    I worked at Deutsch full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Decent benefits, “unlimited PTO”, pretty nice co workers, consistent guest speakers and workshops

    Cons

    Disorganized, poor leadership, feigned attempts to promote “diversity”, no budget for new tools/technology, horrible work/life balance (everyone left is stretch paper thin), crap communication and constant rotation of people with layoffs and people quitting.

    Advice to Management

    Get your leadership situation fixed yesterday and find people who will bring new business in or get rid of the people who aren’t. Focus on growing digital.

    I worked at Deutsch full-time

    Pros

    Unlimited PTO and that is all

    Cons

    Pay is ridiculously low, very high turnover, no job growth, extremely dull working environment

    Advice to Management

    Pay liveable wages, don't purchase buildings you clearly can't afford while also threatening layoffs, provide clear tracks for job growth, too many senior employees with useless titles who do nothing- get rid of them

    Pros

    Dogs in the office
    Free snacks - which aren't that great

    Cons

    - Very cliquey - it's quite evident who are the agency stars, while the backbone of the agency (usually entry-level or 2nd year positions) hustle to get work done.
    - Upper Management has no idea what they're doing
    - We lose business and then the agency acts like nothing ever happened
    - Don't promote from within

    Advice to Management

    Promote from within and help your current employees grow. During the hiring process perhaps find people who know what they're talking about, I've sat in way too many meetings where entry-level individuals know way more about their accounts and processes than their bosses. That's just embarrassing.

    Get more social and digital opportunities or risk going no where.

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

    Pros

    A lot of nice people work there. Pretty organized.

    Cons

    Almost impossible to produce good creative work. Clients are allowed to change the work until it barely resembles the original idea. Lots of hours are demanded of the creatives. You'll have no life outside of work.

    Advice to Management

    Need better leadership. Agency's are only as good, and creative, as their leaders, both in the creative dept and account dept.
