    Pros

    Work / Life balance and pay

    Cons

    Management is nil and too focused on new business instead of taking care of what's happening within

    Advice to Management

    Train yourself to be a good and disciplined manager and not a friend of your employees. Observe those that show potential and mentor them instead of throwing them in with the weaker people and watch if they sink or swim.


  2. Mundane. Limited in creativity and very cookie-cutter in terms of ideas.

    Pros

    Decent salary. Really can't think of any other pro....

    Cons

    If you are looking for an innovative, creative agency, this is not the place for you. Smug management level colleagues are overly protective of their jobs, and so do not encourage development. Only for those who need to think inside the box. Innovation is discouraged. Poaching of ideas from other agencies is commonplace here.

    Advice to Management

    Have less of an "us and them" approach between yourselves and the staff. I don't believe upper management is interested in improving things. They prefer the status quo, so won't waste further comment here.

    Pros

    They help employees to achieve a work/ife balance and offer competitive salaries compared to others in the industry. They also provide continuing education opportunities and a decent benefit program. We have a great team of colleagues.

    Cons

    Not enough feedback on progress or issues of individual employee performance. There is a culture of "us and them" among those in upper management and possibly this adds to a feeling of two classes in the company, at least in our office.

    Advice to Management

    Overall this is a very good company where to work. We need more opportunities to improve and advance. Our review process is hard to follow and apply.

    Pros

    - good opportunity for growth and flexible work hours

    Cons

    - small company, fire people often (due to recession, loss of clients, etc.)

    Advice to Management

    It is important to keep company morale up, especially during rough times. Cancelling bonuses may be necessary for the bottom line, but leaves remaining employees with little motivation.
