    If you work hard you get noticed and get put on the good projects.

    Pros

    Awesome, smart people and great projects if you're prepared to work hard. Donuts on Wednesdays. Coffee bar in every campus.

    Cons

    Be prepared to work long hours and get burnt out if you're seen as one of the 'better ones'. Still very much a production shop so creatives don't have the voices they'd have at a traditional agency.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Let creatives have a break between projects if they're working 60 hours a week.

    Pros

    Nice accounts, good reputation, beautiful main building, nice coffee bar, talented people

    Cons

    There was pretty much no on boarding process. To learn anything, you have to ask a lot of questions and sit back for a little bit to observe how things are handled. It's trial by fire.

    Additionally, there was (and still is) a lot of politicking involved. This is the biggest negative. There seems to be three camps of people: not very competent but highly political (i.e., talkers over doers), highly talented people with leadership leverage who defend and recognize those who do great work, and people who are lost in the fold and frustrated with the process who eventually leave. R/GA loses a lot of people over the last category.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Pay careful attention to why people are frustrated and eventually leave, and actually do something about it. You are losing a ton of talented people by opting to listen and buddy up to "talkers" on the creative side instead. Friendship at work is fine, but at the end of day we're all here to work, work hard, and build something good.
