Pros

The people are extraordinarily bright and somehow motivated. There are opportunities to work with a variety of teams, partners and clients. You get the chance to interact with everybody from project managers to marketers to creatives.

Cons

Absolute chaos, constant churn, the work stacks up and it never ends. It's highly repetitive with little opportunity to learn. After a while it becomes so mundane, and too many hours, that you get burned out. The team is extremely understaffed. You do everything and work alone in an individual silo. There is no collaboration with other team members. The VP is an uninspiring workaholic with little understanding of what the team needs to be successful. Hours and hours of process have been added, but nothing has been done to improve the quality of work. His priorities are client, billable hours, process and more billable hours. He's full of ideas, but has no management skills whatsoever.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Focus on the people as a resource, provide opportunities for learning, keep the team up to date on the latest technologies, analytical tools and skills. Less process and chasing the bottom line, more about creating a satisfying work environment. Better work life balance before the entire team burns out.

    Pros

    The people are fabulous: cordial, professional and smart. The work has been satisfying.

    Cons

    It suffers from corporate baggage, meaning there are layers and bureaucracy from outside the office. It tends to make mountains out of mole hills.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    There has always been an instance of an open door policy and that is fair. It is a team approach to new business and they have been very successful in that regard.
