    I worked at Goodby, Silverstein & Partners full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    People really have fun working together. In general you play as hard as you work. The office environment is super casual and great work is well rewarded. Booze in the office, lunch trunk visits and summer concert events keep things light. During my time, there was a great office culture with a parody Daily Show created by employees which really helped fuel the company spirit. Holiday party is always off-the-hook.

    Cons

    Not exactly the most attractive of client lists and the creative department gets away with murder with their laziness because they are the Kings and Queens of the agency. Office politics is a mess like any other company but the egomaniac creatives definitely make it worse. One of the "pros" mentioned regarding a Daily Show was actually not 100% approved by the partners so boo on them for not recognizing the huge amount of office culture it injected to the company.

    Advice to Management

    Holding creative in higher regard does not breed a strong team ethic. One, it takes every department to succeed and two, it makes your creative teams lazy.

    "Get it on the resume and bail"

    Pros

    GS&P has enough clout, tenacity and talent to pull off some cool campaigns. But those camps are rare and with the rapid growth at GSP you're more than likely not going to be working on the cool stuff.

    The name still carries plenty of weight in the industry and it does attract smart, talented people. Get it, get it on the resume and bail use it (quickly) to move on to healthier and more vital company.

    Cons

    The senior management has no idea how to scale the success of GSP. What was once a prestige boutique is now a troubled teen struggling (with all the tantrums and drama that implies) with becoming a seasoned adult.

    Advice to Management

    Quit. Please. Too chiefs with no clue how to do anything short of an over expensive :30.
