    Did you get a raise? I want to push for one (always) but in the current climate I don't really have a lot of leverage...

    Tried it with client and got X (queue Family Fortunes denied noise)...tried getting agent to reduce their 14% margin and got laughed at.

    In this climate it was still an unexpected boom.

    There's always leverage. Your knowledge on the clients processes/toolset etc that the client would like to keep for continuity. The agency's margin, etc...
