    Pros

    Michael Hayes is a great leader of the digital group. Great people to work with and managers that really care about you and your life, not just what you can do for them. Great clients that were open to being challenged.

    Cons

    Long hours, usual for an ad agency. I wish there was more openess to working remotely. The digital team lost some of its closeness due to very fast growth.

    Advice to Management

    Find ways to better integrate auto group with other digital planners. It became way too siloed.
