    I have been working at Digital Brand Architects full-time (More than a year)

    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

    Pros

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

    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

    I have worked at DBA for several years and have consistently seen the agency expand into new verticals, seize entrepreneurial opportunities and increase staffing. They also hire and promote from within and foster personal and professional growth. Plus they represent best in class talent and work on exciting, industry-changing deals and projects.

    Cons

    The agency had a mismanaged media division that thankfully is no longer active. Talent management and all the offshoots thereof are propelling the agency forward.

    Advice to Management

    Better communication, though improving.

    Pros

    As my one-year anniversary is approaching with DBA I decided to post my review a few weeks earlier. This is my second company that I worked for that would be considered a start up entrepreneurial spirit environment. I had my hesitation at first about work –life balance but I truly believe this has been one of the best decisions for my career. I am constantly challenged with my position, I am working with some the most creative people in this industry, I am in a work environment where my opinions are valued and my work is not routine. I am lucky to have a great career that I learning more and more and developing my skills while balancing my family life. The company is striving and making all efforts to ensure employee satisfaction is met. Health and wellness benefits have in enhanced in 2014, the company has generous time off policy, summer days and Birthday’s off.

    Cons

    In business there is always room for growth and improvement. I am always impressed by the positive energy that is always looking or the solution for whatever problem that arises. That focus on the bigger picture helps DBA grow as a company.

    Advice to Management

    More one on one time with junior staff .

    I worked at Digital Brand Architects full-time

    Pros

    Amazing spirit.The reason I came to the company because of the newness and the passion that resulted from that newness. The East Coast leader, Karen is one of the most passionate and enterprising people I've ever known. There is an overall energy that made me want to be apart of the process.

    Cons

    To some degree there were still start up elements. They were definitely still in the process of figuring out how to design their staff and where their capabilities would begin and end. The talent felt in good hands (and they were) but I know some of the staff didn't know which way was up

    Advice to Management

    Have a more singular idea of who you want working with the firm

    Advice to Management

    Depending on team, management and their commitment to their team varied greatly.
