    Pros

    DBA is a team oriented agency that encourages creative thinking and praises hard work.

    Cons

    Agency life isn't for everyone. No 401K match.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    More perks (and hugs) for junior staff.

    Pros

    There are very few pros - and I'm sure many people would say working with cool clients in the fashion industry and some of the perks that go along with it would be one of them. All of that loses it's luster after a while though when you're burnt out, and that stuff isn't as "cool" anymore.

    Cons

    No, NONE, zilch, ZERO work life balance here. You are expected to work into the late hours, come in early, and work on the weekends sometimes. It is ridiculous. The main problem is clients are promised things that are NOT possible with the small team that is DBA. Morale is also ALWAYS low and the top people are into micro-managing and then taking the credit for work they didn't do. Plain and simple it's a factory that runs it's workers into the ground.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get a grip, and stop over promising when YOU AREN'T THE ONES DOING THE WORK. Also, up your salaries. We

    Pros

    very creative atmosphere that's hands on with well known clients. you get to do everything from managing social channels for millions of fans, doing instagram photo shoots, creating massive brand campaigns and working with great budgets to watch your ideas come to life. everything you do is measurable, so you can see the value in your work.

    Cons

    like all fashion jobs, it's a lot of work and long hours. not everyone's willing to put in what's needed to get the job done at times. insurance is kinda expensive and they dont match 401k.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    hire more staff

    Pros

    As my one-year anniversary is approaching with DBA I decided to post my review a few weeks earlier. This is my second company that I worked for that would be considered a start up entrepreneurial spirit environment. I had my hesitation at first about work –life balance but I truly believe this has been one of the best decisions for my career. I am constantly challenged with my position, I am working with some the most creative people in this industry, I am in a work environment where my opinions are valued and my work is not routine. I am lucky to have a great career that I learning more and more and developing my skills while balancing my family life. The company is striving and making all efforts to ensure employee satisfaction is met. Health and wellness benefits have in enhanced in 2014, the company has generous time off policy, summer days and Birthday’s off.

    Cons

    In business there is always room for growth and improvement. I am always impressed by the positive energy that is always looking or the solution for whatever problem that arises. That focus on the bigger picture helps DBA grow as a company.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    More one on one time with junior staff .
