Perks

Here are a few of the perks to working in advertising:

  • Staying in great hotels like Shutters when you’re on production
  • Being taken to fancy restaurants like Mr. Chow and Kittichai by producers and directors
  • Spending down-days on production in fun places like Santa Monica or New York
  • Going to foreign countries on production
  • Free lunches from great restaurants at editing studios
  • Swag from production companies that range from flash drives to iPods to baseball tickets

If you’re ever considering leaving one agency for another, here are a few things that should in no way affect your decision:

  • Staying in great hotels like Shutters when you’re on production
  • Being taken to fancy restaurants like Mr. Chow and Kittichai by producers and directors
  • Spending down-days on production in fun places like Santa Monica or New York
  • Going to foreign countries on production
  • Free lunches from great restaurants at editing studios
  • Swag from production companies that range from flash drives to iPods to baseball tickets

Advertising perks are great. But in the end, it’s all about the work. When you want to move up, move on, ask for a raise, start your own shop, win a pitch or court a client, no one’s going to ask you how many times you’ve stayed at Shutters.

You can get all of those perks by producing some very awful and embarrassing commercials, too.
