Be wary of this place

Creative (Former Employee)
Kansas City, MO

I worked at Barkley

Prosopportunity to work on television, light hours compared to other advertising shops, office activities such as office olympics, team can food drives, etc.

Consthe status quo is maintained here. everything about the idea process causes things to get watered down to a mediocre, at best, level of creative work. account people are afraid to challenge clients or push for innovative/ risk taking ideas to go through. the creative department is ruled by seniority, and those with junior and mid level experience resort to undermining tactics to get ahead. the agency says it wants change and better creative work, yet seems to treat the talent they bring in as black sheep and outsiders.

Advice to Senior Managementgive opportunities to those who are hungry and ask for them, and not just assign projects based on seniority or favoritism. get to know employees on a personal level. do not let those who resort to undermining tactics get ahead.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

Not at all what it seems.

Private (Former Employee)
Kansas City, MO

I worked at Barkley


Pros: It is a high profile advertising agency in Kansas City.… Cons: All is not as it seems. Most people not having fun with their work. A bit of a sweatshop. Some… Advice to Senior Management: If you have to tell people to look like they are having fun when there are cameras or clients around, it is not the fun… More
