    I worked at Cohn & Wolfe for more than a year

    Pros

    Cohn& Wolfe is a great environment to start in as an intern (they call them account coordinators). You can get a lot of good hands on experience

    Cons

    There is absolutely no work-life balance to speak of. In the interview, they mentioned that said that most people worked until 6 but in reality most people in the office dont leave until seven or eight, even the interns

    Advice to Management

    Its great that they give their interns so much experience but they should not be staying until eight every night.

    I have been working at Cohn & Wolfe part-time

    Pros

    Everyone at Cohn & Wolfe works hard...but it's because we are empowered to do great things, for our agency and for our clients. The people here are driven, smart and determined to make an impact.

    Cons

    It's not for the weak. You have to be willing to give 100% at all times and take the initiative to get what you want out of your career. If you do that, the sky is the limit.

    Advice to Management

    Keep an eye out for the quiet superstars and make sure they are getting the recognition they deserve.

    I have been working at Cohn & Wolfe full-time for more than 4 years

    Pros

    Truly a diverse group of people, from the top down, that embraces and encourages a collaborative and healthy work environment.

    Cons

    Too much focus on the numbers and the "black and white" and not enough emphasis on the people who are actually getting the work done. No one enjoys feeling like a commodity.

    Advice to Management

    Recognize and reward the talented individuals who put in the hard work.

    Pros

    Cohn & Wolfe Los Angeles is an incubator for corporate culture. The type of shop that provides the benefits of an international agency, with the integrated feel of a boutique shop. Leadership does a tremendous job of ensuring that everyone has a voice at any level, and that the right support is provided to grow those voices to become future leaders. CWLA gives marketers the opportunity to work on a variety of blue chip...

    Cons

    Hardly a con... but the agency is built on polished hustlers, team that is constantly striving for new business and better results for current clients. Sometimes the pace can become heavy for those that are not up to the challenge. Salary + compensation could be stronger versus competition.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to focus on growing the best in class culture and sharing the bold vision for the firm more widely with the agency

    I have been working at Cohn & Wolfe

    Pros

    It is a small and fun group of people to work with. It is a fun and creative work environment. My work matters and you aren't lost in a system of "big agency" -- it is bigtique!

    Cons

    Everyone works hard, but that is very typical with most agencies. Work-life balance can be challenging. But the difference is that co-workers care about each other.

    Advice to Management

    Hire for growth to avoid burnout. There is a strong core of talent, invest in them and ensure they are growing.

    Pros

    Fun, smart people who genuinely care about each other and their mutual success! Great, hardworking teams and team bonding activities, a growing, diverse client mix, work closely with other CW offices, (ability to tap resources of a big agency, but have a small day-to-day feel), open door policy with senior management. PTO is respected and encouraged.

    Cons

    the nature of agency lends itself to work/life balance issues, but compared to other agencies - it's not a huge issue here.

    Advice to Management

    continue to grow the team, focus on new business that makes sense for the office
