Each year, a third of the agency work force will move to new jobs. Deutsch LA execs will speak next week at Cannes Lions ( http://www.canneslions.com/the_festival/festival_programme/event.cfm?event_id=81 ) about ways to hold on to advertising people, and 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 (at some fictional agency, naturally) 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 creative to stop thinking so much about sushi.
