Angeles office (I think to keep Erik out of their office) but recently the client requested that everything be run out of NYC. So last I heard, TBWA is going to create a satellite office. It’s a whole lot of trouble to go through just to avoid telling the client the truth about him. I’m in the LA office and I’m not sure happened in NY but he was such a mess to work with.

Genuine question: why do people bill over 2100 in this market? I can see how wanting to be a “good associate” could get you to agree to go slightly above your hours requirement, but don’t understand how people end up billing 2500+ hours… do you really think you’d get fired if you said no to more work? Is someone legitimately forcing you to work that much? Don’t see how extra bonuses are worth it either.

Fellow Auditors, Since we all are aware that there has been a sudden pay rise of 20-30% in recent past (6M - 12M) specially for experienced staff to Manager level due to acute shortage of resources at ground level.

Is it the Equity Partners or the Client 🤔 In case Partners, than I really think that even though current hot market might have boon for the most but absolutely nightmare for the Partners group.

At my last agency those conversations were always led by people of color from every level.
