Marketing & Advertising :: Agency versus Client-side

One of the main dichotomies which Brand Recruitment comes across on a daily basis is client-side versus agency. Some candidates are tempted by the 'cool' agency lifestyle, yet others are driven by the opportunity to look after one individual brand in its entirety month after month. How does life vary between agency-side and client-side?

The main difference is that client-side you are working for the one company and your job title could be anything from a Marketing Executive to a Marketing Director. When working agency-side, you could manage a variety of different accounts or one larger, more prestigious client account.

Both disciplines offer a different working environment and it is down to personal preference as to which one you would thrive in. Some of the candidates registered with Brand Recruitment are not interested in client-side if they are working in an agency, and vice versa for those working in-house. Some marketing job-seekers are looking to move across from an agency to client-side. Here are some observations that could sway your decision as to whether you would be keen to further your career either agency or client-side.

Brand Recruitment has recently released their Marketing Salary Review for 2010 which compares salaries for client-side and agency. A marketing manager can expect to earn on average £39,081 and an account manager £30,439. There is a notable difference but interestingly enough account managers' salaries have gone up by 6.53% from the previous year and marketing managers' salaries have decreased by -8.84%. If this trend continues then these two sets of salaries should level out. This example is similar across all the other comparable salaries; in-house roles paying slightly higher than agency.

Other differences include the hours worked. The general consensus is that those working client-side follow more 'stable' hours - nine-to-five - and those working agency-side are often required to burn the candle at both ends. These are only speculations, and, whilst most agencies will require flexibility in working hours, the perceived disparity is something which agencies are keen to dispel. Recently more and more agencies are offering days of in lieu for working late or at the weekend, along with a range of in-office creature comforts such as smoothie fridges, games rooms, and even 'nap rooms'.

The type of work carried out varies between client side and agency. In an in-house environment you will more likely manage healthcare recruiters budgets, make decisions and devise strategies. Working in an agency, you will be expected to create and implement solutions under deadlines. Naturally in-house there is less variety than in an agency where various clients will have a range of demands, yet conversely it could be said that working in-house can be more challenging as there is a need to constantly keep the company's or brand's image fresh, and remain competitive within the marketplace. However, to extend this, there are agencies which focus on one particular specialism, for example, brand extension or experiential marketing. Naturally in these environments the need to continually develop new concepts for a variety of clients is as challenging as maintaining momentum with one individual brand or company.

At the start of a marketing career, it is relatively simple to move between the two 'sides'; however, once your career is more established, many companies on both client and agency-side are reluctant to employ marketers from the other side of the divide. As such, it pays to find out as much as possible as early on in your career to ensure you make Maryland employment agency the most sensible choice.

Mailbox manatee | The Wider Image

"If you don't like the weather in southern Florida either wait 20 minutes or drive 20 miles."

Wolfgang Rattay, Reuters Photographer

I was pretty much tired of looking at thousands of soccer pictures every day at our Miami office where we edited the Brazil 2014 World Cup.

I had to be cured from a fan picture allergy I contracted during four weeks of looking at pictures of all kinds of fans from all over the world, most of them with their mouth wide open, showing their teeth to me like I was a dentist.

So I thought the best way to spend my two full days off from looking at thousands of World Cup pictures before the last two games, was to drive down to Key West on the famous and scenic Atlantic Ocean drive, the 127.5 mile-long Overseas Highway (U.S.1).

This spectacular road, completed in 1938 atop the ruins of a railroad that was destroyed by the Labor Day hurricane in 1935, connects more than 30 populated islands in the Keys. I always wanted to try out a Harley Davidson and the temperatures in southern Florida are perfect for Easy Riders.

A Heritage Softail Classic with leather saddle bags on each side for my equipment was easy and reasonably cheap to rent. But I should have read my travel book more carefully. It basically says that "the exposed coast poses dangers to those sealant over driveway on land as well as at sea. Tropical storms, hurricanes and tornados are always possibilities".

What it did not say was that the first 20 miles of US1 between the outskirts of Florida City, south of Miami, and Key Largo, would give no shelter whatsoever. Black clouds gathered over the street and a second later a hefty lightning and thunderstorm hit the road. I was wet within seconds and the visibility in heavy rain was zero. I decided to keep driving at 10 miles per hour, the maximum speed that my sight allowed. This seemed to be the better option than to stop and get hit by one of the lightning bolts that perpetually seemed to hit the concrete driveway repair products road.

As fast as the shower appeared it was gone. I was completely soaked. The good (and bad) thing about traveling in Florida by bike is the weather. Apart from my brand-new leather gloves and shoes (that were finally dry a week later when I was already back in Germany) is the fact that one dries very quickly. Driving a bike at 95 degrees Fahrenheit in the sun is like being blow-dried by a huge hairdryer. At normal cruising speed of 50 miles an hour it takes about just 20 minutes.

In Key Largo I stopped at a Cuban restaurant to take in a Latin Café, the very tasty Cuban alternative to an Italian Espresso (it is made like a regular Espresso, but a lot of sugar is already stirred into it while brewing - a real recommendation).

