A good place to start out. Don't expect long term career growth unless you are in with the right people.

Creative (Former Employee)
Chicago, IL

ProsThere are some smart, fun people. Like other agencies, the culture is a lax jeans and t-shirts kind of place with beer in the fridge. Random fun office events like Bacon Fest will happen. These things make the cons tolerable for the short term.

ConsWeak client roster. A willingness to bend over backwards on projects with little to no reward. Poor communication with employees regarding vision and expectations as a company. If you cannot fend for yourself and stand up for what you want, you may as well be invisible.

Advice to Senior ManagementTransparency to some degree would be nice. Provide clear career paths and opportunities. The fun stuff is nice, but in the end people want to feel rewarded and respected.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
