    Pros

    Amazing opportunity to learn how an agency works and meet people in different departments. The people were awesome!

    Cons

    Amazing opportunity to learn how an agency works

    Advice to Management

    Be a little more open to hearing ideas from younger employees. It's understandable that change takes a long time to happen in a big agency, but dismissing ideas for improvement because of their origin is irresponsible.

    Pros

    Great work environment. Strategic and collaborative team. Autonomy to do my job, but help when I need it. Opportunity to work across a number of accounts. Good, smart people.

    Cons

    I'd like more time to do the work that I do. Staff is lean. Assignments are challenging at times -- although I don't mind a challenge.

    Advice to Management

    Never forget what it's like to be in the trenches. Recognize work that's done at all levels and all groups. There's been a lot of change. We support you and believe in our future.

    Pros

    LCE has great, smart, hard-working people who really care about the place, the clients and each other. Our recent merger with Lowe is bringing more opportunities to become a truly national and global agency rather than focused just in Detroit.

    Cons

    No company is perfect and our ability to weather the storms of GM is proof that while difficult, we have some good things going for us. Dealing with 100 years of history is a blessing and a curse.

    Advice to Management

    Hire some new creatives.
