Current Employee - Anonymous Employee in Atlanta, GA
Current Employee - Anonymous Employee in Atlanta, GA

I have been working at JWT full-time (more than an year)

Pros

Some good clients, talented people. Desire to be a good agency. Client has loyalty to agency and wants them to do well. Current COO is talented, wish he could lead more rather than just follow the President.

Cons

Once they get a direction they change the course again. Little leadership. Work is suffering because of high turnover. They do not preach or practice any kind of values. Extraordinary amount politics.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Invest in Leaders, not PR people or superstars. Be present in the office and consistent with what you want us to do.

    I worked at JWT full-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    The office was incredibly well-designed

    Cons

    Upper Management is more worried about covering their arses than they are about growing client business, training people and great creative.
    It takes 4 times longer to get anything done b/c you have to dance around the politics of not smart people before you can actually do something.
    Its the place for people that can't get into real creative agency's. It's a bunch of people that spend all their time looking at other people's smart work instead of building great work.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    While you may wear a suit that does not equate to professionalism. You ignore client issues and blame others, you have no idea what a good idea is, and everything is driven by $.
    Quit your job- you are failing.

    Former Employee - Anonymous Employee in Atlanta, GA

    I worked at JWT full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Bars in every office. Good clients, large network, award winning work outside of USA.

    Cons

    Raises are few and fair between. Very little room for growth. Management does not know the talent that they have. Still struggling with digital work.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Challenge employees to be great and they will. Managing by fear of "reorganizations" is poor on morale. Increase communication, praise and celebrate accomplishments
