    I worked at Campbell Ewald full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Major clients, fixture in the detroit ad community.

    Cons

    Not a diverse place, the racism and sexism ranges from subtle to out right gross.

    Advice to Management

    I never worked there under the current regime, but you can't claim Detroit without hiring people of color from Detroit. An ad agency's creative department mirrors their values. If it's all white and male, that's a damning statement. And nobody has forgotten "Ghetto Day."

    Pros

    1. Amazing, fun, and positive culture!
    2. Most teams are collaborative to help each other
    3. People are willing to teach, if you’re willing to learn
    4. Account management track is quick to move up

    Cons

    1. Pay is subpar at best....

    Advice to Management

    Please pay your level employees a bit more, especially the lower level ones. You lose great talent if they can’t afford to learn, grow, and pay their bills at the same time.

    Pros

    I was fortunate to have great mentors who turned out to be even better friends. I enjoyed coming into work everyday. My direct manager allowed me to experiment in my work and push boundaries and creativity.

    The work is the work. It wasn't always the most glamorous stuff, but that's pretty much the norm in Detroit.
