    Pros

    Good place to get your start, cool neighborhood to work in, good mix of accounts, lots of fun events for employees to mingle and relax

    Cons

    It's easy to get lost in the crowd, good creative gets killed because some account management is inexperienced (pretty typical of most agencies)

    Advice to Management

    Good job staying involved on the daily goings-on around the office, but it would be nice to have more opportunities to take on "pet projects" that raise the agency's visibility and show the creative talent here

  3. Amazing intern experience, would recommend

    Pros

    If you ask for responsibility, there's plenty to go around. You can learn so much if you put yourself out there. I never had a boring day.

    Cons

    As an intern, I would've appreciated more regular seminars, or more organized opportunities to meet people out of my team.

    Advice to Management

    You rock, don't change.

    Pros

    Great place to make your mark, grow your skills and senior leaders that care (from my experience). Entrepreneurship thrives and is appreciated here.

    Cons

    Lack of 'structure'. BUT this gives account managers the ability to run the account with their own styles and help shape the organization. So not really a con. Entrepreneurship thrives and is appreciated here.

    Great collaborative vibe. Some of the best people in the world work there. Office culture couldn't be better.

    They're going through some turbulence with a change in management.

    Spread the work around. Involve everyone. Get people excited and motivated again.

    Pros

    Some extremely smart people. A couple fun, 2-3 great clients. Especially engaged are the youngest employees. No lack of food and free alcohol parties. Good PR machine.

    Cons

    Leadership is unfocused. Style/substance out of balance. Dominated by a couple good accts. And a bunch of much lesser businesses that no one cares about. If you don't work on the good accts, you're out of luck. Extremely political. Don't understand sr. management shifts - and general lack of transparency.

    Advice to Management

    Decide on a trajectory and still with it for more than 12-18 months.

  10. great if you like cars

    Pros

    nice culture, hours aren't too bad.

    Cons

    dominated by BMW. not a lot of chance as a junior writer to learn how to inhabit different voices if you're just writing swaggery BMW headlines.

    Advice to Management

    expose interns to other clients if you want them to stay.

  11. Rewarding work but not rewarding pay.

    Pros

    Development team works on several fast paced projects. Good understanding initial project requirements. Standard Lamp Stack. Good place to start your career.

    Cons

    Advancement is title based more than salary based. It is an advertising company, owned by a larger group so don't expect tremendous company values. Be prepared for tons of change.
