Ever get really uninspired by all the ads out there and want to switch careers because of how impossible agencies and clients seem to make actual good creative work?

Literally every commercial on tv is awful, brands have no self awareness, and I feel like things keep getting worse as the years go by. Am I out of touch or too negative?

Has anyone here ever worked/considered working in “brand management” at a CPG giant like P&G, General Mills, etc? I just looked up salaries...it’s like $180k for roles with 4-5yrs experience, and those offices are all in the Midwest. You could buy a mansion in Cincinnati with that kind of money! Or more preferably, save 80% of your earnings while working for a few years and then buy somewhere you’d actually want to live. Plus it’s client-side, and something tells me the hours would be super easy

Compensation Question: I just got promoted to senior associate w/highest rating possible. Went from roughly 77k to 88k. W/ inflation and promotion year I feel like that was low. I've been interviewing. How much should I be asking for? I don't want to low ball myself. But I don't want to scare them away. I do end to end erp implementation and I lead finance side with full scoping, req gathering, design, implementation, testing, training and PM work with budgeting etc. Just for some background.

How do yall deal with condescending co-workers who constantly poke fun at your Southern accent?
