    Pros

    Great 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.

    Cons

    Hectic, 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 ManagementAdvice

    Prove/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.

    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 good profits
    Very heirarchial.
    Not very open to growth, unless you're some senior management's "favorite". In which case, all the doors open for you

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    carefully watch the employees. they work too hard. too fast. and suffer burn-out easily.
