This happened at my old agency in Vegas. There were several couples and it worked out fine. There was only one instance I know of where it became a major conflict of interest.

Our lead was in a relationship with someone on our team and he was getting her the better opportunities, that he was also denying to others who were more qualified. Of course, the agency did nothing when this was brought to the attention of HR.

Eventually, they ended up alienating everyone to the point where she got fired and he quit in protest.

Karma baby!

When you leave a position for another agency, do you tell your manager where you are going? I will potentially be resigning for the first time for a promo elsewhere, so unsure of procedure.

Also, if I call my manager (CD) to let him know, I don’t also need to call my boss’s boss (ECD / VP type), correct? I would think I just include him in the resignation email along with my CD and Exec producer (I’m production side).
