A good place to work but somewhat cliquish.

Pros

The pay is pretty good and they do really creative work.

You sort of need to know the right people and the pay could be better.

Advice to Management

Don't forget the little guy.

    Pros

    Ability to pretty much do anything and everything, so you can technically build your own career path - really great for Jrs to start building their advertising career
    Mostly great people that want to do good by the agency and by their clients
    Pretty good work/life balance compared to other agencies
    Building is cool, they are trying to make it more "hip" and have a keg
    Open door policy
    Independently owned
    Location in Santa Ana is pretty nice

    Cons

    Really negative agency politics, so be careful with who you align yourself with and what you say to others
    Senior leaders are behind in how to keep up with the changing culture and marketplace (digital/social)
    Pay is pretty terrible, don't expect anything above bare minimum if you're not coming in at a senior level
    Low amount of holidays and early Friday's are a joke because they rarely happen
    Little to no training, mentorship is also hard to come by in certain departments, sink or swim mentality

    Advice to Management

    If you're going to talk the talk, you gotta walk the walk (shared values).

    Pros

    • Great working environment, small enough to know everyone and get a feel for all aspects of a full-service agency.
    • Down-to-earth coworkers
    • Many opportunities to gain experience that you might not get in a bigger agency.

    Cons

    • Can feel unorganized at times
    • Overly bureaucratic when it comes to change in procedures
