    Pros

    Unparalleled entry-level experience. You learn a lot of transferable skills.

    Cons

    The beauty group is not a great place to start - there is very little room for advancement. Stay away from the Covergirl team especially, it's the worst.

    I have been working at Grey Group full-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    There are lots of good people and the environment is quite relaxed. Many social events are held which let you bond with coworkers and meet new ones. It's been an overall good experience so far.

    Cons

    Processes and procedures can be a bit scattered. Sometimes it feels like the right hand doesn't know what the left hand is doing.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Be a bit more forthcoming about negative situations while they are brewing instead of waiting until the last minute to drop bombs.

    I have been working at Grey Group as an intern (less than a year)

    Pros

    The people and management are some of the most talented in the industry. Top notch clients. Fantastic work environment both tangibly and culturally. Felt like my voice was truly heard.

    Cons

    Not a whole lot. Could use a larger space to fit all the intelligent people. (Already currently expanding so that point is moot)

    great company, great people, great perks, excellent senior management,loved that the CEO was so involved in the creative process.

    didnt like the fact that they outsource the job to india

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    hire more people to do the media/production work or send it to India as well. And hire a more competent supervisor.
