    I worked at Campbell Ewald full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Retooled and reinvigorated and ready to go forward. Great collection of professionals who really go the extra mile to define teamwork.

    Cons

    Only opportunities exist for those who are hungry --- no cons. Management is in place to reinvigorate and revitalize.

    Advice to Management

    New business development is key to future success and Management is all over it.

    Pros

    Not a single thing is good about this place. It is the worst agency in Detroit, and that's saying something. The worst career move you could make would be going to CE.

    Cons

    As they say about culture, it starts at the top and goes downhill from there. In CE's case that is both literal and figurative. Management for the most part consists of two guys who belong in a hockey team locker room than running an agency. One of them is a hopeless party boy who only keeps his job because certain female clients like his looks. The other is a former waiter/maitre d and stil acts like it.

    Advice to Management

    Fire yourselves and give back all of the money you rewarded yourselves for running a decent agency into the ground.

    Pros

    Awesome atmosphere. Great coworkers. A lot of perks.

    Cons

    Very long hours. Pay was already low but with the over 50+ hour week and no overtime, it got worse. Very top heavy company and not easy to move around position-wise.

    Pros

    The culture at Lowe Campbell Ewald is great. It's a beautiful space and the people are awesome to work with for the most part.

    Cons

    The office can sometimes still have bureaucracy problems, and there is a lot of office politics for a 'progressive' agency.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to your employees and their feedback. Helping them grow only helps the company grow.
