    Current Employee - Mother (Account Executive) in New York, NY

    I have been working at Mother New York full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Culture, people, flexibility in lateral movement

    Cons

    Upper management structure not aligned & resourcing not well thought out, current client roster and work unfulfilling, creative output not as strong as it used to be

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Needs alignment in the direction of the agency, projects we accept, resourcing, advocating work life balance and efficiency rather than excessive work with little output

    I worked at Mother New York full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    It has great company culture, perks like fun parties and trips, free breakfast, nice people, office is amazing if a long trek from subway.

    Cons

    You can tell the people at top love the company but don't have the organizational skills to keep everyone in line. It feels like a free for all with everyone including mid-level people tending to their own agenda. The culture is top notch but seriously what company isn't Google-fied nowadays? Free food and parties don't make employees happy in the long term. There is no type of mentoring or help from senior level to help those under them. Sure everyone is "helpful" and polite for short term stuff but you're on your own in terms of career guidance.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Practice what you preach especially when what you're preaching is why people come to work for you in the first place. Employees have a lot of love for the company but it doesn't seem last long as they quickly see the place is not cracked up to be. That being said, the agency and the guy at the top is so good- you can tell everyone roots for him but its too bad because the agency has the potential to be great.

    Quirky agency with lots of personality and distinct culture.

    Former Employee - Design Intern in New York, NY

    I worked at Mother New York as an intern (less than an year)

    Pros

    Work on really interesting projects and take company culture seriously. Hard workers and good people, an overall talented bunch. Lots of office activities and team building. Do care about their interns and embed them into the company seamlessly. Distinct hierarchy but not in a negative way. Really interesting office setup.

    Cons

    Not short of employees that have big egos but balanced by super friendly people.

    Former Employee - Art Director in New York, NY

    I worked at Mother New York full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    The people that are not part of management were actually really dedicated and put a lot of hard work in to make some good things since they opened shop in nyc.

    Cons

    They use the culture to manipulate younger people who are just starting out to work their way above their salary range, and thus the work looks like someone who is just starting out in advertising did it
