I have been working at Young & Rubicam full-time

Pros

Y&R will allow you to move between different departments fairly easily. Also, it is the kind of agency where one can take on as much responsibility as one wants. In other words, if you are a hard worker, you can get valuable experience that will put you ahead of your peers in other agencies, starting from the entry level position.

Cons

Unfourtenetly, Y&R does not provide proportionate comensation to their employees. Also, promotions and raises are extremely hard to get. For some reason (true across the industry), the agency will rather see a good employee go, and not give approve them a promotion.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

If you value the talent who works for you, make it known. A professional evaluation is one way to mind the gap between both management, employees and expectations from each side.

    I worked at Young & Rubicam

    Pros

    Some of the best in the industry pass through Y&R's doors. Incredible client list because of their global connections.

    Cons

    The size of the company makes it difficult to shine if you're looking to make an immediate impact. Patience is key.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I have no advice for upper management. I now compete against them so I'm not inclined to help.
