    Pros

    Definitely the place to go if your looking for this balance. Great culture - fun team of people to work with. Alot of recognition is given out when due.

    Cons

    Favouritism is profound. Too focused on the need for a work life balance. People not pulling their weight equally. Not many people know the brand - even within industry, people are still starting to get to know us.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    There is too much red tape and bureaucracy within the agency internally. This needs to change. Your having a lot of good people leave because of this.

    Pros

    - Very reputable company
    - Strong committment to high quality and client negotiation
    - Great experience on a wide-range of activities (but not accounts)

    Cons

    - No work/life balance - even though it's preached about, it's not practiced at all or fully supported
    - Too much attention to politics regarding promotions, not enough on hard work
    - Anyone without a cheerleader-esque, type A personality need not apply
    - Compensation doesn't match what you put into work
    - While possibly good at actual work, people put into management positions with little experience or training, resulting in poor guidance and disgruntled employees
    - Very little opportunity to grow outside of primary account
    - Clients can be...very...difficult.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Appreciate your employees. Encourage positive feedback, ample compensation, discourage rampant politics and allow employees to have a life outside of their 9 hour days without feeling like they're limiting their career.
