I’m looking for a new job!! It has been impossible to build a good relationship with my manager, he isn’t transparent with me and never provides any constructive feedback so I have no idea how I’m performing. I recently asked for a raise since I completed all my assigned projects for this year plus a few that I took on due to resignations and was denied with no reason. I’m so checked out and looking for a new job and manager that I can learn from and will help me grow, any help is appreciated!

Efficient & effective ways to consume content
After 10 yrs in the industry, I have no problem finding quality work-related content. But with 2 young kids and a demanding job, I feel like I have no time to consume it. I tried blocking 1 hr in the morning but would mostly skip it to dive into work. I cram in podcasts while I exercise but it often feels like a long listen to get to anything insightful. Any practical tips/tricks/ways to make it a sticky habit?
What’s your agency’s unique take on the “The Big Idea” (and don’t say “The Big Idea” unless you’re Ogilvy). Interested to see the latest thinking from agencies putting their mark on it, expressing a unique creative POV.
Are any of you finding it hard to think on their feet in front of people or when asked to hit the whiteboard? I do just fine when I'm iterating on my own but feeling stressed and thrown off balance when I have to do it in front of a crowd. Any tips? Is it lack of experience or am I just a slow/solo thinker? Mmm...

Always better to leave a job on a high when you’re liking things than when you’re burned out, frustrated, or desperate for change.
Agree, especially because you don’t really know what the other job will be like until you’re in it.
I guess the advantage of leaving on a high note with good respect from your colleagues is that you’ll likely be welcomed back if it doesn’t work out.
