Good starting point, but you'll find better over time.

Pros- Incredibly fun culture and the people are great. There are benefits to working hard with these guys.
- Potential to work on some really cool projects for brands people recognize.

Cons- Pay is great for people out of college and hungry. Those who've been around for a while can get paid better elsewhere.
- Losing swagger, partly due to client roster fading over the years and burned out employees.
- Home office doesn't know how to operate outside their geographical space, making expansion and sharing of great opportunities messy and poorly strategized.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company
