    I have been working at Momentum Worldwide full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    *Regarded as one of the top, well known marketing agencies
    *Blue chip client roster
    *Fantastic benefits, generous Paid Time Off schedule and Holiday break

    Cons

    * Office culture has shifted downward into a pathetic, popularity game.....like being in high school all. over. again. Select employees are put on pedestals while other hard working individuals do not get noticed for their work or their client results produced.
    * Opportunities for advancement or internal opennings are NOT fairly posted or properly handled from a consideration standpoint or overall interview process. (again ALL based upon office politics and favorites).
    * Personnel transactions (departures) are poorly handled

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    * Revisit and practice what you preach with the pillar: "be one"
    * Open your eyes and look beyond all the pretty faces (they will only get the agency so far with their good looks). Look BEYOND that and at the people who are in the trenches doing the dirty work and pulling their own weight.

    I worked at Momentum Worldwide full-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    Good place for junior level people to get experience. Big name clients that look good on a resume.

    Cons

    They do not go after clients who would be a good fit for the agency, rather it's all about revenue and darn the poor creative and account folks who have to work on clients who view the agency as nothing more than a vendor. Momentum senior leadership does not care that client demands literally suck the life out of talented people. Senior people do not stand up to the client when they make outrageous demands. It's a joke they consider themselves a strategic advertising agency and should just stick to sales promotion.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Value your people more and treat them like talented professionals not order takers.
