    Pros

    Accessible VP, SVP and C level managers who are fairly down to earth. The agency really focuses on fostering a sense of 'together-ness' through events like recess and community service day. External offices work well in concert with one another. Agency has a very strong sense of self and how it fits into the digital advertising world.

    Cons

    One can pick up some very bad habits here as there is no methodology instilled in staff. The left hand often isn't aware of what the right hand is doing though this is par for the course with agencies but here it is pronounced. Upper management are not particularly well skilled, i.e. don't have the awards not the exposure to high profile, high stress projects and have been at the agency for ages. As as result, upward mobility is truncated.

    Advice to Management

    Get rid of the army of VPs who often aren't managers nor have anyone to manage and work on adapting to having the best the brightest rise to the top rather than promote those that are clearly not ready to manage.


  2. Learn everything you possibly can, then move on.

    Pros

    You will be exposed to so many disciplines, working with big teams that no matter what your title is, you will learn something you didn't know before. Everyone here is smart, driven and talented. With internal talks, vendor presentations and company sponsored learning, the opportunities for professional development are fantastic. You will do high profile, big brand work across channels. You'll make great contacts and keep them for life. You'll have a social life--they just might be your team mates.

    Cons

    Because teams are so large, you're piece of the pie is limited. You can stretch if you ask, but you really have to push hard and be your own advocate. Politics are heavy here. It's easy to get overlooked so only the aggressive types move ahead. It's difficult to transfer to other accounts--even though they say it's possible, it's really easy to get stuck. "Siloed" is a term that floats around a lot.

    Advice to Management

    Listen. When disgruntledness happens on a team, it spreads like wildfire.
