Current Employee - Associate in Chicago, IL

I have been working at Starcom USA full-time (more than a year)

Pros

Very fun atmosphere with an extensive training program.
You are constantly exposed to a wide aspect of media, giving you a very steep learning curve.

Cons

You will work 50-60 hours a week with no overtime.
Starting salaries are very low and are difficult to live on in Chicago.
High employee turnover results in every time a team starts to work well together someone leaves the company or rotates to a new team resulting constantly taking on extra work from others.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Offer employees more incentive to stay at the company and teams will perform more efficiently/effectively, ultimately producing better work for clients.
