    Pros

    Financially sound. Relaxed work environment. Good co-workers. Good balance between work/family life. Base salary is pretty good for the area.

    Cons

    Outside of base salary, benefits are not that great - medical coverage is actually pretty expensive compared to other places I've worked. Merit increases are paltry (less than 3%) considering that they have all this cash on hand. No bonus.

    I can't speak for other positions, but in my case there is no room for advancement. If I were to stay at FCB for the next 20 years, I'd probably be doing the same thing then that I do now. Some people may like that, but for me I need something more challenging and exciting.

    Technology is a bit behind the times. We JUST got upgraded to Office 2007 on our workstations. And many co-workers still have huge CRT monitors at their desks (circa 1995).

    Advice to Management

    Offer employees more incentives to want to stick around. Small merit increases aren't going to cut it for young professionals who want a challenging career.
