I worked at Zimmerman Advertising full-time (more than 8 years)

Pros

Great learning experience, lot of responsibility and ability to move up quickly.

Cons

Too many clients per AE. Too many hours, no work life balance. Lots of vacation but you can never use it! Hard to move from one division to another to further your career. No mentoring, get thrown to the wolves which means no personal growth. Not sympathetic when you bring up these issues. Upper management is the problem. They are apathetic and hands off. Non motivating. Low pay.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Put energy into your employees and the turn over will be less which saves the company money and keeps the clients happy. Care about your people!

    Pros

    Will hire you right out of college. You will learn a lot and have instant responsibilities. Can be promoted after a year.

    Cons

    No pay. You start out with $24,000. Managers will use you and replace you without a problem if you leave.

    It is a sweat shop, they use you, abuse you, then pay you pennies.

    Agency experience, the only large agency in FL.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop taking advantage of your employees and maybe more will stay with the company.
