    I worked at AdAsia Communications full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Top clients for Asian American market. Provide you best training from ATL to BTL, client service, media to production. All ad campaign deliver on-strategy with innovated creative. Truly as one top leader in Asian advertising industry.

    Cons

    Office is nice, but located in Englewood Cliffs, NJ. For New York residents, you could take company shuttle. However, you may be sit in traffic for a while.

    Pros

    Great place for entry-level and starting in the business. You have the opportunity to learn a lot and have experienced team members who are willing to guide you or help you out.

    Cons

    Since the culture is primarily Asian, there is a difficulty in adjusting to the culture.

    Pros

    Solid culture, with great people. They have some good accounts and everyone is very helpful getting you on your feet. It's the prefect entry-level job into the advertising industry

    Cons

    After a year you realize theres not much room for growth and the accounts are great, but you start to realize it's very lacking in diversity.

    Advice to Management

    Try to give juniors more of a chance and cut back on dead weight employees. It's clear something are not working and the people who are suppose to fix it, are not performing.

    Pros

    Friendly work environment that had a healthy work life balance. Management did what they could to encourage growth and always searched for opportunities to promote within.

    Cons

    Small company that makes growth somewhat difficult. Internal processes could be fine tuned in order to maximize efficiency and workflow.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to search for different opportunities as an agency so that your scope of work can grow into a bigger market. Don't be afraid to learn new things and step out of comfort zones.

    I worked at AdAsia Communications full-time

    Pros

    Big office and Clean bathroom always had toilet paper... thats it

    Cons

    Long day, little pay. Management needs improve people skills. A lot of backstabbing. No opportunities to grow and they lie about somethings. They know how to use visa as advantage to control employees. Everyone is scared and very strict environment. Not an agency setting at all.

    Advice to Management

    Respect and trust people. Some juniors are very talented but doesn't get credit for hard work. Get better work environment because people there are unhappy and keep leaving.

    "It was not a pleasant experience"

    Current Employee - Anonymous Employee

    Pros

    The main accounts were great. Clients were a pleasure to work with.

    Cons

    They treated ppl differently on a case by case basis. There was favoritism. It was all about perception on how mgmt saw u. Very strict rules, or get pay docked if more than x times late in a pay period. They try to screw with your vacay days. You had fight for your rights for certain benefits

    Advice to Management

    Please try to treat ppl fairly and retain good ppl. Mgmt is run by arrogant leaders who need to be coached.

    I worked at AdAsia Communications full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Couldn't ask for better clients! Beautiful office. Visa sponsorship. The owner is a true entrepreneur who has brought rapid growth to the agency over the years. Everyone is generally nice and friendly. Some very smart and professional people. The agency is trying everything they can to turn digital - a precious effort in the Asian agency business.

    Cons

    Base salary is not competitive at all. Horrible work life balance for many people. Some lazy and dumb managers. Very stict with vacations or personal days off.

    Advice to Management

    Talk to junior staff more. There are talented people who work really hard but are paid pathetically. Think of some incentives to show you actually trust your employees and for people to be even more motivated, like, more flexibility with time off, sick leaves, early leaves etc.
