    I have been working at Sparkpr full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Mid-level staff has a lot of freedom to run accounts
    Most MDs enjoy mentoring junior staff
    Agency has some of the best media relationships around

    Cons

    Pay is below compared to other firms
    Not enough junior staff to support accounts (staff with at least a year to tow years experience) but it's getting better

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Better pay for high performing employees
    Need to improve east coast and west coast relations
    Do not lose the Spark spirit
