    Great Team, Very Poor Executive Management

    Associate Creative Director (Former Employee) San Francisco, CA

    ProsPeople, People, People. The folks on the ground getting the work done are fantastic. That has created a seriously awesome culture and work environment. There was also some serious talent there... it was a sleeping giant.

    Beer on tap. Wine fridge. Soda machine. Work/Life Balance.

    ConsIncredibly poor executive leadership, with even worse executive financial management. CEO is not passionate about advertising or the company's performance beyond revenue. CEO can only speak to about 1% of the work that goes out the door. Expect to see him in the office 5-6 days per month doing just about nothing.

    Advice to Senior ManagementEmpower the senior team leaders to drive new business, make great work, and then you will achieve prosperity. Executives need to get out of their own way, cut some superfluous costs, and nourish the existing talent.

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

    Toxic place... Toxic managment

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

    ProsI enjoyed my coworkers and the quality of work was high, in-spite of senior managment

    ConsWorst set of c-level management I have seen, political, played favorites and bleed the business for personal gain.

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

    Potential. But needs vision.

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee) San Francisco, CA

    ProsWork / life balance is good. Talented and genuinely nice people. There aren't too many big egos. Beer on tap.

    ConsPoor communication from upper management to other employees. Lots of closed door conversations and lots of people asking themselves if they're seeing the writing on the wall.

    Advice to Senior ManagementReiterration of the other reviews here. This shop is capable doing great work for some interesting clients. The opportunities are there, however; a strong, forward-thinking creative vision is not. The agency needs a leader who understands that times have changed. They need a creative leader who has their finger on the pulse of the industry and the changes that are happening within it.

    And most importantly, that leader needs to be empowered. This currently is not the case.

    Amazing people, really poor C-level executives

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee) San Francisco, CA

    ProsThe agency is made up of amazing people from the VPs to interns. Some of the smartest & brightest in the industry & because they care, they produce great work. It is these people that actually run the business. The agency has a very fun environment. Overall, it's the people that do the everyday work that make the organization great & what keeps people there for a long time.

    ConsNo vision from CEO and he is very political. He seems to know little about his business.

    Advice to Senior ManagementGive the "executive team" real power to make change. They are really talented. With some transparency, there's no doubt they could do great things for the organization.

    Amazing place to constantly learn new skills and engage with some of the world's top brands.

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

    ProsSmart team of people at all levels within the group, great mix of high-profile clients - especially in the consumer electronics, digital and health arenas. Provides opportunity to work on global campaigns. Thriving, fast-paced environment but good work/life balance can be achieved. CEO remains extremely invested in the business; he created/supports a unique, fun work environment that allows the agency to thrive and be at its best creatively.

    ConsCan be challenging to work across interdisciplinary groups/offices.

    Advice to Senior ManagementKeep rewarding talent, drive and good work in order to retain the best people at all levels.

    Potential to be great

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

    ProsPassionate people, an open non-corporate culture, work/life balance fluctuates but generally very good for the industry. This place has mostly excellent people.

    ConsNo clear vision, poor communication from upper management, reactive, political at times, process enforcement uneven

    Advice to Senior ManagementFocus, communicate better. Loomis is too small to be run like a big company.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
