    Pros

    Exciting creative environment to work in. Creative Directors that want your best work and fight for it. Really nice people as well, and a really great part of the city to work in.

    Cons

    I truly cannot think of any cons, I suppose it would be working in New York City, one of the most expensive cities to work in the world. I suppose a con could be how expensive a cup of coffee is around the corner.

    Pros

    Working with very creative people on fun brands.

    Cons

    They are technically inept. The work/life balance requires your work to be your life.

    Advice to Management

    Put clear processes in place to avoid department conflicts and misunderstandings.

    Pros

    Great brand, good place to learn, ability to attract world-class talent. You are surrounded by smart people with lots of success in the industry, so it is good place to learn about the industry.

    Cons

    Not very structured for entry-level employees, so need to be self-sufficient/self-starter to advance.

    Pros

    You get to work and connect with some amazing people. Barn interns get full access and are even encouraged to interact with people at every level in the office.

    Cons

    The only downside I can think of is how sad it is when your internship is up and you don't get to go back every day anymore.

    Pros

    Occassional remote access, great team members, very dedicated people at VP and SVP level. Great support from managers when you need them.

    Cons

    Lack of cubicles, consultants are huddle in one room where the space is so limited that people are sitted extremely close to each other where their movement is curtailed. Employees do not really have to perform to stay on the payroll. Some really lazy employees

    Advice to Management

    Identify useless employees and let them go and retain good talents even if they are consultants.

    Pros

    Being an intern I got to get my hands on a lot of accounts and work on things outside of my concentration

    Cons

    I would have preferred not to work on assignments that were outside of my concentration. I wasn't really challenged, I felt like I could have worked on way more things.
