    I worked at TBWA Worldwide as an intern (less than an year)

    Pros

    I like working with my team together. They all have European culture background. My colleagues are open to culture diversity and willing to learn from each other's cultures.

    Cons

    I can't think of any cons right now. All are wonderful.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    It would be great if interns could receive payment, because poor students are struggling with loan burdens and high living cost in New York.

    I worked at TBWA Worldwide

    Pros

    The clients are legendary, the atmosphere is creative and pet-friendly, the benefits are substantial, and the work often excels. The challenges come quick and often.

    Cons

    The sheer size can often mean quick turnaround, as clients come and go, late hours getting creative to be just right, and on time; one has to be proactive even amid the hectic schedule to keep the work high, which is not easy.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Always figure the challenges before submitting expectations to clients; even the most rigid programmer there is a creative at heart and can smooth a lot of tough issues.
