    Pros

    Strong performance culture based on rock solid core values and single-minded vision. Creative/client service/strategy/media/technology all matter. All levels of management held accountable for company performance and employee development.

    Cons

    It takes time to hire really great people, so positions can be open for awhile.

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing what your doing and hold everyone accountable to practice what you/they preach

    Top clients and brands, good benefits (birthday off, off between xmas and new years, 401 K match, etc), increasing focus on people and their development as well as creative

    Slow to recruit for key positions and some of the clients are too conservative

    Advice to Management

    Don't just talk about the focus on growing people, see it through

    Pros

    Great people! Good Management! Typical fun loving NY style atmosphere. Benefits are good, especially the matching 401k. Summer Fridays and Christmas holidays are plus. :-)

    Cons

    None. Lots of people love to stay for a long time within the company due to it's great culture. In fact I have seen employees who left for some reason come back again.

    Advice to Management

    Management is great! I worked in IT department. They do adapt to and use latest tools and technologies. People who stayed long with the company expect to get promoted and move up in their area. That's the only thing I would like to mention. Else, I think it's one of the best Ad agency in the US or rather world!

    Pros

    There's plenty of room to grow. Team works really well together. Benefits are good, especially the matching 401k.

    Cons

    Work-Live balance uneven, lots of late nights. Too much focus on process that caused bottlenecks in routing and making the deadlines established.

    Advice to Management

    Need to establish some flexibility on the process. Use it as a guideline and do not penalize those who work around the guidelines to meet client goals and expectations.

    Pros

    Great talent; great clients and brands. Resilient in the face of much change over last few years.

    Cons

    Princeton Culture is under attack; new leadership focused on $ vs the great creative we were once known for.

    Advice to Management

    If you (let your young talented and creative) build it, clients (and $) will come.
