Dont take this personally, but you will be managed out the door.
Think like an owner!
We are a technology company! Ha! You can keep dreaming - everything you own or have is licensed platforms from all the “real” technology companies.
Been in business since 1784 - it’s akin to meaning we are old, inflexible, not up with the times.
Named this and named that - oh really? So if you asked your clients and targets what your known for I’ll bet dollars to donuts the first thing out of their mouths will NOT be “named for this, won that award, named for that”. You want to be recognized then win something of real value.

Not sure why so many people are annoyed with “Digital,” the group does a lot of the same work that was done before within strategy units in the different business lines, they’ve just centralized it and put it under Roman.
