What would you do if your agency started doing work for the Bloomberg campaign—or someone you have major issues with? How would you respond if you were asked to work on it?

You have a major issue with a guy who’s spending millions of his own dollars to remove Donald Trump from office, whether he’s the candidate or not? This is how Trump wins. Because his supporters are willing to compromise almost everything and democrats will compromise on almost nothing.

it’s like when Ogilvy started working on CBP. speak to your supervisor about your comfort level - if you’re not willing to work on it for personal reasons, and it’s fine by your team, they’d ideally never put you on the account. if you are required to work on it, find a new job. if your problem is that the agency is working on the campaign period, i think you’re SOL

He's a lizard person. I'd agree only if they allow me to photoshop tiny lizards across his campaign. If they don't want said tiny lizards on his billboards, then they should not give it to me.

I mean, do you feel like you can talk to your boss about it? It really depends on how comfortable you feel with your position at the agency. I’d probably voice my concerns to whoever was in charge before working on it- just so there’s a chance they can put someone else on it instead.

I agree. Ask to be taken off the account. Say it nicely, and it will be fine.

You’re in the wrong business then. Your job is to position your clients to succeed. If you want to make those calls, then you need to own your own shop or go client side with a company whose values align with your own.

It’s different when it comes to politics. Imposing a political candidate onto employees long after they got the job puts an unfair burden onto the employees. It should always be optional.

I am getting flooded with recruiters “impressed” by my experience. I just need a gut check to make sure this is standard language and I shouldn' think I am actually well positioned for these jobs.
