    I worked at Campbell Ewald full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Solid experience for a first job out of college. My teammates and direct supervisors were fantastic! They always maintained a very positive and supportive environment, which encouraged me to keep learning and expanding my skillset.

    Cons

    Even for an entry level position, the pay was lower than average.

    Advice to Management

    Make it a point to request honest and constructive feedback from your employees, and try to address and improve issues up front.

    I worked at Campbell Ewald full-time (More than 3 years)

    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.

    Cons

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

    Meet with all teams to see what resources they might be lacking in and how to help.

    Pros

    The work is busy, great people and awesome space to work in. Fun activities as well, lots of trainings and cultural sessions to attend.

    I worked at Campbell Ewald full-time

    Pros

    The employees make CE a great place to work because they create a down-to-earth, family vibe. If you work hard and prove yourself, you can be promoted quickly. Can learn horizontally. Leaner teams provide access to directors and senior leaders. Lots of opportunity to help on new business. The company has potential to be great... if they don’t let clients or drama get in the way.

    Cons

    For LA specifically, the head of the office did very little to build or contribute to the culture in any structured way. (The other senior leaders, however were great .) All-staff meetings were often cancelled and other transparent or visionary communications rarely happened. I agree with the previous post that there is a fear based culture. Agency could do with some sexier clients. Depending on direct manager, mentorship is either great or non-existent.

    Advice to Management

    Walk the walk. If you say you’re a flat organization, be one. Behaving in a top-down manner when you’ve made promises that you’re not is really disappointing. Invest in your people - then they won’t leave.
