    Former Employee - Account Executive
    Doesn't Recommend
    Approves of CEO

    Pros

    - Very reputable company
    - Strong committment to high quality and client negotiation
    - Great experience on a wide-range of activities (but not accounts)

    Cons

    - No work/life balance - even though it's preached about, it's not practiced at all or fully supported
    - Too much attention to politics regarding promotions, not enough on hard work
    - Anyone without a cheerleader-esque, type A personality need not apply
    - Compensation doesn't match what you put into work
    - While possibly good at actual work, people put into management positions with little experience or training, resulting in poor guidance and disgruntled employees
    - Very little opportunity to grow outside of primary account
    - Clients can be...very...difficult.

    Advice to Management

    Appreciate your employees. Encourage positive feedback, ample compensation, discourage rampant politics and allow employees to have a life outside of their 9 hour days without feeling like they're limiting their career.
