Pros

GS&P has enough clout, tenacity and talent to pull off some cool campaigns. But those camps are rare and with the rapid growth at GSP you're more than likely not going to be working on the cool stuff.

The name still carries plenty of weight in the industry and it does attract smart, talented people. Get it, get it on the resume and bail use it (quickly) to move on to healthier and more vital company.

Cons

The senior management has no idea how to scale the success of GSP. What was once a prestige boutique is now a troubled teen struggling (with all the tantrums and drama that implies) with becoming a seasoned adult.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Quit. Please. Too chiefs with no clue how to do anything short of an over expensive :30.

    Pros

    Great brands, hard workers, excellent benefits and some of the smartest people in the business. This is a great place to work on high profile creative projects and work with great people.

    Cons

    With growth the culture is evolving and there is high turnover. Work/life/balance can suffer at times but that's life at any ad agency. Senior partners can be disconnected from the day to day.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Account management is too flat and there needs to be more opportunity for growth. It's an agency built on great creative but recognition for other departments in the agency falls through the cracks.
