If you do not feel comfortable seeing people get canned and finding out friends of yours got fired, by all means, drop your ad job. Seriously, in five years I worked at 6 agencies and in that time I saw enough people get fired and quit to form a high school class. In agency #2, 8 people got canned… from an agency that was 20 strong. Third job, I saw 5 people get the axe and the sixth was me. In agency #4, in a span of six months, 12 people left… not fired but left… from the creative department. Add to that number a couple of others that dropped the job. By the way, I was #13 and after me came 7 more. The fifth agency has had about 15 casualties in the last year and a half… and it was also a small agency and the sixth agency? Well I hadn’t been there a month before two senior people got euthanized. That’s more than fifty people I’ve seen leave a company I work for.
Some were understandable… the other 47 weren’t.
