Pros

When I worked there, there were good brands and great people. The digital department was in much need of better talent

The salaries were not at parity with the rest of the industry. There was high-turnover.

Higher better digital talent.

    Pros

    Individually, I worked with some incredibly talented people. It was a pleasure to learn from their experience and work with many of them

    Cons

    Collectively, I'm not sure what happened to Tribal DDB. Bad account management? To many failed pitches? It wasn't for lack of gifted creatives It's been sad watching the Chicago branch slowly implode.

    Pros

    - Friendly people
    - Great creative concepts
    - relaxed environment

    Cons

    - Worst management team of any agency I have worked at
    - Favoritism runs rampant in account management (if you aren't on the in - then you are on the outside)
    - Review system for financial decisions was as good as holding you finger to the wind and guessing their mood of the day

    Advice to Management

    - Get it over with and merge with DDB (it's inevitable)
    - Stop fighting with the studio and share resources - you could both get so much further than you ever will separately
    - Listen to your account and team leads who actually talk to the client and know the situation
    - Hold the line and support your team rather than caving to the client each and every time (making your account team look like idiots in the process)
