Who remembers the smoking floors in the Leo Burnett building?

Remember it well. Thank God I was on a non smoking floor. Too much time on a smoking floor destroyed your clothes (not to mention lungs).

When was that? The last place I worked at that had an indoor smoking room was in a different life before I got in to advertising at the beginning of my career in the mid 90s

It was still there in the mid 2000's, I don't remember what floor, I was pretty young and green in those days. Hell, who knows if it was actually "okay" but a meeting on that floor meant smoke em if you got em.

I remember my coworker and me going into my boss’s tiny office on 19 and she would close the door and chain smoke while we went over things. Good times.

I did. I sat in em with the broken floor fans and broken chairs. Amazing friends who aren’t dead since.

When I started at JWT NY in 2000, everyone smoked in their offices. When NYC finally banned smoking in bars, they followed suit. And people were pissed! Definitely the end of an era.

They had smoking floors/rooms until the mid-late 2000s at the Leo building in Chicago, apparently the building management just paid the fines.

I think our review system is a joke. How can you have a 3-month review process for a 6-month cycle? It’s a bit too thorough - if it is 😂😂
