    It was good, but very dependent on leadership.

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

    ProsGreat fun environment, ability to move across various projects and take on new things if you have the desire to do so.

    ConsLeadership was troubling but over time it seems as though they are finally finding their footing again.

    Advice to Senior ManagementYou felt great when you held on to a small start-up ethic, rather than a big corporate entity lost in the shadows on Publicis.

    A tough environment but one where a lot can be learned

    Account Management (Former Employee)
    Atlanta, GA

    ProsYou will learn a lot and have opportunities for wide exposure to mobile, digital, in-store, social and media
    Agency perks--free caffeine, dog friendly environment, casual atmosphere and dress, free monthly lunches

    ConsAtlanta office is heavily focused on Verizon, the largest client. Little opportunity to work on other lines of business or be exposed to other clients
    Agency leadership was quick to make sweeping organizational changes with little forethought resulting in an exodus from the Account management department
    Work-life balance is challenging

    Moxie is a great place to build your career

    ACD (Current Employee)
    Atlanta, GA

    ProsFree lunch Friday, Beer Friday, 401k matching combined with really smart people make this a great place to establish yourself and flex your career muscles. You're expected to work hard...and you should!

    ConsThere aren't any cons that other agencies don't have. There's lots of work, and sometimes tempers flare and situations aren't handled the way they should. There's definitely a bit of favoritism, and type-casting.

    Advice to Senior ManagementContinue to foster a spirit of collaboration, and learn to value people's opinions about the changing landscape. Change is hard...but don't punish people for not always understanding your vision. Part of that is on you as leaders.

    Great

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

    ProsThe people are great and awesome work environment. People are always willing to help. Management also encourages people to work hard and play hard.

    ConsHours can be long which can hinder work-life balance. Often times, work done isn't acknowledged or they do not give proper credit to the people involved.

    Sometimes a little crazy but all in all a great place to work.

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

    ProsIntelligent and great people to work with. Many fun times and camaraderie between the agency departments. Amazing health benefits and vacation days.

    ConsCreative was lacking but with the new Creative Director that should be improving. Many disconnects between leveraging and improving processes between the different client teams.

    Advice to Senior ManagementKeep the conversations and your doors open for those who have questions or just want to chat.

    Pure and Utter Hell!

    Media Planner (Current Employee)
    Atlanta, GA

    ProsBeer Friday, health benefits (only because of Publicis as the parent company) and although we have a lot of days off, you have to work even when you are on your deathbed..

    ConsI have worked at quite a few agencies, even publisher side and have held multiple different roles and I have to say, this is the absolute worst place I have ever worked at.. Shoveling elephant poop at the zoo would be a step up.. Insane hours (like 90+ hours a week), absolutely no help from "upper management", no training, basically it's like being an indentured servant.. I would cut off a limb just to get the hell out of there and could write about my utter hatred for this company but it would literally be a novel

    Advice to Senior ManagementNo reason to even provide advice as they have never and will never listen... Run as FAST as you can people!!!!

    – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Aw snap - you have entered the 7th ring of hell

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)
    Atlanta, GA

    Pros80% of the people (that is most people not in management) are great people to work with. Beer at 3 on Friday, free lunch every other Friday ample days off.

    ConsManagement is disconnected from reality. Titles and salaries are handed out like beer and free lunch just to keep sad people in roles they never wanted and don't fit.

    Advice to Senior ManagementStop hiring people for jobs you don't intend to let them do. Psych tests for some of your managers - there are a few that are seriously messed up. Take the beer money and put it into real tools and systems to help us do our jobs. Stop telling us what you will do and actually get off the phone or out of your chair and actually do something.

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