    Amazing People, Incredible Management

    Web Developer (Former Employee)
    New York, NY

    ProsThe people across all teams are very sharp, with great senses of humor, and full of brilliant ideas - across all departments! Projects were incredibly well-planned, teamwork was incredibly well coordinated, pay and benefits were great, upward mobility was clear and possible. Most of all, you have face time with people from all levels and positions within the business, and they have a ton to teach and love to learn!

    ConsThere are very few: occasional (expected) long days, but you are taken care of for your hard work from free taxi rides home to just general recognition from supervisors; projects can have short timelines and you have to be the kind of person who doesn't grow too attached to your work :)

    Advice to Senior ManagementManagement at KBSP is incredible - they are open-minded; they have a deep understanding of all facets of the business, including even the smallest roles; they know when to ask questions if they need more specific knowledge (very important trait); they are great at acknowledging when you are putting in 110% percent. The only thing I could possibly say about management at KBSP is that they are such excellent people I wish there was a way to spend more time with them in a day!

    A very nice company to work for.

    Interaction Designer (Current Employee)
    New York, NY

    ProsIt was a team oriented, very friendly environment. I worked on a variety of interesting projects. Everyone listens to everyone and management makes sure that your voice is heard and your contribution is acknowledged. The office is nice and is located in a great area.

    Conschallenging, fast-paced work environment (which for me is a pro)
    I worked on the digital agency side (spies) a lot of web projects.
    the team is growing, sometimes might have to work longer hours.

    Great agency, with great creative minds

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)
    New York, NY

    Proskbs+ has truly innovative and creative minds bringing projects to life. The people are great and the company culture is top-notch.

    ConsChallenges like many agencies include that work-life balance. Last min client requests and tight deadlines happen frequently which can lead to people feeling burnt out.

    Advice to Senior ManagementConsider employee's work-life balance. Important to have rested, fresh creative minds for the best work performance.

    The "Goldilock Zone" of agency life.

    Junior Copywriter (Current Employee)
    New York, NY

    ProsAOR on some impressive accounts that I can boast about. Invention-driven creative culture and a very organic integration of "digital/social" without sacrificing traditional.

    Amazing company culture on the creative floor. Creative dept skews younger, slightly hipster, male, and social. The senior leadership are approachable, involved, and receptive to new ideas.

    The office is constantly being renovated, updated and improved; both in quality of life as well as agency capabilities.

    ConsBelow average entry-level salary (but they do offer paid internships) and difficulty retaining mid-level/senior-level creatives. There's a general sense that promotions are few and far between. Landing on the wrong account can get your career stuck in neutral with no big creative in your book for years at a time.

    No complimentary omelette station.

    Advice to Senior ManagementDo what it takes to keep your best people.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend

    Good experience, but never felt completely comfortable in the environment.

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

    ProsThere are some talented people...

    ConsNot a lot of opportunity to move around or expand your learnings. Was stuck on a single account for over a year.
