    I worked at Starcom Worldwide full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Good training program. Casual dress environment. Free sodas, swag, magazines and other little perks.

    Cons

    The main problem, at a low level at least, is that you are treated as completely replaceable, interchangeable and of little value. They (some managers) will even tell you that your role is menial and that you are essentially doing a worthless job. What a way to motivate new employees! The entry level jobs are pretty cookie cutter, truth be told, and many people leave after a year or two.

    Experiences vary widely depending on what team you are with, and you never really know where you will end up, so in addition to being menial you are relatively powerless to direct your career. To add insult to injury there is shockingly poor compensation for entry level positions.

    Advice to Management

    Treat all workers as valuable. Part of this is better compensation, but morale is just generally poor because people are constantly treated as (and sometimes told they are) cogs in a machine.
