    I worked at J. Walter Thompson Worldwide full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Interesting and fun group of co-workers; insurance benefits are good; casual work environment both for dress and hours

    Cons

    No regular raises - people that management identifies as 'key' performers get raises but it's all hush-hush; Small client base for the office - little success bringing in clients that are technology only; every major project has a death-march period at the end.
