Incapable Account Managers
March 1, 2007
Many of the account managers in traditional media agencies are assigned to one big client. The primary reason for this is that they are too stupid to be able to deal with more than one client at a time.
Our digital agency is a busy one. The small team has a lot of work, and deals with a multitude of clients and projects on a day-to-basis, often skipping rapidly between projects tackling issues and solving problems. Our primary project manager is nothing short of spectacular, juggling no less than 7-10 projects at any given time, for at least 5 different clients.
So, it’s disgusting when the account executives are so lazy that they can’t even make basic copy changes. Not one of these idiots we work with has taken the time to learn basic HTML, nor familiarise themselves with our CMS system, which is a breeze to use thanks to the excellent RadEditor.
I hate account executives. Bastards.
