Current Employee - Media Supervisor

I have been working at Starcom USA

Pros

Great people, casual environment, learn the ropes of the media industry, wined and dined by vendors often, and is truly a fun place to work at

Cons

Advancement in career is there, although it is somewhat limited and seems to be more based on the opportunity/availability vs. performance/merit

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Communicate news more often to your employees, otherwise it just leads to speculation (which could be false) and be more competitive with other agencies in terms of benefits

    I have been working at Starcom USA full-time (more than 8 years)

    Pros

    Starcom has great credibility and respect in the media industry. You'll work with some of the best and brightest minds and some of the largest companies in the world.

    Cons

    There is a great deal of nepotism and management is often reactive to attrition trends, combating low employee moral by promoting people who aren't yet qualified for the next level.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Advancement should be based solely on hard work, ability, and experience.
