Had an informational interview with an old acquaintance this morning. Basically, he tried to scare me away from ever wanting to work at an ad agency.
"Everyone thinks it's glamorous and fun - that working here is one big brainstorming session where we toss around wild ideas like beach balls. It's a lot of hard work and long hours. And being an account exec, I have to account for my time in 15 minute increments."
Can you imagine if they actually asked me to be accountable here? Maybe I should try it sometime just to see what a 'typical' day is like.
