Pros

You work for a huge account that's very directly tied to the American economy. When you produce good work, you feel like it might actually have a huge impact. You have a hand in work that reachers millions of people in prime time. But that doesn't neccesarily mean its exciting work. The company has the ability to do great things, if the were brave enough.

Cons

When things don't go as planned, the effects are felt equally strongly.The client is a sinking ship. Things might get a lot worse before they get better. The leaders are old dinosaurs opposed to change.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

You can't keep doing the same things you've always done and expect them to work. Take risks. The result can't be much worse than what's already taking place.

    Pros

    Working there opened doors of opportunity as far as having a highly rated international ad agency on your resume. I believe their good name for advertising and their reputation, more then mine, got me the initial interviews and a couple of job offers. The design firms i worked with liked the fact that a designer from a big agency came to work for them.

    Cons

    There were a lot of office politics involved. If you negotiate well through office politics you will thrive. As in high school, you deal with the popular kids and the not so popular kids and you realize that life isn't fair all the time. You need to play well within that culture

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I don't really have any to give them, don't think they'd listen.
