Client offered TC ~220k (170k base) with travel comp for a SM job, top 40 biotech by market cap.

I’m working with a client who doesn’t have a lot of production experience. We shared the treatment of our reco director and they’re asking to see all other treatments before reviewing the reco. I’ve never had this happen. Has anyone had to share treatments with clients for all bidders? I’m worried they will choose a treatment we aren’t aligned with creatively.

Hello all, need some advice. Am currently working for a government consulting agency, but wishing to leave due to the way the project is being managed...I am in at least 4-5 hours of meetings a day, so barely have time to prepare for demos, preparation of slides for the client, nevermind being able to write decent stories(tickets)...

No wonder she's always bored and borderline out of her mind. She's gonna get a wake up call pretty soon...
