Challenging but rewarding work. Great talent.

Hours can be long and you can sometimes feel overworked, which can be natural for advertising.

    Pros

    Free popcorn, beer, parking. Some good people.

    Cons

    Has struggled to develop breakthrough creative. Agency leadership is, at times, tyrannical, and usually, seemingly totally out of touch with reality. You will likely be saved from a layoff if you are leadership's shiny star du jour (or so they say). Long, really excessively long hours. Yes, it is advertising, but regular 70 hour weeks are not at all unusual across departments. It was an exhausting physically and emotionally draining experience.

    Advice to Management

    Consider bringing in some new blood to help lead, and then let them lead. Also, try to see the value in ALL employees, not just those that have 1 good meeting or get in to the office at 7:30 a.m..

    Pros

    The office space is in a great location. Nice clean facility with plenty of space. Discounted catered lunches daily. Some really smart people who are great to work with. There is no shortage of work for you to do. You will have the opportunity to work across many disciplines if you wish.

    Cons

    No leadership. No company goals. Work/life balance is non-existent and beyond what you expect from an agency. Very little room for career advancement. Basic needs to achieve your daily job is always a chore. Accounts are conditioned to work for the client NOT the agency.

    Advice to Management

    Upper management is completely out of touch with the talent they have in house and worse how to inspire them to do great things. Overall the company has no stance on anything. There are lot's of closed door meetings but tangible information is never shared with the company just lame announcements. It's the first place i've worked at in my nineteen years that didn't have yearly company wide goals and how each department was working together to achieve them. I've seen the company bleed money giving away pure justified billable hours from missmanagement of accounts resulting in lost accounts and the most unfortunate, layoffs of some great talent. If Mullen is an agency of transformation please explain what that means and what your transforming?
