Pros

Ok, so they don't pay you the highest salary ever. But believe me, the work environment makes up for it. Huge opportunity for growth over time, and a flexible senior management group that lets you take your own path (with a little bit of convincing, of course).

Cons

Siloed. Many clients are not the most interesting to make ads for, but the flip side of that is that they don't keep you working all night (most of the time). The agency is perpetually understaffed, but only enough so that it becomes difficult when we have a high workload. I've worked at other agencies that are worse in this regard.

    I worked at Martin|Williams full-time

    Pros

    Great coworkers
    Easy commute to downtown location

    Cons

    Very little room for growth depending on your department. And unfortunately some of that growth depends on winning new business which Martin Williams hasn't done in years.

    Advice to Management

    I'd like to see upper management do a little more hands on work for the team. Less micromanaging; go ahead and get your hands dirty. The glass of merlot will still be there when you reply to that email or show up to that meeting.
