    I was an Assistant for a year before it closed

    Assistant Media Planner (Current Employee) Encino, CA

    ProsLearned a lot from senior management on my accounts. Great environment, enjoyed going to work. Made some awesome friends.

    ConsResponsibilities arent exactly clear when it comes to Assistant vs Planner. In applying for new jobs found this to be an issue as an Assistant I was too experienced for some positions but not ready to be a Planner at some agencies.

    Advice to Senior ManagementNada... you closed.

    It was a learning process. Very unprofessional

    Senior Negotiator (Current Employee) New York, NY

    ProsThe people were nice as were the offices. At first it was a first run operation -with constant training and new innovative ideas. The original media director was first rate - and very knowledgable.

    ConsIt was unorganized - and accounts came and went and no one was notified. No promotions in the Local Broadcast Department.

    Advice to Senior ManagementBe honest.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Pros-Working with really knowledgable people
    -Exciting accounts

    Great learning experience

    Assistant Media Planner (Former Employee) New York, NY

    ProsGreat place to learn when starting out your career in media. Good people within the New York office make working fun dependent upon who you report to. Company pays overtime at the planner level.

    ConsHigh turnover at all levels. Salary is on the low side compared with other agencies. Promotion from within dependent upon turnover

    Advice to Senior ManagementSpeak up regarding company policies that negatively affect your employees
