    I worked at Element 79 Partners

    Pros

    It never occurred to any of us that there wasn't anything we couldn't do, together. And then it all began to fall apart, little by little. The one thing that never changed, was the feeling of together, always extendingto those who weren't there anymore. A unique and very special time in my career

    Cons

    Gone too soon. It isn't any one person's singular fault. Though, I will always hate Pepsi. Seriously, what a shame.

  2.  

    Was the most unhealthy place to work

    I have been working at Element 79 Partners full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Accounts were both incredibly good and incredibly bad to work on. You had to be on the right ones. The paid exceptionally.

    Cons

    The company judged you by how many hours you billed, not by the work. Especially when Ryan left. A half dozen people had serious health problems due in part to the work related stress there. Brian valued 'loyalty to him' over the work or the job for the clients.

    Pros

    - Excellent compensation
    - Knowledgeable people
    - Casual work environment
    - Great spacious offices

    A great place to work overall

    Cons

    Their digital work is lacking. They're a print/old school agency trying to be new school and missing the mark ever so slightly.

    Pros

    best people I have ever met. Dow to earth, smart, helpful and 100% genuine. Couldn't ask for more.

    Cons

    smaller agency that still needs to catch onto digital but in the large scheme of things the cons are slim to none.

    I worked at Element 79 Partners

    Pros

    everyone is super nice and supportive. i learned a ton and made some great friends. very creative when they had their good clients

    Cons

    i thought it was unfair they lost their core founding clients. i was actually hoping to be fulltime, but with the recession and losses on their client roster, i was out of there. still some favoritism/nepotism, but that's the nature of the biz.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    need to push the envelope and be on par with with wiedens and crispins out there.
