      Best Job I Ever Had ~ McAnn-Erickson Detroit in the Top of Troy Building

      Oct 9, 2014 - Vice President, Group Account Director in Troy, MI

      Pros

      Given freedom with responsibility, to build a business within the group I supervised. Lots of talented hard-working people. A mature culture that blended fun with work. Advertising on behalf of Buick Motor Division that has stood the test of time. A real sense of family and a genuine respect for the people who helped build the business. Award winning catalog program. A great work environment with professional offices and amenities.

      Cons

      The job security can be disheartening because of the dynamic changes in the way General Motors sources their agency work. By General Motors treating their ad agency's work like commodities that are no different than buying nuts and bolts, they prevent the establishment of a stable work force that buys their products. The car allowance was way under what it cost to own and operate a Buick Motor Division vehicle under three-years old.

      Pros

      Great work environment, Nice People, Steady day-to-day work, great perks and work/life balance. I've worked at several agencies and Mithun has provided me with the best agency experience to date. I think this agency is really turning a corne, bringing in some new talent, building out teams and pitching new business. I see a really bright future ahead. It's a very exciting time for Mithun/Compass Point!

      Cons

      None that I can think of!
