I worked at Element 79 Partners

Pros

everyone is super nice and supportive. i learned a ton and made some great friends. very creative when they had their good clients

Cons

i thought it was unfair they lost their core founding clients. i was actually hoping to be fulltime, but with the recession and losses on their client roster, i was out of there. still some favoritism/nepotism, but that's the nature of the biz.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

need to push the envelope and be on par with with wiedens and crispins out there.

    I worked at Element 79 Partners

    Pros

    It never occurred to any of us that there wasn't anything we couldn't do, together. And then it all began to fall apart, little by little. The one thing that never changed, was the feeling of together, always extendingto those who weren't there anymore. A unique and very special time in my career

    Cons

    Gone too soon. It isn't any one person's singular fault. Though, I will always hate Pepsi. Seriously, what a shame.

    Was the most unhealthy place to work

    I have been working at Element 79 Partners full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Accounts were both incredibly good and incredibly bad to work on. You had to be on the right ones. The paid exceptionally.

    Cons

    The company judged you by how many hours you billed, not by the work. Especially when Ryan left. A half dozen people had serious health problems due in part to the work related stress there. Brian valued 'loyalty to him' over the work or the job for the clients.
