    I worked at Crispin Porter as an intern (Less than a year)

    Pros

    - The people are fun, hard-working, love food, and make beautiful ads
    - You get to jump in and the work you do as an intern is actually used in client presentations
    - They pay you for overtime work, so even though you may work some crazy hours, you're compensated for that

    Cons

    - The advertising world is so in flux that at the end of the internship it was very unsure whether or not you would get hired. But that's the nature of the industry!

    I worked at Crispin Porter full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    I worked at CPB for almost 8 years. It had changed dramatically over that time. Pros are it is a creative, casual place to work. Most of the people are great.

    Cons

    It is more corporate and the "soul" of the company has been lost. Hopefully new management is working to restore some of what made CPB so great. Management is getting rid of a lot of long-tenured employees.

    Advice to Management

    Hopefully new management is working to restore some of what made CPB so great.

    Fun place to work. Lots of interesting smart people who were passionate about advertising.

    Pros

    Best agency in Miami. Known for creativity and portfolio of clients. Talented group of people and awesome offices with a large kitchen with 24/7 breakfast and a gym with a trainer.

    Cons

    Long hours. No windows so you wouldn't be able to tell if it's day or night. People say there are showed so that people that stay overnight can get refreshed.

    Advice to Management

    Management was awesome. I was there after bogusky left but everybody still talked about him. I love top management but a lot of people have left or had to leave so not sure how good or stable management is nowadays.

    Pros

    Unlike other agencies, you don't work as interns here. If you work hard you get awesome pieces for your book

    Cons

    crazy working hours and very poor work/life balance. It has a reason why it's called a sweat shop.

    Advice to Management

    Sometimes there are miscommunication between seniors and juniors, and between account mangers and creatives.

    Pros

    Big resume builder which is great when you're starting out. Fun activities and culture overall. A good way to get a sense for advertising.

    Cons

    Will drop you in a second. There is absolutely no loyalty. Very cliquey, feel alike high school. Creative Directors here are especially rude and entitled. Management has no idea what they're doing.

    Advice to Management

    Have some loyalty to your people. Enforce a life/work balance, don't just talk about it and pretend omelets or a beer cart will suffice. Your'e dealing with adults, not children. The bribing is transparent.
