What agencies don’t????

likefunny

Almost all agencies still require them. Would be faster to ask for the ones that don’t.

I want to know who isn’t doing them so I can apply there.

All of them?

Yeah, ours definitely does. The search for an alternative quantifiable unit of agency value continues...

Anomaly scrapped timesheets a few years ago. Not sure if that’s still the norm there.

Most of them do. I can’t remember the exception it’s one of those shops like Anomaly. How else do you bill your client if the SOW’s are based on estimated hours of labor? Until that changes there will be timesheets. At all IPG and WPP companies there are for sure.

McCann does.

👆🏼 But Chiat LA doesn’t!

Can someone explain the difference between FB’s Partner Solutions Manager and the Strategic Partner Manager? From an initial recruiter call, it seems the SPM provides the consultative product recs while the PSM onboards the client onto that product and tracks performance to provide actionable recs as needed. Anyone know career growth and salary for these two? I don’t want a sales heavy/only lateral growth role like their client solutions manager roles so these seem like good compromises?

Anyone ever experience being on a project where your supervisor or lead just tells you they don’t like your work and to just fix it without providing any reasoning or how to fix it?

I have ADHD and anxiety already and this is just heightening it all and I’m paranoid I’ll get fired at any moment…

This is about internal reviews. The one that happens before client presentation. In my experience, these reviews have become very tasking over the last few years. Everyone is riding on assumptions. Biases trickle in. “Hey what about my idea?” is often thrown in. It maybe a thing in my agency. But if its happening at your place as well, how do you guys tackle it? It often happens that the client refers to the lack of idea that dies in these internal reviews. Any words of wisdom? Any insights?
