Very fun atmosphere, but very difficult to live in Chicago on the salary

Associate (Current Employee)
Chicago, IL

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

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

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
