I have been working at Questus full-time (more than a year)Pros
Working in advertising for the past 12 years, I have done my time at some notable agencies (Arnold in Boston, Goodby in San Francisco and Butler, Shine, Stern in Sausalito) all great agencies where I learned so much and grew my experience in the ad world. I am proud to have worked at all three of those agencies, but I am most proud of my time at Questus thus far. I came to Questus unsure if I could pull off directing an entire department and I am proud to say that after two years at Questus that I have pulled it off successfully. I love my job and I love the people I work with.
When I came to Questus, I took it as an opportunity to erase all the negative things I experienced during my advertising journey:
-- Work Life Balance: Questus is the only place I have ever worked at in advertising that allowed me to have a healthy work life balance. At the end of the day, what's more important - working 48 hours straight to get that TV spot JUST right for the CEO or going home at a reasonable time to cook dinner with my family and enjoy my night? I can proudly say that Questus is the first job in advertising where I could have a career and a life and succeed at both. This is a very rare thing to accomplish in the ad world.
-- Respect: The Project Management Department is truly the redheaded stepchild in the agency world. We are treated like second-class advertising citizens, we are told to shut our mouths in meetings and to be quiet and not have an opinion on creative work -- the list goes on. Questus is the first place in advertising where I truly am respected for my thoughts, my ideas and my vision. I have a voice at Questus. People value my opinions and ideas and it has given me the confidence to really contribute to the agency life at Questus.
-- Hierarchy: Many of us have worked at agencies where the leaders of the agency are pretty untouchable to many people. I used to think of it like Dorothy trying to reach the Wizard of Oz -- you never know what to expect or how you will be treated by this untouchable force. It's quite ridiculous if you think about it - we are all human, we are all in this together and we should all work together regardless of titles or positions. That's how it is at Questus. Nobody is unapproachable. Nobody discredits you for being the low man on the totem pole or speaking your mind. Everyone is treated with respect and remembers your name. You work WITH the founders and leaders of the company. I dare you to find that at a large agency. You won't.
-- Culture: Truly amazing people here at Questus. Its very close-knit and family oriented staff that I enjoy working and laughing with. Everyone respects everyone.
Don't get me wrong, Questus is not perfect and there is always room to grow, to improve and be better -- but I am a part of making that happen. I look forward to many more years at Questus!Cons
