Pros

Put on major clients right off the bat. Great training and great inside look at how big-budget advertising happens. Fun to work in the heart of Manhattan and work around some truly talented and inspiring people.

Cons

Of course crazy hours (like working til 1am), but that's to be expected. In-fighting and politics are hard to avoid.

Advice to Management

Don't be afraid of the new up-and-comers. The better they look, the better you look.
