I worked at SmithBucklin full-time (More than 3 years)

Pros

You make a lot of connections and can develop a lot of new skills. The creative team is a tight knit group of people and management is very protective of the creatives. The work is often diverse-ranging from print, web, video, identity, social media, etc. Mac environment.

Cons

Often there is too much work from one person. Not a lot of opportunity for upward mobility. Pay is a little on the skimpy side. Benefits shrunk while I was there.
