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.

Here's an antivaxxer story for you... My brother called my mom in a panic asking for a scan of photo of my dad's vaccine card - brother has the same name as my father. Apparently my brother is out with his bosses in NYC and they're all vaxxed and Mr. alt-right was going to be denied entry to a restaurant for an important business dinner. He got lucky but seriously, just get the vaccine already!!! (He's had COVID and recovered which is pushing him further info kuckoo antivaxxer territory 🙄) 🦠🦠

I’m an Analytics Consultant looking for industry roles as a data analyst/BI Developer. I’ve had a few recruiters and job postings ask directly for a dashboard sample. I obviously can’t give them anything I’ve worked on because of client’s proprietary data and NDAs. Has anyone run into this problem before? Did you end up making a dashboard with public data solely for industry interviews?

An interviewing company hasn’t offered me the job yet but is asking me for my visa documents so their counsel can take a look. I assume they want to see how much time is left before extending offer.

Got an informal offer to join a client (manufacturing company). 240k base, 60k cash bonus target (can shrink or double depending on company metrics) + 50k annual equity (3 yr rolling vesting). Director level which has just one additional layer between me and the Exec Committee. My contact already internal negotiated extra vacation and is working on my behalf for a signing bonus. Is it worth trying to negotiate base? Or is this already a strong offer?
