    Pros

    Flexible and understanding with a great opportunity for continued growth and access to mentors.

    Flexible PTO
    Company-wide updates to know/understand how the overall business is going
    Some 401K match

    Cons

    Have to be ready for a faster pace, clients changing their minds, directors changing their vision, etc. You have to be ready to flow with it and rework things often.

    Advice to Management

    Different teams operate differently, make sure one vision is aligned and everyone's work is well appreciated.

    Pros

    Amazing group of people that have a passion for clients and the business. Used to have a great culture and Sr Management really tries hard to keep it -- they truly care

    Cons

    Purchased by Epsilon a few years back and it has been a struggle to get the right resources as a result we are not able to service our clients at the same level.

    Advice to Management

    Try to work together to come up with the right solutions for clients and the teams. Work hard to grow organic talent.

    Pros

    Culture varies by office, but overall a well managed company that values employees. Interesting work, good work life balance (most of the time). Minneapolis has a great office space. Good benefits for a company of this size.

    Cons

    Normal ad agency stuff: clients come and go and there is always some uncertainty, but leadership makes every attempt to find a home for everyone on a new account when one leaves.
