Former Employee - I Was In Creative in Kansas City, MO
Former Employee - I Was In Creative in Kansas City, MO
Disapproves of CEO

Pros

great people. the opportunity to do great work.

Cons

boys club. bad management. no feedback on job performance. no opportunity to grow. very little forgiveness for minor mistakes in staff - but huge forgiveness for HUGE mistakes in senior management. most of the great creative projects are given to a hand-picked group of people.

Advice to Management

be careful what you ask for. if you bring in new york management to try to make it a new york-ish agency, don't act like you're upset when you let half your staff go.

    Former Employee - Anonymous Employee in Kansas City, MO
    Former Employee - Anonymous Employee in Kansas City, MO
    Disapproves of CEO

    Pros

    A wonderful place to work. Excited and passionate staff. Passion to do great things and make its mark on the advertising/marketing industry.

    Cons

    Leadership is inadequate and inexperienced. The top level is an old boys club who make decisions on the course and then pay lip service to the staff and any new ideas that bubble up.

    Advice to Management

    Understand what you are. Don't act like you are a NYC/Chicago shop. Draw a circle on the map and own that territory. Start with KC. Then put up a wall from Denver to StL, Minnapolis to Mexico.
