Been doing the a minute and my opinion is based on having worked with really good and really bad peeps in the position. My answer is AS all day. Because when you're doing you're job well no one notices you're there. People online notice when your job isn't being done. No scope/bad scope No brief/bad brief Not pushing back on client Forgetting that you work for agency and are on our team Too many meetings/ not enough meetings No meeting recaps / bad meeting recaps

@amd2 I totally agree with Adopps as unsung. All the blame and none of the credit. My guys sit out of a different office and on my first visit I brought them fancy rum. All they do is get campaigns live and make sure they're tracked. No big deal.

Other than cleaning staff/greeters etc. Production. Producers get shit on by all capabilities, thrown under the bus for everything that goes wrong, occasionally thanked for what they do and yet for some reason everyone who isn’t a creative sorta wants to do/have a job in production

Hi what is the maximum salary that can be provided in Verizon for the role 'Senior Engineer Consultant-QA Test Automation' ?

Decision - I was out the door of my nationwide ins dfense firm. Was going to top local firm with a lot more clout where everything would be private pay and I’d be more on bigger exposure cases. However, my firm outmatched the new firm, made a much better bonus structure, and said I could do more work with their complex bus lit group. I’d still likely do about 50 percent ins defense but I really like the partners I work for, and I handle own cases/take depos, and get autonomy. Am I right to stay?
