    I worked at The Mars Agency full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Laid back and child friendly. Great co-workers, flex hours, free breakfast provided the first of every month. Nice work atmosphere, easily accessible to to restaurants and freeway, able to where comfortable and casual clothing to work.

    Cons

    The company does not value the loyalty of long-time employees that have been loyal for over 10 years. The upper management is too top heavy. Management does not value the opinions of the employees. No place for artist to advance to unless you are a favorite of the manager.

    Advice to Management

    To encourage their employees with opportunities to learn with cutting-edge training, motivation to what to work late hours and incentives.

    I worked at The Mars Agency full-time

    Pros

    Co-workers are supportive and fun. Local office offers good work-life flexibility.

    Cons

    No structure. No growth potential. No career path. No standardized process. No training. No structure. Poor creative team. No managment support. Clients are king and if you don't click with them you're out. No 401K match. CEO writes in rambling, run-on sentences. Learn to use punctuation, Ken!

    Advice to Management

    Revamp your creative team. Value your employees. Offer some training in basic agency stuff for those that have no experience. Sink or swim is not a viable option.
