    - Get to work on real projects
    - Helpful and insightful seminars
    - Real-world experience with big-name clients and agency that looks terrific on resume

    Cons

    - Very cutthroat environment with a slight underlying sense of smarminess
    - Very long hours

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Very good workshop though can be very intimidating. Would have liked to see mentors smile more and be a bit more encouraging.

    Personally satisfying but professionally, a dead-end.

    I have been working at Martin Agency full-time (more than 8 years)

    Pros

    Smart people. Pockets of nice people. "Can-do" spirit and ability.

    Cons

    It is a career dead-end. There is no room for growth as there are only "2" offices, and one of them is a satellite, at best. There are pockets of really, really nasty, passive-agrressive people being the South.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Don't worry about being smart and put together so much. Be real.
