    Pros

    Nice neighborhood. Near transportation. Decent places to eat lunch and a Starbucks across the street (sorry. the pros have to be at least 20 words). Like any place there are some good people there.

    Cons

    Not judged in work quality but how late you are willing to stay at night.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get rod of the dead wood

    Pros

    People at S&H are driven to product high-quality work, supports a creative environment. Hands-off management style lets teams run their own brands. Valued employees are well-compensated. Very flexible and supportive of individual employees. Great location and great people.

    Cons

    Can be slow to cut dead weight. Account services and production are particularly uneven. The print production studio is understaffed, and the digital production studio DNE so art directors have to handle it.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Be more consistent with expectations across employees and hold people accountable when they fall short of expectation.

    Current Employee - Scientific Associate in New York, NY

    Pros

    S&H has a very good environment and atmosphere, people are nice and seem to care about what they do. The office is located by union square, which is a great location.

    Cons

    S&H is not particularly well known for their salary compensation. Furthermore, the medical benefits could definitely use an upgrade. Finally, they need to pay their medical staff better, as this is a HEALTHCARE communications agency.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Compensate employees more competitively (salary and health benefits)

    Former Employee - Art Supervisor in New York, NY

    Pros

    Room for advancement if you come in at a lower level. Less so at upper levels. They're working on making it a more fun and lively place to work.

    Cons

    Some silo-ization. Somewhat top-heavy. But they're aware of that.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Communication and cohesion could be stronger. But they're working on it. Could use more Creative leadership.

    Growth potential for those with positive attitude

    • Career Opportunities
    Current Employee - Management  in  New York, NY
    Current Employee - Management in New York, NY

    Pros

    Across the board, commitment to high-quality teamwork and output is starting to be recognized and rewarded. The in-house pool of digital expertise (and opportunities to use that expertise) is growing deeper. Last remnants of the "old Sudler" are finding themselves fighting a desperate rearguard action, with senior management committed to embracing change.

    Cons

    As elsewhere in the ad business, projects are increasingly on ridiculous timelines, and unified, consistent, resource management and process are still works in process. There's a cadre of whiners trying to stifle some of the changes, while letting others shoulder most of the workload. An agency is transition, but transitioning in the right direction.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep pushing, and don't let the bottom 10% of the company drag you back down.

    Pros

    Great Culture- people work really hard but the company rewards with great social events (new hire happy hours, free ice cream during the summer months, trivia nights)

    Cons

    Some Late nights trying to meet deadlines, but I guess that's expected in this industry
