    I worked at Laughlin/Constable full-time for more than 2 years

    Pros

    Members of the development team were by far the best part of the job. Everyone is extremely friendly and happy to help. Whether it's being added for a code review or brainstorming through a problem. When I joined, I was definitely a green employee and probably pretty frustrating to work with. However, no one ever made me feel that I was an idiot and I have them to thank for how much I've grown. Also, flexible hours...

    Cons

    Unlimited PTO starts as a plus, but the culture seems to push that since it's unlimited, you shouldn't take any unless you don't have any deadlines close by, which never happens. However, might just be pressure that I put on myself. Also, very heavy drinking culture. Can be a lot of fun, but there seems to be an idea that unless you hang out outside of work, you aren't really a part of the team. Gets hard on the liver.

    Pros

    Relaxed office culture, Cool office space, great tech (laptops and monitors),

    Cons

    unlimited PTO is a joke, most people are too overworked to even take time off Very inclusive, clique culture that is hard for new people to break into Real financial problems, lots of layoffs, not winning new business and losing scope on existing business Most accounts are understaffed Management is not transparent about the company's struggle Leadership is living in the past, haven't been able to stay...

    Pros

    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..

    Pros

    Sharp, committed people in all disciplines, at all levels. Interesting work that involves integrated teams.

    Cons

    'Command and control' style of some top-level people can be stifling.

    I have been working at Laughlin/Constable full-time for more than 2 years

    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,...

    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.

    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...
