I worked at Moore & Scarry Advertising full-time (more than a year)Pros
Moore and Scarry (MS) provides a relaxed enviroment that is designed to allow one to "grow" into their position. They provide a fast-paced work enviroment, and if you want to advance within your postion, there is opportunity - limited, but available.
As a critique of the organization, a high level of work is asked of you, weekends lost, and your responsibilities outside of work suffer because of MS. This is continued below....Cons
There is a party-enviroment where you have to be accepted into the "club", or you are not. Lack of professional communication amongst most members of the management team to members in accounts services, creative and media buying. Upon hiring, there was no introduction to members of the managemnt team, or structure of the organization - that has since changed; implimented as of spring 2014. Time is short with training on software, account history, term's, etc.
As a critique of the organization, a high level of work is asked of you, weekends lost, and your responsibilities outside of work suffer because of MS. The Fort Myers managment team headed by Kerr are clueless on what is happening when they make rushed decisions; and if Caldwell is to ever appear in the Fort Myers office, don't expect him to know what's going on - one hand clearly doesn't know what the other is doing. Human Resources does little to nothing when issues arise - and issues do arrise.
Per client management, creative is sub-par and recycled from prior campaigns; new idea's are lacking on presentation; people here talk at clients, not to them; and active listening is a term not experienced. Above all, there is a level of swagger that resonates poorly in the halls of the Ft. Myers office. These are not only some of the reason's why there has been a lack of new business and for that matter the lack of Tier 2 business with this organization, but the general mentality of the organization as a whole.
The organization is not proactive in really any aspect of the management of business. There is no media planning for any client. Creative run's late because of everything has to be "rushed" since the teams all "forget" what the client wanted - until it's last minute. And when asked to stay late, it's not an "ask", but the leadership telling you that staying late is now part of your job, because their emergency has become your problem. Essentially, managements emergency becomes your problem.Advice to ManagementAdvice
The current principal owners need to realize that leadership means leading.... not leading everyone to the bar to drink, but leading a company of thinkers and innovators, movers and shakers. The next best thing here is not expanding into different area's of marketing, but building a team and facility that can grow into a Tier 2 marketing organization.Doesn't RecommendNeutral OutlookDisapproves of CEO
