    Good Agency, Disappointing Overall Experience

    Jan 31, 2021 - Creative in Detroit, MI

    Business Outlook

    Pros

    -401k match -Huge client -Pay is okay

    Cons

    -No actionable, measurable plan to increase and encourage diversity. During the "Day for Meaning" (McCann WW day to discuss diversity, feedback, overall agency improvement) several people made jokes and scoffed the entire time when race or pronouns were brought up. -Extremely understaffed, which has also created unrealistic expectations for employees who are not compensated appropriately for the enormous amount of work they are asked to do -Management does not communicate with agency at large very often about client-related business, agency outlook, etc. -Little/no room for growth (specifically for assistants/juniors) -Nature of the agency/client relationship has created a toxic and unrealistic work/life balance for many employees -"Boys club" that is very difficult to break into within the creative department

    Pros

    Really good people to work with. All with a common goal of producing great work.

    Cons

    Annual review process not consistent. I didn't get a review in the 5 years I was there which I believe affected my ability to get a raise.

    They care about the employees and want to make sure everyone is comfortable.

    Where there was once potential is now a black hole

    Mar 18, 2020 - Art Director in Detroit, MI
    Recommend
    CEO Approval
    Business Outlook

    Pros

    Good benefits and PTO package. Talented creatives.

    Cons

    VERY top heavy which results in way too many cooks in the kitchen. And by top of heavy I mean lots of white male management and egos. Lacks diversity. Every brief you receive will suck and the office space itself is depressing. As far as the creative work, ideas regularly disappear into the ether without anyone keeping you in the loop. Lots of talent here and amazing ideas coming to the table, but the work that actually gets produced with a budget behind it is mediocre.

    Fun company, low pay.

    Pros

    Great culture and work atmosphere. Your coworkers always become family. Fun account.

    Cons

    Working your way up doesn't come with a lot of pay, unless you can play the game. But I feel this is advertising as a whole.
