    Great people to work with, management tries to understand employee concerns and improves upon feedback

    Low salary ... I like everything else about the company

    Not very creative work, owned by Ogilvy/WPP so it's hard to get a raise, timesheets (like everywhere)

    Recurring campaigns can create monotony.

    Recognize more of the cogs doing the hard work every day than just the same group again and again.

    Work life is a challenge

    Keep up the great dialogue with employees. A culture that treats people like people.

    Pros

    Great atmosphere, great teams. Focus on hiring quality candidates.

    Cons

    Slow company growth, not enough opportunities for advancement. Imbalance of work done to recognition earned. Salary increases are always slow, small, and delayed. Sub-par employees are not dealt with in any efficient manner.

    Pros

    Great people, fun atmosphere, sometimes.

    Cons

    They are quick to have layoffs when business slows down? It's probably because they are owned by a huge corporation that justs looks at numbers, not people.

    Pros

    Great people that truly care about their colleagues. Experts in their fields and willing to share information. Management and HR are interested in and willing to tailor your environment to suit your style and needs.

    Cons

    Not really a downside, but given the opportunity to work directly with their large-cap clients and the clients' respective big data, there are security policies and other client requirement hurdles that must be endured.
