Who'd be a suit?

I've often wondered why on earth anyone would want to pursue a career as a suit.

It's a job that as far as I can see is the meat in a sandwich which is stuck somewhere between a rock and a hard place.

Clients make ridiculous demands. You make sure they are met.

You tell the creatives about the clients demands. They tell you where to go. Usually.

So you go back to the client and try to reason with them.

But the clients says jump and has no expectation other than you asking them how high.

So then you stew over the problem. A lot.

Before trying yet again to get the creative people to do what the clients has asked.

And so it begins again.

Honestly why oh why would anyone want to be an account service person?
