    Best Asian agency in the country

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee) Englewood Cliffs, NJ

    ProsCouldn't ask for better clients! Beautiful office. Visa sponsorship. The owner is a true entrepreneur who has brought rapid growth to the agency over the years. Everyone is generally nice and friendly. Some very smart and professional people. The agency is trying everything they can to turn digital - a precious effort in the Asian agency business.

    ConsBase salary is not competitive at all. Horrible work life balance for many people. Some lazy and dumb managers. Very stict with vacations or personal days off.

    Advice to Senior ManagementTalk to junior staff more. There are talented people who work really hard but are paid pathetically. Think of some incentives to show you actually trust your employees and for people to be even more motivated, like, more flexibility with time off, sick leaves, early leaves etc.

    Incompetent and lazy mid managements

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee) Englewood Cliffs, NJ

    ProsBig, roomy office with plenty of parking space. Great clients. Nice and friendly people.

    ConsMid managements are incompetent with poor judgements, poor professional skills but high pride, which created very low glass ceilings with absolutely no room or opportunities to grow.

    No mentor program, and no learning or stepping up opportunities for junior staffs.

    Mid managements are the major discouragement for team morale, they focus solely on senseless hierarchy, power play, and pleasing the boss instead of doing their jobs right. Which leads to team members would often found feeling lost, lack of enthusiasm, eventually end up either give up trying or just leaving the company.

    Advice to Senior ManagementGet rid of the incompetent and lazy mid managements already, they are the main reason your good staffs left the company one after another! Let people with the real skills, experience and talents to lead.

    Start treating the talented ones better, they are your assets, you should invest in them or they would just leave and help your competitors.

    Try to talk to your junior staffs more to learn about the real current situation, not the altered stories that the mid level tell you.

    Sweatshop with no trust

    Art Director (Current Employee) Englewood Cliffs, NJ

    ProsNice office, visa sponsorship. That's all the good they give. I don't know what else to say about this company.

    ConsLeadership team fight with each other, backstabbing is common. There's no trust to the juniors. They use visa sponsorship as an excuse for low pay and extra work hours. There's no creativity in the work. Hierarchy rules here, you can't say no to leaders. Hell on earth to work. The boss "Kevin" is the only one that matters to everyone.

    Advice to Senior ManagementYou really could have make the agency fun as other. But they chose to make it boring as hell, tiring like a sweatshop.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Good people, not so good for career.

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

    ProsDon't need to compete to others. Not much stress for works. Union square location.

    ConsThey are targeting only for 1st generation asian american market. Meaning there's very limited pool of audience and not much room for both marketing strategy and creative. People are good but the company atmosphere is very strict and tied-up. Hard to feel passion as a creative agency in this company.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

     

    Pros – Team I worked with was supportive. People are all around nice people to work with.
