I don't have personal experience but I guess the few places that are frequently talked about are tbwa/hakuhodo, wieden, dentsu, ogilvy and akqa?

Does anyone remember the url for anonymous suggestions to management? Not that it’ll help but would love to be able to say my peace about how they’re putting us all at risk by not enacting full WFH.

There's a lot of negativity here this week, so I'd like to thank the AOs (including those just promoted), the COs, and SCs I've worked with in the last 5+ years who always strived for more. Cheers!

Having one of those weeks. Had to travel to 2 client sites in one week, feeling totally burnt out. At what point do you know it’s time to leave? Also, any tips for weekend self care/splurges?

Slalom 🐟 how many PTO days do you get per year? Have a talk with a recruiter soon. I’m reading conflicting answers on glassdoor. Deloitte has 5 weeks.
