    Pros

    They train you very well. Especially if you're on a good team. You'll also get the chance to do a lot of cool work. Lot's of young people. Big brands. Lot's of Vacation time! 4 weeks as a new hire and you basically get Thanksgiving and Christmas week off. They do a lot to inspire a fun culture too like experience days you can take when ever you want. They also stock the fridges every Thursday and Friday with client brand beers :)

    Cons

    You can get stuck at the bottom or in one place without recognition easily. Horrible compensation, but tis the industry. The work life balance depends directly on your team, i've seen it be great but they can also drive you into the ground. You have to have the guts to speak up and control your own direction. Can be frustrating to feel you're being left behind.

    Advice to Management

    Compensation is an obvious in order to keep great talent, also manage work-life balance across the organization. There's such a variance between teams, it's got to be due to culture not entirely workload.
