    Pros

    Creative culture, progressive independent agency, Bagel Friday, Kombucha on tap, do I need to say more?

    Not just at BSSP but in general, advertising can be long hours. It goes with the trade.

    Pros

    Very intelligent & fun employees. Family type feel in the office. I think they hire great people. And the executives are relatable, sincere, & smart

    Cons

    Work/life balance & pay. I suppose it's par for the course for an advertising agency but the hours people work are quite long all the time & the pay is low low low. Good thing the people are fun to work with. I felt like the starting salaries for an AMP & they MP were abysmal but it also could be par for the course in advertising

    Advice to Management

    Thank you management! Love how familial it feels there. Overall, working at BSSP was a true positive & I encourage others to apply there

    Pros

    Great people, management and client work. Those who are self starters and prove their worth to management will succeed and enjoy it here.

    Cons

    Depending on the client, hours can be long and unpredictable. If you're not one of the leaders who gets recognized by management you may feel lost and frustrated. Turnover can be high.

    Advice to Management

    Agency turnover is always high, and while some lack of structure and red tape is the norm, any employee can benefit from a more robust self development and career track that makes them feel like the company is invested in their long term growth.
