    Pros

    They will give you so much of work you will learn almost everything!

    Cons

    - No good seniors: They hire random unexperienced people at senior positions which will make your life tougher than you can imagine.
    - Forget Self Respect: Client can abuse you, make you do silly things which you know are harmful for campaign. But there is no senior who will explain that to client for you.
    - Work/Life Balance? Forget your personal life!!
    - Workload: They hire 2 people for doing the work of 10 people.
    - When you resign. HR will ask you to bring your replacement as they can't hire people on their own.
    - Advice: Never be a minute late and never work for a minute late. you come 1 minute late there is half day. You work 12 hours late, NO PERKS!

    Advice to Management

    Your TOP management is not everything. Junior employees are the people who do all the work. Please give them the respect they deserve.

    Pros

    The only pro here is people can fool each other... no knowledge other than media planning

    Cons

    No career growth. People get appraisals not on basis of work done. No knowledge bank. No recognition what so ever... gave appraisal after delay of 1 year and refused to give the same for next year with argument that this includes 2 years tenure.

    Advice to Management

    Please be system dependent and not people dependent. Train HR on how to hunt skilled resources.
