    I have been working at Domus, Inc. full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    - Domus is an entrepreneurial advertising agency. The skillset you aquire working there includes sales, marketing, finance, operations and overall know-how of how to run a business

    - Co-workers at Domus are talented and friendly. People are focused on supporting each other to solve challenges and deliver great results for clients

    - Domus Senior Management is highly involved in running the business. Junior and Mid-level employees have an opportunity to receive training from company leaders and gain experience working on high-level agency and client projects

    - The agency offers a diverse client roster with experience doing work for Merck, Lutron, OKI Data, DuPont and Diageo among others

    - Domus has a work from home policy that allows for flexibility. Company social events and outings are held several times throughout the year.

    - Great location in Center City Philadelphia

    Cons

    - As part of agency’s commitment to client service, employees work additional hours outside normal business hours to deliver on client deadlines when needed. Work from home policy helps employees with this.

    - Entrepreneurial environment means working on very challenging projects at times but gaining great experience in return

    Advice to Management

    - Continue with agency strategy of commitment to excellent client service
    - Leverage success of recent new business wins

    I worked at Domus, Inc. full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    The location isn't bad. They used to get bagels every week. Lots of different kinds of cream cheese. That's about it.

    Cons

    Leadership that threatens instead of leading. Employees clearly aren't valued - instead they are underpaid, overworked, and threatened all for work that's mediocre at best. They also have a nasty habit of misleading clients, as much of their portfolio consists of one-offs from the 90s.

    Advice to Management

    Put down the wine and the pills and just walk away. Leave work to the employees who know what they're doing.

    Pros

    Ummm... they have free coffee??

    Cons

    There are SO MANY downsides. But the bottom line is, the work isn't creative or innovative, they recycle the same (very) tired ideas, and management is not at all supportive or particularly kind. I've never worked at an agency where management did LESS to try to get new clients/business. They have very few clients and I heard they are downsizing their office. The future does NOT look bright.

    Advice to Management

    Focus on getting clients and delivering great work. Right now, you don't do either.

    Pros

    Domus provides an excellent work environment and gives you an opportunity to work with a diverse and excellent clientele. The biggest strength of Domus is the people who work for the organization. The diverse experience of the co-workers provides an excellent opportunity to flourish.

    Cons

    Nothing in particular. At times you have to give more than a 100%, which in turn is not really a con.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the good work.

    I worked at Domus, Inc. full-time

    Pros

    None that I can think of.

    Cons

    No support from management. They work you to death. Salaries are very low and hours are ridiculous. Management is unreasonable and out of touch, constantly talking about their "glory days" of 20+ years ago. They constantly threaten and berate employees. The work is terrible. Employee morale and engagement is non-existent. The only way you can marginally succeed is to sell your soul to the devil. Horrible, horrible place.

    Advice to Management

    Focus on building your business. Take better care of your employees.
