I have been working at SS+K full-time
Great variety of clients and projects. No big egos. A true willingness to help and advise -- if you seek help and advice. Independent, self-starting environment. Involvement of executives in all aspects of accounts and projects. Friendly, welcoming, and talented agency culture. Overall, an agency that is good at lots of different marketing/advertising areas -- strategy, creative, etc.
Sometimes there's a shortage of resources, especially in creative and production, for the amount of work. Lack of project management role and department means account team needs to handle project management -- which can sometimes mean micromanagement of various departments and tons of follow-up.
Advice to Management
Continue to bring on broader, longer contracts with clients. Expand creative talent by recruiting more folks. With new office space, continue to foster agency culture.
I applied through other source. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at SS+K (New York, NY) in February 2014.
I was hired through a friend. There were a number of interviews with senior management and also a negotiation process. It was a thoughtful and meaningful process for both parties.
Only a week or so. They were very reasonable and honest - a positive experience.
