I worked at Crispin Porter part-time (less than an year)Pros
Overall, the people are incredibly nice, driven, and help create a very great work atmosphere. There are a few bad eggs, but that happens everywhere. The company is creatively driven, and the emphasis shows. The atmosphere in the company is anything but corporate, which is great if you want a work environment that isn't rigid and stuffy.
For the most part, if you fit with the culture here, it's a great place to work in creative. Usually each creative team is assigned a few accounts, which helps to prevent burn-out of ideas. CP+B uses a unique process for concepts and creative development that acts as quality control, and helps set a high standard. I was a fan of the method. Attitudes vary from account to account but for the most part, creative management are all very motivated to put out good work that satisfies the agency's agenda, as well as the client's. The agency has a great number of resources, and the studio department was especially impressive.
The facilities are great, and are dog-friendly. The kitchen is always stocked with free food and ends up helping cut costs from your grocery budget.Cons
The agency culture is a bit of a frat-house mentality - if you don't like the taste of the kool-aid, you can take a hike. Company-wide emails addressing dissenting reviews about beer cart Thursdays on Agency Spy came off as odd and insecure.
The culture is changing from what it used to be, but CP+B Boulder is still reminiscent of a sweat shop. The atmosphere is laid back, but employees work long hours, and the facilities are conducive to practically living at the agency.
The right hand doesn't seem to know what the left is doing all the time. While I worked in Boulder, there were 3 project managers to one creative team, and they rarely had any idea what the other was demanding and in what timeframe. I was often reminding them to check with the other people in project mgmt before assigning me work.Advice to ManagementAdvice
Be more open-minded when it comes to what keeps your employees happy: Some people enjoy company keggers, but other simply enjoy having a life outside the workplace.RecommendsPositive OutlookNo opinion of CEO
