    I worked at Allen & Gerritsen full-time

    Pros

    They are a well established agency with decent perks like a roof deck and summer fridays. Great location in Center City. Beneficial for a young person trying to start their career. Tons of promotions if you are likable enough to become an "insider". They have a meeting once a month to go over what is going on within the agency. They have a social clique called the "allies" that are there to help the newbies.

    Cons

    Extremely long hours. Horrible work-life balance. Brutally cliquey amongst coworkers. Mediocre accounts resulting in mediocre work to pay the bills. A huge disconnect between the Boston and Philly offices. HR is spiteful and condescending. High turnover rate. The office itself is pretty corporate. Stodgy cubicles and office chairs, grey tiled rugs and 50's reggae music...

    Advice to Management

    Get a new HR department. Become more transparent throughout the agency. Stop trying to be perceived as being "cultured" and allow your work to speak for itself. Value your hard working employees to keep them around.

    I worked at Allen & Gerritsen for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Fantastic people that are fun to be with and learn from, great mentorship program, exciting to see and do new things, helpful management and open-door policy with CEO. Almost always extra food/drink lying around.

    Cons

    Still some lasting tensions with acquired Philly office caused by strange reporting structures across offices, new business hasn't been won in a while and seems out of touch with what the rest of the agency does, strategy team is a GODDAMN DISASTER thanks to some incompetent leadership across offices. Branded entertainment division is a confusing, profitless over-investment of...

    Advice to Management

    Bridge the gap between new business and creative - they're pitching stuff that they're not excited about. Stop being so concerned with being a cool place to work and actually make it a place to WORK.
