    Pros

    Strong clients and casual atmosphere

    Small team, limited resources, under-qualified management. Unstable company, ended up closing media division on very short notice.

    Pros

    My favorite thing about being part of DBA is the trust placed on each person to get the job done. DBA is a company filled with reliable and relentless workers, which creates plenty of opportunity to celebrate agency victories.

    Cons

    DBA is fast paced. So this environment may not be for everyone. A successful team member is a resilient one.

    Pros

    DBA is a team oriented agency that encourages creative thinking and praises hard work.

    Cons

    Agency life isn't for everyone. No 401K match.

    Advice to Management

    More perks (and hugs) for junior staff.

    Pros

    There are very few pros - and I'm sure many people would say working with cool clients in the fashion industry and some of the perks that go along with it would be one of them. All of that loses it's luster after a while though when you're burnt out, and that stuff isn't as "cool" anymore.

    Cons

    No, NONE, zilch, ZERO work life balance here. You are expected to work into the late hours, come in early, and work on the weekends sometimes. It is ridiculous. The main problem is clients are promised things that are NOT possible with the small team that is DBA. Morale is also ALWAYS low and the top people are into micro-managing and then taking the credit for work they didn't do. Plain and simple it's a factory that runs it's workers into the ground.

    Advice to Management

    Get a grip, and stop over promising when YOU AREN'T THE ONES DOING THE WORK. Also, up your salaries. We

    Pros

    very creative atmosphere that's hands on with well known clients. you get to do everything from managing social channels for millions of fans, doing instagram photo shoots, creating massive brand campaigns and working with great budgets to watch your ideas come to life. everything you do is measurable, so you can see the value in your work.

    Cons

    like all fashion jobs, it's a lot of work and long hours. not everyone's willing to put in what's needed to get the job done at times. insurance is kinda expensive and they dont match 401k.

    Advice to Management

    hire more staff
