    I have been working at Health4Brands full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Some very smart, talented teams. Management is good when they are around, but often pulled in many directions. Good vibe and laid back culture.

    Cons

    Agency has grown quite large in the past 5-10 years and process/structure is still catching up. Finance is driving force behind everything (as is such with all agencies) but can sometimes hinder teams from focusing on quality work and Client needs. Procurement process needs a lot of help.

    Advice to Management

    There used to be a great sense of community and pride at Chelsea years ago. You wanted to be a part of a great Agency and the momentum took us to positive, steady growth. I don't know what the solution is, but there is lack of management presence now--feels like no one is home to help rally and unify everyone. Things aren't bad and business is functioning--but just seems like an ordinary place when it can be something great again.

    Pros

    You won't find a nicer bunch of people.

    Cons

    Management doesn't always seem to know what they're trying to achieve, or how to get there.

    Advice to Management

    Create, socialize and drive toward a strategic vision.

    I worked at Health4Brands (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Great people, innovative environment, lots of growth and opportunities.

    Cons

    Frat boy atmosphere, my boss didn't understand what I did all he cared about was selling business....whether the client needed it or not. Larger clients are the focus. The smaller ones get lost in the fray.

    Advice to Management

    You probably don't need 3 partners....figure out which one should go.

    Pros

    Good People - The people here are great to work with. They are all very smart and nice. I truly feel like we have a community within this large network and everyone is always willing to help out.

    Creative Work - I work with some of the best creative people here and I am very proud of the creative campaigns that this company produces.

    Work/Life Balance - Like any other advertising agency, there are some late nights. But you are never alone and there is a sense of comradery. The company also appreciates when you have other passions or activities outside of work and is very accommodating to that.

    Benefits - Overall benefits are great. Good salary, health plans, commuter benefits, discounts on a phone plan, travel, entertainment, etc.

    Cons

    Opportunity for growth - Would like a more structured way to provide formal feedback. New hire generally receives a 3-month review, but then there aren't any formal reviews after that.

    Pros

    The work they produce is excellent. Great artistic team

    Cons

    Hostile environment. People curse and yell at each other. They allow bad behavior and bullying. When you complain they get rid of you. I can't recommend working here.

    Advice to Management

    Learn the basic rules of managing people. And follow procedures. Playing favorites leads to bad feelings.

    I worked at Health4Brands full-time

    Pros

    Laid back atmosphere, some of the people, the salary, and location are great.

    Cons

    Work/life balance? What balance? The salary is great, but keep in mind you're also getting paid to work 2 out of 5 weekends of the month, and work most nights until at least 7 (but more frequently 8, 9, 10, midnight, 1 am) with little to no advance notice.

    Most senior leadership cares more about making their numbers (and their bonuses, which are not shared with the rest of the team), than the sanity of their employees and it shows with the lightspeed of turnover (staff of 20, with 20 people who came and went in a year).

    For many departments, there is no learning curve, it is trial by fire (which is also a factor in the turnover).

    High stress, high anxiety, fast turnaround, low reward.
