What people are saying about McKinney
All Things MBB
Hello, I’m reading “the firm”, and this quote stood out to me in ch 7: > “The job of a ceo is to keep your own job. Even your most reliable lieutenants have a tendency to stab u in the back. So the smart CEO’s hire expensive, albeit structurally disloyal lieutenants in the form of consultants. […] roger smith leaned on McKinsey to keep his top job at General Motors. Robert Allen did the same at at&t. Phillip mercell, a McKinney alumnus did the same at Morgan Stanley” What do u think?

McKinney has a great building, great atmosphere, relaxed dress, and amazing culture. The agency is truly integrated and produces great work. The triangle is one of he best places to live in the country
Advertising is a crazy business and is not for everyone.Many people hop around agency to agency, but McKinney bucks the trend and has a solid core, but still some have to move on to move up.

McKinney is a fantastic environment, family friendly and work life balance isn't too difficult to maintain if you keep to your own principles. They have very creative ideas, extremely friendly people to work with and foster a community spirit that gives you friends for life. The office is a super fun place to be, Pub Thursdays, benefits, etc all make it a very appealing place to work and one of the best spaces to place yourself in for the Triangle. Compared to working in a big ad market, working in Durham is a breath of fresh air and a much slower pace.
But compensation while competitive, doesn't grow with you, promotions are intrinsically tied to politics and are hard to come by with many people leaving as a result, and leadership is often more concerned with themselves than employee development and training. New business also seems to be lacking currently which is stagnating an agency that is confused about who they want to be.4
