    The real deal

    Executive Assistant (Former Employee) New York, NY

    ProsThere are a lot of "perks" at the agency but not at the expense of the company. It's all provided by vendors. Things like coffee bar, free massages, cupcakes.

    ConsYou work long hours and for little pay. They should be paying overtime to certain employees and are not. Senior, excutive staff is taken care of (profit shares, etc.) yet the regular staff is not. Raises are not annual.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    No standard process or procedures to run the business

    Senior Financial Analyst (Current Employee) New York, NY

    ProsYoung environment with lots of food and drink perks around the office.

    ConsMedia Managers are generally on the younger side. they either were really good to make it to a high level or they cruise by over the years and get promoted without knowing anything. So nothing in the middle

    Advice to Senior ManagementFocus on potential talent from within instead of looking on the outside for experience

    Great work environment, average salary, fun people. In all, a great experience.

    Assistant Negotiator (Current Employee) New York, NY

    ProsThe people I work with are all willing to teach and are extremely friendly. Its a young company, so its very easy to fit in right out of college. All major holidays off, averagye pay and vacation days, and even extra days off in the summer.

    ConsSomedays, especally during busier seasons, I do not end up gettng out until 7 or even 8 when I feel like I've already done enough work for the day.

    Good, Bad, Ugly

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee) New York, NY

    ProsThe compensation and benefits package was great as were most of the fellow employees. There was a lot of comraderies depending upon which clients you were assigned to.

    ConsThere is a great lack of communication from senior management on the things that could affect your work life. A lot of looking at numbers and not what actually what the worker bees are accomplishing. When the workers see but are not told what is going on it's demoralizing.

    Advice to Senior ManagementYou are in the communications business, learn to communicate. Members of the leadership need to really know what and how work is being accomplished. Sometimes the numbers do not tell the entire story.
