Which is an easier change?

As an employee, do you think it is easier to go from working on the client-side to the agency-side, or vice-versa?

A couple of notable examples on the client-to-agency side:

Moves from the agency-to-client side tend to be a little less obvious, for a couple of reasons:

  • Agencies don’t want to admit that they’ve lost talent, which could mean a loss of future business.
  • Hiring someone away from an agency just doesn’t seem to have the same newsworthiness as an agency hiring someone away from the client side.

What do you think? And what about agency-to-agency? Is that its own ballgame?
