Politics, paranoia and personal pets are the order of the day.

Vice President (Former Employee)

I worked at C-K full-time for more than 10 years

ProsCompetitive pay, good benefits, financially stable.C-K is a reputable shop doing workmanlike work for mid-level clients. If the culture is a good fit for you, it can be a great place to gain experience and build your career.

ConsQuestionable leadership. As a result of heavy turnover at the top and ongoing power struggles between executive staff, it isn't the agency it used to be. If you're looking for an agency that values ideas and open, honest communication, this may not be the place for you.

Advice to Senior ManagementCheck the egos at the door when making decisions that will determine the future of the company.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
