    I worked at Blast Radius full-time

    Pros

    Some very talented people, big name brands and great work. Lots of desire to be better, sales machine that was good at winning work.

    Cons

    Delivery often left to junior staff without enough senior oversight. Very big gaps in the management team for Creative and Project Management. Too much focus on making money and not enough on the quality of the work. Project managers often not empowered or skilled to do their job yet blamed for everything that went wrong.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Connect with the teams more and be accountable to more than just the money.

    Pros

    -A revolving door of returning Blastees...speaks to a strong culture IMO
    -Like any job, it is what you make of it. If you have the passion to work on world class brands with super-smart colleagues who all want to perfect their craft then you generally do well at Blast
    -The sabbatical can't be beat. One paid month (on top of regular vacation) every 3 years to do/go anything you want.

    Cons

    The hours can be brutal. Most folks have a skewed work/life balance.
    Some offices are limited in the number of accounts available so work can be repetitive at times.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stay true to what will make you unique in the industry. Buckshot strategies hedge risk but prevent you from placing big bets on the future
