    Pros

    Good group of people. Passionate about doing a great job. Not a lot of internal conflicts. Nice culture in general.

    Cons

    Staff reductions from account losses have taken a toll. More stress recently to cover for people leaving who aren't getting replaced.

    Advice to Management

    Hire developers. Update the website. More art directors who understand the web. Embrace a small agency mentality.

    Pros

    Awesome co-workers that becomes friends. Flexible work hours and a great work life balance, you can also bring your dog to work. The occasional beer party and IHOP fridays once a month.

    Cons

    Little to no opportunities for growth. Performance reviews were rarely on-time or even given for that matter. The closer you are with certain people (cliques) the better your opportunity to grow becomes. It seemed that if you wanted to get a promotion you were better off leaving to a new agency.

    Advice to Management

    You have to trust the little guys and let them swim with the big fish.

    Pros

    Good people, and good work/life balance. Professional development opportunities are not often but they do try to be accommodating and fulfill training requests.

    Cons

    Limited opportunities for growth. Teams are like cliques and don't include other teams early enough in processes which tends to cause issues later on.

    Advice to Management

    Management should look to really understand team member backgrounds and not just what their position is. People can have more than one area of expertise.

    Pros

    Easy hours, fun brands. It was a really fun place to work - people were awesome and bosses were cool. Good times, Good times.

    Cons

    Wasn't really any. It's not like you had to work late which is a plus however you're probably not going to do any award winning work either.

    Advice to Management

    Keep it up

    I worked at Dailey & Associates

    Pros

    Good place for a calmer agency experience than the cutthroat environment elsewhere. Nice people. Reasonable hours and work/life balance. Some big wins on new accounts.

    Cons

    Some long term employees have become relatively complacent and aren't always pushing the envelope. Mediocre work or client mandated bad decisions can slip into the mix.

    Advice to Management

    Could be more flat as an organization.

    Pros

    Good benefits as it is part of Interpublic Group. Good people working there trying to do their best under the circumstances.

    Cons

    West Hollywood (Pacific Design Center) location not convenient to anywhere (except maybe the Beverly Center if you can possibly get out for lunch). Agency is a shell of it's former self after numerous account losses and management changes.

    Advice to Management

    Your people are your biggest asset - in fact, they are your only asset. If you treat them fairly and with respect, you will get results back 10-fold.

    Pros

    Some of the people at Dailey are kind and hard-working people.

    Cons

    Dailey & Associates is incredibly cheap (and they have this reputation in the advertising community of Los Angeles). They do not give regular yearly raises or performance reviews and when they do, the raise is extremely small. If you have a problem with the how they handle reviews, specifically, if you wanted to go to HR about it, at Dailey, I wouldn't bother as there is only on person working in that department.

    Unlike other IPG companies or other Los Angeles agencies, they no longer have Summer Hours available (be ready to stay until at least 5:00PM every Friday in the summer). Also, they are open the week between Christmas and New Years Eve (unlike other agencies). These two changes came about when Bruce Miller was named CEO.

    Regardless of your position, be prepared to fork over roughly $80 a month of your salary to pay for the parking in the Pacific Design Center. Other IPG agencies in the Pacific Design Center pay for their employees to park there.

    The agency does not care about company morale at all. It is all about the bottom line. They don't care about whom they have to lay off as long as they make their numbers.

    Advice to Management

    The company needs new leadership across the board who are not set in their ways. The company is not modern, trendy, or heading in the right direction. As a result, it has not won any large business accounts and has lost several major clients.
