    Pros

    Enormous company with operations in multiple countries and structured meritocracy rewards.
    Competitive bonuses, even for communications professionals.
    Highly qualified team.

    Cons

    Management is too self-centered.
    Bosses sometimes pick the clients' side because of internal politics. That means activities that you know will be unsuccessful are taken forward for fear of contradicting shot-callers.
