Pros

Some of the people are great, and passionate about what they do. There's a great opportunity to learn if you work with the right people. I love that 95% of people don't get wrapped up in their titles. You can propose ideas to anyone.

Cons

When senior management makes mistakes, there's little accountability. Sometimes there is a rush to get work finished as opposed to getting it right. Sometimes there is a great deal of disorganization. Morale is kind of low after a lot of client losses last year.

Advice to Management

Trust your people more often. Don't shut their ideas out.

    For creatives, you'll learn digital, but it's not a creative environment

    Pros

    Creatives can pick up a lot of digital skills that good for the resume. They have well known clients with okay to great budgets. Offices are convenient and benefits were quite good (I was there in 2010). Employees are a diverse pool, including very talented, smart and nice people.

    Cons

    You will get roped into working on direct mail, plus a lot of their "digital" is direct marketing. Political fiefdoms abound headed by longtime people holding on by tooth and nail. They don't know how to deal with creativity--the place is for bean counters, not creatives.

    Advice to Management

    Make the place more creative friendly. It's hard, but cut down on the politics.
