Survive or die attitude does not work for the cattle, but this is agency life. Deal with it or go back to anonymity.
Finding inspirational mentors are getting harder to find

Advice to Management

Keep it real. Everyone can poke through the sugar coating to see what flavor of cake it is.
Stay sexy. Don't be so defensive to criticism.
Loosen the handcuffs on chargeability a bit. You might find a positive impact on churn.

    Pros

    The people - a collection of the most interesting, curious and challenging people from around the world.
    The dynamic work - it can be crazy and hectic, but I like that the work is always different and challenging. I feel like I've learned more here in 2 years than I would have in 5 years elsewhere.
    Good benefits package (including the sabbatical!)

    Cons

    It can be a lot of work when deadlines are tight and teams are small.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to your people (junior people too, from smaller officers and less illustrious accounts), they know and care a lot about the brand - and would do a lot to build it if given the opportunity.
