Pros

Great benefits, nice people, interesting work

Cons

Very much a corporate environment, which means you have to step around some people and play politics to get what you need.

Advice to Management

Less meetings, less reports, more on the ground work.

    Pros

    Excellent Benefits. Pay not comparable to freelance work, but benefits compensate. Highly inclusive environment, very creative, excellent management across the board.

    Cons

    When networks don't perform according to expectation, there's very little support or encouragement given - it's either silence, or simply layoffs. It's the nature of the business. Be prepared to work hard, but you need to remain creatively fresh or you're toast.
