My thoughts are this:
EWNCW has been around for so long for obvious reasons. They manage to come back from bad creative decisions and losing creative on a whim. I can say, for the longest time I had a grudge against EWNCW and was told how they treated people here was horrible. Under the old regime, that may have been true but with the guys I've dealt with, I've been treated with nothing but class. Everyone knows how hellacious my schedule is. I don't make any bones about it. I work three 16hr shifts and two 12hr shifts a week, two kids, a wife and am the current head person in charge in JBW.
I wish I could dedicate more IC'ing time and more time in general here but that's simply not possible. I can say that when I'm asked for an assignment I give 110% and I know I put in great work considering its been mentioned over and over here. I know I'm not the top on everyone's list and I don't always get recognition... I'm not looking to take over EWNCW, I'm not looking to be creative... I'm looking to work my way up as far as I can. I appreciate being involved with EWNCW and if this were a couple years ago, it never would have happened. So all in all, you guys are doing a great job over here and I'm glad to be a part of it.
