Pros

Because it's a large agency there is a lot of variety--you have the chance to work on many different accounts, learn different skill sets, work with a lot of different people. They support talent. If you're curious and talented and hard-working, have a positive attitude and a good work ethic you can have a long and strong career here

Cons

Because it is so large you may not feel as connected to or known and supported by top management as you would at a smaller agency

    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.
