    I worked at C-K full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    The people at C-K are really great colleagues. It's a positive, fun environment. C-K's leadership team is very strong and they have some amazing clients like Porsche, Cedar Fair, Corona, Edward Jones, Nikon, etc. I enjoyed working at C-K. Really wonderful people and a very positive corporate culture. It's a good place to start a career or to move to as an experienced hire.

    Cons

    None specific to C-K. The bigger question is always whether to stay in the agency world or go client side.
