    I have been working at Team One full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    - Nice vacation/ PTO policy
    - Great office
    - Dog firendly
    - Upper management is courteous to other employees
    - Free food, fun at the office

    Cons

    - Compensations in fields that are not Media-specific is not too competitive. Even considering the PTO.
    - Middle managers in some teams don't know what they are doing (No hands-on knowledge, not clear on role, no account-specific knowledge, does not retain knowledge when explained over the course of a quarter)
    - Meaning, to no fault of Team One, you will pretty soon dread going to work
    - BUT since Team One hired that middle manager, it really is kinda their fault

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Know who is valuable and not valuable to the team. Sometimes things just need to get done. Who will do the work if the manager is clueless?
    Fire if necessary. Retain those that you know you won't fire before they decide to leave. Going to work means going to see the boss. (Especially if the boss and employee don't get along. Sadly.) If that boss doesn't know ANYTHING in every objective way and VISIBLY hurts the accounts (and oh yes, sometimes that boss will know less than the newbie who's been only around for months) -- every employee in the right mind will leave for a position where they can learn and grow.

    Pros

    Great benefits. The work/life balance is incredible. This is the best agency to work for if you hate long work days or if you have young children you actually want to see before bedtime.

    Cons

    Very LARGE egos. People will talk and laugh with you in meetings and walk past you with their nose in the air 15 minutes later.
    The turnover is disappointing. I have witnessed very talented creatives leave.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Focus more on team building.

    I worked at Team One as an intern (less than an year)

    Pros

    The atmosphere was extremely fun, open and friendly. Great place to learn about advertising hands-on, especially with the Lexus client. Field office had a lot to offer, although a small office. Good times.

    Cons

    Small office had little room for employees to move up since there were already people in positions to be promoted.

    I worked at Team One full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Great leadership, sense of community, work/life balance. T1 respects employees, nurtures their growth and is a great place to work overall.

    Cons

    Depending on the team you are on and the clients you are working with, it can be challenging to get totally breakthrough ideas sold through. Because T1 and Lexus are so closely aligned and have been doing work together for so long, there can be a tendency for status quo. I've seen this changing in the last few years though, which is promising!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    You are doing a great job! I've seen this agency in different management eras and I can't say enough about how I saw it transform positively while I was there.

    Pros

    work-life balance is best here. lots of office perks. Generous benefits package

    Cons

    Conservative. Lots of legacy employees in upper management positions that never worked anywhere else so they are clueless about best practices.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    recruit management from the outside and get rid of the dead weight managers!

    I worked at Team One

    Pros

    Smaller agency allows deeper integration between all departments. Human resources makes an effort to engage the employees in team building activities.

    Cons

    Because it is primarily a shop for luxury brands, the degree of innovative and creative work that comes out is limited by clients' general conservative demeanors. Minimal internal growth potential because such a small shop.
