A third of the agency work force plans to move to a new job in the next year—and that could be people you work with. Deutsch LA execs will speak next week at Cannes Lions about ways to hold on to advertising people, and will unveil a new talent retention study we created with the 4As.
Why do agency people leave their jobs? The funny, profane videos below show what agency employees really say about life in the advertising business—or at least as much of that as we can show. Watch them for yourselves, but here’s a preview: account people want more credit, creatives want fewer rounds of edits, and producers want creatives to stop thinking so much about sushi.
If you’re in Cannes, make sure to watch the session with Mike Sheldon, CEO, and Kim Getty, partner and director of account management.
“Ending the Agency Talent Rotisserie”
Cannes Forum, Monday June 18, 14:00-15:00 (French time)
