What shops are doing the best and most innovative digital/tech focused work right now? (examples: Instrument, Work & Co., R/GA, Huge). Are there any up-and-coming agencies to be on the lookout for?

Work & co is top of the class for me. Always flawless executions.

Most of these “innovative” places just make things that end up as award show case studies with very few people using them in the world and actually make their money off banners and micro sites. I’ve always admired Wieden for doing cool things for Old Spice and KFC that people actually like and use.

I worked at two of them and did nothing but banners.

Basic, Jam3, AKQA. There are many smaller ones that I can’t think of right now but they have a very small client base.

Applying to industry after 2 yrs in a data-heavy strategy consulting role, and running into an odd problem: people are automatically putting me into a "heavy-quant" box and becoming apprehensive of my fit for a business role (strategy, FP&A, etc). 2 Qs: 1. Does this sound plausible, or am I overthinking based on a small sample? 2. How would you highlight your fit/interest in moderately quantitative roles? Consultants generally like my "Context> result> personal contribution" format of bullets

Pregnant and in first trim with severe nausea. Was put on a team that is super understaffed and have hard deadlines like every week as the client is going through diff transactions. Partner says I can log off whenever I need but Sr manage keeps pushing work to my plate and asking why work is not finished. How could I deal with the situation? Should I just tell partner I need to roll off the team?

I have multiple client projects. One client talks a lot and keeps going over slotted meeting times. I am frustrated because I can’t find a good way to cut the client off and move to my next meeting. I even tried extending time with him. This client thinks his problems are the most important and doesn’t understand the concept that I’m across multiple engagements. I’m sick of being late all of the time and having to apologize to my other teams. What do you guys do when this happens?

Ladies who also abide by the “expecting better” philosophy that a glass of wine every once in a while is totally fine during pregnancy… I am going to a work women’s happy hour tomorrow.
