    Pros

    A lot of responsibility is given from an early stage, providing space for growth and opportunity. You feel like you and your work matters - you'll never feel isolated in any way! Company culture's great.

    Cons

    As a medium sized multicultural agency, opportunities are there but may be limited compared to bigger agencies

    I worked at Intertrend full-time

    Pros

    This agency is a place where it's what you make of it. If you want to advance, there is nothing stopping you.

    Cons

    Sometimes slow moving and a lot of meetings to attend weekly.

    I worked at Intertrend full-time

    Pros

    - the biggest Asian American/Asian ad agency (which is a very niche market)
    - has Fortune 500 clients
    - some ad agency perks, like nicer/more interesting work environment than traditional corporate
    - some great co-workers

    Cons

    - LOW PAY
    - low mobility
    - low morale
    - very political
    - managers don't help you grow
    - not transparent to employees, some things are even shady (i.e. all the positive reviews on the company were written on the same day, same time frame? just coincidence?)

    Advice to Management

    - start to really care about your employees
    - don't be passive aggressive
    - don't only choose to hear things you want to hear and find reasons to deny what you don't want to hear

    Negative Outlook

    I worked at Intertrend full-time

    Pros

    Good client roster & because small agency, you get to experience more as a junior level employee. OK work/balance for most part.

    Cons

    - low pay
    - low morale
    - lack of company culture
    - low mobility
    - very political
    - hiring based on connection & not experience
    - doesn't mirror how typical agencies function (not necessarily a con, but should be stated)
    - lack of passionate people (there are definitely those who are, but also many that seem to be working there for the sake of having a job)

    Advice to Management

    start taking care of your employees

    I have been working at Intertrend full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    collaborative, friendly, lots of hard working staff, Fortune 500 clients, small company means you get to work on a lot of different things, Fortune 500 clients are great but the company also does a lot of work for pro bono clients which shows they care about the community, especially Long Beach.

    Cons

    nothing that isn't true for all ad agencies...if you're looking for a routine/predictable day type of job, don't look here.

    Advice to Management

    get to know the young staff because there might be hidden talents there.

    I worked at Intertrend full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    I got to learn a lot about the advertising industry through interTrend. The company's culture is very family oriented and thats one of the things I liked the most in a working environment. I got to meet a lot of impactful people in the industry and be inspired by all the game changers that the agency is connected to.

    Cons

    Work hours might be a bit rough sometimes, but it comes with the job. On the bright side, you learn a lot and also bond closely with all your co-workers.

    Advice to Management

    Might need to hire 1 or 2 more people in each department with all the additional work coming in.

    Professional environment, friendly colleagues, an amazing roster of clients, great opportunity for career growth.

    Some clients limit our growth due to our background as an Asian American Agency.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the good work!

    I have been working at Intertrend full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    - One of the biggest Asian Market agencies
    - Has a lot of fun activities just like all other big agencies

    Cons

    - Have to learn everything on you own (they pretty much just dump everything on you and have you figure it out)
    - If you don't want to be stuck in the Asian market, don't work here
    - Very political
    - Under pay

    Advice to Management

    - Be more transparent to you subordinates
    - Appreciate your subordinates
    - Don't be threatened if your subordinates are smarter than you

    Pros

    Proactive about team building but I hear that's common among the Asian Advertising Agencies.

    Cons

    Base most strategies on assumptions, seems like a very costly way to test your theories on how to roll out campaigns.

    Advice to Management

    Work on your reputation of "political environment"
