Can you expense mileage when you take public transportation (costs the same as commuting to office) to client’s site?
Love it when the whole team including me has rolled off the client and this manager is still leaving notes and chasing people to fix things. They could have reviewed this work weeks and weeks ago. So annoying.
A project of mine is taking much longer to complete than expected due to unexpected technical roadblocks. Is this normal, or does my boss view this as a personal failing?

Anyone out there sell in a Voice project to a client yet? Is your agency trying to sell a Voice project to a client?
I posted a while ago that I had a pro bono client in Afghanistan who was seeking a SIV for himself and his family. They were located really far from Kabul so we were trying to find alternate ways out of the country while doing whatever we could to get his SIV application through. Well…I just learned that my client and his family were killed today. And I cannot focus on anything else. I feel like I failed.
I am an personal lines account manager/client manager (property and casualty) going on 6 years experience and I am being paid $53k a year. I am living in CA and work for a large corporation (about 1500 employees). Do you think that $53k is low or seems like adequate pay?
Do any of you (esp tech consulting) get this feeling of being constrained to a client / industry / sector/ city / country? Typically leaders of similar experience and pay levels in industry will be in global roles. However in b4 all roles are very local. Global roles if any, aren't true P&L roles and I see them more influencing roles rather than responsibility roles.
I joined wipro on 28th feb and tagged to project since then , it is showing end date 1st july 2022.
Will it get extended?or depends on manager

3 months ago: “I don’t care about results. I just want to do cool shit."
This Friday: “You need to be better at touting our incredible results."
I want the deck to be strategic (said in 3 separate emails). During the presentation “why don’t you have any executional information with costs?” That ‘s what I was looking for. 🙄😳
Features Tupac as brand image. Asks for a “celebration of Tupac” video in tandem w the movie launch. Does not want to talk about rap, his politics, or his death. Do not mention he died. Too negative.
“Please send through the below metrics. These were repeatedly requested starting early last week and I can’t understand why we do not yet have them.” ...on email string with all results as requested
You need to give things like this to us in advance to digest it before we meet to go through it.
5 min later-
We need to meet face to face every time you are presenting something for the first time.
“Totally get that the logo is placed carefully in line with design principles and to complement the overall composition and that people hate big logos on social, but can we make it bigger?”
Repeat after me: giving 👏🏼 away 👏🏼 free 👏🏼 stuff (with a street team) 👏🏼 is 👏🏼 not 👏🏼 an 👏🏼 experiential 👏🏼 activation
Sat on a kickoff call with a client today who spoke about himself in the third person - the entire time!! 🤦🏻♀️🙀
Organizing a press opportunity for an internal client. His final note to me: Please confirm time and also send directions.
Is my name Siri?! Who does that anymore?!
Client asks us to design a poster for an IMAX movie that features how blockbuster movies are made. One of the key features in the movie is King Kong so we featured it prominently on the poster as well. Client asks seriously whether we need to be concerned about offending an African American audience. I shit you not! Arguably my most jaw dropping moment in this business.
I had a client force us to write a TV script and work Harrison Ford into it somehow, just so she could meet him. It was a Pharma spot and we already had a successful campaign.
"I don't love it. But I don't hate it."
How would you all handle working on a client that your agency works for but it believes and promotes things that go against what you (and against today’s cultural climate) believes in?
I was on the media side for a client who wasn’t known for “performance” and wanted to have a campaign (really a TV/OLV) that conveyed that for US market. It went on for 18 months (cond)
Client forced us to launch this god awful campaign that is as “We are hip! YOLO!” as possible. Our audience hates it and I am low key enjoying every “wtf is this?!” comment that gets posted right now.
Client: can you send me the final spot?
*sends link (via their YouTube) to client*
Client: is that the same spot we approved?
Travels 3 hrs one way to clients office to present a deck. Sets up in the clients conference room and dials in for the team to listen in and so does the client. presents to client over the phone 🤦♀️
Present a spot featuring a women for a major media buy, the client says “we don’t want to have two women spots in a row.” So weird cause you’ve had 87 MALE SPOTS IN A ROW?
