Pros

They have managed to attract some great talent. Employees are super fun and everyone hangs out pretty often which is great.

Cons

The downside is that they lost some fantastic creative leadership and they haven't managed to replace them. The current management is far removed from the actual creation of the work and seem to do more arguing and yelling than actual work. Credit is not given and good talent often gets over looked since the management generally don't have formal backgrounds in the core disciplines that make up the digital agency (visual, ux, tech). It's genuinely one of the most disappointing jobs I've ever taken and I can say it is 99% caused by poor leadership.

Advice to Management

Learn to be humble, listen more, hirer more management that actually get their hands dirty. Also, soliciting good reviews on glass door is very obvious.

    Pros

    Amazing talent, ideas, and production quality. You'll do good work here and learn a lot very quickly. You'll work with big clients and be in an environment that favors design.

    Cons

    Minimum pay, long/wasted hours, and high employee churn. Though you'll do good work here, you'll only do it until you inevitably burnout. Peers around you leave at various stages, due to burnout, and forcing you to be on a team of new employees for every new project.

    Advice to Management

    Pay employees more. The long hours would feel more justified.

    Pros

    Casual office and good location. Occasionally cool work, mainly publishing so not that much variety of industries.

    Cons

    Repeating whats already been said, management is arrogant, childish, and they dont know how to lead a company. Long hours and weak culture. Not many opportunities for growth and high turnover.

    Advice to Management

    Dont just be all talk. Hire people who know what they're doing and invest in keeping people around for more than 6 months.
