Meaningful work, good benefits, low pay, poor balance

Account Executive (Former Employee)
Pasadena, CA

I worked at Russ Reid

ProsGreat benefits, lower employee turnover than a typical ad agency, employees are full of heart and passionate about what they do. Semi-flexible hours during the day, or ability to work from home from time to time if necessary.

ConsHectic, uneducated clients, lots of women, lots of grads from local Christian universities, poor general work/life balance amongst employees, very Christian environment--almost too much, wish the company was more creative/laid back, not cutting edge advertising, company is very process driven to a fault, insanely low pay for job responsibilities and location, but the company gets away with it because the clients are non profits. There is a large disconnect between promotions/salary increases in half of the company, and very slow promotions in the rest of the agency.

Advice to Senior ManagementProve/make clear--often-- to your employees that you truly value their sacrifice and hard work for the agency. Even if it comes to spending your own money to make your colleague feel appreciated.

Extremely Crazy Schedule, No Work/Life Balance

Account Executive (Former Employee)
Pasadena, CA

I worked at Russ Reid


Pros: Omnicom Agency AEs get up to 3 weeks PTO Summer Fridays Cons: Underlying Christian favoritism, can't prove it- but know it's there Over Process Driven. To the point where it's sometimes debilitating. And doesn't render… Advice to Senior Management: carefully watch the employees. they work too hard. too fast.… No, I would not recommend this company to a friend More
