    Great Company

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee) New York, NY

    ProsGreat culture - talented and very friendly people, beautiful office (Grey New York), fun environment with tons of social events and parties for employees, the agency is growing yet you don't feel like just a number, opportunity to work on great accounts and huge campaigns

    ConsThe salaries are sometimes slightly lower than you'll find at other companies (but it's worth taking the hit for a few grand).

    It is really as great as they say

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

    ProsSuch a creative place to work... it inspires everyone and ultimately develops great work. And people are genuinely nice, which makes work feel a little bit less like work.

    ConsIt is owned by WPP so salaries are not as good as you would like. Definitely try to negotiate as much as possible upfront.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company
