    Pros

    Great culture where you can build strong relationships.
    Entrepreneurial- everyday is never the same.
    Excellent Quality of Life compared to most ad agencies
    Room for growth if you show it

    Cons

    Politics with upper management and or lack of communication
    Salary

    Advice to Management

    In order to better G2 I think we are in need of offering higher salaries. I strongly believe that "you get what you pay for". In light of this and where I am in the company- I can say that this is something they are working on.

    Pros

    Great place to get feet wet in digita, crm and other growing marketing services disciplines.

    Cons

    Solid, but not the most stimulating or sexy accounts (pepperidge farm, etc)

    Advice to Management

    Strategy is right, but more action from senior leadership would be helpful.

  5. G2 has dramatically changed over the past few years—for the better—it's unrecognizable as the place it once was.

    Pros

    G2 USA is easily the most humane workplace I've ever worked, especially for an ad agency. The people, by and large, are extremely nice, but also hardworking and collaborative. The new management team seems to really want to turn things around, and there have been a lot of new faces that have shaken things up. A bunch of new business wins have injected some fun and excitement back into the agency, and many of the Debbie Downers have (thankfully) left the building.

    Cons

    The creative work could be better and there are still some old-school old-timers who drag things down, although they seem to be shuffling out, whether on their own or by being pushed out. While there are many talented, nice co-workers, there are, of course, some jerks. But it's advertising, so that's to be expected.

    Advice to Management

    If I could, I'd tell management: don't wait to get rid of the dead weight, act quickly and swiftly. There are still a few people who should really be swept away. Let the stars shine, but be careful about playing favorites because sometimes there's a sense among the masses that the mean girls clique has been replaced by another clique, maybe not as mean, but still a clique nonetheless.


  6. A place of people who always complaint (Production Dept) and of course worst politics

    Pros

    Good pay
    Good location and nice office

    Cons

    No welcome to new employees. No recognition of hard work. Not even pat on the back if you work 100s of extra hours.
    Nasty politics
    Management is loud on subordinates

    Advice to Management

    Please wipe off the politics and advise other to concentrate on work

    Pros

    Nice new offices in the flat iron district. Everything is brand new. Fun and interesting clients to work on projects for.

    Cons

    Management is lacking in the friendly department. My creative director was always grumpy and kind of a two face making it not a fun environment.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to employees and try to help them see what it takes for them to move up the ranks instead of making them want to leave and work elsewhere.

    Pros

    Solid name, cool looking office, good to have on the resume

    Cons

    These were some of the worst people I've ever met in my life, let alone worked with. Catty, miserable human beings with nothing better to do than to moan and complain every single day. They ripped apart their boss in front of me and displayed the most unprofessional behavior I've ever experience. No communication between management and employees, none. Horrible. Never looking back.

    Advice to Management

    Be careful who you put in the high up seats. Don't hire creeps.

    Pros

    You will not work normal advertising hours. You can actually have a life. Shake shack is near by. You can probably get promoted to a position you are way under qualified to do ( you won't get the money, just the title ).

    Cons

    None of the work you do will be challenging or interesting. Many of the people here have no idea what they are doing. You won't be able to use any of the work you do in your portfolio. Unless your stay here is short, you will be caught in a downward career spiral into the depths of direct pharma marketing. Just doesn't feel like you're at a real agency. Just a bunch of kids and dinosaurs playing advertising. They haven't won actual new business ( new clients ) in forever yet the head of new business stays around.

    Advice to Management

    If you are young and green and need a place to get some experience maybe come here. If you are old and have given up caring then here is a good place to retire to. Otherwise stay away.

    Get rid of dead weight in the creative department
