    It's advertising, the way you assume it will be.

    ProsWorking at a large agency has a concrete set of benefits - large company infrastructure, great IT department, an HR department that will answer questions quickly, and enough employees that a sick day can be taken without work piling up on top of you upon your return.

    ConsHowever, its agency life, and therefore the hours are long, demanding, and there is not a lot of respect from the middle management level to the upper management level about the balance between home and work life. There's a lot of lip service paid to the idea of balance, but in the end, your ass needs to be in your chair for the unfortunately common 50+ hour weeks, late nights, and weekends. Client first, employee sanity second.

    Advice to Senior ManagementMore structure in the review process, more than lip service paid to the idea of balancing workload, client expectations, and coming to realistic terms with the fact that not every job in the world of marketing is a home run, nor should that level of effort be expected at every turn.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
