    Pros

    The culture at CP+B Boulder is out of this world! They do their best to make work a positive experience. The work is creatively driven and the people who work here are incredibly talented.

    Cons

    I didn't personally experience this but I know that people work long hours and life and work can seep together.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the great work in terms of culture!

    I worked at Crispin Porter full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Mostly awesome people here working "the factory" floor until you get up to C-suite level leadership, great "amenities" like fully stocked kitchen, summer Fridays, all-agency fun days, etc.

    Cons

    Patchwork of egos and philosophies from CP+B heyday-ers and other "heralded" agencies, award-chasing creatives driving the circus car to the neglect of actual client business objectives, strategists and account people kowtowing to CDs/ECDs and then getting roasted by clients creating maddening swirl and confusion, low pay, long hours expected (depending on account)

    Advice to Management

    "Creating the most talked about work in the world" is a flawed mission – getting people talking is an ends of good work – not a means
