    I worked at BBH Global part-time

    Pros

    The company has a fantastic office environment. Everyone is friendly and the work hours are flexible.

    Cons

    The location can be a bit far off since it isn't in Midtown, but this location Downtown would probably be a pro for a lot of people.

    I worked at BBH Global full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    I worked in the LA office and loved the space, people and culture.

    Cons

    You just have to make sure that BBH LA's non-traditional approach to advertising is in line with the kind of work you want to be making.

    I worked at BBH Global full-time

    Pros

    A great agency with great people. A very powerful strategic muscle and some of the smartest people I have ever worked with.

    Cons

    Sometimes a little too smart for their own good, could do with letting the creatives breath a bit more. A nuclear bomb doesn't have to be 100% accurate to work...

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the great work but invest more in leading creative talent to balance out the killer account management and strategy functions.

    I worked at BBH Global full-time

    Pros

    Everyone is very senior level, process is clear and professionalism is very high.

    Cons

    Difficult to clearly describe, but BBH is a great place for some but not others- it's extremely intense. The hours are truly grueling, an AD I worked with regularly clocked in 70 hour work weeks, so if you have any desire for a work/life balance this may not be the place for you.

    Personally, I like having a life outside of work so it wasn't a fit.

    Advice to Management

    The high turnover must be costing the agency a bomb, it would pay to explore why people leave so often.

    Pros

    Great co-workers who were talented at what they did. Fun perks, great teams, and everyone there had great taste.

    Cons

    management felt a little disorganized at times. I never knew how my performance was rated bc there wasn't as much feedback as I would like.

    Advice to Management

    more feedback and guidance from higher management.
