    I worked at Agency.com full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Great people, client and management. I wish it lasted longer. Am sorry to see Agency.com go!

    Cons

    Foosball gets crowded sometimes. I don't believe they had ping-pong, or does my memory fail me?

    Advice to Management

    Join us more often for foosball. Have more reunions.

    Pros

    They offer medical insurance..... but there's Obama care these days....

    Cons

    Air conditioning never works, senior management is too busy with internal politics to care about providing leadership

    Advice to Management

    Pay attention to what is happening at the company.

    Pros

    My time at Agency.com was short, but sweet! It was during the Internet Bubble and was a sign of the times. Twelve companies were rolled up into one global organization. Needless to say the pace was exhausting and the traction slim but it was fun and I'm glad I did it. Made a lot of friends who I still have today.

    Cons

    It was a "Roll-up" so there were many conflicting agendas all going on at the same time. Chan provided superior direction though and Kevin Rowe was a Superstar. I have great respect for them both.

    Pros

    Fun, active atmosphere. Knowledgeable people. Good benefits. Nurtured creative spirit. It was fund to come into work everyday with the team that was there.

    Cons

    Mismanagement from NY office. Inflated numbers led to layoffs every year. Work could get monotonous. Good ideas were always encourage but rarely sold through.

    Advice to Management

    It's a shame you let the Agency.com name die. Many people have a left the agency with a negative view.

    I worked at Agency.com full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Some of the best talent anywhere. Inventive, outside-of-the-box creative thinking, but shallow on execution and follow-through. Solid tech creds from IT through app development.

    Cons

    Like to bet it all on creative without an actual plan to execute. Operationally and bottom-line focused (which is necessary and good), but in the wrong ways.

    Advice to Management

    Step outside the creative bubble once in a while to see the other opportunities presented to you.

    Pros

    Great people who really "get it"
    Good client list
    Friendly staff

    Cons

    Hadn't done any big web builds in a long time - more work was on their online ads
    Staff turnover
    Structure of roles means account directors and below are not expected to do any strategic thinking

    Advice to Management

    Make sure some of the more aggressive personalities aren't a turn-off for everyone else...including clients
