    Pros

    There are multiple opportunities average for promotions and rotations onto other accounts, as there are a wide range of high profile accounts to work on. There is good communication throughout the agency as opposed to other media agencies. Strong focus on the review process. Widely respected agency.

    Cons

    Poor middle-level management on certain accounts. Work/life balance not regarded as important by individual teams while HR may try to focus on it. Better team organization and structure needed for some accounts. High turnover which results in higher stress levels.

    Advice to Management

    Take better care of employees to lower turnover rates. Conduct heavier screening of management - not just rely on personal connections. Tougher interviewing process for management levels based on their management expertise in addition to their media expertise. Promotions occur at a very young age and often people are not prepared for management roles and supervising a team. Training should be provided with promotions.

    Pros

    Everything is hands on experience. You are assigned to a team and get to work on a real account. They also have "Lunch and Learns" every Friday where you learn something about the business or the company. It's a great platform for anyone who is interested in working within the media industry. It was also fun working with the other interns. It's also paid!

    Cons

    I absolutely loved my experience at MediaVest. If I have to list cons, it would be that the hours can occasionally be long and you are not paid overtime. They're pretty good about letting interns leave on time but sometimes there might be an emergency.

    Advice to Management

    The program is amazing! Everyone walks away with a greater knowledge of the industry. Offer internships in the fall and spring!!
