I have been working at O'Keeffe & Company

Pros

I enjoy my job because of the people here and the challenging projects that cross my desk every day. I work hard and I feel that my manager and my teammates recognize that. If you put in the effort, you definitely get rewarded with promotions and bonuses.

Cons

It's definitely not 9-5. Like pretty much any agency, the schedule can be unpredictable and is largely based on clients' needs and deadlines. You'll need to plan to put in weekend time and then some.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

I'd like to receive a little more ad-hoc feedback, not limit the big discussions on performance for just during reviews
