    I have been working at Lowe Lintas full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    1. You learn a lot from some great people working there.
    2. As long as you do your work, no one's really bothered about what else you do.
    3. Can blare music all day long.
    4. You get to work on the best brands in India with the best resources in the industry.

    Cons

    1. The lack of hierarchy is sometimes a hindrance.
    2. Life support system(Canteen, recreational stuff) is not very developed.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    If you can do something about creature comforts in the office I think it'll make a significant difference in productivity.

    I worked at Lowe Lintas as an intern for less than a year

    Pros

    1) Getting along with the team is important: If you get along with your team then there is a lot that you can learn.
    2) Great brands to work with: Especially if you are new to the world of advertising and wish to make a career in this field, Lintas is the best company to work for.
    3) New management is better: Unfortunately things didn't shape up well in my case, but I guess the entire management has changed now and all the old people are not working with Lintas any more. Hopefully, the new teams are much more professional!

    Cons

    1) During a client audit, some data was tampered in my Excel sheet and I was blamed for it. I was sacked and asked to leave immediately. The reasons given were erroneous data that caused embarrassment before the client and also that the team doesn't like me. I walked up to the senior management and HR requesting a surveillance by the IT team and also asked them to check the cameras in the premises but no sort of actions were taken. This incident is still a mystery to me.
    2) Late hours is a common practice especially if you are a new joinee. However, over time you will learn to manage time.
    3) Salary is low and that's common with most advertising agencies. But it's definitely worth all the learning!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Learn to believe your employees even if he/she may be an Intern. At least do some surveillance and collect evidences to arrive at the facts before drawing any conclusion.