Key Largo is not the nicest place to stay, and after an Espresso at the Latin Café, I kept driving. My weird journey wasn't over yet. The next remarkable thing I saw along the road was a regular US mailbox built into a little wooden thatched house in South Seas style. Just a few yards down the road another mailbox drew my attention since it looked like Miss Piggy of Sesame Street to me. And the weird mailboxes did not stop. Another hut, a wooden truck and a fish mailbox followed. To me it seemed homeowners along US 1 must have a competition going on who can come up with the weirdest mailbox creation.

I decided to drive back to take a series of pictures of the strangest looking mailboxes. Believe me: there were more to come. A concrete Flipper mailbox for instance, a huge fish mouth, and several unique American versions either with flags, or the one that defies any description: a creation that looks like a pig with red lipstick and a U.S. hat.

Only a couple of miles later I passed another Flipper mailbox when a man came out of his house and put in a letter to be picked up by the postman. I stopped and asked him whether he wanted to pose for a picture for me. "Yes, of course". I told him that I was doing a series of weird mailbox pictures along the Overseas Highway down to Key West.

He had no explanation as to why people were so creative with their mailboxes. "That's how it is down here," he replied to my question.

What can I tell you? In my view the best mailboxes are to be found between Mile 97 and 57. Further down to Key West the highway is spectacular. Atlantic Ocean to your left - Gulf of Mexico to your right. It was fun to let the very special Harley sound roar in the streets and have a lot of people look at you with a mixture of abhorrence and admiration. So I decided to go back and stay overnight in one of the places I had seen along the road.

Dark clouds and falling raindrops made me stop again. I found cover in a seedy bar where people were smoking cigarettes and joints. And I learned an important lesson: "if you don't like the weather in southern Florida. Either wait 20 minutes or drive 20 miles".

Too bad that the first 20 miles were the point of no return, no cover and there was no waiting 20 minutes. But that is another story.

The next day I visited the mailboxes along the other side of the road with the uneven numbers. The best mailbox creations were again between Marathon (mile marker 57) in the Middle and Key Largo in the Upper Keys. The highlights were a cat, a bus, a turtle and a peaceful little white wooden church that belonged to a small house of worship.

I did not get wet again on the last part of my trip.

Why Where You Divorce Matters: Equitable Distribution vs. Community Property

Where you divorce matters. Each state has its own unique rules governing the allocation of assets during the divorce process, and these rules can vary significantly. A court in New York and a court in California will follow strikingly different rules in dividing the assets of divorcing couples. This sharp divergence between state laws is somewhat unusual -- in other areas, such as business law, the laws of each state tend to conform to a single norm.

Equitable Distribution States

Most states use a set of rules called "equitable distribution" to divide a couple's Maryland divorce lawyer assets. When a court follows equitable distribution rules, it divides assets between the couple fairly, in light of the couple's circumstances. The equitable distribution standard is very loose, and invests considerable power in the judge.

Judges in equitable distribution states generally consider a number of different factors when they divide a couple's assets. Typically, they consider the ability of each spouse to support him or herself after the divorce. In particular, if a spouse has forgone career opportunities to raise children, that spouse will family lawyer often receive a greater share of assets.

Courts also consider the duration of a marriage. If the couple's marriage only survived a short time, the court may prove reluctant to give one spouse money earned by the other. Courts also consider the age, general health and vocational training of each spouse. Some courts consider the amount of alimony and child support paid by a partner in deciding if an award of additional marital property is warranted. Some states have rules preventing a judge from using equitable distribution principles to drive a party into poverty. Some states also urge judges to award each spouse at least one-third of the marital property.

Community Property States

In a minority of states, judges apply "community property" rules when they divide a divorcing couple's assets. In these states, judges simply divide the couple's joint assets in half. This makes for a quick and clean division of marital property. Judges do not attempt to divide assets fairly, so they do not consider the employment prospects, age or health of either party.

Of course, judges in community property states consider a party's age and employment prospects when they award alimony and child support. In a community property state, a spouse that stayed home and cared for the children may receive extremely generous alimony and child support payments. Some community property states have extremely generous alimony laws.

There are only nine community property states. California and Texas both follow community property rules. Other western states, such as Nevada and Idaho, also follow community property rules.

If you don't feel your state's divorce laws are fair, you can always try to negotiate a divorce settlement with your spouse. Couples that elect to create a post-marital agreement can divide their assets in the manner that best fits their situation because they aren't bound to follow the laws of their state when they divide assets privately. State rules are used by courts to divide assets, but couples can elect to divide their assets as they see fit.

The vast majority of divorces end in a negotiated settlement. Very few divorces actually go all the way through trial. Obviously it's in your best interest to hire an experienced divorce attorney who can negotiate a favorable settlement for you and also be prepared to litigate if necessary. Trying to negotiate your own divorce can have devastating results as you may unwittingly be relinquishing your rights in the process.

In a society where divorce is common, divorce laws play an important role in all of our lives. Those who understand the basics of equitable distribution and community property laws better understand the inherent risks of marriage and the reality of divorce.
