    Great place to work. I got hired right out of college. It's a fantastic place to learn the advertising business. Buckle down, put in the hours, and you'll come out ahead of the game.

    Pros

    leo is a place undergoing a lot of change right now, as our industry does. that always creates anger and fear, but the people at leo, the individuals, are the people i want to be in the trenches with.

    Cons

    it may be too big for it's own good. publicis is very 'hands on' without possibly having the foresight to be as productive as they'd like to be. we also dont get promotions, raises, staffing or infrastructure support to meet their ever raising standards.

    Advice to Management

    be patient and don't freak out. it's a good place to be. maybe not as much right now, but in the long run, the people here now will be glad they were.
