If it’s the job you want who cares what age/level youre going in at? The level is really more an ego battle than anything. I started as an analyst in a MO role at 30/31. I made vp at 35. Who cares if it’s what you want. Just do well and you’ll reach your goals.

I took an analyst 3 role at 27. 29 as associate now. Figure no different than if I started an MBA at 26. Happy I did it I make a lot more than I would have otherwise

No, MBA associate perhaps.

It depends of your goals... Be millionaire -> IB offers a safe path to.. Have children / have a nice WLB / etc -> maybe stay where you are

In continental Europe the average ib analyst age can be higher too if eg you look at France where ppl do a MSc and take year long internships. Many are on the 25-26 age when being A1. A bit shitty, as best case your be an associate in your 29-30, but not so bad..

My therapist just told me I'm depressed..do you ever feel like they tell you things you hear a lot or could have figured out on your own?

If most CDs want to be making the work themselves, and were just the role because they excelled as creatives but maybe don't like or aren't meant to be managers, why do we have this agency model where there's tons of hierarchy instead of having teams of creative directors who come up with ideas and do the work. In terms of nurturing talent, let the other agencies do it and then hire on people when they're senior.
