    Pros

    Good pay, good clients, and a well-repsected agency within the ad community. Lots of great ads coming out of that place.

    Cons

    Long hours, disorder, lack of structure, poor sense of community, crowded. People seemed stressed and all the projects I was on had a chicken-with-head cut off order to them, bad deadlines. The building is packed with people because it has grown so large and most people don't seem to know each other that well.

    While there are a lot of big name clients, there are also a ton of shitty projects getting assigned–the kind of work that doesn't get showcased anywhere but is just part of getting paid.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Seriously consider whether growing so big is the best thing for the culture of the place. Rather than create a crappy atmosphere with a churn and burn mentality, try to foster a place where creatives feel like they have an interest in the place and projects and each other.
