    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.

    Pros

    Global agency with a deep history and known for some of the country's most famous campaigns. Ability to grow and participate at many levels - hard work and tenacity do pay off - if you want the advancement, the opportunity will be provided.

    Cons

    Still relatively Detroit-centric but with the Lowe global network, slowly elevating the strengths of all of the domestic offices equally.

    Advice to Management

    Hard work, tenacity and track records are equally as important as new, fresh talent. As an agency with a history and a legacy for great work that was developed by a generation of very talented people, appreciate those who built that foundation and have the proven track record on the same grounds as those who have the promise to continue that legacy. The combination of the two is powerful to take the agency to the next level but don't swap one for the other.

  10. Great shop. Great people. Changing for the better.

    Pros

    The people that work at the agency are great: hard working, smart, normal. The changes that are happening are encouraging. Plus, the opportunity to work on some global business.

    Cons

    Lost a few accounts recently. Had to see some good people leave as a result. Morale took a bit of a hit too.

    Advice to Management

    Keep pushing for change. Embrace new ways of doing things. Listen to employees at any level. A lot of employees want to help, they just aren't sure how to right now.
