Decent people, culture of "talented and nice". Some talented shiny pennies in the mix
Bernbach creative equity - just been resting on them for too long
New NY CEO Chris Brown - could do the trick but time will tell
Not that bad or any worse than the majority of agencies out there who aren't having a glory moment. It's a tough business, period.
Disconnected executive management. Where's the passion for communications guys?
Too much dead wood; the "nice" part has resulted in apathy and medicraty.
Lack of new business wins has been a bummer
Lack of best in class digital/social expertise
No CCO right now and not a lot of creative passion
Limited career trajectory and mentoring; need better rotation programs, training and development
Someone please fix the rug!
