      Pros

      The company does great work and has a lot of resources for different projects by nature of being a large agency. There are lots of opportunities for advancement and career development/learning resources. There are constant creative/innovative projects with various clients and the company remains committed to an inclusive and diverse work environment.

      Cons

      By nature of being such a large company, sometimes projects may feel like a silo work environment by different teams being tasked with different aspects of projects. This is not necessarily a bad thing - but rather comes with the territory of working for a large agency.
