    Pros

    This company is great if you are looking to get your feet wet in the industry, and to gain experience in New York agency life. The people (for the most part) are really great, and they make it enjoyable to come in every day. Bayard gives you many tools to grow your skills, they provide you with many online training tools, they try to stay up-to-date on design software, and if you are lucky, will pay for outside classes if it will aid the company. They have company staff catering on holidays, which is always nice. They are lenient on vacation days, as long as it is within reason. Scheduling at Bayard is pretty great. As long as you're getting your work done, on time, you can leave early for a doctor's appointment, or go to the gym on your lunch break. It's a pretty relaxed schedule, which you don't find at many other places. It's almost like a big dysfunctional family. Which to a lot of people may be a really appealing quality in a workplace.

    Cons

    There are a lot of challenges working at Bayard. The senior management style is absolutely bizarre. There is no room for growth at Bayard, unless you are favorited. Because they do play favorites. Everyone else has to come to the realization that you will not get a raise. Unless someone is fired. Money is the number one concern at Bayard. Management will cut corners in every which way to save a penny. This might mean cutting someone down to a part-time employee even if there is work piling up, firing an experienced worker to hire someone they would pay less for the same position, even resisting getting new office furniture that is ripping and breaking because it's "good enough". The workers are always scared for their lives that they will walk in and get fired, because it happens too often. Bayard is a revolving door. And will always be.

    For a company built upon "telling stories" and "sending the right message", this company does not know how to communicate. There is a complete disconnect between the other offices around the country and the NY headquarters. This leads to some terrible client meetings with angry, dissatisfied clients, because information internally had been poorly communicated. Also, Bayard does not train their employees, WHATSOEVER. No matter what position you are in, you are not given a handbook, a set of rules, a list of daily tasks, an overview of clients, a training session to learn the time management tool, nothing. Employees are simply supposed to "figure it out" by observing. This leads to confusing and frustrating daily interactions, as those who are new make many mistakes (which is not their fault) and are then looked at as "not bright" or "non-thinkers". If upper management took more time to train their employees on how to run programs, and communicate with a unified "Bayard" language, it would be a smoother process for everyone, and maybe people would have better attitudes.

    Upper management at Bayard are secretive, unprofessional, and close-minded. When employees speak their minds or voice their concerns, they are shunned. They are even penalized, and then ignored. And eventually fired. Some people who are part of upper management don't even know how the company runs. They don't know what their employees do, what their names are, or realistic expectations of their workday.

    The workplace itself is stuck in 1991. Though there has been a recent partial face-lift with a couch and some paint, the office itself still has dirty floors, a pretty nasty kitchen, and deteriorating chairs and desks. You just don't feel clean there. They don't even like inviting clients in because they are too embarrassed. But as previously mentioned, anything to save a penny. Asking for new office supplies is as scary as asking for a raise.

    The bottom line is: Bayard will never change. And you really can't change them. Best to know that now. You won't stay long.

    There's too much to say. And you won't even listen anyway.
