    Pros

    Industry leading talent, lots of career development workshops, lots of production resources within he agency, great benefits for new parents through IPG (6 weeks paid leave), coffee bar, and weekly in-agency food vendors for lunch.

    Cons

    Difficult to get promotions, lots of emphasis on working on new business pitches, long hours and sometimes weekend work (typical in advertising), salaries are below average

    Advice to Management

    Reward the day to day account maintenance as well as participation in new business pitches. Once an account is won it takes a lot of work to keep the client happy.

    Pros

    Loved the true seamless interagency culture. This allowed us to bring the absolute best to our clients. Very competitive but also supportive. Unbelievably talented people who improve year over year. I miss them and working for this amazing organization.

    Cons

    They celebrate being an individual but there is a type and middle management can sometimes create Stepford employees, which goes against what I have seen encouraged by senior management.

    Advice to Management

    Make sure middle management drives home what senior management has worked so hard to create. Also look below middle management many of the jewels of your company are hidden under their supervisors.

    Pros

    Good environment with good people who encourage personal growth and learning. We were also encouraged to find new, more efficient ways about solving problems. Company itself is poised for growth and future success.

    Cons

    Fun environment, but would often lead to unprofessional environment. Though management was smart, motivated, involved, and likable, they would greatly benefit from professional training (as would most organizations). Pay is low, but aligned with industry standards.

    Pros

    My colleagues. We all shared our misery.

    Cons

    It is a revolving door. Upper management points fingers at lower level hires and never looks at their part in creating this massive dysfunction and they do nothing to try to create a better environment when they are told. The focus is on CYA as opposed to truly solving problems and being productive.

    Advice to Management

    You can hire and fire away but that does not resolve the many problems. Solve the problems in the process. Everyone can't be wrong or at fault. Take responsibility.

    Pros

    Great creatives, good leadership, and a dedication to learning make FCBa great place to grow in experience and title very quickly.

    Cons

    Although the open floor plan helps communication, it also lends to easy distractions and a lack of privacy. Also, teams tend to be isolated from each other.

    Advice to Management

    My advice would be to create more spaces for people to escape distraction and work in privacy, and spaces for employees to unwind, for example a game room.
