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

Pros

New ideas, fresh concepts, cool culture, great location.

Cons

Long hours, thankless clients, demanding account directors, overall lack of appreciation. But that's typical in advertising.

Advice to Management

A few account directors need to go.....

    I worked at Swirl full-time

    Pros

    Lots of projects, ability to experience a diverse range of assignments and clients.

    Cons

    Creative and agency leadership lacks drive to do great work. There is a tremendous amount of uninspired, churn and burn projects. Upper management is completely out of touch with the creatives and there is very little room for career advancement.

    Advice to Management

    Invest in the creative side of the building. Hire some new creative directors. Keep the current talent you have by paying them well, respecting their contributions, and providing them with the ability to learn from great creative directors.

    Pros

    There are no egos here

    Cons

    Stale working environment
    I felt very out of the loop while working here

    Advice to Management

    You don't seem to value your employees time. No appreciation or rewards for working around the clock. Also, you should really let them drink the diet cokes. They *do* deserve it.
