Pros

Great work life balance
Good benefits
decent salaries
Open to new ideas

Cons

Owned by a huge staffing Corp. who knows nothing about agencies and cares nothing for the "art" of advertising and has little respect for creative.
One Trick Pony--80% of business from one client
HUGE turn-over. 31 people in 3 years. Most lay-offs.
All upper management has no experience outside of IDEA. They have created a Frankenstein agency by making up new standards, reinventing wheels, and not understanding advertising, marketing, or branding.
Creatives are all young know it all's who have minimal experience in other agencies. It's been called the "Lord of the Flies" department.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Bring in people with agency experience. Adopt standard agency operating processes. Get a consultant. Understand your competitors and what you're up against

    Pros

    the folks on the factory floor are great... the clients are great...

    Cons

    too much drama... constant gossip and senior management is the primary cause of most issues... no one is truly "the boss" because the company is owned by someone else... it's basically a free-for-all on most things... clients are the last thing management worries about

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    admit your shortcomings... learn to adapt... stop the drama
