    Pros

    Everything! Agency has a vibe that most people will like. Team work is strong and sensible. You are able to give your opinion and feel a part of the team. Pay is good and job promotion is strong.

    Cons

    Really cant say there are any cons from my experience. Most is just the nature of advertising and nothing to do with an agency.

    Advice to Management

    Keep hiring young involved talent!

    Pros

    mb has a very entrepreneurial atmosphere, but that means that you have to work hard. I can see how some people have trouble keeping their jobs, or keeping happy when it's all on "you" to make it or break it.

    Cons

    Less camaraderie than some other agencies, but not much different than other big agencies. Rapid growth has left them with a certain lack of culture. Compensation seems low compared to other bluechip agencies, save some of the worst.

    Advice to Management

    Look for opportunities to increase your value proposition to your employees. The top performers need to have industry-leading salaries and ample staffing around them to stick around and excel.
