    I worked at Doner (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Fun culture. Some good people. Nice offices. Used to be very successful privately-owned agency.

    Cons

    Old ad age thinking. Not as current as could be. Leadership could plan time better rather than pulling long hours right before presentations. Should still spend time and effort going above and beyond for large clients rather than taking them for granted.

    Advice to Management

    Cultivate and reward the fresh talent that has come in the door. Too many really great people that could have transformed the agency left due to poor compensation and/or dated thinking where their talents and knowledge of cutting edge advertising/marketing were stifled.
