I worked at True North Inc. full-time (More than 3 years)

Pros

Talented team, great work environment. Room for growth and career opportunities. Upper management always puts employees first.

Cons

Nothing unusually more than what a typical ad agency goes through. Sometimes a few growing pains.

    Pros

    Big clients. Foster a learning environment, where if you can learn quickly you'll be an effective contributer in no time. No annoying timesheets or "your performance review is basically based on hours worked".

    Cons

    Somewhat of a con... workers expected to do all the pushing themselves for advancement and salary growth. Not really a con, but it would have been nice to know that rewards don't just come to those work hard and effectively, but you have to be forward about wanting them too.

    Advice to Management

    Interface a little more with those doing the grunt work. Not that you have to micromanage or be "best friends", but the occasional real-time check in (rather than yearly performance review or the like) makes for a more engaged workplace.


  2. "Great people with high performance standards."

    I worked at True North Inc. full-time

    Pros

    Great culture—often feels like a family. Great portfolio of big logos, including a number of great non-profit organizations. Collaborative environment with a high bar for employee performance. Lots of fun team events and happy hours. Regular interaction between NY and SF office keeps things interesting.

    Cons

    Fairly regular rate of employee churn (typical for an agency). Relatively low rate of compensation by industry standards.
