    Pros

    The people are great, depending on the team you were on. Felt like a family-style business.

    Cons

    Lack of communication from the top down, and lack of respect from the top down.

    Advice to Management

    Give everyone a chance to learn and improve their skills and ensure that all departments realize that they are not the most important and neither is everyone else. They are all equally important in running a business.


  2. Good exposure to niche area of luxury and fashion advertising.

    Pros

    You get to work on some great clients, especially if you're interested in the luxury retail or fashion industries. It's an entrepreneurial environment, with constant change.

    Cons

    Lack of communication sometimes between departments. Entrepreneurial environment comes with constant flux and at times, lack of stability. Stressful at times, especially right before pitches or client presentations when everything needs to come together.

    Pros

    The junior staff are eager to succeed and want to learn. The work has the potential to be interesting if the creative wasn't all the same.

    Cons

    Senior leadership is so enthralled with themselves they can't possibly be productive. No one here knows how to run a team, much less a company. Account management is unable to wrangle the clients and let them, and creative, run wild. Lipman is running itself into the ground- fast.

    Advice to Management

    None. The company won't be around long enough to act on anything.

    Pros

    The clients (at least most of them)

    Cons

    The company itself and management. In July 2013, LIPMAN laid off the whole digital and strategy departments, as well as the CMO, and VPs of accounts due to a cash problem/lack of knowledge of how to operate a business efficiently.

    Advice to Management

    Learn how to run a business or hire people who know how to manage money and run a profitable business.

    You really don't have the resources to focus on digital initiatives? The world is becoming more digital and LIPMAN is becoming more and more backwards-thinking.

    Pros

    A challenging environment with great talent in many different areas of the company. The company environment also gives you the ability to learn a lot if you take the initiative to do so. Good clients and good exposure to many different categories.

    Cons

    Very fast paced environment with high expectations sometimes makes it a difficult place to work. Some employees have voiced they want to be better recognized or better rewarded for their hard work.

    Advice to Management

    Management needs to show that they value all levels of employees.

    Pros

    amazing mentors. talented colleagues. tons of inspiration and opportunity for growth. great space in a great neighborhood. huge array of brands spanning a variety of industries = a very well-rounded portfolio and work that's actually fun. knowing you work at the best fashion agency in the city is also a pro, i suppose.

    Cons

    sometimes i eat lunch at my desk. wa.

    Advice to Management

    continue to inspire us to do great work and love what we do.

    Pros

    lot of work, yes. but learning a lot. "higher ups" are intimidating, sure, but aren't they always? they have to be. yes – my social life has taken a hit since i've started here, but i consider that loss to be worth the gain - the education. because the people here know their sht. so whether or not they scare you, they're still an amazing source of knowledge and talent that you should be learning from if you're not just sticking around to waste your time. and who knows... if you try really, really hard, it might just be an opportunity to prove yourself. what's more, i love the small agency atmosphere and getting to know the people i work with on a more daily basis. they're pretty much all awesome. lots of room for good conceptual work and really appreciate the fact that it finally feels like my skills are being put to good use. it's nice to feel needed.

    Cons

    some late nights. some long days. some days where you forget about lunch. hi. we're in advertising. what's new? better than being bored at your desk with nothing to do... those are the guys that get laid off.

    Advice to Management

    i think the slightest bit of positive feedback – even just saying "good job" – could make a world of difference to the hard-working people here. even if it comes before "but this is completely off." it's just good - necessary - to hear that kind thing every once in a while. it's fuel.

    Pros

    There are phenomenal clients who look for very high end work. Luxury is defined at Lipman, they have some of the best experience in the industry.

    Cons

    Slight disorganization, mixed with alot of new hires make for a very stressful environment in which long hours rarely feel rewarding.

    Advice to Management

    Invest your time in making your work better rather than trying to get more business. Growth is good, so are the rewards.
