How it's all vain and shallow work, I've actually been impressed with some of the campaigns that my team has worked on before, especially those that touch on culture and where we all come from.

The marketing industry is often seen as a necessary evil. However, the reality is that marketing is an essential part of any business. Marketing helps businesses to reach new customers and grow their businesses.

The biggest stereotype about the marketing industry is that it is full of people who are disingenuous and only care about their own self-promotion. They are often seen as being dishonest and manipulative, and many people believe that they cannot be trusted.

I was working at a Hotel one night & I saw a man appearing on two different floors, then in the stairwell. The man was in his 70’s or 80’s. He was wearing nothing but tidy whiteys. When he got to the front desk I asked “is everything alright? Are you okay?” (Assuming he may be senile),He wasn’t senile, he went swimming & wanted to make me uncomfortable and started to flirt while in his sopping wet see through tidy whiteys- and of course I had to clean up the water he tracked through the lobby.

I'm coming to the end of a contract term and being converted to FTE.

The offer was presented to me by the hiring manager and not HR/Recruiter. To me it is a lower base salary offer than expected, so I asked for info on the total compensation package (base, benefits, bonus, stock/rsu, etc.), which I was told about when they took me on under the contract with the intention to convert.

Hiring manager sends me an email with only standard benefits, no bonus, etc. Are these red flags?
