Very strong job processes in place, and good understanding of execution

Cons

Radical restructuring over the last year - no more loyalty to employees
Burnout Work model: get them young & cheap, work them very hard
Utilization pressure over creative considerations
Forced social-fun atmosphere - Kool Aid mentality
Wants desperately to be digital - not there yet

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Good luck with the new cutthroat model.

    Pros

    You will work and learn from the best here. The smartest, sharpest people in the business. It is the high level of the talent that makes life different here.

    Cons

    It's not for everybody. This is no place to hang out. You will be pushed and will be asked to grow and work hard. It is fun and satisfying, but challenging.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep pushing and reaching to be better.
