I worked at BVK

Pros

Good people and benefits. big accounts do come along, always looking for new clients, people generally very nice and a good balance between work and life most of the time.

Cons

Sometimes you can get stuck in a rut doing the same things over and over again. You pretty much have to leave to get a salary bump, and if you've been placed with a client, it is very hard to branch out beyond it.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Create more of an internal process instead of 100 different ways to do things. Have a more transparent raise/salary structure.

    Pros

    Family atmosphere. Great, smart people who really care about the work they do. I haven't worked at many places, but their creative staff is by far the best in the city. Bar none. Their support of non-profits through Serve is commendable. Agency's Creative Department head, Gary Mueller, does an amazing job of taking care of people and giving back to the community. He's the only manager there that won't B.S. you. He helped me when my own boss and other acct management were unavailable.

    Cons

    Their account side leadership is non-existent. The managing partner who is supposed to be in charge of account side knows nothing about advertising. Spends all his time using the company credit card buying cool technology for himself instead of managing the business or staff. No appreciation or understanding by company owner of how much staffing is needed. He lives in Florida 6 months out of the year to avoid paying taxes in Wisconsin. That says it all. Too bad, because there is so much good about this place.

    Pros

    Fun people, trendy workplace design, flexible hours, minimal dress code, decent health and dental benefits, great parking, and good location.

    Cons

    No room for growth or change. A worker can get locked into a client or job where there is no room for change or growth. Bonus is a disappointment and there is no review process to improve your pay scale.
