      - Great people - they're friendly and nice. As an intern, they gave me some good advice and I got some good connections out of the time I spent there. - The company does some great work in the advertising industry. - Good work environment and convenient location.

      Cons

      Huge company so obviously you don't get to meet a lot of the people who are involved in the company.
