whenever i’m in meetings on certain obtuse, shitty projects i don’t like and the ecd is talking i hard core tune out. i basically pretend these projects don’t exist and spend next to no time on them.

Wait. You TUNE OUT?!! In a MEETING of all places? Omg what’s next - you don’t do your timesheets before you leave each day??


Such a bad ass.


I had a partner like that. We were freelancing. I was trying to get hired, he was trying to get out of town. He’d spend all day in the phone calling his portfolio school buddies, and only work w me on ideas literally while we were walking to the shareout meetings. I admired his balls, frankly.


Such a hard worker

Such a team player.

Hi there - new to the bowl. For those that have pretty large savings/investment account balances and net worths north of 300k or even 1MM under the age of 35, can I ask how it is you’re accumulating? I have a 90k salary, living in NYC. Trying to max out retirement accounts, net worth of approx. 150K+. There isn’t much room for extra savings after-taxes and expenses etc. Is my most important goal to seek a large pay increase? I don’t see how else I can accumulate as exponentially as others. TIA.

I’m an account person but want to have a creative portfolio. I’m going to teach myself indesign and illustrator...nobody in my agency will teach me but heck I guess I can do it myself #leonardodavinci

How do we feel about creatives/agencies who took/are taking de facto blood money to work on things like Juul, Facebook, other brands who have (debatably) proven to be various levels of dangerous to people/society? There’s always some ad dipshit or agency who will take the $ and leave his/her conscience at the door, but shouldn’t we be holdin these ppl to same scrutiny as, say, tobacco agencies/creatives? Personally I will blackball anyone who worked on FB, Juul etc from my agency/hiring funnel.

I’m struggling. I left an agency I liked last year due to growth limitations and since then I’ve worked at 2 different agencies and can’t seem to find my footing. The first one seemed like a good fit at first but then it turned out to not be the best place for me so I left. At my current agency I feel super undervalued. I’m always raising my hand and offering to help where I can and no matter what I do, I don’t feel utilized or valued or part of the team.It’s really taken a toll on my confidence


I wish I partied more and did more stupid things in my early 20s and didn’t hold myself back out of fear, overthinking, and low self-esteem. I had the rest of my life to be responsible ! What was I thinking ???


Spent the wknd w/ friends who don’t work in adv & they spent 1/2 the time having an intervention to try & get me out of adv cause it’s treated me so badly & don’t understand why I still work in it.


Layoffs are coming at my agency and I’m worried for my quieter friends who provide way more value than the loudmouths, but don’t get as much credit. Sucks.
