The author offers opinions on personal ambition and success in advertising agency executives. The need for personal recognition in a collaborative business is said to lead to ethical abuses which are also poor management practices. The author examines his own career, and notes that as he grew older, he became more satisfied with the company's accomplishments as a whole rather than seeking credit for his part in them.
