      Pros

      Great people, great atmosphere. Dog friendly.

      Cons

      Pending on your team, especially if you are creative. Hours can be long. Mine are fine, so if you end up in research it's not something you need to worry about.

      Smart Employees | Not Amazing Accounts

      Pros

      Deutsch really fosters a positive atmosphere and desire to do great work. The people all communicate effectively and try to help each other out the best they can. Work life balance is also great (half of the time)

      Cons

      However, with so much focus on gaining new business, there's a tendency to move attention away from loyal, stable accounts. There's also a definite hierarchy across departments that is not only implicit but actively promoted. Pay is also very imbalanced compared to workload (especially for Account Management members)

      Good place but bad management - cheap.

      Pros

      There is a nice vibe there. Fun place. Everyone is really positive.

      Cons

      Really bad communication between management and the staff. I'd see a lot of frustration on the teams because no one really knew what was going on and had to "pretend they did" at the risk of looking like they didn't know what they were doing. People didn't talk to each other. It was like everything was a big secret. They would only talk to the managers about a job and the managers would assume that everyone else knew what the the deal was, the person would be like There was a very hierarchical feel like you could not approach certain people because they too important. For such a small company it was surprising to see that many "divas".

      Good culture. Sad executions

      Business Outlook

      Pros

      - Deutsch hires a lot of genuinely nice, well meaning people - Some mentorship from older creatives - My work life balance was fine, but that was because they were losing clients

      Cons

      - Top heavy with little room for advancement. I saw creative teams busting their butts for years without a promotion or a raise - Average or below average pay - Despite employing many genuinely creative people, time after time the actual execution of the work is sad and unimpressive - I think the chief NY creative should be much more involved

      Pros

      The staff, maintenance, operations, mailroom are all kind people Coffee bar, snacks Unlimited PTO They seem to treat moms well

      Cons

      Mediocre expectations: too many people in leadership roles who haven’t perfected their own craft. Their expectations for good work are low and they aren’t able to teach more. More interested in collecting titles. In general, leadership doesn’t have great taste. No culture. When there isn’t a crafted culture, the culture becomes about hierarchy, sucking up, collecting titles and greed. If you don’t subscribe to that, then keep your head down. Rocking the boat and demanding change is taboo. Managers see rising stars as competition, a select group of people in each department are enabled and empowered. Managers brag about their salaries and bonuses openly and give sparse, low raises - money is always an issue, some people have it and others don’t. No real inclusion. People of color are either tokenized or expected to conform. A lot of lip service paid to diversity, there was even a training about it but when it comes to putting it into action, people would rather not. It’s a really tiring place to be as a POC or as a nom-American, no real global perspective. Heard too many people call it a “boys club” yet complicit to it. If you speak out on it, they will find a solution, but the perpetrator will not be reprimanded.
