    I have been working at Doner full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    -Coworkers are great. Very down to earth & creative people.
    -Opportunity to work on different projects for many different clients.

    Cons

    I really don't know where to begin... The place is so unorganized, it's a wonder how anything gets accomplished. Employees are overworked, underpaid and unappreciated. I've personally never felt more overlooked and undervalued in my entire life. Deadlines are unreasonable and unrealistic. Good creative never gets to see the light of day due to office politics. Account teams never say "no" to Client, and never fight for good creative. It seems like the new CCO's main objective is to make employees feel less than. Work with no reward. The agency rebranding feels very inauthentic, one might even say it sounds like propaganda "KoolAid." There is a huge diversity problem. The office, which becomes your new home, is bleak, grey and uninspiring.
