When you meet with a partner for a new assignment. Do you bill for that time? I’m a new associate, so I don’t know. On the one side it seems that meeting and conferring for an assignment requested by the the client would be billable since it’s using firm time and resources. On the other side, we are just talking about how to tackle the assignment and not tackling the assignment itself.
Do you ever get on a client where there’s barely any work to do at all? I’ve been on an engagement for 4 months now and I work maybe 3 hours max a week. Some days I feel guilty but others I’m just like - let me do the bare minimum to look good and not get fired.
Would you jump ship to a better agency on a worse client? I have a possible opportunity to go to a better shop to a client in the same category. I have no problem leaving my agency but am on the fence about leaving my great client. What's more important, the ship or he client relationship/work you're currently doing for a great client?
Budget got cut but the client still wants the same level of work...uhhh that's not how money works. https://giphy.com/gifs/baby-confused-idk-CPskAi4C6WLHa

What do you do when you’re starting on a project but you can’t get information you need from the client. For example, you’re trying to start running social ads but the client doesn’t know their login info, how to add you to Business Manager, or is non responsive.
Those who change into comfortable clothes before long flights, how/where do you do it? No good place at client site and usually in too much of a rush to stop back at the hotel

A weird situation. Staffed at a bank. Love the bank. My client stakeholder does not like me (he is a bit weird), but I love the broader team there. How do I circumnavigate this to get a job at this bank?
