I worked at Digital Brand Architects full-time (More than a year)

Pros

Free cupcakes
Opportunities to take ownership of your work
Cool clients

Cons

Zero work life balance
Owners let clients walk all over junior staff members
Zero transparency
Owners use company money for personal expenses (spa days, first class plane tickets)
Employees are expected to be on call 24/7
Promotions are given in title only
Junior staff is underpaid
High staff turn over
Bad benefits

Advice to Management

Don't be hypocritical - e.g. don't let clients walk all over employees and then say you "put employees first"
Be honest and transparent - it goes a long way for boosting morale
Charge clients more for your services and hire more staff members - that way you won't have to one employee on five accounts
