    Pros

    Too few to list. Pay was OK, but not worth it.

    Cons

    Expectations are never communicated. CEO is a lunatic that yells at everyone. You're encouraged to bill as much as possible to the client (copies, messengers, etc). I was there for 6 months as a Sr. Account Exec. I saw a 35% client turnover in that time frame and about the same in employee turnover too. I have to believe all the great reviews here are written by the company and not real

    Advice to Management

    Grow Up
