    Current Employee - Senior Account Executive  in  Chicago, IL
    Current Employee - Senior Account Executive in Chicago, IL

    I have been working at C-K full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    The pros for this company are far less than the cons for this company. Some of the pros about working for C-K: great location, nice views, friendly co-workers, great social events, cappuccino machine, and I can ride my bike to work.

    Cons

    The cons for this company far outweigh the pros. Some of the cons for C-K are: Absolutely no work-life balance--not even in times of emergency, managers lack of expertise in the field of advertising and marketing, company expects you to work 60-80 hours a week with no additional compensation, disconnected senior management who care more about the bottom line ($$$) than they do about the people who make this company.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Take a long hard look at the talented people that work at C-K. Most likely a majority will leave in the next 12 months unless you make changes.

    Pros

    Great people, smart people, good clients as well.

    Cons

    Terrible management, long hours - seemed no one cared about putting WAY too much on your plate, and the clients suffered.
