Current Employee - QA Engineer in New York, NY

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.

    Pros

    R/GA is full of good people. smart people. It's at the forefront of advertising business. there's a lot room for growth.

    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.

    A tremendous learning experience but became more about endurance than enjoyment.

    Former Employee - Senior CopyWriter  in  New York, NY
    Former Employee - Senior CopyWriter in New York, NY

    I worked at R/GA full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Really smart people. Great client roster. Leading-edge thinking. Strong in-house tech and studio capabilities. Tremendous emphasis on user experience and interaction design. Probably the best digital agency out there.

    Cons

    Not a very nurturing environment – very much sink or swim. Long hours encouraged and expected. Egos to match the size of the intellects. More competitive than collaborative. Not the prettiest part of town in which to work. Three separate buildings and "boutique agency" account structure can feel isolating.
