    Don't do it. Go somewhere else.

    Pros

    That's a tough one. Nice view from a couple of windows. Walkable neighborhood with good shopping.

    Cons

    Owner is so old school it's scary. Internal tools are beasts. No strategy or vision for the company. No full time creative director, strategist or digital expert. Senior management distracts, distorts and doesn't blink an eye about lying to staff, clients or potential clients. Teams are separated into 3 buildings which makes working together difficult. Passive aggressive behaviors bypassing direct conversations regarding issues which ignites more chaos. Nightmares are better than this company.

    Advice to Management

    Hire a general manager and a creative director who have current digital skills and passion. However, if you're not interested in being relevant just keep doing things the same way.

    Pros

    They work with big clients.

    Cons

    Where do I begin? If you're a creative you'll be worked to the bone and be given an extremely LOW salary. ( high budget projects though, where's that money going?)

    You'll be placed in a chaotic atmosphere where you'll be given unrealistic deadlines and be expected to stay late.

    There's no trust, the owner hired two people dedicated to monitoring every move you make on your computer.

    Advice to Management

    Be respectful and honest. Pay your employees fairly.

    Pros

    Big clients, nice part of town

    Cons

    The owner creates a a chaotic and stressful atmosphere which reflects the owner's personality. It's not organized, respectful or efficient and the directives change daily. Checks and balances usually present in business environments do not apply here. You will be miserable unless it's your first job and you don't know any better.
