I worked at GSD&M full-time (More than a year)

Pros

Good people who are willing to go above and beyond personally and professionally
Great building - it's great but feels kind of empty
Parties and stuff - get some good parties and bands in for events

Cons

Settling for just OK - whereas most agencies seem to want to push it, GSD&M seems fine to just do as their told
Lack of vision - I've heard "in the old days" there was a sense of where things were going. Don't see that anymore.
A lot of senior people who just seem to be getting by -

Advice to Management

Listen and do something. It's not 1998 anymore - what's next?

    I worked at GSD&M full-time

    Pros

    Fun events, parites and concerts on premise. For the most part, people have a good work/life balance compared to other agencies I've worked at. Austin is pretty great too.

    Cons

    Really difficult to move up, and if you do, they rarely give raises with promotions. You see a lot of great people quitting that haven't gotten raises in 5 years, and then GSDM will hire a new person at a higher salary to fill their spot. That's pretty frustrating.

    Advice to Management

    Show your employees you value them.
