    You have to make the experience what you want it. You can either stay within your own team and not participate with the rest of the agency or get out there, be social and really enjoy all things C-K has to offer.


    For some, work-life balance is a challenge. Some accounts could be boring.

    Advice to Management

    Look at everyone you have at your agency - their backgrounds, their experience, their goals - not just what job they currently have. You lose people that could have been great advocates for your agency.

    I applied through an employee referral – interviewed at C-K.


    It was an informational interview. I contacted an HR rep through LinkedIn and they passed me along to the Chicago office. There were no current opening but they did call me for an information interview and said they'd keep my on file.
