Who here has pitched an idea only to be told that it's a dumb one but then you see a commercial and it's your idea?

I haven't had it go quite that far without me knowing yet, but I've definitely had a few guys claim my idea as their own. ....in the same meeting where I proposed the idea...

We lost a pitch for a client who later produced our idea in-house and got a lot of PR. That stung.

Oof, that's a tough one to recover from

It happened once to me. It was such a disheartening moment. It was like in the movies: one of our coworkers who was very deep into the project left for a better offer and in just one week, our idea was being promoted all over Youtube.

This happens a lot in the ADS industry, I've been in idea storms where my colleagues come up with some crazy ideas and then you see them turned into a campaign but someone else gets the credit. The worst thing is that the credit goes to someone else.

They are low practices, but practices at the end of the day, sometimes I have exposed ideas that seem out of the norm, but my immediate boss comes and explains it to the bosses about it and takes the credit, I'm getting tired of this happening, there should be a way to patent ideas.

In my opinion, there are two types of people, those who have good ideas and do not know how to explain them, and those who identify a good idea and improve the explanation to take the credit, I see it every day and I have even put it to the test and I have succeeded. The important thing is that the idea is fulfilled, isn't it?

True, easy to say that's what matters when you're the one getting paid for it lol

That kind of stuff happens all the time at our workplace, people stealing ideas and passing them as their own. I hate it here lol but thankfully I'm already looking at other jobs

I was just wondering if you ever feel like we're in a race to see who can come up with the most ridiculous marketing tactics?

It seems like there's always a new "trend" that comes out and everyone jumps on it. And then, a few months later, everyone jumps off it and starts something new.
