    Euro RSCG Edge

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee) Boston, MA

    Pros- Fast-paced, dynamic working environment -- something new every day
    - Results orientation -- laser focused on generating return for clients
    - Interesting client challenges -- clients look to Edge for guidance and strategic counsel
    - Great learning opportunities -- ability to own all aspects of a client engagement
    - Rewards entrepreneurial nature -- values ability to grow business and relationships

    Cons- Distributed network of offices can make collaboration and execution difficult
    - Limited integration of creative output/thinking (i.e., DRTV creative team, online creative team, as opposed to a single, unified creative team)
    - Types of client engaged -- traditional "infomercial" brands
    - Resource constraints -- lots of work, too few people (but they're looking to grow)

    Advice to Senior ManagementContinue to refine the vision for the organization, and as you do so, ensure that you are adding the skills sets and capabilities to allow for ongoing success.

    Worked to the bone...kicked in the teeth

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

    ProsInteresting business. Hard working emplyees with some interesting accounts and nice people to work with for the most part.

    ConsThis company works it's employees to the bone with rarely a thank you. The HR department fires people with the "downsizing" excuse and has no qualms about letting go several people at once. Not even the courtesy of a one on one meeting. Last I checked, the entire staff has either left or been replaced.

    I learned a lot and worked really hard but was not compensated

    Assistant Account Executive (Former Employee) Carlsbad, CA

    ProsThey are a leading DRTV agency
    Balance between personal and work life is good
    Being granted requested time off is not an issue
    Their proprietary media system is stellar

    ConsManagement is secretive and uses fear tactics to achieve performance goals
    The pay discrepancy between the support staff, Buyers and Account Executive in some cases is in the hundred thousands.
    Managements lacks ability to empower employees

    Advice to Senior ManagementOpen communication
    Reduce income disparity between departments
    Provide performance evaluations

    It was a great opportunity to learn about direct repsonse advertising

    Project Manager (Former Employee) Hollywood, CA

    ProsExperience, hard working and friendly co-workers, location.

    ConsTerrible hours, lack of respect from Sr. Mgt. Incredible cheapness at all levels of organization.

    Advice to Senior ManagementIf you are going to spend the time and money training people to work there, at least show them some degree of respect and appreciation for the hard work they put in, regardless of whether it accomplishes your goals or not. And to cast people off through "lay-offs" with the excuse that the business is not profitable when it is known that Sr. Mgt makes bonuses regardless of performance, is pathetic, to put it nicely. I'll spare my real feelings on the subject.

    Complicated. They are a leader in DRTV but lack in positive leadership

    Assistant Account Executive (Former Employee) Carlsbad, CA

    ProsThe internal procedures are buttoned up as far as media buying/planning.

    ConsManagement lacks humanity. Politics are thick and promotions are thin.

    Advice to Senior ManagementPositive reinforcement would provide better morale. The intenal departments lack cohesion. The salary gap between departments is open and unfair. Department managers need to provide regular feedback on performance.

    Euro Ship is Sinking....

    Project Manager (Former Employee) Boston, MA

    Pros-Small teams
    -Ability to take project lead
    -Everyone is approachable

    Cons-Impossible to manage projects to any kind of deadline
    -Serious resource issues (but that doesn't stop account people from promising insane deadlines)
    -Lack of leadership, and process with project management
    -Designers skillset is very, very basic - work is barely competent

    Advice to Senior ManagementI would recommend that management jump ship - clients (and staff) are walking away almost daily.

    Great people, competitive salary's and benefits, but Euro RSCG has taken all the fun away

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

    ProsEuro RSCG Edge has bread and consistently attracts some great talent. They offer competitive benefits and salaries, and a professional environment.

    ConsEuro RSCG has taken a lot of the fun out of working in the ad agency world. The larger they get the more emphasis they put on the bottom line and the less they put back into their employees and fostering a fun, creative culture.

    Advice to Senior ManagementInvest in your employees. A fun, creative environment will help draw in new talent and retain the great talent you have.

    Smart people, poor managers

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

    ProsThe ability to learn Direct Response marketing from some of the smartest practitioners in the business.

    ConsPoor processes, communication and staffing to be able to effectively deliver the services being offered. Many departments operate from and different cities and the communication between key stakeholders and support staff within the company is substandard. Different individuals in Senior Management have different strategies for what's important in the creative that's developed, and this has also fractionated the staff.

    Advice to Senior ManagementGet your heads out of the sand and look at why so many good, talented people have either left the agency or are refusing to come aboard. There is dissention in the ranks and it will tear apart the company if not addressed.
