    I have been working at Devon Group part-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    TDG offers employees the opportunity to do great work in a professional environment.

    Cons

    Often times, there aren't enough hours in the day. Perhaps that's a pro, since it points to a very busy agency.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I worked at Devon Group full-time

    Pros

    Access to good clients; good learning opportunity, including how to manage conflict under pressure; pay was average

    Cons

    The bad far outweighed the good. The working environment was terrible and the company leadership often degraded employees and shamed them. Employees were often upset by how they were treated on a daily basis. Because it's an individually owned small company, leadership is personally invested in it's success and employees suffer wrath if anything doesn't go exactly as planned.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Create a positive working environment for your employees

    I have been working at Devon Group full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Work with an excellent team of highly capable colleagues, generous compensation and bonuses, many learning opportunities and leadership support, reasonable work/life boundaries for the PR industry and agency life. Get to work with a lot of interesting members of the press and analyst communities, and compelling subject matter experts.

    Cons

    For me - no Thai food take out in the area.

    Interesting work. CEO takes good care of her people. Quarterly bonuses.
