    I worked at JWT full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    The office is beautiful. The compensation was appropriate. There is a bar in the office where workers could gather and socialize a bit. I felt very welcomed by my team when I first started. There was some light travel to the Dallas office.

    Cons

    There were situations where managers bullied and played favorites with who they gave/didn't give work to. No compassion for employees dealing with health issues (some life-threatening). There was an instance where the manager wanted to fire an employee, but couldn't, so he said he would "make their life hell" until they quit. Generally, I felt like a pawn in a game played by management surrounded by lots of closed door conversations and whispering. This office is full of office politics and gossiping, so much so that it severely impacted my ability to focus on work and I left with meager additions to my portfolio. Be expected to respond to work requests night and day (and weekends). Also, there is the typical corporate agency image trying to be conveyed that everything is about making daring, fresh, creative work, but that was rarely the case. Sadly, the amount of remarkable, original, inspired work I saw was zero.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Please replace the Experience Team management with those who place emphasis and importance on quality work and who do not approach a situation with only the perspective of what they, personally, can "get out of it". Also, having managers who don't take multiple vacations a month and who are actually present would help employees a lot.
