    Pros

    People really have fun working together. In general you play as hard as you work. The office environment is super casual and great work is well rewarded. Booze in the office, lunch trunk visits and summer concert events keep things light. During my time, there was a great office culture with a parody Daily Show created by employees which really helped fuel the company spirit. Holiday party is always off-the-hook.

    Cons

    Not exactly the most attractive of client lists and the creative department gets away with murder with their laziness because they are the Kings and Queens of the agency. Office politics is a mess like any other company but the egomaniac creatives definitely make it worse. One of the "pros" mentioned regarding a Daily Show was actually not 100% approved by the partners so boo on them for not recognizing the huge amount of office culture it injected to the company.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Holding creative in higher regard does not breed a strong team ethic. One, it takes every department to succeed and two, it makes your creative teams lazy.
