    Pros

    Friendly people.

    Good location.

    Might open doors for other opportunities.

    Cons

    Crappy environment for creativity to flourish. New cubes are more like shoulders on the side of the road than offices. Shows how little employees are valued. Factory environment.

    Work is getting dumber and dumber.

    Relentless demands and no push back from account staff. Burn out all over but nobody cares.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Emperor's New Clothes syndrome. Self impressed upper management. Poorly managed and out of touch with employees, not remotely willing to take a stand for creative ideas or staff. Sometimes have a threatening tone when asking creatives to come up with better work ( always a motivator). Don't seem to understand they need to be clearing a path for good creative and making account staff more accountable and developing a backbone relative to clients. Advertising used to be fun. Now is completely mind numbing.

    I worked at Arc Worldwide

    Pros

    Happy hour on Friday in 2005. Don't know how or if that ever changed.

    Cons

    I was hired with a packaging portfolio and never permitted to work on packaging. Frustrating for all.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Do a better job in the interview process and hire for the job.

    Doesn't Recommend
