Friday Poll. You Work Quite Hard. But Who Are You?

The most common time for Scamp readers to leave work is between 6.30pm and 7.

So it seems we're working quite hard. Not as hard as lawyers, doctors or management consultants. But harder than accountants, bank managers and the people I have been trying to get to install my Sky dish, who never show up when they're supposed to and never return my phone calls.


Actually when I say we're working quite hard... who are 'we'?

Who is actually reading this blog? I get the impression it's mostly Creatives, with a few Planners stopping by to stir things up. But I could be wrong.

Input answer now, in the top right hand corner of your screen.

Should there be an 'old homosexual' option for Kate Moss?

i think leaving between half 6 and 7 is late enough for just about any career! you have to have a life outside work and just staying in the office longer by no means makes you better at your job. do you think your creative director would give a shit if u were only in from 10am til 4pm if you consistently did good work and won plenty of awards for the agency?

Throw in a 'production company' option Scamp. I'm from one, and that idiot who called all creatives arrogant and rude a few weeks ago - she was from one too (we're not all like that you know).

I'm a creative director who leaves at 5.30 every day without fail (I don't want to miss my kid growing up). Then I work at home after I've put him to bed. Job done.

while I normally work from 9 until about 6.30, I also have gone until 2am, and once got into the office at 3.30am. Still not paid enough though.

should there be a 'media people' option? there are a fair few media planners who read this.

Robin Grant said...

And what about options for Journalist, Designer, Developer. And should there be distinctions between employees of above the line, digital or direct agencies?

Who cares what time people leave, or even arrive at work. As long as the job gets done.
What I do object to is people who say they're 'so' busy but actually sit with their feet up on their desks all day, moan about the work, briefs, account men and then leave and go to the pub and moan about the work, and actually DON'T DO ANY.
These people should leave...PERMANENTLY.

POLL SUGGESTION:
Freelance creatives, what is your daily rate and how many years of experience do you have?

POLL SUGGESTION:
Creative Directors, why oh why do you deal with headhunters? Most of them wouldn't know a good advert if it bit them on the ass. So why do you trust them to "weed out" "bad" books? Why not bypass those schmucks and answer emails from creatives pimping their books directly? You could save a few bucks on fees and also recruit creatives who don't look/sound like the often cookie-cutter-creatives who pass the headhunter screen. Plus, do you know that most headhunters treat their candidates like shit? They're generally not very nice people.
