    I have been working at ALMA DDB full-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    Everyone is very nice and pay is good if negotiated correctly at hiring.

    Cons

    It is difficult to move around unless you are chummy with the right people. I like to rely solely on my skills and work ethic and I am not good at aligning myself with anyone to get ahead.

    Former Employee - Art Director in Miami, FL
    Former Employee - Art Director in Miami, FL

    I worked at ALMA DDB full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    - Good accounts.
    - Overall, good environment.
    - Good benefits with lots of free days.
    - Offices are located in a beautiful area (Coconut Grove).
    - Miami.
    - One of the few Hispanic agencies that are pushing for award winning creativity.
    - Leo Peet.
    - Good trainings and workshops.

    Cons

    - Slow. The simplest things can take so much time.
    - Even though there's a great environment, there's also a lot of gossip.
    - You have to watch your back. Especially from people that have a long time working there.
    - Pay could be way better.
    - Politics ... but that's not exclusive to this agency.
    - "Elbow your way in" culture for growth. If not, you'll work for years and years without a promotion.
    - Everybody is senior in this agency.
    - Same as usual: leadership not always the great mentors you'll expect from an agency of this caliber.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    No advice really. I wouldn't know how to handle what I'd change in this agency.

    Former Intern - Anonymous Intern in Miami, FL
    Former Intern - Anonymous Intern in Miami, FL

    I worked at ALMA DDB as an intern (less than a year)

    Pros

    People are friendly, a lot of smart people, does not feel like a sweatshop, unlike other agencies. The company takes care of its employees. Most interns were given great projects and learned a lot, but some would just hang around the office with little to do. My experience was very positive partly because I had a great mentor. I'd recommend interns to set clear deliverables or goals at the beginning of the semester with supervisor at beginning of internship.

    Cons

    They are expanding (which is great), but that also means that they're having space issues.

    Pros

    Incredible work environment amongst your peers. You will be spending plenty of time with them so it's good to know that there are good people there. The offices are spacious and beautiful in one of the best parts of Miami, Coconut Grove.

    Cons

    It's been a while since I have been there but they do blast the A/C constantly and sometimes it's hard to get a quiet space to work with an open office with barely any rooms.

    Work with great people. All of them are extremely capable, very intelligent. The place has a really cool atmosphere and the management team and people make it a very inspiring place to be. You can unleash your creative freedom.
