    Pros

    Easiest job you'll ever have in advertising

    Cons

    Account team runs the agency. It's all about making revenue goals. The work is garbage and the current ECD team that's running the department are the biggest hacks I've ever met.

    Advice to Management

    Maybe listen to someone that doesn't have a VP title and you'd hear that everyone is miserable

    Pros

    Fast paced, collaborative teaming, learn-on-the-fly encouraged, no handholding. High performance environment, relaxed culture

    Cons

    Even lower level managers tend to form silos, no interdepartmental communication at all, no exposure among layers of management or with other departments, even ones where knowledge sharing could be beneficial to both.

    Advice to Management

    Synthesize better to achieve gains from all these acquisitions. It doesn't require centralizing to have the ability to know who else is out there solving what problems, even a bboard would do the trick. The silo effect is a bit dangerous though, it makes policy management impossible, for starters.
