Just started a new job as an LMHC 7 weeks ago. It’s fee for service. Was told during the interview I’d have a full caseload always and have more stable clients. However, I’ve been getting at least 1 no show/cancel per day and found out that I don’t get paid for it unless the client pays. Now with these no show / late cancels, I have less clients and no new intakes are being put in my schedule even though I’ve alerted the intake dept several times. Is it bad I want to leave already?

Working on a deal that is unbelievably messy. Client barely responds and when they do, they ask us to do stuff outside scope. Other side is providing crap first drafts of everything.

Question for both agency and brand-side women- how much do you normally spend or charge on production? Background- I’m now brand side (formerly agency) and our media is under $10million in working dollars plus fees, but we spend nearly $5million on production and creatives services and fees. This was shocking to me, our agency typically scopes our creative fees and production as less than 20% of cost of working media dollars on the HIGH end. Perspective?
