    Pros

    Underneath the "laid back" vibe at RPA there are some very smart, very nice and very supportive people. This is not a traditional 9-5, clock in, clock out agency: It is all about getting the work done. To say they are an "integrated" agency doesn't do justice to the huge amount of TV advertising they do. And because their business model is one overall cost center (as opposed to a collection of profit centers), they are truly media neutral.

    Cons

    They are still overly dependent on Honda, but the non-automotive side of their business is growing (e.g. Farmers Insurance). While they have great creative talent there, the real power seems to reside with account managers.

    Advice to Management

    Keep on doing what you are doing, and keep the collaborative culture going. Your philosophy of "doing the right thing" is spot on.
