    I worked at Admerasia full-time

    Pros

    - People are very nice and friendly, you do have a sense of you having a family at work - You feel respected and heard in this multicultural agency

    Cons

    - Clients are not always right and I hope leaders in the company have the grit and gut to advise cilents otherwise, if they don't believe something is right - There's a lack of vision to drive the company forward. It often times feels extremely complacent

    Advice to Management

    - Admerasia hires many fresh out of college graduate students. I'd advise management to continue to inspire, motivate young employees into doing things that they love - Empower your employees to make changes they wish to see in the workplace, enable middle management team to be more accountable vs. top down management - For the long term, craft a vision you believe in and be hungry to want more

      Pros

      -Overall laid-back office atmosphere -Opportunities to work on other agency functions beyond your role -Presence of some current intelligent, forward-thinking employees -The agency is well known in the Asian-American ad industry -Leadership recognizes competent subordinates and heavily involves them in key decisions

      Cons

      -Office bullies. Several individuals in the agency are downright malicious and takes pleasure in abusing their subordinates. What's worse is a couple of them are in key leadership positions. The existence of these people makes working with them feel like you're constantly on a battleground -Extremely incompetent new hires which makes you seriously question the leadership's thought processes and standards -Salary...

      Advice to Management

      -Establish a proper HR system and implement a comprehensive agency leadership evaluation to straighten up those bullies. Let them go if they are not willing to change. Competence doesn't have to be tied with malice -Put more effort in deciding who gets hired. And when someone gets hired, please train them properly with diligence and don't just throw them against the wall and see if they stick -Put in a modern...

        No opinion of CEO

        I have been working at Admerasia full-time for more than 5 years

        Pros

        Shallow hierarchy means you can get face time with bosses, and learn quickly from all departments. Family style working environment is very friendly and relaxed during lunch. People bring their lunch boxes and microwave them, eating together in the kitchen or common areas.

        Cons

        Leadership is fragmented and unschooled in industry digital standards. Overloaded with work and underpaid.

        Advice to Management

        Pay more to the people who are valuable to the company and do the actual work. Be more conscientious of new hires. Don't hire incompetent people. Make your subordinates feel that you've 'got their back', and will not throw them onto the train tracks at the first sign of a wreck.

          I worked at Admerasia

          Pros

          The working environment is very dynamic, which inspires creativities. The office has amazing decoration and I love the people there. Obviously they have very low turnover rate.

          Cons

          Since I was there for only a summer, I don't really sense any downside.
