    Pros

    It's incredibly easy when you get the hang of it. The co-workers are mostly good people and the atmosphere is laid back when it can be. If you want a lax job and don't care where your life is going, this may be a viable place for you.

    Cons

    No actual job descriptions. No raises. No bonuses. No opportunities for career growth. No leadership development or mentorship. No formal training. No seminars, lectures, workshops, outings... nothing.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Do everyone a favor and close your doors. After 30+ years of bumbling through running a business, it should finally be obvious to you that you are the cause of every major problem this business has. Honestly, you deserve some kind of a reward for being able to circle the drain this long, but rats have no merit. There's nothing to be proud of here.

    I worked at Falls Agency full-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    Laid, casual back atmosphere. Ability to wear many hats and touch on several news skills.

    Cons

    Grossly underpaid, high-stress atmosphere - high pressure and high expectations with very little return, if any. Recognition for hard work or above-and-beyond efforts are few and far between. Unclear direction or strategy for general projects and business as a whole. Technology is office in not up-to-date, causing constant crashes and issues for employees. Requests for working equipment go unheeded.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Owners are too hands on causing inefficiency. Expectation is to spend as much time there as the owners with no monetary or company stake. Opinions of even "valued" employed are not given respect. Seem unable to listen/hear constructive feedback on business without hurt feelings. Management must learn to keep up-to-date on technology and software for themselves and all employees. Employees are not to blame for owners business mistakes.

    Great talent, but too many management cooks in the kitchen.

    Pros

    Can take on as much as you'd like
    Management cares about its employees.
    Can wear many hats
    Collaborative work environment
    people are down to earth

    Cons

    Ownership is too hands on with the agency and the team. Never had the chance to have the reins taken off to let experts be experts. Not business savvy.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Ownership needs to let step out and let the staff competencies and talent shine. Needs to have a more diversified portfolio of clients. Needs to better embrace new technology.
