    Pros

    Tons of opportunity to grow, learn, and manage a team. Very fun, intelligent working environment

    Cons

    There are a ton of structural issues with the office, HR, and with some other logistical elements of the office. These take a lot of time to resolve - time I'd rather spend working on the really fun/exciting projects going on at TMK.

    Advice to Management

    Button up the logistics and you'll be on the right track.

    Pros

    I've worked at The Media Kitchen for almost 4 years and I can honestly say it has been one of the best experiences of my media career. If you are looking for a place that has creativity, innovation, and filled with nice people - this is it. The Employees: Have been trained to be humble, not take advantage of the industry, want a career in media - not just a job. The Senior Management: Encourage you to grow and push for success. The Relationships: Media Kitchen has become a family to me. There is a reason why media partners say Media Kitchen employees are some of the best/ most appreciative to work with.

    Cons

    It is a small agency - if you are a slacker or want people to pick up work for you.... this is not the place for you. (I think this is really a pro and allows you to show your talent...)

    Pros

    People are generally nice and very smart (the top 2 criteria you need to get the job). The culture is extremely cliquey, so for those of you coming right out of college, this is a good transition.

    Cons

    I give many props to "Chief Truth Officer". I couldn't have said it better myself.
