Pros

People were smart and passionate.
Plenty of client interaction.
Good way to learn about media industry.
Media Vendors tend to wine and dine you.

Cons

2008-09 was a bad time for the industry. Clients were cutting back on ad spends and poor management meant that the agency lost key accounts.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Situation in Asia was not handled well. There was a lot of uncertainty and mixed messages coming from upper management. Communication should have been more transparent.

No opinion of CEO
