    I worked at Gragg Advertising full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    • Your peers are wonderful! Some of the best friendships have begun because of Gragg. • Outside of supper management on occasion, work/life balance is perfectly on check. Working late and weekends is never required and rarely needed. • The job is 100% what you put into it. If you want to learn and be challenged, there are people and opportunities. • Location! River Market is a great spot for lunch breaks - tons... of lunch options/happy hour variety.

    Cons

    • There is somewhat of a cap to your growth. You are on their map of promotion windows and title structure. It is possible for growth & promotion, just definitely a “prove it”/“earn it” model. • Not much collaboration between departments. Social is separate from paid search, separate from creative/traditional strategy.

    Advice to Management

    Yes, keeping the client happy is goal number one for any ad agency. But, the people who manage and deal with client requests and campaigns on a day-to-day basis would be more willing to go above and beyond to make that happen if management showed them more appreciation and gave more credit. (There are other ways outside of monetary compensation)

    I worked at Gragg Advertising full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    I worked there for two years and learned more in the job than anywhere else I worked. Their approach of direct response forces everyone to be accountable for their job duties and to generate results for the client. It allows for great feedback all the time. Management works in the trenches with the team. Hands on CEO, who cares about the people

    Cons

    Fast paced. If you are an entitled millennial this is not the place for you. We did not sit around and drink espresso and eat avocado toast.

    Advice to Management

    Keep training and teaching. Maybe also add in a better profit sharing program.
