    Brilliant people.
    Company culture is great.
    Leadership truly cares about its employees.
    Great moves to get the best new CCO in place.

    Cons

    Dev lacks some industry standard knowledge. If LC is building websites everyone on the project should have an idea of what’s going on..

    I have been working at Laughlin/Constable full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Most creatives are able to work on a wide breadth of clients.
    Because LC is independent, you're seen as more than "just a number," and you're valued for your expertise at all levels.
    Compared to other ad agencies in Chicago, the work/life balance at LC is superb. Majority of employees are able to leave work on time every day.
    Lots of awesome agency events and a relaxed culture – minimal dress code, open floor environment, and happy hours every couple of weeks.

    Cons

    Significantly lacks diversity.
    Can occasionally be slightly difficult working across two offices, but for the most part, the teams have solidified workarounds and ways to make it work.

    Focused on great ideas, well executed. Digital team continues to grow and evolve adding firepower rarely seen elsewhere. Great work environment.

    Cons

    Should encourage individual learning and development more

    Advice to Management

    Great company with great heritage has turned the corner to a new kind of ad world, stay open minded and focused on ideas behind the execution

    Pros

    Some excellent Milwaukee and Chicago talent goes through its doors, resulting in some very beautiful work...however, the big talent doesn't stay because of management

    The new Chicago office is beautiful, the Milwaukee office has some nice bits to it and some old areas that need updating

    Cons

    Their head of digital is awful...an unkind, short-sighted person

    The remaining founder is trapped in ideas of what agencies should be from years ago, and is afraid of both change and what it takes to be an innovative agency in modern times

    The agency as a whole WANTS to modernize its processes, offerings, and culture but the highest levels of management are so averse to change, letting younger minds shine, that they are becoming less relevant day by day. It is only by sheer will power of its younger employees that they aren't completely left in the dust by their contemporaries

    They work you to death. I myself, along with at least two others, experienced stretches of 2-3 days where we didn't go home in order to prepare for deliverables/pitches, taking on all responsibilities without more senior members getting their hands dirty and sharing the load
