Great benefits

Former Employee - Anonymous Employee
Former Employee - Anonymous Employee

Pros

Great benefits Big list of clients No micromanaging (at least in my group): just work hard, get your work done and no one will bother you. Large company meant more job security in the event we lost an account (which is inevitable in the ad industry) Lots of time off between all the holidays, flex days and vacation days.

Cons

Pay is low in comparison to other agencies. Large agency means lots of silos and top management will not know who you are. Promoting inexperienced ppl is common. Lots of slackers go unnoticed which is frustrating for those that work hard.

Advice to Management

Try to be accessible to the ppl in your department and know how everyone is performing. It's important to try to acknowledge and reward good talent in order to lessen turnover.

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

    Pros

    - Great training at all levels - Great vacation package - Great health benefits - Free Kelloggs and Coke products - Free beer -Working with really smart people on global clients

    Cons

    - Management can be improved (micromanaging is common) - Long work hours - Hard to have life/work balance - Passive aggressive feedback given

    Advice to Management

    The whole philosophy that you have to "pay your dues" as an entry-level employee by working long hours is hard to accept as an employee. Management should respect the fact that people have lives outside of work and that endorsing life/work balance actually makes employees more effective and productive every day.

    Pros

    - People are friendly - A very good place to start a marketing career - You will learn a lot

    Cons

    - Long hours - Sometime it seems like upper management don't really care because of the culture that everyone is supposed to work long hours and have a lot of work. There exists sort of a "just deal with it" mentality between higher up and lower level employee
