I have been working at R/GA full-time for more than a year

Pros

High salary and great benefits with pretty nice offices. The agency is constantly pitching and winning new business and has a roster of great clients. If you can get on Nike you're career is probably set.

Cons

If you don't get on Nike you might get stuck doing some really boring work and toiling away on low profile projects. It can be really hard to get anyones attention within the agency and placed on new work.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Rotate your designers around more. If there are people with specific niche talents get them to work on all sorts of projects or else they'll go stale. If they've dedicated more than a year to a crappy account or a thankless task, give them what they ask for and put some other poor sap in their place.

    I have been working at R/GA full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    - Really talented, dedicated people. Hard to find someone who is a screw-up.
    - Salary is on the better side of competitive.
    - Very relaxed work environment.

    Cons

    - Very little oversight from upper management
    - Tends to rely on talent rather than good organization, resulting in slightly skilled water treading instead of power swimming.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Take a more active role.

    Cons

    the pay isn't what it is elsewhere. they'll ultimately need to start to compensate better if they want to attract the best talent in the business.
