I have been working at The OutCast Agency as an intern (less than an year)

Pros

During recruitment and early phase of employment it was a fun place to work and I was treated with respect.

Cons

Mid-level managment snipes at those beneath them. There was one employee--and when she felt threatened or if there was ever a question--even for clarity--you were then targeted by her and she systematically began eroding away not only my confidence--but the confidence that others had in me.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Carefully monitor the tendencies of the person I am referring to--you know who she is--she is the one that pentultimately is responsible for the termination of the majority of the employees that come and go in this revolving door culture--why revolving?--no one can stand working/inter-facing with her, it becomes apparent, and she sees them eliminated and she moves on to her next target.

    I worked at The OutCast Agency as an intern (less than an year)

    Pros

    OC has an amazing client list and portfolio of work, but the bragging rights and client exposure aren't worth the lack of basic human decency.

    Cons

    I'm not even sure where to start. The internship program is a revolving door of hard-working, hungry young professionals who do not realize they are being taken advantage of in a horrible job market where college grads willing to work for Facebook and Instagram are a dime a dozen. If you are not well-liked at OutCast, do not count on being hired on at the end of your internship. It is nothing more than a popularity contest where blame can easily be passed onto interchangeable interns and your fate is essentially sealed by whomever you're answering to, regardless of your work ethic.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Fix the fact that most decisions and promotions are based on blatant favoritism.
