    I worked at R&R Partners full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    They seem to have a good work/life balance and the people are exciting to work with. Work hard, play hard.

    Cons

    In some of the branch offices they are still struggling to find the right leadership to help distinguish them from the headquarters in Vegas.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Don't forget about the people that helped form your branch offices, be sure and take care of them.

    Good work/life balance, but low morale

    I worked at R&R Partners full-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    Work / Life balance, although there are still plenty of people there after 5pm. The Vegas office also starts earlier than the L.A. office.
    Laid back culture, drinking at work
    Speakers and celebrities come in and talk to the employees
    Get to work and collaborate with some really awesome, smart, friendly people
    Really good PTO and holidays
    R&R is a company that respects the individual and lets people be themselves
    Awesome Christmas party and other parties held throughout the year

    Cons

    Some really clueless and gullible senior management
    High turnover, even for an agency
    Yearly reviews mean nothing. You can get an amazing review, but there will be no raise or promotion
    No defined career path
    Low salary and poor medical plan
    The politics and egos are just ridiculous and hinder projects and collaboration
    The Gossip train is insane. There are no secrets.
    The Council is just a talking shop that does nothing of substance for the employees
    Some people don't know their job role, i.e. account executives trying to be art directors
    Titles that make no sense
    There are some great projects to work on, but most of the work is just boring, low level stuff.
    Some people can get away with doing nothing, while others are overwhelmed with work
    A lack of diversity in management

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    When I first started at R&R, I had the worse manager I've ever had in my entire career. Incredibly, this person got promoted, but that was a good thing for our department. However, when you put clueless, dishonest and highly political narcissists in management roles, you really damage morale and only contribute to turnover.

    You need to stop listening to the people who sound awesome, talk a good game, but deliver little. Judge people on what they've actually done, instead of what they say they can do. A few have been found out, but there are still some there that have the ear of upper management.

    I worked at R&R Partners full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Lenient rules and working conditions; good people to work with; casual atmosphere; good clients and fun to do work for them.

    Cons

    I got the feeling that management consisted of small-town personalities trying to emulate Big City mentalities. And failing. Low pay, long hours, salary increases are almost non-existent. Clique-ish. Very. They allow experienced prrofessionals to leave the company and replace them with youth that hasn't a clue to what the business is all about. Management is more concerned with their bottom-line and expanding offices than they are about taking care of the good people they have.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get back to the basics and stop trying to be what you're not. Appreciate the good people you do have and do everything you can to keep them from leaving.

    Pros

    Paid okay. They like to throw parties. Culture speaks to work/life balance.

    Cons

    Not a lot of respect for the employees. Long hours unless you are in the Vegas office and then there is not one after 5pm. They think parties fix morale rather than getting to the root of the problem - bad management. They like to make up job titles that have no baring on the job or life after R&R.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Think long term and stop living off "What Happens in Vegas..." campaign.

    Pros

    Great culture. Embraces core values of work/family balance. The company's motto is "Work hard, play hard" and that is true.

    Cons

    Management and company direction is constantly evolving Pay is fair when compared to the cost of living in Las Vegas.

    I have been working at R&R Partners full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    The culture, also known at the R&R Way, can be fun. Work-life balance is epic; the place is deserted at 5 PM every day, and much of the months of July and December. This may not be a plus for everyone, but the frequent jokes about drinking in the workplace are rooted in truth.

    Cons

    Low/stagnant pay, deteriorating benefits, uneven/mediocre management, nepotism.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Quit hiring and promoting former cheerleaders and jocks, and instead recognize people who know what they're doing.

    Pros

    This company has a great atmosphere and team spirit from the minute you walk into a job. It's a lot of hard work and long hours but there motto is "work hard, play hard". It's competitive but there is room for movement throughout the company.

    Cons

    The pay can be very little at times when you consider the amount of hours you put in (at least in the entry-mid level jobs). You really have to love your job and coworkers more than the pay, but that's agency life for you.

    Pros

    Family atmosphere with good benefits. Good quality of life. Independent agency not lorded over by holding company. Great people in the trenches. Good clients and good work quite frankly.

    Cons

    Management and company direction is constantly evolving and not well defined. Leads to confusion for workers. Drama and empire building within management team. Pay is fair when compared to the cost of living in Las Vegas. But, not fantastic.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    None... it is what it is. You either like this place and the culture or you don't.

    Pros

    Good benefits, friendly co-workers, interesting clients, not stuck into job role. Sometimes they are good about having fun activities. The Halloween stuff is fun.

    Cons

    Low salary, long hours, unbalanced hierarchy. It takes forever to get promoted compared to other agencies that seem to reward good work much quicker.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Spread the wealth - pay more, promote from within, and help limit late nights
