    I have been working at OLIVER Agency full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    I haven't come across a bad person yet. Everyone actually knows what they're doing, so even when work can get stressful, it's only because there's a lot to do and not because you have to hold anyone's hand while they try to figure out what to do. Free candy/espresso every day, and every few days, cookies/donuts are brought in. Can work from home if you absolutely have to (although working in office is the...

    Cons

    For some, the downtown location is a far commute, but office is close to subways. The office is on the small side, but they're apparently going to move to a bigger downtown office soon. Espresso offered, but not coffee, if you prefer coffee. Sometimes you have to work past 6 o'clock, without overtime, but that's just the nature of the marketing/studio field.

    Advice to Management

    Do whatever you can to make sure we don't have to work past 6. Obviously, things can sometimes come up at the last minute, but if late nights can be avoided, a bunch of us would love that.

    I worked at OLIVER Agency full-time

    Pros

    The people are great as individuals, because you bond over the fact that you're all drowning with no support whatsoever

    Cons

    The central team don't understand what you do at your respective site or how things work there and they don't want to understand it either. They make decisions which have negative consequences without listening to you when you explain why it would be detrimental to the account at your particular site. They pave over everything you've tried to explain and then you have to carry the burden of explaining to the client why...

    Advice to Management

    Maybe listen?........You actually DON'T know better than the on site teams about what's best for that account.
