    Good entry-level experience

    Aug 22, 2016 - Project Consultant in Washington, DC
    Recommend
    CEO Approval
    Business Outlook

    Pros

    - Great experience & great resume addition - Creativity is encouraged, with people from all levels often solicited in brainstorms - Teamwork is a big focus, but so is independent work and you often get to “own” projects - A lot of the design work is done in-house, even video & motiongraphics - Opportunities for promotions are regular (entry-level) - High-level client portfolio means big budgets and interesting projects

    Cons

    - Large organization with all the bureaucracy that comes with it (rounds of validation, endless meetings, procedures, etc.) - A lot of overtime work & sometimes weekend work - NOT compensated - Clients tend to be large corporations with a lot of internal policies, which can delay developments & limit creative possibilities - Internal communications is not the best - a lot of rumors, last-minute departure announcements, etc. - Very high turnover means the colleagues you work with change frequently - Low salaries for entry-level positions (can make it hard to pay the rent in big cities) - Not enough of a focus on innovation (from the technology & softwares used in the office to the solutions offered to clients)

    Great learning experience, but not for the young and ambitious

    May 15, 2015 - Project Consultant in Washington, DC

    Business Outlook

    Pros

    This is an absolutely top-notch agency. The clients you'll be able to put on your resume are unbeatable, and as an entry level employee I gained access to projects and team members that can't be beat.

    Cons

    It is a very hierarchal company. Junior staff is expected to do remedial and entry level work, and only that. Even if someone is ambitious, talented, and has great ideas - that's often not encouraged and in fact seen as a negative since it threatens more senior staff or is interpreted as being unreliable.
