    I worked at J. Walter Thompson Worldwide full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Very smart people. Low ego - work toward the best solution without “my way” being the only way. Talent to back up the ideas and produce great work

    Cons

    The ever decreasing size of the office put pressure and tension into the air on a daily basis. Thus, the focus was on “the new team” brought in to turn things around.
