    Pros

    Now that FCB has taken over ICC there is renewed optimism that the company is moving in the right direction. Upper management is committed to the success of this company.

    Staff need to put the past aside and move forward positively.

    I worked at Integrated Communications Corporation full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Good vacation time package, close to highways and shops

    Cons

    Very political creative department. If you don't agree with the Creative Director's idea of what makes a good concept (which is very narrow) -- then you are shunned. The agency is completely account-driven. Creatives upstairs are fearful of account people downstairs. An EVP, account has been known to tell creatives that they are all "commodities" who are easily replaceable. Stay away!

    I worked at Integrated Communications Corporation (More than a year)

    Pros

    Now that I have left, I realize that this place was better than I thought. Clients are frustrating everywhere but at least the co-workers were smart and nice

    Cons

    My account was not staffed properly

    Fill open positions quicker

    I worked at Integrated Communications Corporation full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Really wonderful people who are the employees ofcourse. Building not bad except that everyone has been crammed into cubicles but that's manageable.

    Cons

    The worst management ruling with fear and intimidation. Total and complete lack of communication from the top echelons whilst rumors are pervasive. People leaving in droves WITHOUT future employment which I think says it all about the dysfunctionalilty of the place

    Advice to Management

    Why don't you get off your a.... and go upstairs to see what's going on there. Stop bringing people to forums where they have to listen to the management go on and on with motivational input which never seems to go anywhere. Constant shuffling, layoffs and firings. A culture of fear pervades the place

    Pros

    Salaries and benefits are decent

    Cons

    Project management is inept and frenzied.

    Advice to Management

    Your account managers and client contacts are equally clueless, so hire competent, experienced people who can get the job done without the drama. It's advertising, not rocket science!

    Pros

    The pay rate was okay, but come to find out later, fellow coworkers in same position made more. Nice building with small, limited cafe. Decent commute, near major highways, restaurants, shopping, etc. Ample vacation, sick, and holiday time off (bonus...week between Christmas and New Years the company was closed).

    Cons

    Management was horrible, no support. Same applies to HR and CEO level personnel. Unfair treatment of employees.

    Advice to Management

    Need to "clean house" of dead weight in management. Need to promote those who do their jobs and do them well.

    Pros

    Good coworkers. benefits of larger company with smaller feel

    Cons

    Needed better EVPs which they now have. Hoping they can make better/quicker, more consistent decisions with less of a "pro client; anti employee" feeling

    Advice to Management
