    I worked at Team Detroit full-time

    Pros

    Big agency experience and great client - national and international reach/opportunity. Lots of good people. Great place if you want to learn the business and work hard for a demanding client.

    Cons

    Low pay, top heavy management, high performance isn't recognized. Management seems to be just filling time - little enthusiasm or creativity. Basically a large corporation disguised as an ad agency. Horrible HR department. Organization as a whole is political to a fault. Very little opportunity to move up beyond a certain level - the people at the top aren't going anywhere and they seem happy to just keep filling jobs with cheaper people. No clear career path.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Start investing in your employees who perform and enjoy what they do - it will pay off in the long run.

    Pros

    Dedicated creative team, attention to minute detail. Excellent work environment, nice benefits and helpful HR staff. Automotive agency work can be exciting and interesting to automobile enthusiasts.

    Cons

    Read the other reviews and maybe you will notice a trend.
    Here are my negative experiences:
    Need to ask for work. No accountability for project managers, supervisory roles or team members. Cliques and favoritism determine the work available to contractors. Team leaders are not chosen for their ability to lead teams, or individuals. Large disconnect between creative team and contractors. Until hired on, all contractors are considered as good as your last contract term. No opportunities to move up, or into a different creative field within the company.
