Was this Pharma side, or consumer? Healthcare is very particular about work being shown when behind all the NDAs and proprietary stuff. I’ve never had a problem with consumer side, as long as it was produced or ran.

If you’re going to have it on a site, you need to have it password protected with a good password and change it occasionally. Even if the work was published, it technically is only approved for distribution for a set period of time.

All pharma work should be password protected, always. Even if it’s out there on tv, you will still be in deep shit if you don’t have a password. I actually knew a client who found someone’s portfolio with their tv spot on it, called the CCO and tried to get the person fired. It’s ridiculous, but you need to do it or risk consequences

Pharma agencies should do refreshers to remind employees of this protocol. We signed a lot of stuff when we got hired.

Was the work published? Your ex colleague was right. Was the work still confidential? Your ex colleague was wrong.

PDFs can technically be shared with others/stolen, which is why I try to avoid using them.

Most likely: The client will go to the agency who will then go to you, even if you don’t work there anymore. You likely signed an agreement at some point related to this

This is pharma (that’s why I posted here). Agree, CS1 - I don’t think my current brand would be thrilled if I put even currently running or old work on my site with no password. Do you use a pw-protected site or a PDF for your work?

I use a password protected site since it’s mostly video, but if it were writing writing I would prob upload a doc to a Dropbox and delete the link after it served its purpose

Ask your PM to tell you what the client contract says on the matter

Would a client be less inclined to go after you if you don’t work for the agency anymore?

^ agree. Ask them to do an annual refresher

Was forced out of a firm after more than a decade last year. Started my own law firm. Today I got a new client who called my old firm and fired one of my ex colleagues to come with me and told them they were coming to my firm. The colleague and I were close, but this is business and I don’t feel bad. Although I have been acquiring unhappy clients of my old firm for a while now, this was the first who was on a current retainer with the former firm. Life is much better on my own. :)

Anyone who got promoted did not get MA. The salary of a senior at the immediate lower level is almost equivalent to a just promoted person. E.g. salary of a senior A is around 10L, but of a just promoted AC is around 10.7 - 11. The salary of a 6 month AC is around 12.5L. The same type of gap is present at AC C layer, only magnified, differences going as far as 2L in a difference of 6 months. 1. How is this fair to promotees? "Treat people right"? 2. Are we really just gonna sit and accept this?
