    Pros

    Good 401k and vacation time. Some very talented people.

    Cons

    This was a good place to work with an innovative, fun and collaborative culture. There was a time where it was ok to take risks and learn from them. This has changed over the last couple of years where now the leadership only cares about and somewhat scared of its main client. Leaders talk the big talk that people come first, it's ok to say no to clients, but in practice, they walk on eggshells around them - which is sad to see.

    I do think the CEO means well but the leadership under her, the account leaders are ineffective. They have a select set of favorites on teams and only listen/ promote those people - who happen to be just like them. Lot of talk, self promotion with little to no impact and minimal leadership skills.

    Advice to Management

    Diversify. Be good counsellors to clients but also don't be afraid to say and do the right thing for your people first. I've seen too many people thrown under the bus by the leadership and good talent leave the agency.
