I have been working at Saatchi & Saatchi full-time (More than 5 years)

Pros

I was treated fairly well. they try to make it a good place to work. not a lot of pitches. very few weekends. I worked on the Toyota biz. The clients were nice and didn't meddle. rarely even came to shoots.

Cons

Politics within the groups. Some backstabbing. Too much attitude. This "you have to go get another offer before we'll give you a raise" was BS.
They constantly flip top management. which just rains confusion and shuffle. They wacked 7 creative directors right at christmas. nice. that made me start to sniff around for something else. they expect loyalty, but offer none.
How do you remove a guy who was just named Adweek's "West coast agency leader of the year"?

    I have been working at Saatchi & Saatchi full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    My director was great - smart, creative, inventive

    Cons

    Upper management was a mystery - CEO is strange and created this weird "Lovebrands" ideas, which doesn't seem to hold much traction with clients or staff. My group or "silo" team was very cliquish and very rah-rah yuppie - company clones -- a very "un-real" environment

    Advice to Management

    Develop a culture that let's people be themselves
