    Pros

    The people are great - smart and fun people to be around. Good and relaxed office culture. Management is involved and listen; easy to talk to. Flexible hours and great work/life balance. Great benefits and time off.

    Cons

    Difficult to grow within the company in certain departments (limited opportunities), pay is much lower than other companies with same positions. Raises and promotions are very rare.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Offer more plans for growth within the company. A lot of people feel "stuck" in their current jobs will little options for promotion.

    Pros

    Smart people, fun atmosphere and good clients. Vacation and benefits awesome.

    Cons

    Severely limited ability to advance your career - easily get stuck in "process" purgatory. Workload not equal among teams or individuals. Salary not great.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Reward individuals who are loyal and are your "go to" workers. Promote those who deserve it, not those who threaten to quit.

    Pros

    Good environment and people. There is a lot of work to do and the people there are very helpful so the days went by like a breeze.

    Cons

    They do not provide any assistance for Interns that come in from outside Seattle. So while other companies offer housing or give advice on housing these guys did none of that.

    Current Employee - Anonymous Employee  in  Seattle, WA
    Current Employee - Anonymous Employee in Seattle, WA

    Pros

    Family friendly, career track and a great view from the lower Queen Anne offices. Competitive, yet smart people tackling some interesting technologies challenges.

    Cons

    Silos between the media teams and other organizations limits crossover and collaboration. Regional US practices tend to let one geography specialize in a certain thing (creative, media) while others fall back in that area. Not a problem overall, but it prevents a uniform client experience at certain office locations.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Continue with the new 2014 roll-out for restructuring the disciplines as it seems like the right direction to go.
