    Interested in general insider's perspective on working at a major agency, specifically creatives. Is there an equivalent forum besides Agency Spy that might give me a sense of the culture and daily inner workings of the people that work at some of the more exciting agencies today? Interested mainly in the lives of copywriters/creative directors.

    Thank you guys.

    http://clientsfromhell.net (somewhat serious), http://www.inbound.org/ (bit spammy, tech/SEO focus)

    I work in agencyland for a small digital marketing shop (which I love). Seems that anyone who is successful in this industry is too busy working to have any time to post about it on forums. Large agency hours are ludicrous and there's a veil of secrecy around a lot of the internal workings.

    Best bet for an inside look is to head to a conference or awards show in a major city and hang around the open bar later in the evening :)
