    Pros

    Good agency parties, they care about agency culture and what people outside the agency think of them.

    Cons

    High drama. Don't pay well and always have an excuse on why there is no room for growth. The people who make all the major decisions are all old school.

    Advice to Management

    Good people are going to continue to look elsewhere if you don't learn to pay them and respect them.

    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.

    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 Management

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

    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.
