    Pros

    The people are great and the company is a wonderful and safe place to start your career and the build a solid foundation for work/life balance and how to maintain it.

    Cons

    Not a creative or data driven agency, mostly just use those terms loosely. If you are interested in growth, I hope you came through a referral, because the higher you go the more games you will have to play.

    Advice to Management

    Transparency isn't something for the clients only - you should try practicing it in house.
