  1. "Beautiful, lax office"

    I have been working at BBDO Atlanta full-time

    Pros

    It's a beautiful office with a wonderful view of Buckhead. The atmosphere is very open and there's a lot of energy here. If you want to get into the ad industry, this is the place to be.

    Cons

    People can get distracted a lot since it's an open office. Also, people don't take the rules as seriously as they should.
