    I have been working at Euro RSCG Edge

    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 ManagementAdvice

    Continue 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.

    Pros

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

    Cons

    This 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.

    Pros

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

    Cons

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

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    If 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

    I worked at Euro RSCG Edge

    Pros

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

    Cons

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

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Positive 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.

    I worked at Euro RSCG Edge

    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 ManagementAdvice

    I would recommend that management jump ship - clients (and staff) are walking away almost daily.

    Pros

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

    Cons

    Euro 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 ManagementAdvice

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

    I have been working at Euro RSCG Edge full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

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

    Cons

    Poor 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 ManagementAdvice

    Get 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.
