    I worked at Mr. Youth full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    On paper it's a hip and great place - barista, nice people, a night out on the corporate card every couple months.

    Cons

    Juniors are completely underpaid. Seniors overvalue the work they do. Everyone works 12 hour days and sacrifices any life outside work.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    23 year olds aren't slaves.

    Pros

    if you're young and can drink the kool-aid and believe the bs, go for it.

    Cons

    Expect long hours, people fresh out of college calling shots on project deadlines, people with inflated egos.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    stop watching 'Mad Men' and pushing all the employees to vote your company as the best place to work for Crains NY survey.

    I worked at Mr. Youth (less than an year)

    Pros

    Barista, some friendly colleagues, awesome office with great views, some notable brands.

    Cons

    The work sucked the life out of you. All talk and lack of appreciation. Entry levels are slaving til late nights thinking that's what work life is. Senior level management rarely interacts with you. I had 3 amazing colleagues that kept me sane, but needless to say none of us are there anymore. Oh yeah, they force you to take the crain's best place to work poll - ain't that cheating?

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Be real. Take action when needed. Let's get some STRUCTURE.

    I worked at Mr. Youth full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    The people are talented, hard-working, and awesome. It's very much a work hard/play hard collegial atmosphere that's easygoing and not very corporate.

    Cons

    There is a complete lack of structure and strategic vision. Processes throughout the agency are ad-hoc at best and one very much feels like it's a bunch of children running around without adult supervision. This place is a hot mess when it comes to conducting business properly - the CFO refuses to internally circulate a professional rate card, for example - and the leadership of this agency has a lot of growing up to do. MRY is full of talk but a lack of follow through or substance. It's also famous for underpaying and overworking - bottom line, don't start your career here. They treat management incredibly well and overpay them while working junior level employees like slaves and underpaying them consistently.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop proliferating a cult of personality, buckle down, grow up, and introduce proper structure and compensation.
