    Pros

    Great benefits. Lots of PTO and other perks that most don't have.

    Cons

    A lot of micro-managing and measuring company success on a quarterly basis.

    Advice to Management

    Stop putting so much emphasis on quarterly results.

  2. Relatively easy job, but work is best summed up as rote.

    Pros

    Reasonable vacation, extremely low stress, nice office, the people can be nice, digital media as well as measurement is still growing as print contracts.

    Cons

    Boring, product phenomenally doesn't feel real, exceedingly repetitive, murderously long PowerPoints for deliverables

    Advice to Management

    Integrate more cookie level analytics and online behavioral data, consider pivoting to include attribution. Figure out better mobile solutions, include basic, but more sophisticated numerical methods than simple t tests.

  3. Emotive management + Bad Training program = Nightmare to work

    Pros

    It appears as though anyone they will accept anyone they like (as in socially, not professionally) who they interview with off the street--Prior experience doesn't matter.

    Cons

    -Incredibly unprofessional management. One of their operations directors worked at a supermarket before running a major division...
    -Management appears to have this zen philosophy about training: they will not tell you what you aren't picking up until it is too late--then slowly alienate you until they feel like firing you.

    Advice to Management

    When someone has umpteen references claiming they are the smartest individual they have ever met and you cannot seem to train that person... It's obviously you. Use some of that "dynamic" logic and train people the way you were trained. Don't take your frustrations out on a recent grad who is trying his best to take conflicting, mutually exclusive directions from three incompetent (associate) directors & a VP who clearly takes orders from his subordinate.

    Your office is like a run-down circus. Get your house in order. PHP isn't as secure as Java...

    Pros

    Fun and young culture, lots of ownership of accounts and clients for young people to take on, cutting edge of digital advertising research

    Cons

    Really poor management, uninspiring leaders who are all driven by sales quotas and revenue targets, inexperienced managers, and lack of career growth

    Advice to Management

    Get a new CEO and get rid of all the incumbent leadership from the pre-Millward Brown days. This company needs a fresh start

    Pros

    The career path does have potential.

    Cons

    Dynamic Logic (DL) was a great place to work five years ago, before Millward Brown purchased them and stripped them of all corporate identity and personality. The company once held high regards for their employees but since this purchase regards them as cogs that keep the machine going.

    Advice to Management

    Management tends to put the needs of themselves before their employees.

    Pros

    Great benefits, management actively tries to help you succeed, company has a great reputation in display advertising effectiveness research

    Advice to Management

    Instead of saying you promote from within, actually do instead of driving away talent
