    Pros

    There is a big pool of top smart and creative talent, as well as fun brands that offer interesting opportunities for creative executions.

    Cons

    There was a lot of bad client management, which in turn lead to long hours. That in turn also made the quality of work deteriorate over time.

    Advice to Management

    Stop hiring senior people/managers and get more lower tier people to do the actual work. It becomes too much of a burden on those there to do the work of multiple people.

  2. Helpful (1)

    nice peeps. good resources. structure a bit confusing.

    Pros

    a pleasant lack of a-holes.
    varied client mix.
    nice to have serious in-house post capabilities.

    Cons

    there are a lot of comings and goings in upper management.
    long hours--of course.
    salaries flat....and falling.

    Advice to Management

    please interact with clients more.
    please have fewer, but more seasoned daily account people. seem to be minions of hard-working newbies, but few whom clients would seek/heed their 'expert' advice.
