    I worked at JWT Specialized Communications full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Amazing people, work is very creative, challenging and interesting. Great culture but that varies office to office.

    Cons

    A lot of silos and management that (used to anyway) encourage it. Penny-wise and pound foolish in a lot of ways. Gets hurt more than helped by being part of JWT/WPP - particularly in regards to resources.

    Advice to Management

    Embrace what you do well and don't make promises you can't deliver - particularly in new business pitches.

    No opinion of CEO

    I worked at JWT Specialized Communications full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Great client base and great creative ideas. However, the creative excellence is very concentrated to specific markets. No real quality constancy.

    Cons

    A national organization which spends a great deal of time accomplishing initatives set by control groups which are not in touch with the local mind set of the client base.

    Advice to Management

    Watch for the shining stars and hold on to them....get rid of the burn outs.
