    I have been working at Colle+McVoy (More than a year)

    Pros

    Love the people here, these are connections I will continue to foster for a very long time. Work perks are great, too! Rooftop patio, free beer, summer hours, the list goes on.

    Cons

    A lot of accounts are strictly executional, churn and burn. In addition, a lot of accounts are conservative - lack of creative freedom and exploration.

    Pros

    This is a super chill agency to work for. People are great. Everyone is so nice and willing to help out. There is no room for big egos here. Super organized compared to other agencies.

    Cons

    A lot of the clients are needy and kill creative. It would be great to see some fun clients on a national level.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the great work with culture and work/life balance. Push hard to pitch global brands.

    I have been working at Colle+McVoy full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    The people make this place amazing. The culture can't be beat and the lack of egos is refreshing. The space is refreshing and open. You'll do (mostly) solid work here and you'll be able to still see your family at the end of the day.

    Cons

    Besides a few accounts with "cool" factor (but usually small budgets), a lot of revenue comes from agricultural clients. They're not always willing to push the envelope so sometimes it's hard to make amazing work.
