    Create places a lot of value on growing the company from within, so if you start in an entry level position, they will do everything to train you well and help you grow within the company.

    I worked at Create Advertising Group full-time

    Pros

    You do learn a lot on the job. Get to work on some great reel worthy projects. Met some amazing people there. Dog friendly. Kitchen.

    Cons

    There isn't a sense of urgency for growth. They don't pay you what your actual value is to the company. Long hours no matter what day it is/holiday. Vacation days are hard to come by.

    Advice to Management

    Reward and acknowledge the people who actually deserve it. Have a better employment balance so everyone's workload isn't constantly overloaded.

    I worked at Create Advertising Group for less than a year

    Pros

    fun socials, good lunches, friendly people, dog friendly. if you are an editor, you are God.

    Cons

    demanding, treats anyone who is not an editor terribly. very little work life balance if you are not an editor.

    Advice to Management

    management all have different personalities. some are fun, some are very demanding. decide on what office culture you guys want and work together. different parts of management want different things. treat staff equally. stop sending people to do personal errands like taking your dog to the groomers.

    I worked at Create Advertising Group for less than a year

    Pros

    Free lunches Benefits If your a creative or producer and you're friends with upper management it's great.

    Cons

    High turn over in admin roles. Upper management is mainly concerned with their image to clients and not about the bottom level employees who do all the work to keep everything running. Other employees often looked stressed out, constantly going out for a walk. Upper management think interns and production assistants are slaves, sending them out to wash cars, take dogs for walks and vet visits, taking kids to basketball...

    Advice to Management

    I truly hope things have turned around. They do great work and that's great for the clients, not so much for other staff who were under appreciated. Check your egos. You're not the only company with high profile clients in major studios and other companies foster a much more supportive environment for the bottom roles.
