    Pros

    This agency draws amazing talent and has a solid national client with T-Mobile. That keeps everyone busy & keeps the agency producing lots of work.

    Cons

    There is not a deep roster of other clients. There are not a lot of other national agencies in town if things don't work out.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    On the whole culture is healthy, would hope communication from management improves/increases.

    Pros

    -Great benefits
    -Cool office
    -Nice area
    -Nice coworkers

    Cons

    -Core ideas for campaigns/plans aren't resonated to the rest of creative, so when I'm given stuff to work on, I'm not really sure what's going on
    -Long hours when it comes close to client reviews/meetings and gaining new business, but I think that's everywhere in the industry

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Communicate where ideas are going more openly so the rest of the office (creative especially) can better the work given before them.

    Pros

    Company is on the right track for success. Lots of digital training initiatives. Getting stronger in New Business. Fun environment.

    Cons

    NY office is in a horrible location, though it is good for commuters. It would be better if we co-existed with Modem.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Gianinno may want to shake up senior leadership in the NY office to help company elevate to the next level.

    Pros

    Despite the fact that it owns many businesses, it allows them to maintain culture. As long as you have a good cultural fit in your placement, you still get all of the scale benefits of being part of a large, european group.

    Cons

    It takes a long time to get anything that impacts more than one company approved. Also, you are required to use internal partners for projects (IT) that are usually competency-challenged.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Moving in the right direction with online media focus, but need to let the groups manage to the lifecycle of the products.

    Pros

    experience, learning the ropes, known brands

    Cons

    long hours, too old school of doing things, feels like working for an 80s agency
