You should go to your “manager” for sure. Once I had created a presentation to show all the work I’ve done until there and didn’t was approved, and the approved campaigns as well. This is a great way to show volume and pro-activity. But make sure you are doing great. Hope you get your goals.

Your manager is the first person to talk to about this. It will be your managers job to communicate to you what are the steps for assessment. However asking for a raise is only just a question. If you're going to bring it up, be prepared to show concrete proof why you deserve it. The worse scenario to be in is ask for a raise but not have any proof ready for review and discussion.

Just wanted to remind my fellow creatives that agencies need us more than we need them. It’s important to be respectful, but don’t be afraid to speak up, push back, ask for a raise, ask for time off or quit. The value we bring to the table is fundamental, very hard to replace and is often overlooked by us and leadership. Agencies everywhere are in overdrive mode and creatives are being overworked to keep the engine moving. Make sure you’re compensated properly for it.

Interviewed yesterday with D for a consulting role with GPS 2ish YOE and multiple internships with big orgs. Everything went great except the qualitative part of the case which was awkward because I was emailed a sheet that had partial info about the case prior to the start, but I was supposed to act as if I didn’t? Quantitatively went very well. One interviewer had to reschedule due to technical difficulties. Idk if did well enough for the offer but the wait is🤢 Any tips on this last interv?

Anyone else having the hard internal decision of returning to work in office?
