Depends on the intention. Did it in a way aimed to belittle or as a power play? Report their ass. Did it in a harmless way because they are too old to know better? Find a casual way to let them know so they don’t embarrass themselves again

So what age is that?

Duties for PRODUCER vs. DIRECTOR on photo/video shoots?

As an account exec, I'm the producer. I was really lucky for a few years to have a director who helped with every aspect of the shoot - budgeting, scheduling, shot list, even manual labor! That director is no longer with our agency, and our new director is very hands-off.

I'm trying to understand if I was just spoiled with our past director, or if our new director is lazy... or if it's a mixture of both.

Thanks in advance!

UK trainee solicitor working in M&A for 2 years. When qualifying I want to move into energy in Europe / Middle East (have an interest in energy on a personal level) (I'm happy to start off in oil but eventually want to move to renewables - the ultimate goal is the move out of the law side and into the business side). I also think the work life balance in M&A is terrible regardless of how long you're in the game. Has anyone ever made a similar cross over? Thanks
