    I worked at Deutsch full-time

    Pros

    Deutsch is making moves, and it's an exciting place to be. They just made a few great hires for the executive team, and it's starting to show. They are also great at promoting from within. The culture is very contagious, with constant energy and a feeling of unity and support.

    Cons

    Some of the seating and desk arrangements are not the most conducive to productivity. Also, thre's a lack of structured process, and I think time is wasted due to different employees following different methods without any consistency.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Spend a little time on laying out defined processes and make sure everyone is on the same page, even across disciplines.

    Pros

    Very entrepreneurial atmosphere; if you're willing to work hard your ideas can come to life and can impact the agency

    Cons

    Lot of upper managementent turnover as of late, so the direction of the agency is a little TBD

    I worked at Deutsch as a contractor (less than an year)

    Pros

    Nice production people. They are very rational and treat you with a respect.
    The entire team is very much engaged to do a good work.
    Good client list, good name, big office space.

    Cons

    People in creative team I worked with are very professional, but unfriendly and cocky. Not so welcoming to new workers. The place didn't seem to be ready for current technology - properly updated softwares, devices and pipeline of today's standard, yet this is only seen from from my own experience.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    It would be great to have some introductory guideline for new workers.

    Pros

    People are amazing. I absolutely love Deutsch. Deutsch's commitments to diversity and inclusion are imperative to the business. Deutsch believes that real collaboration among truly diverse participants yields the freshest and most innovative thinking.

    Cons

    work-life balance - there is practically none…at least for me right now. The company needs to slow down in their hiring process and make sure that someone who applies to a specific positions, such as a supervisor role, is qualified to be in that role - in addition to what comes with managing a team.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    compensation

    Pros

    Solid clients. Not as sexy as other agency client rosters, but solid. Good group of people and the egos are pretty in check compared to other creative shops.

    Cons

    The office is getting dated pretty fast and the amenities are terrible. They're in desperate need of perks for their staff. The AC unit is constantly breaking so you are always sweating your butt off. The offices can be pretty bad, but at least they're bad for everyone. You see ECDs making fat bank suffering along with everyone else.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get some amenities for your staff.
